Nutrigest is a potent combination of hydrochloric acid (HCl), broad spectrum digestive enzymes and key amino acids to help support digestion in the stomach and small intestine.
Nutrigest has been reformulated and is now suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It is now in capsule form. We have swapped out the pancreatic enzymes for enzymes derived from aspergillus. Ox bile and pepsin have been removed, and glycine and taurine added, for supporting the conjugation of bile acids.
Why choose Nutrigest Digestion Capsules?
It’s not just what we eat, but how well we can digest and actually absorb it that counts! If stomach acid levels fall too low this can result in difficulties digesting protein and may also result in low levels of digestive enzymes and bile being secreted during the digestive process. A supplement containing HCl and enzymes may be a very helpful way to support digestion.
Who is it suitable for?
As we age our bodies may produce less HCl. This can also occur in either acute or chronic illness. Nutrigest is suitable for those who may have compromised digestive function, who may benefit from a broad-spectrum digestive support supplement to facilitate more optimum digestion and assimilation. Nutrigest is not suitable for individuals with gastritis or ulcers. Nutrigest is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
