Enzymedica - PhenolGest - 60 Capsules (Formerly CarbGest)
Enzymedica PhenolGest from Enzymedica provides phenol-targeting enzymes such as xylanase to enhance the digestion of 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. They are antioxidant nutrients essential for overall health. By aiding the carbohydrate digestion of foods containing phenol, the enzymes in PhenolGest may enhance the availability of these core antioxidants to the body.
Polyphenolic Compounds: A Trigger Food
Some individuals have sensitivity 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 help to provide digestive support.
Support For Carbohydrate Rich Diets
Amylase, commonly referred to as carbohydrase, is needed to break down and assimilate the carbohydrates in our modern diet. Complex carbohydrates that are found in healthy foods such as vegetables are rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients beneficial for overall health.
These carbohydrates provide support to every cell within the body, including healthy protein and fat metabolism, immunity, skin rejuvenation, detoxification and bone growth.
In addition to the body producing carbohydrase enzymes, people obtain amylase through their diets, in certain foods and dietary supplements. Considering how frequently the body employs carbohydrases to maintain good health, it is not a surprise that many 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.

In the spring of 1998, Enzymedica was born. The role of Enzymedica is to offer the public the most effective enzyme products available. They utilize the expertise of doctors, researchers and clinicians in formulating each of their products. They are proud of what they have to offer the public, namely therapeutic enzyme supplements that have been health professional proven.
Enzymedica's entire focus and purpose is enzymes. They are the experts. Unlike most of their competitors, Enzymedica does not make vitamin supplements or herbal cleanses. All they manufacture are the highest quality, highest potency enzyme products available.
Enzymedica products are Health Professional proven. Enzymedica products contain the highest therapeutic activities available. No other company uses higher active units in a multiple enzyme line. In addition to a digestive enzyme that is on average three times stronger than their competitors, Enzymedica has a therapeutic digestive enzyme blend, a carbohydrate digestion and allergy assistance blend, a blood purifier, and a fat digestion and cardiovascular product.
Enzymedica is proud to be GMP Registered through NSF International. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that it is represented to possess.
NSF International helps protect you by certifying products and writing standards for food, water and consumer goods. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, NSF's ongoing public health commitment is to encourage everyone to live safer. The NSF GMP Registration for contract manufacturers and internal manufacturing facilities of dietary supplement companies enables contract manufacturers to become independently registered by NSF as complying with GMP requirements as listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2006. NSF's Dietary Supplement Standard is updated to keep pace with FDA GMP regulations.
Enzymedica uses an exclusive Thera-blend process for its protease, lipase, amylase and cellulase. This means that each of these enzymes actually represents multiple strains. For example, there are actually four proteases in the Thera-blend protease. They are blended for their ability to break down numerous bonds of protein in varying pH levels. Enzymedica does this at a considerable expense. From a label description Enzymedica also sacrifices active units to provide the best blend possible. A single protease, for example, could produce more active units per milligram than a multiple protease. However, the active pH would be narrow and the number of protein bonds it could break would be limited.
Enzymedica products are 100% vegan and vegetarian. Enzymedica uses no fillers in any of its enzyme formulations.
You will no doubt notice how small the capsules are in comparison to similar products. This is a result of using concentrates with no fillers.
Enzymedica continues to research the therapeutic effectiveness of plant based enzymes through doctors and clinicians. Currently, the company is coordinating and funding research that is ongoing. Enzymedica has every batch third party tested. This ensures they always meet label claim.
