Bio-Gest contains the broadest spectrum of digestive factors available on the market. It combines HCL, pepsin, pancreatin, and bile to provide the majority of digestive products normally produced by the body when digesting food. This simulates the stomach, gall bladder, and pancreas. It does not contain lactose, which is commonly found in pancreatic enzyme products. Directions: take 1-2 capsules with each meal.
