    Illness, gall bladder removal, overuse of antacids, and normal aging can contribute to insufficient secretion of stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, and bile, and can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity, leading to heartburn, gas, bloating, and other symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort. For individuals who need a broad-spectrum digestive aid, Thorne Research offers Bio-Gest, which contains HCl, pepsin, pancreatin, and ox bile, which are important for those who need support for protein and carbohydrate digestion, and fat emulsification and absorption.
