Each tablet contains: Diamine Oxidase (DAO) enzyme (range of 20,000-30,000 HDU per tablet from pig kidney protein extract) in a small 5mm tablet. Fillers: Microcrystalline cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose. Glazing agent: ethyl cellulose, potato starch. Stabilizers: sodium alginate, magnesium stearate, medium chain fatty acids. Glossing agent: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose. Stabilizers: oleic acid, stearic acid.Please note this product is not suitable for vegetarians as each tablet contains 4.2 mg pork kidney protein extract which contains the 20,000-30,00 HDU DAO enzyme.
We can imagine that this may seem confusing! With enzymes, however, the number of mg does not say much about the effectiveness/strength of the enzyme. The exact number of HDU can differ per batch. Diamine Oxidase is a very difficult enzyme, which means that the same efficacy cannot be achieved every time per batch.
