FODMATE is an innovative enzyme formula designed for short-term use that can help support digestive health, including relief from occasional cramping, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation that may result from the consumption of high FODMAP foods.
FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols. FODMAPs are fermentable fibers such as sugar alcohols and “short-chain” carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the digestive tract. The health benefits of consuming fermentable, prebiotic fibers are irrefutable. These fibers feed the microbiome and provide other documented health benefits. Yet, these fermentable fibers can be difficult to break down.
Thus, intake can lead to issues such as:
- Abdominal distention
- Abdominal pain
A low FODMAP diet is intended as a short-term solution. People typically struggle with compliance on the very restrictive low FODMAP diet. It’s also confusing and frustrating. Plus, it comes with the threat of potentially starving the microbiome, as the diet is intentionally deprived of diverse fibers that feed the beneficial organisms in the gut. Thus, cutting out high FODMAP foods is not a practical and permanent solution.
Benefits of FODMATE
- Digestive enzyme blend helps break down potentially troublesome FODMAPs
- Helps overcome occasional digestive issues without the need for a complicated, restrictive diet
- Enhances efficacy of low FODMAP diet when greater restrictions are necessary
- Promotes continued consumption of nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich, plant-based foods
- Improves restrictive diet compliance while reducing confusion, frustration, and other challenges to quality of life
Serving Size: 2 Capsules
Amount Per Serving
Lactase ... 10,000 ALU
Alpha-Galactosidase ... 1,000 GalU
Proprietary Enzyme Blend ... 730mg
Endo- and Exo- Inulinase
Other Ingredients: Cellulose and vegetarian capsule (cellulose and water)
A common digestive enzyme that breaks down a
wide variety of complex carbohydrates, including
oligosaccharides often found as an active
ingredient in formulas that support relief from
occasional gas and flatulence. The amount of
alpha-galactosidase in FODMATETM is substantially
higher than most competitive formulas.
A common digestive enzyme that breaks down
lactose sugar (primarily found in cow's milk). The
amount of beta-galactosidase in FODMATETM is
substantially higher than many similar formulas.
Proprietary enzyme blend:
• Endo and Exo Inulinase: Simultaneously breaks
down inulin and fructan fibers
• Glucose isomerase: Breaks down fructose sugars
• Pectinase: Breaks down fermentable pectin
Note: FODMATE does not contain enzymes to
break down polyols (the P in FODMAP), so sugar
alcohols and polyol foods may still provoke side
effects for sensitive individuals even while using
Ages 8+: Take two capsules with a meal 2-3 times per day, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Children under the age of 8, please consult with your healthcare practitioner.
