Carbohydrates are our main source of fuel for the body, both immediate and in the long term. They are necessary to sustain life, as other food nutrients (fat and protein) cannot be properly assimilated by the body without them. Carbohydrates provide a continuous source of energy between meals and even while we are sleeping. This energy supports our immune system, promotes the growth of bones and assists in skin rejuvenation.
Some medical experts recommend that 45-65% of our diet be made up of carboyhdrates of which the majority should come from complex carbohydrates (vegetables & beans) and only a few from simple (sugars). Unfortunately, many individuals experience digestive discomfort when consuming a diet rich in fibrous food. Grains, seeds, beans and vegetables contain high quantities of cellulose, and the human body does not produce cellulase, the enzyme needed to break down this dietary fiber.
Symptoms of bean and vegetable intolerance range from occasional gas and bloating to indigestion. When undigested plant fiber remains in the colon it is fermented by intestinal microflora. As a result, impaired digestion of gas forming foods may alter the body's production of probiotics, yeast or bacteria. Enzymes Address Food Intolerance
Complete elimination of fibrous foods is neither possible nor ideal. Complex carbohydrates are found in healthy foods such as vegetables; these are very rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients necessary for optimal health. Low intake of carbohydrates may decrease one's ability to function optimally throughout the day. Enzyme supplementation will enhance the digestion of beans, grains and raw vegetables, enabling the consumption of a healthful diet with fewer symptoms of intolerance.
Identify Bean & Veggie™ Contains a full spectrum of carbohydrate and fiber digesting enzymes to assist in the digestion of gas-forming foods.* Crucial to the formula is the enzyme alpha-galactosidase which digests the sugars from legumes (beans), grains and cruciferous vegetables. Additional enzymes are included to promote digestion and assimilation of starch, glycogen and related polysaccharides.
