Digestion GB is a digestive enzyme formula created to promotes healthy digestive function. Digestion GB specifically supports fat, carbohydrate and protein digestion as well as gall bladder function.*
What Is It?
Digestion GB contains a unique mix of digestive enzymes, bile salts, taurine and herbal extracts to promote healthy gallbladder function and fat utilization, in addition to general digestive function.*
Uses For Digestion GB
Liver and Gallbladder Support: The metabolism of fats involves emulsification and digestion in a complex process that requires healthy liver, gallbladder and pancreas function. Milk thistle, curcumin and taurine promote liver and gallbladder health and stimulate production and secretion of bile acids.*
Promote Digestion: Bile acids, also provided in the form of ox bile extract, support the emulsification of fats necessary for digestion. The digestive enzymes included in this formula are active in a broad pH range to support fat, carbohydrate and protein digestion to complement pancreatic enzyme activity. This formula has enhanced lipase for extra fat digestion support.*
What Is The Source?
Lipase, protease and amylase are derived from microbial fermentation. Ox bile extract is bovine derived and standardized to contain 45–65% total cholic acids. Taurine is synthetic. Milk thistle extract is derived from Silybum marianum fruit and standardized to contain 80% silymarin. Turmeric extract is derived from Curcuma longa root and standardized to contain 95% curcuminoids. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Hypoallergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?

Milk thistle should be avoided by individuals with allergies to members of the aster (Compositea/Asteraceae) family, daisies, artichoke, kiwi or thistle. Curcumin should be used with caution in individuals with bile duct obstruction. If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product.
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Some studies have reported that milk thistle and curcumin can affect the way that the liver breaks down medications metabolized by the cytochrome p450 system, altering the effects of these medications and possibly the doses needed for treatment. Curcumin may be contraindicated with blood thinning medications. Consult your physician for more information.
