Bio-Gest®
Product Information
For individuals who need a more broad-spectrum digestive aid, Thorne Research offers Bio-Gest. Bio-Gest 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.*

Hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach does several positive things. It assists protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, it renders the stomach sterile against ingested pathogens, it inhibits undesirable overgrowth in the small intestine, and it encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes.* Hydrochloric acid also facilitates the absorption of a number of nutrients, including folate, vitamin B12, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, iron, and some forms of calcium, magnesium, and zinc.* Numerous studies have shown hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach declines with advancing age. Overuse of antacids can also lead to low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which can result in poor protein digestion.* Thorne offers hydrochloric acid and pure pepsin from a porcine source. Unlike many supplement companies, the pepsin utilized in Thorne's product is pure, undiluted, and lactose-free.

Pancreatin is a mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by cells in the pancreas. Pancreatin is composed of amylase, lipase, and protease. Pancreatin production and secretion by the pancreas is essential to digestion and absorption of numerous nutrients, especially fats.*

Situations such as 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 and lead to heartburn, gas, bloating, and other symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort.*

Maldigestion can lead to digestive problems and poor absorption of nutrients, resulting in vitamin deficiencies (particularly fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K). Food allergies can develop when inadequately digested proteins are absorbed through the gut. As large proteins are absorbed intact, the body might recognize them as foreign and create antibodies to them, resulting in an allergic response to the food. An individual who has frequent indigestion should make sure to have adequate enzyme support.*

FloraMend Prime Probiotic™
Product Information
What is FloraMend Prime Probiotic™?
FloraMend Prime Probiotic is a blend of natural, stable, human-strain probiotics to help replenish intestinal flora and promote overall digestive and immune health.*
What Makes FloraMend Prime Probiotic Unique?
FloraMend Prime Probiotic is a dairy- and allergen-free proprietary blend of three essential strains of vital probiotics: Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium longum. These strains are stabilized in a convenient, one-per-day dosage. Because of the unique culturing methods and proprietary combination of these strains, FloraMend Prime Probiotic is stable at room temperature and does not need refrigeration. Floramend is provided in an acid-resistant capsule for effective delivery to the gut.
How Does FloraMend Prime Probiotic Work?
To be effective, a probiotic supplement must (1) be viable at room temperature, (2) be able to withstand stomach acid, (3) be distributed throughout the intestinal tract, and (4) have the ability to adhere to the intestinal tract and reproduce. FloraMend Prime Probiotic shares these necessary characteristics and, taken daily, helps balance a healthy intestinal flora to promote a healthy intestinal environment for normal digestion and immune response.*

One Capsule Contains:
Proprietary Blend 5 Billion Live Cells*
Lactobacillus gasseri, 2.5 Billion Live Cells

Planti-Oxidants®
Product Information
Free radical damage has been implicated in a number of adverse health conditions. Free radicals can attack, infiltrate, and injure vital cell structures, leading to a destructive chain reaction called lipid peroxidation. This series of reactions causes damage to the lipid layer of cell membranes and can even cause DNA breakage. Free radicals are produced as a result of normal biochemical processes, certain diseases, and environmental or dietary stress. An imbalance of pro-oxidant versus antioxidant processes (i.e., oxidative stress), which occurs more readily as we age, can cause cellular damage and contribute to a number of conditions that are detrimental to health and well being.

Flavonoid molecules found in pigmented fruits and vegetables are responsible for providing color to the plant. In addition, these plant-based flavonoids have been found in numerous studies to exhibit antioxidant activity. When these common plants are eaten, the antioxidant activity of their flavonoids is passed on to us. Unfortunately, most individuals generally do not eat enough fruits and vegetables to gain the full benefit of their flavonoid content.

Planti-Oxidants is a combination of several of the best-researched flavonoid compounds, including silybin from milk thistle (Silybum marianum) as Siliphos, polyphenolic catechins from green tea as Greenselect Phytosome, oligomeric proanthocyanidins from grape seed extract as Leucoselect Phytosome, anthocyanidins from bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus), and Thorne Research's water-soluble quercetin.** These powerful plant antioxidants enhance the activity of nutrient-based antioxidants.*

Ingredients
One Capsule Contains:
Green Tea Phytosome* (Camellia sinensis extract (leaf) / Phosphatidylcholine complex) 50 mg.
Quercetin (water-soluble) 50 mg.
Silybin Phytosome* (Silymarin marianum extract (seed) / Phosphatidylcholine complex) 50 mg.
Bilberry extract (fruit) (Vaccinium myrtillus) 20 mg.
Grape Seed Phytosome* (Vitis vinifera extract / Phosphatidylcholine complex) 20 mg.
