Support for Vegetarian, Vegan and Raw Diets*
Occasional gas and bloating often result from fermentation of food, like plant fiber, in the colon.
VeggieGest™ contains a high-potency enzyme, Alpha Galactosidase, that is key in digesting the sugars from beans, grains, raw vegetables and other foods that create digestive discomfort.*
The highly targeted, specialized enzyme blend uses Enzymedica exclusive Thera-blend™ formulation, and assists the body in breaking down and assimilating these foods, which takes stress off the gallbladder, liver and pancreas.*

Carbohydrates are our main source of fuel that each of our cells need to function properly. Foods that are rich in complex carbohydrates are also rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients necessary for optimal health. But, because these healthy foods, vegetables, grains, seeds and beans, contain complex carbohydrates, they are often difficult to digest and may end up being fermented in the colon, resulting in uncomfortable gas and bloating.
Supplementing with enzymes that break down and assimilate carbohydrates may reduce these occasional discomforts.* VeggieGest contains seven different types of enzymes that break down difficult-to digest carbohydrates such as fiber and related polysaccharides.*
Specifically, the enzyme alpha galactosidase
is key in digesting the lectin-sugars from beans, grains, raw vegetables and other foods that create digestive discomfort.*
VeggieGest contains Thera-blend enzymes, an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work in various pH levels. Thera-blend enzymes have been shown to be three times stronger and work more than six times faster than leading digestive supplements.*
