    Digests phenols

    Tends to soften stools

    No-Fenol was developed by Dr. Devin Houston in response to parents' request for a product that would allow their children to eat fruits and vegetables without the problems thought to be associated with polyphenolic compounds. Initial response from many parents indicate that for many‚ No-Fenol does allow the addition of these foods to the diet without complications.

    All plants contain some degree of phenolic compounds. The phenol structure itself is ubiquitous in nature‚ and is actually essential to many of life's processes. Current thinking by many is that some subset of children on the PDD spectrum have difficulty in the processing of phenolic compounds‚ which may present as behavioral problems and physical symptoms such as red ears and cheeks‚ and dark circles under the eyes. While the basic mechanism behind this phenomenon is not well defined‚ it is thought that perhaps the phenolic compounds become "trapped" in some part of a metabolic cycle‚ presumbably involved with various detoxification pathways.

    The research literature indicates that some phenolic compounds are modified by the addition of carbohydrate groups to their structures‚ which may inhibit their crossing into cells and being metabolized. The current hypothesis for why No-Fenol may help is through the ability of the enzymes in this product to remove the carbohydrate groups from the phenols‚ thus allowing normal processing by the detoxification pathways. There is no evidence that No-Fenol directly modifies phenolic structures. Indeed‚ the success of No-Fenol in allowing the addition of phenolic foods back into the diet of children with PDD may result in a re-evaluation of the basis of the phenol "problem".

    Xylanase is the major component of No-Fenol‚ and is an enzyme used to breakdown the structural components of plant cell walls‚ which are primarily very complex carbohydrates. Xylanase is used in the juice industry to extract more juice from fruit pulp fibers. At least one reference indicates that polyphenolic compounds are actually increased by treatment with xylanase. Based on this reference and the fact that No-Fenol has allowed "phenol-sensitive" individuals to ingest phenolic foods‚ HNI now believes that the phenol issue is much more complex than previously thought‚ and may not be due so much to the presence of phenols as to the specific structure of these phenols.

Serving Size: 1 Capsule

Servings per Container: 90

Amount Per Serving % Daily Value

Enzyme Blend 288 mg *

Xylanase 32‚000 XU

No-Fenol is free of gluten‚ casein‚ soy‚ MSG‚ salicylates‚ sugar‚ and artificial colors. Contains cellulose as filler. Medium-chain triglyceride oil (MCT oil) is added. Capsule made of cellulose.

No upper limit has been established for oral enzyme supplementation. Animal studies indicate that extremely large doses of enzymes may be ingested without toxicity or ill effect. No upper limit has been established for enzyme dosing‚ and animal studies found no toxicity at dosing as high as 80‚000 FXU per kilogram of body weight per day for 13 weeks. No-Fenol is recommended primarily for those with known sensitivities to phenolic compounds.

½ to 1 capsule usually suffices for most meals‚ but not necessarily with every meal. Some have found satisfactory results with once or twice per day dosing‚ indicating that optimal dosing may be dependent upon many factors. High doses can decrease firmness of stools. Decrease dose if stools become too soft - or add Zyme Prime.

Feel free to vary the dosage of No-Fenol based on content and size of meal. Those meals higher in phenols may call for higher doses of No-Fenol. For reasons of practicality‚ no more than 3 capsules need be taken at one time.

Fillers

No-Fenol capsules can be purchased with cellulose/medium-chain triglyceride oil (MCT oil) as filler. The amount of filler used is about 35 mg. MCT oil is derived from coconut‚ and the cellulose is derived from European Spruce trees. The capsule is also cellulose.

Store in a cool‚ dry place away from direct light and humid conditions. Do not refrigerate‚ keep at room temperature. Cold does not harm the enzymes‚ but most refrigerators are high-humidity environments. Freezing is acceptable and encouraged for long-term storage.

    A lifesaver!

    I don't produce the enzymes needed to digest phenols - which is a component of nearly every single healthy colorful food - and have suffered for years with the side effects of the intolerance. Thanks to No Fenol by Houston Enzymes, I can tolerate many more of the foods essential to a healthy body.


    Pros

      Allows me to digest fruits, vegetables, and many other phenolic foods I've had to avoid for years.

    Cons

      Too much use can loosen stools.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    No Fenol helps my son with autism

    I ordered No Fenol because about a year ago, my teenage son with high-functioning autism developed a "cough tic." It started with clearing his throat, and developed into a full single cough, repeated again and again, anytime my son became excited in any way (be it "good" excited, or anxiety). After much trial and error, I deduced it could be the phenols in foods that had built up in his system that led to this (he'd gone on an apple "bender," if you will, just when the tics had started, and he's been gobbling those ever since, along with other "healthy" sources of phenols. So I set out to look for how I might reduce his phenol load, and googled upon No Fenol. We are long time digestive enzyme users, and I felt this was worth a shot. And it was, because my son's tic diminished quickly. Since starting No Fenol, the tic is far more seldom (though not completely gone, it IS completely manageable). I will not be without this product for my son!


    Pros

      Affordable and it works!

    Cons

      Just that the larger size is unavailable when I reorder

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great product!

    We purchased this after a recommendation from our dietician. Our kids are on Feingold diet but unfortunately we cant avoid all phenols ALL the time. No-Fenol allows us freedom to give them the foods containing phenols without worry of a setback. We are very thankful that we were introduced to this product!

    Great Product

    I currently take No-Fenol as part of a diet regimen for leaky gut candida and parasites. As far a I can tell it has helped with digestion of certain vegetables that are high in phenols. I would recommend it for anyone who is experiencing a phenol sensitivity. I also recommend taking epsom salt baths to help with the sensitivity. Peace and good health!

    Helps with high phenolic foods

    My sons ears would get red and his behavior was off when he ate high phenol foods. No-Fenol has helped with those reactions. Would definitely recommend it you have this problem.

    It really does work!

    Before I discovered No-Fenol I had to be very vigilant about keeping to a minimum my sons intake of foods moderate to high in salicylates (which are a type of phenol). Oranges and paprika-containing foods were especially problematic. He would experience significant negative behavior changes if he ate too much of these foods. Now he can eat these foods without problems. It is really amazing the difference No-Fenol has made. He is much calmer and better able to focus.


    Pros

      effective no side effects one capsule is usually enough I can open the capsule and sprinkle it in my sons food

    Cons
