Thorne Research Bio-Gest helps digest fats, proteins, and carbs by supplementing HCl, pepsin, pancreatin, and ox bile, which can be depleted by many things, including age, antacid overuse, and gallbladder removal. Situations such as a long-term illness, gall bladder removal, overuse of antacids, and normal aging can contribute to the insufficient secretion of stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, and bile, any one of which can lead to various symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort. Maldigestion can result in the insufficient absorption of nutrients, causing vitamin deficiencies and food allergies. Bio-Gest offers broad-spectrum digestive support with hydrochloric acid, pepsin, pancreatin, and ox bile, each of which is important for those individuals who need more effective protein and carbohydrate digestion, and fat emulsification and absorption.
Recommended use: Take 1-2 capsules with each meal, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
