Beta Plus is a digestive aid which may be of particular interest who have had their gall bladder removed, or who may need extra bile salts (from ox bile extract) to help digest fats or to fight certain species of bacteria in their digestive tracts.

Product Notes:

Like its companion product Beta-TCP, Biotics Research Beta Plus features a combination of pancreatic enzymes, organic beet concentrate, and two enzymes (catalase and superoxide dismutase, or SOD) produced from a vegetable culture to help the digestive system break down and absorb the nutrients from fats. (Some signs they may be needed include gas and bloating after eating fatty meals, or if your stools float or seem "greasy" or are light in colour or even clay-coloured rather than brown.)

Beta TCP vs Beta-Plus

These professional formulas differ in the following respects:

For those who do have a functioning gall bladder, Beta-TCP also provides Taurine and Vitamin C, which help create bile: the digestive fluid which acts like a detergent to help break fats down into their constituent parts (fatty acids, which our bodies can use), which gets produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder until it's needed.

But for those who have had their gall bladder removed who will need bile right away as they're eating a fatty meal and will not have any stored in advance, Beta Plus provides actual bile salts sourced from oxen to be able to get right to work as you eat the meal.

Another potential benefit or indication for the Beta Plus version is that ox bile isn't only good at breaking down fats: it can break down microbes, as well. That is, it also has significant antimicrobial effects, likely including some that are resistant to antibiotics, such as staphylococcus aureus.
