Info: 90 Veg. Capsules

One typically associates developing gas or bloating with heavy meals rich in animal fat (whether from meat, gravy, or dairy). But vegetarian dishes can pose challenges, too -- particularly if they have a lot of fermentable carbs, as many legumes (especially red kidney/chili beans!) and whole grains do. To address that, Douglas Labs' GI Digest includes one enzyme, alpha-galactosidase, specifically for hastening the digestion of those carbohydrates in order to reduce their gas production as they ferment, but it doesn't stop there. It's actually a far more comprehensive enzyme formula with all the digestive enzymes needed to properly digest dairy, fats, gluten, proteins, and other types of starch, as well, but they're all from non-animal sources, so it's suitable for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

Product Notes:

Formulated with multiple carbohydrases, lipases and proteases, G.I. Digest provides enzymatic activity across a broad pH range to ensure the enzymes are active throughout the stomach and small intestine.
