prevents gas, bloating and discomforts caused by many healthful foods such as beans, brocoli, cabbage, onions, peppers, seeds, soy products, whole grains, cereals, and more.
Beano contains a natural food enzyme that breaks down the complex sugars found in many foods, making them easier to digest so they don't cause gas.
Unlike other gas medicines, Beano is a natural food enzyme dietary supplement that can help prevent gas before it starts. Available in a convenient tablet or liquid, Beano helps you digest the complex carbohydrates in many of your favorite healthy foods - not just beans. With Beano, you can comfortably enjoy nutritious foods that are an essential part of a healthy diet.
What causes gas?
The body does not digest and absorb some carbohydrates in the small intestine because of a shortage or absence of certain enzymes. This undigested food then passes from the small intestine to the large intestine where bacteria break down the food, producing gas. The most common symptoms of gas are flatulence, abdominal bloating and digestive discomfort. In essence, the body lacks the enzymes needed to breakdown the carbohydrates found in some gassy foods like vegetables, beans, grains, cereals, nuts, seeds and whole-grain breads. This is where Beano steps in. Beano contains a food enzyme from a natural source that works with your body's digestion to breakdown the complex sugars in gassy foods making them more digestible, preventing gas before it even starts.
Beano will not breakdown the fiber in any food. It works on gassy sugars/carbohydrates.
Ingredients: Alpha-galactosidase enzyme (derived from Aspergillus niger) 300 GalU
