Enzymedica BeanAssist 30 Capsules
Vegan & Kosher Plant Based Enzymes
Beans and other fiber-rich foods bring a wealth of healthful benefits, however, the occasional discomforts of gas, bloating and indigestion often associated with these foods may cause many to shy away. Each capsule of BeanAssist offers the plant-based enzyme, alpha-galactosidase. This enzyme provides targeted digestive support for proper breakdown of gas-inducing foods in order to naturally reduce the occurrence of digestive discomfort.*
Enzymedica's BeanAssist comes in a convenient single capsule dose. These easy to swallow, kosher capsules contain no fillers or binders, unlike many tableted products available on the market.
The Musical Food
Complex carbohydrates (fiber-rich foods), are considered staples in most vegetarian and whole food diets. Dietary fiber offers a number of health benefits, which include supporting cardiovascular and digestive systems, promoting regularity and providing food for the healthy bacteria that reside in our gastrointestinal tract.
Fiber-rich foods are known to be gas-producing because the body does not produce the enzymes necessary to break these foods down into easily digestible carbohydrates. The fiber in grains, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables contains a variety of resistant starches, glycogen and related polysaccharides.
For this fiber, the body relies on food preparation, chewing, supplements and a healthy population of microflora in the gut to properly assimilate. When these foods remain undigested, the carbohydrates ferment, which generates gas and other uncomfortable symptoms.
The enzyme alpha-galactosidase is specific for digesting carbohydrates found in beans, grains and vegetables known to cause occasional symptoms of gas and bloating.* Research studies have demonstrated alpha-galactosidase to be effective for reducing discomforts associated with consumption of these foods.1 *
