Great Digestive Support For Occasional Dyspepsia
Bio-Gest is well-formulated to help with occasional digestive upsets. It is a solid product made from HCl, pepsin, pancreatin and ox bile to help digest fats, carbs and proteins. Ox bile is added to help emulsify the fats for better digestion. Thorne's products are free from any allergens and always use the highest quality ingredients.

compounded my digestive issues
Probably one of the worst digestive enzymes on the market. I would recommend DGX by Theramedix and digestive enzymes by Dr Mercola, which also contain ox bile
