Enzymedica’s Phenolgest/CarbGest provides phenol-targeting enzymes such as xylanase to enhance the digestion of phenolic compounds in fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and food additives. While some negative attention has been given to the phenolic compounds, like salicylates, due to some individuals having difficulty tolerating even small amounts, phenols are generally referenced in the context of antioxidants. Plant foods are rich in specific polyphenols called flavonoids and beta-carotenes. These are antioxidant nutrients essential for health. By aiding carbohydrate digestion of foods containing phenol, the enzymes in CarbGest may enhance the availability of these core antioxidants to the body.*

CarbGest
High potency digestive support for diets rich in carbohydrates and the phenolic compounds in fruits, vegetables, and food additives.* Ideal for those who have phenol sensitivities or vegetarians who favor carbohydrate rich meals with small amounts of protein.

Polyphenolic Compounds: A Trigger Food
Some individuals have intolerance to phenols, and experience difficulty digesting foods that contain them. While it may be possible to reduce one's consumption of the phenols and salicylate compounds found in food additives such as colorants and flavorings, phenols are relatively omnipresent in all plant based foods. Since complete abstinence from phenolic compounds is not always possible or recommended, a phenol-targeting enzyme blend such as CarbGest can provide digestive support.

Support for Carbohydrate Rich Diets
Amylase, or carbohydrase, is needed to break down and assimilate the carbohydrates in our modern diet. The complex carbohydrates found in healthy foods like vegetables and whole grains are rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients beneficial for overall health. These carbohydrates provide support to every cell of the body, including healthy protein and fat metabolism, immunity, skin rejuvenation, detoxification and bone growth.

In addition to the body’s production of carbohydrase enzymes, people obtain amylase through their diet, in certain raw foods and dietary supplements. Considering how frequently the body employs carbohydrases to maintain good health, it is not a surprise that some individuals suffer from an amylase deficiency.

People may experience symptoms of low energy, skin problems, and impaired digestion. For these individuals a carbohydrase enzyme blend may help maximize healthy carbohydrate digestion.
