What is Beano?
Beano is an all-natural solution for a completely natural problem. Many people experience gas and discomfort after eating vegetables, grains, beans and other wholesome or high-fiber foods. Even cereals, breads, nuts and seeds can be problematic.
No need to avoid your favorite healthy foods.
If you've begun to avoid your favorite healthy foods because of the embarrassment or discomfort they cause, Beano is your solution. Don't avoid nutritious foods that are essential ingredients in many delicious recipes. It's simply unnecessary. Just take Beano, and you won't have to give up eating the healthy things you love.
There's nothing special about gas.
Gas is a common problem, but not many people realize that digestive discomfort is due to a recently identified food intolerance called Complex Carbohydrate Intolerance (CCI). Complex carbohydrates are the sugars found in many healthy foods, such as beans and other legumes, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. CCI is caused by a deficiency of an intestinal enzyme called alpha-galactosidase, which results in the incomplete digestion of complex carbohydrates. Symptoms of CCI can include flatulence, digestive discomfort, bloating and cramping.
Beano is an over-the-counter natural gas prevention product that contains this natural enzyme. It is not a drug, but instead works with the body's digestive system to break down the complex sugars in gas-causing foods, making them more digestible and ultimately helping to prevent CCI symptoms, including gas and bloating, before they start.
When you take Beano just before a meal, you can avoid gas and digestive problems altogether. Beano is available in a tablet and liquid drops, so it's handy to use even when you're away from home and on the go – at work, dining out or visiting friends.
To get the best results from Beano, follow these simple guidelines.
- Use Beano with the right food. Be prepared – take Beano with you when you go out. You never know when you might need it. Adding Beano to foods while they're cooking reduces its effectiveness and is not recommended.
- Use Beano at the right time. If a meal includes problem foods, don't take chances. Plan to take Beano with your first bite. If you take it later in your meal, it may not have enough time to work properly.
- Use the right amount of Beano. Size up the amount of problem food(s) on your plate. Take Beano right at the start of your meal. Take one Beano tablet for every helping of vegetables and take one tablet for every helping of whole grains. It usually adds up to about 2-3 pills at the start of a meal.
- Use Beano for the right problem. Beano helps prevent stomach gas caused by problem foods. The most common symptoms include flatuence, abdominal bloating and digestive discomfort. Only Beano contains a natural enzyme that works with your body's digestion. It breaks down complex carbohrdrates into simple sugars, which your body can easily digest, preventing gas before it starts.
