Suffering from gastrointestinal distress is no way to go through your day. Put back the enjoyment in mealtimes with the stomach-boosting effects of Trophic Digest-Aid. This blend of bile salts, mineral charcoal, and digestive enzymes can help break down and enhance absorption of nutrients in the body. 

Product Notes:

Proper digestion and absorption of foods (especially high fat foods) help prevent indigestion, nausea, and flatulence by promoting healthy gallbladder function with the help of bile salts and digestive enzymes (lipase, trypsin, and bromelain). In addition, Chamomile, Goldenseal, and Charcoal help relieve digestive tract irritations when taken with meals.

Bile Salts are critical to the absorption of fats and fat soluble nutrients (i.e. Vitamins A, D, E, and K), and also the conversion of essential fatty acids from foods and supplements (i.e. EPA/DHA/ ALA) into the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins that provide important benefits for heart, joint, eye, and brain health.

Bile Salts are especially important to those who have had their gall bladder removed. One to three capsules or tablets are recommended with any fat containing meal.

Trophic Digest-Aid helps the body soothe irritations of the gastrointestinal tract and aids in the proper absorption and utilization of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. It prevents indigestion, nausea and flatulence when taken with meals and is effective in promoting healthy gallbladder function. It contains bile extract and three digestive enzymes, lipase, trypsin and bromelain. The herbs chamomile and goldenseal and the mineral charcoal have been added to further aid the digestive process. In the formula, lipase splits fats into two compounds: glycerin and fatty acids. Trypsin and bromelain are powerful proteolytic enzymes that digest proteins more rapidly and completely than pepsin. Goldenseal is traditionally used to soothe the mucous membranes of the digestive tract and aids with difficult digestion and dyspepsia. The bile salts are probably formed throughout the body, but are concentrated in the liver and excreted throughout the bile duct into the duodenum. There, they play an essential role in the digestion of fat.
