For Occasional Gas, Bloating and Discomfort*
Occasional gas and bloating are often the results of poor digestion. The complex carbohydrates in foods such as beans, cabbage, and broccoli are complicated for the body to break down. When not broken down, these foods begin to ferment, producing gas.
BeanAssist TM provides support for the digestion of beans, cabbage, broccoli and other gas-inducing foods*
Helps Prevent gas before it starts in a small, fast-acting capsule*
Contains the Enzyme Alpha Galactosidase, which breaks down complex carbohydrates into sugars that are naturally easier to digest.*
Contains NO eggs, dairy, preservatives, salt, sucrose, soy, wheat, yeast, nuts, corn, gluten, casein, potato, rice artificial colors or flavors.
Usage & Notes
Recommended Use: 1 capsule with each meal containing a problem food. More may be taken as needed.
NO FILLERS ADDED
Although they bring a wealth of healthful benefits, the complex carbohydrates found in beans, cabbage, broccoli and other fiber-rich foods are difficult for the body to digest. The fiber in grains, seeds, legumes, fruits, and vegetables contains a variety of resistant starches and related polysaccharides.
These high-fiber foods are known to be gas inducing because the body does not produce the enzymes necessary to break these foods down into easily digestible carbohydrates.
When foods remain undigested, the carbohydrates ferment, which generates occasionally uncomfortable symptoms. Proper digestion may reduce discomfort and prevent occasional gas and bloating.*
BeanAssist™is a vegetarian enzyme formula that contains alpha-galactosidase. The alpha-galactosidase enzyme is specifically for digesting carbohydrates found in legumes, grains, and vegetables known to cause occasional symptoms of gas and bloating.* Research studies have proven alpha-galactosidase to be useful for reducing occasional gas-related symptoms.*1, 2
BeanAssist capsules are small and easy-to-swallow, which may help those who have difficulty swallowing and are quickly consumed by children.
BeanAssist is Kosher and contains no fillers or binders, unlike many tableted products available on the market.
