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