First U.S. enzyme supplement for fructose malabsorption

First U.S. enzyme supplement for fructose malabsorption

88 Health Products announces the introduction of FructosAid® brand Xylose Isomerase to address Fructose Malabsorption, the first and only supplement of its kind in the United States.

Fructose Malabsorption, previously known as Dietary Fructose Intolerance, is a digestive complication that can result in abdominal pain, bloating, gas and diarrhea. While experts suggest that up to one third of the general population may be affected, Fructose Malabsorption remains an under-recognized health challenge with few over-the-counter solutions. Fructose Malabsorption should not be confused with Hereditary Fructose Intolerance.

Fructose absorption is limited by the availability and activity of enzymes and transporters sufficient to break down and absorb fructose. FructosAid is the U.S. brand name for Xylose Isomerase (XI), an enzyme that converts dietary fructose in the gut into glucose the body readily absorb and use.

FructosAid is produced under patent by Sciotec Pharma GmbH of Austria, a division of STADA Arzneimittel, and is marketed in the U.S. by 88 Health Products under exclusive license. XI is sold in Europe under the brand name Xylosolv®.

Food allergy and intolerance expert Dr. Janice Joneja, Ph.D., R.D. has endorsed FructosAid and Xylosolv, calling XI “a true blessing for those struggling with the discomfort of Fructose Malabsorption.”
