Nutrigest Digestion Capsules | 90 Caps

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.

Key Features:
HCl aims to support healthy stomach acid levels

An acidic environment in the stomach is crucial for the breakdown (denaturing) of proteins

Adequate levels of HCl are also needed to stimulate the pancreas to secrete digestive enzymes

This occurs once the partially digested food mixture is released from the stomach into the small intestine

A low pH (acidic) is also vital for supporting immune function, as potentially harmful microbes cannot live in an acidic environment

Provides a mixture of enzymes including amylase, protease and lipase that help further break down food in the small intestine

Papain and bromelain are plant enzymes that both contain protease, which supports the breakdown of protein

Amylase supports the breakdown of carbohydrates

Lipase supports the breakdown of fats

Contains the amino acids glycine and taurine which are biologically conjugated (joined) to bile acids in the liver, aiding lipid metabolism and absorption.

Hydrochloric acid (HCl) denatures dietary proteins and facilitates the digestive action of enzymes. HCl also stimulates the pancreas to secrete more digestive enzymes when released into the duodenum from the stomach.

Protease supports the breakdown of protein, amylase supports the breakdown of carbohydrates and lipase supports the breakdown of fat.

Contains the amino acids glycine and taurine which are conjugated to bile acids in the liver, thereby aiding lipid metabolism and absorption.

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.
