Enzymedica, Inc., a manufacturer of indication-specific enzyme-based finished products has introduced CarbGest, an enzyme supplement formulated to support healthy phenol and carbohydrate digestion.
CarbGest provides phenol-targeting enzymes such as xylanase to enhance the digestion of phenolic compounds in fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and food additives.
Plant foods are rich in polyphenolic compounds called flavonoids and beta-carotenes. These phenols are antioxidant nutrients essential for health. By aiding the digestion of phenol containing foods, the enzymes in CarbGest may enhance the availability of these core antioxidants to the body.
Dave Barton, Enzymedica’s Director of Education shares, “Some individuals have sensitivity to phenols and experience difficulty digesting foods that contain them. Often, these individuals are reacting to the phenol and salicylate compounds found in food colorants and flavorings. However, phenols are relatively omnipresent in all plant foods so a phenol-targeting enzyme blend such as CarbGest can provide digestive support.”
CarbGest contains a blend of carbohydrase (amylase) enzymes to aid the break down and assimilation of carbohydrates in the diet. Ideal for vegetarians who favor carbohydrate rich meals with small amounts of protein, the formula is also safe for children.
Barton continues, “We recommend one capsule of CarbGest at the beginning of each meal, although the dosage may be adjusted for individuals with phenol sensitivities. You can also open the capsule and mix it with food if that is easier.”
CarbGest utilizes Enzymedica’s exclusive Thera-blend™ process for the enzymes protease, lipase, amylase, and cellulase. This process blends several different strains of each enzyme to achieve greater activity over a broader pH range. This process increases potency by enabling each enzyme to break down more bonds throughout the entire digestive system and makes them more effective systemically.
Enzymedica offers CarbGest in a 60 serving bottle size at a suggested retail price of $29.98. To learn more about Enzymedica’s CarbGest as well as purchase locations, visit www.enzymedica.com.
