Bio-Gest® was designed by Thorne Research for individuals who need needing more than HCl (hydrochloric acid) to aid with digestion.

Bio-Gest includes a blend of HCI‚ pepsin‚ ox bile and pancreatin to help the body digest proteins‚ carbohydrates and fats‚ which can benefit people who suffer from occasional indigestion. The ox bile was specifically added to emulsify fats. Similar to other Thorne Research products‚ Bio-Gest was made to the standards of a superior-quality product. As such‚ it does not include lactose‚ magnesium stearate‚ diluents‚ lubricants or preservatives.

Who Should Take Bio-Gest?

Thorne Research created Bio-Gest for people who need a truly broad-spectrum digestive aid. This product contains HCI‚ pancreatin‚ ox bile and pepsin‚ which are extremely beneficial to those who need additional support in order to digest proteins and carbohydrates. These ingredients also help the body emulsify and absorb fats.

How Does Hydrochloric Acid Aid in Digestion?

When hydrochloric acid is secreted in the stomach‚ it has various positive effects. For one‚ it helps the body digest protein by activating pepsinogen to pepsin. It also helps to protect the stomach from ingested pathogens by rendering the stomach sterile. Hydrochloric acid also inhibits the overgrowth of undesirable bacteria in the small intestine and it helps to encourage the flow of pancreatic enzymes and bile. In addition to all this‚ hydrochloric acid facilitates the body’s ability to absorb various nutrients including ascorbic acid‚ vitamin B12‚ beta-carotene‚ iron‚ folate and certain forms of magnesium‚ zinc and calcium. In many studies‚ hydrochloric acid secretion has been shown to naturally decline with age.

Using antacids in excess throughout your life can also result in lower than optimal levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

What is Pancreatin?

Pancreatin is actually a combination of various digestive enzymes that are naturally produced by cells within the pancreas. Among those digestive enzymes are lipase‚ amylase and protease. Pancreatin that is produced and secreted by the pancreas is necessary for the digestion and absorption of many nutrients and essential fats.

Who Can Benefit from Bio-Gest?

Anyone who has digestion problems‚ and especially those who take antacids on a regular basis‚ can benefit from Bio-Gest. There are certain situations (like when your gall bladder has been removed‚ you’ve overused antacids or you’re experiencing an illness) that can contribute to insufficient stomach acid‚ pancreatic enzymes and bile secretion and can have a negative effect on digestive enzyme activity‚ which will lead to heartburn‚ bloating‚ gas among other symptoms that result in gastrointestinal discomfort.

The inability to properly digest your food can lead to poor nutrient absorption‚ which may result in vitamin deficiencies. This is especially so with the fat-soluble vitamins‚ A‚ D‚ E and K.  Food allergies can present themselves as food allergies. Food allergies can occur when improperly digested proteins are absorbed through the intestines. When these large proteins are absorbed‚ the body may start recognizing them as foreign objects. If this occurs‚ the body will create antibodies to these foods‚ which results in the classic symptoms of a food allergy.

The Thorne Research Difference

Bio-Gest by Thorne Research offers hydrochloric acid and pure pepsin from a porcine source; but it does not contain any preservatives or other undesirable additives. Bio-Gest is a pure and natural product that is lactose free and undiluted.

Helps me digest carbs
December 28, 2013
My natural health practitioner recommended Bio-gest for help with bloating and constipation. It seems to be a quality supplement that helps me feel more comfortable after eating carbohydrates (breads, pastas, etc...). I don't take it everyday, more when I have a heavier meal and know I'll need some extra help with digestion. I notice less bloating and more ease of digestion when I take it near the end of a meal.

Biogest Digestive Enzymes
January 17, 2013
We were tested for Bio-Gest by two different practitioners who use Mora Machines. Bio-Gest by far went past the other enzymes that I took with us for personal testing. One said that the dipan in this formula is very helpful overall. Now enzymes are a personal need. We like these, they work for my daughter and I.... she is 32 and disabled with many digestive issues from her syndrome, I am 60 and sensitive to gluten, seafood, dairy, and on.

Best of its kind
May 14, 2011
This is the best digestive enzyme that I've ever used, and I have tried several. My doctor used to get it in but there were problems with his source so he switched to a different one. It was okay but many of my digestive problems recurred. Then I discovered Pure Formulas online, and they have Bio-Gest, and at the best price I've ever seen it, so now I can get it and get it reasonably priced. My digestive problems went away altogether after I started using Bio-Gest again. Very highly recommended.
It works better than any other digestive enzyme

HCL Betaine/Pepsin
March 16, 2011
I originally purchased the above product about a month ago from another source then found PureFormulas and ordered two bottles. A practitioner of Health and GI Tract/Immune System challenges told me I really needed a good HCL Betaine/Pepsin supplement, but everything I looked at had Magnesium Stearate in it! I totally refuse to purchase anything with that in it. Thorne delivers pure and excellent products and PureFormulas sells them and at an excellent price. Also, this company was great to deal with, courteous, prompt and phoned me to let me know the back order status. I liked that. Thank you PureFormulas and yes, I am looking to continue doing business with you. hildylyn
It's pure, no binders or fillers. i.e. you get the full product in the capsule and not a lot of not-good-for-you other items.

Finally - relief from digestive problems!!! I love this product!
December 27, 2010
For 30 years, I lived with constant burping or hiccups and I often had painful trapped gas and "burping attacks." Antacids only seemed to make it worse. Doctors ran various tests and couldn't find anything wrong. My chiropractor/kinesiologist put me on Bio-Gest 8 months ago. Since then, I no longer have any digestive problems!! It feels great! I take one after each meal. I highly recommend anyone with digestive issues to try this product.
