VeggieGest 60 (Formerly Gastro)
Alpha-Galactosidase: Extra strength enzyme support for plant-based diets Current dietary recommendations from the USDA encourage Americans to increase our fruit, vegetable, and grain consumption. Some dieticians and nutritionists recommend that, 30% - 50% of our diet be made up of a combination of these essential ’complex (vegetables) and ’simple' (sugars) carbohydrates. Carbohydrates provide essential nutrients needed to support protein and fat metabolism, help fight infection, promote the growth of bones and assist in skin rejuvenation. It is very common to experience discomfort when digesting these types of foods. Symptoms range from occasional gas and bloating to indigestion and other imbalances.
When added to your meal as a supplement, Veggie Gest/Gastro can assist the body in breaking down and assimilating the gas forming starches found in these types of foods.
Gastro features the amylase enzyme Alpha-Galactosidase. This enzyme is essential to the digestion of sugars and starch found in legumes and other gas forming foods. Gastro also contains a full spectrum of amylase enzymes to address the variety of starches, glycogen and related polysaccharides found in grains, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables. To round out the formula protease and lipase are added for the proteins and fats found in food.
The formula is ideal for those who consume a high carbohydrate or vegetarian diet.
Amylase Deficiency - (Take Our Enzyme Deficiency Test)
Gastro can be taken between meals to support those individuals who suspect that they are amylase deficient. Common symptoms include allergies, fatigue, skin problems, sprue and upset stomach. Research has shown a connection between Amylase production and histamine. (please see "The Enzyme Deficiency Test" and Allerase.)
60 Ct. or 90 Ct.
Take 1 capsule at the beginning of each meal. More can be taken if needed.
Bean, Grain and Vegetable Digestion*
High potency amylase maximizes the digestion of legumes, fibrous vegetables and whole grains, and helps alleviate occasional gas and bloating.*
Gas forming foods such as legumes and whole grains are an important part of a healthy diet, but few individuals enjoy the discomfort and embarrassment of digestive distress that often follows such meals.
Gastro is formulated with high quality amylase digestive enzymes to aid in the proper digestion of carbohydrates, protein, fats, and dairy products. Gastro is ideal for vegetarians or anyone exhibiting amylase deficiency. (Take the Enzyme Deficiency Test)
The high amount of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase found in Gastro is imperative in digesting the sugars from legumes and other foods that create occasional gas and bloating.
