Many people do not make adequate hydrochloric acid or sufficient enzymes to digest their foods properly. Bio-Gest is a balanced digestive aid supplement with protein metabolizers (proteases), starch metabolizers (amylases), and fat metabolizers (lipases), as well as, hydrochloric acid in the form of betaine HCL and glutamic HCL which enhances enzyme function.
BIO-GEST TARGETS THE DIGESTION OF THE STOMACH AND UPPER GI
This is why it contains so much hydrochloric acid and large quantities of pepsin. It is particularly useful for people who have severe burping and an unsettled feeling in the stomach area right after eating.
BIO-GEST CAN ALSO BE UTILIZED FOR TRAUMA INJURIES, INFLAMMATIONS AND BRUISES
Under stress conditions, the enzymes necessary for digestion may be impaired, especially during times of hypoglycemia when the pancreas is involved in insulin control instead of secreting necessary enzymes for digestion.
Betaine HCl helps the body digest food by converting pepsinogen to pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down protein. It is especially helpful in cases where the stomach does not secrete sufficient hydrochloric acid due to age, stress, or other lifestyle factors.
Glutamic Acid HCl helps the body properly break down and assimilate minerals.
Pancreatin is a combination of the three different types of digestive enzymes: protease, which digests protein; lipase, which digests fats; and amylase, which digests carbohydrates.
Papain is a proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme that aids in digesting protein, and helps stimulate protein synthesis and repair.
Pepsin is the primary proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme secreted by the stomach. Its key function is to break down proteins into smaller substances which can be more readily absorbed.
As a dietary supplement, take one or two tablets after each meal or as directed by your health care professional. Do not exceed six tablets per day.
