Biozyme - FAQ
Q. On the Bio-Zyme label, what does 10X mean?
A. The designation "X" means "times" – therefore, "10x" means "10 times". The pancreatic enzymes in Bio-Zyme are 10 times more potent that the expected minimum activity. The minimum activity was set by the United States Pharmacopoeia, a scientific body which establishes standards for prescription medications and some dietary supplements.
Q. Why isn’t the Bio-Zyme tablet enteric coated?
A. Enteric-coating is not necessary as the enzymes are buffered with bicarbonate to protect them from stomach acid.
Q. What do you do to ensure the safety of glandular extracts?
A. All glandular used in our products are produced in facilities that are registered and inspected by the United States Department of Agriculture. In addition to federal inspections, all of the glandular materials received at our facility are also subjected to numerous laboratory analyses, including tests for contamination with yeast, molds, and bacteria such as E.coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus.
