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. † VeggieGest may assist 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. †

Ingredient Highlights for VeggieGest

  • Amylase Thera-blend - Breaks down starches (carbs) into smaller sugars, good for gluten or phenol intolerance
  • Alpha Galactosidase - Breaks down the carbs in raw vegetables and legumes (beans, peas, and lentils), good for bean or vegetable intolerance
  • Glucoamylase - works with amylase to break down carbohydrates into glucose units
  • Cellulase Thera-blend - Breaks down cellulose to help free nutrients in fruits and vegetables, good for bean or vegetable intolerance
  • Protease Thera-blend - Breaks down protein, good for gluten or dairy intolerance
  • Maltase - Breaks down carbohydrates, malt, and grain sugars. Good for disaccharide intolerance.
  • Lactase - Breaks down the milk sugar, lactose
  • Invertase - Breaks down sucrose into simple sugars (glucose and fructose). Good for sugar and dairy intolerance
  • Lipase Thera-blend- Breaks down fats from animals, dairy, and vegetables.
  • Pectinase (w/Phytase) - Breaks down pectin found in fruit. Good for fruit intolerance
  • Hemicellulase - Helps break down hemicellulose (carbohydrates into glucose), good for vegetable intolerance
  • Xylanase - Breaks down soluble fiber, good for vegetable or phenol intolerance

Why We Need Digestive Enzymes

  • Enzymes are destroyed in cooking and processing foods
  • Natural enzymes in our bodies begin to decrease in the late 20s
  • Stress, medications, eating on the run, not fully chewing food can all affect our ability to digest properly
  • Some lack enzymes due to genetics, ethnicity, lifestyle, or trauma which leads to food intolerance
  • To support overall digestive health regardless of natural enzyme levels

Occasional gas and bloating are often the result of poor digestion. Although they bring a wealth of healthful benefits, the complex carbohydrates found in beans, certain vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and other fiber-rich foods such as seeds, contain a variety of resistant starches and related polysaccharides that are difficult for the body to break down.

If the body does not produce the enzymes necessary to break these foods down into easily digestible carbohydrates, fats, proteins, or other nutrients, the whole body can suffer. When not broken down, these foods begin to ferment, producing gas and bloating.† In addition, other symptoms - that may not seem related to what you eat - may surface such as headaches, fatigue, difficulty focusing or sleeping, unexplained rashes, and more.†


Digestive Enzymes and Food Intolerance

In an ideal world, we would eat enough raw, unprocessed food to supply ample enzymes in addition to those that naturally occur in our bodies. Digestive Enzymes are required to break down all types of foods into small enough particles that our bodies can use. The reality is, our bodies only produce so many enzymes, which also need time to replenish in between meals.

When enzyme production is reduced, or other factors prevent the ability to produce sufficient enzymes, our bodies suffer. Not only can temporary discomfort such as gas, indigestion, or bloating occur, but the lack of enzymes prevents our bodies from absorbing the necessary nutrients for overall health and wellness.

If enzyme deficiency isn’t offset with the help of digestive enzyme supplements, a variety of food intolerance symptoms can occur.

Food intolerance is simply the inability to fully digest, or break down, certain types of foods due to not having enough of a certain type of enzyme. Otherwise known as a “digestive enzyme deficiency”, it means the body doesn’t have the normal levels of enzymes for digesting certain types of foods.

However, occasional intolerance may be due to the normal reduction of enzymes that occurs with age, or other factors that temporarily affect digestion. Symptoms may vary from minor stomach upset after a meal containing the offensive foods, or ongoing symptoms due to the inability to pinpoint which foods are causing the problem.


Thera-Blend for Enzyme Strength and pH Range

"By combining multiple strains of enzymes that have a different optimal pH range, blends achieve greater activity over a broader pH range. Lab tests show Enzymedica Thera-blend enzymes are 3x strong and work 6x faster than leading digestive supplements." - Enzymedica Thera-Blend Page

Whole GI TractThera-blend enzymes break down multiple bonds of various food types, targeting the whole GI tract and resulting in better digestion and absorption.

pH levels are different in each step of digestion. For enzymes to pass through or work in each area, they must be able to withstand these variations to be effective in the next stage. From stomach to pancreas to small intestine pH levels vary from 1.0 to 8.0, and each requires different types of enzymes for proper food break-down and nutrient absorption.

Thera-blend™ is 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. †
