Enzymedica CarbGest (60 Capsules)
Polyphenolic Compounds: A Trigger Food
Some individuals have sensitivity to phenols, and experience difficulty digesting foods that contain them. While it may be possible to reduce one's consumption of the phenols and salicylate compounds found in food additives such as colorants and flavorings, phenols are relatively omnipresent in all plant based foods.
Since complete abstinence from phenolic compounds is not always possible or recommended, a phenol-targeting enzyme blend such as CarbGest can help to provide digestive support.
Support For Carbohydrate Rich Diets
Amylase, commonly referred to as carbohydrase, is needed to break down and assimilate the carbohydrates in our modern diet. Complex carbohydrates that are found in healthy foods such as vegetables are rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients beneficial for overall health.
These carbohydrates provide support to every cell within the body, including healthy protein and fat metabolism, immunity, skin rejuvenation, detoxification and bone growth.
In addition to the body producing carbohydrase enzymes, people obtain amylase through their diets, in certain foods and dietary supplements. Considering how frequently the body employs carbohydrases to maintain good health, it is not a surprise that many individuals suffer from an amylase deficiency.
People may experience symptoms of low energy, skin problems, and impaired digestion. For these individuals a carbohydrase enzyme blend may help maximize healthy carbohydrate digestion.
Take one capsule of CarbGest at the beginning of each meal. For phenol sensitivities, dosage can be adjusted to individual needs. The capsule may be opened and mixed with food if desired. Safe for children.
CarbGest: Phenol-Targeting Enzymes
CarbGest from Enzymedica provides phenol-targeting enzymes such as xylanase to enhance the digestion of phenolic compounds, like salicylates, due to some individuals having difficulty tolerating even small amounts, phenols are generally referenced in the context of antioxidants.
Plant foods are rich in specific polyphenols called flavonoids and beta-carotenes. They are antioxidant nutrients essential for overall health. By aiding the carbohydrate digestion of foods containing phenol, the enzymes in CarbGest may enhance the availability of these core antioxidants to the body.*
