Enzymedica Gastro (formerly V-Gest) is formulated with high quality amylase digestive enzymes to aid in the proper digestion of carbohydrates, protein, fats, and dairy products. Enzymedica Gastro is ideal for vegetarians or anyone exhibiting amylase deficiency. The high amount of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase found in V-Gest is imperative in digesting the sugars from legumes and other foods that create gas and bloating. Enzymedica Gastro reduces the gas and bloating often associated with the consumption of raw vegetables, grains and legumes.
Break Down Carbohydrates
Gastro is a great source for amylase which is needed to break down and assimilate carbohydrates which support every cell of the body. Some dieticians and nutritionists recommend that 30% - 50% of our diet be made up of a combination of these essential 'complex' (vegetables) and 'simple' (sugars) carbohydrates. These essential nutrients are needed to support protein and fat metabolism, help fight infection, promote the growth of bones and assist in skin rejuvenation.
Gastro contains four different types of enzymes that break down carbohydrates such as starch, glycogen and related polysaccharides. These are found in grains, seeds, legumes, vegetables and other plants. It is very common to experience discomfort when digesting these types of foods. Symptoms range from gas and bloating to indigestion and other imbalances. When added to your meal as a supplement, Gastro can assist the body in breaking down and assimilating these types of foods. Taking Gastro takes stress off the gallbladder, liver and pancreas. Moreover, Gastro has a very high amount of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase that is imperative in digesting the sugars from legumes and other foods that create gas and bloating. The formula is ideal for those who consume a high carbohydrate or vegetarian diet.
Gastro can be taken between meals to support those individuals who suspect that they are amylase deficient. Common symptoms include allergies, fatigue, skin problems, sprue and upset stomach. Amylase has antihistamine qualities that may assist those suffering from seasonal allergies (please see "The Enzyme Deficiency Test" and Allerase.)
