  • For individuals who need a more broad-spectrum digestive aid‚ Thorne Research offers Bio-Gest. Bio-Gest contains HCl‚ pepsin‚ pancreatin‚ and ox bile‚ which are important for those who need support for protein and carbohydrate digestion‚ and fat emulsification and absorption.

    Hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach does several positive things. It assists protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin‚ it renders the stomach sterile against ingested pathogens‚ it inhibits undesirable overgrowth in the small intestine‚ and it encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes. Hydrochloric acid also facilitates the absorption of a number of nutrients‚ including folate‚ vitamin B12‚ ascorbic acid‚ beta-carotene‚ iron‚ and some forms of calcium‚ magnesium‚ and zinc. Numerous studies have shown hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach declines with advancing age. Overuse of antacids can also lead to low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach‚ which can result in poor protein digestion. Thorne offers hydrochloric acid and pure pepsin from a porcine source. Unlike many supplement companies‚ the pepsin utilized in Thorne's product is pure‚ undiluted‚ and lactose-free.

    Pancreatin is a mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by cells in the pancreas. Pancreatin is composed of amylase‚ lipase‚ and protease. Pancreatin production and secretion by the pancreas is essential to digestion and absorption of numerous nutrients‚ especially fats.

    Situations such as illness‚ gall bladder removal‚ overuse of antacids‚ and normal aging can contribute to insufficient secretion of stomach acid‚ pancreatic enzymes‚ and bile‚ and can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity and lead to heartburn‚ gas‚ bloating‚ and other symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort.

    Maldigestion can lead to digestive problems and poor absorption of nutrients‚ resulting in vitamin deficiencies (particularly fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A‚ D‚ E‚ and K). Food allergies can develop when inadequately digested proteins are absorbed through the gut. As large proteins are absorbed intact‚ the body might recognize them as foreign and create antibodies to them‚ resulting in an allergic response to the food. An individual who has frequent indigestion should make sure to have adequate enzyme support.

    Works for me!

    I have silent reflux and didn't want to take drugs so my naturopathic doctor suggested I try Bio-Gest by Thorne Research. It breaks the food down when you take it after eating.


    Pros

      Helps get food moving through system.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    HCL Betaine/Pepsin

    I originally purchased Bio-Gest by Thorne Research 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.


    Pros

      Its 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.

    Cons

      Nothing!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Best of its kind

    Bio-Gest by Thorne Research 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 PureFormulas online and they have Bio-Gest and at the best price I've ever seen 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.


    Pros

      It works better than any other digestive enzyme

    Cons

      Not available in local stores

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Biogest Digestive Enzymes

    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.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
