Uses & Benefits
Helps reduce gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort after eating vegetables, beans, and whole grains
Natural Factors Vegetarian MacroGest Plant Enzyme Formula is an intensive-strength formula specially designed to support the breakdown of hard-to-digest foods such as beans, whole grains, and vegetables, helping to reduce gas and bloating. This full-spectrum formula is ideal for vegetarian, vegan, and raw food diets providing key enzymes to help break down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats for better nutrient absorption, and to reduce gas production caused by poor digestion of fermentable carbohydrates (FODMAPs) found in many plant foods.
Vegetarian MacroGest contains key digestive enzymes needed for complete digestion, including amylases, proteases, lipase, cellulase, lactase, hemicellulase, and proteolytic enzymes bromelain and papain, to support healthy digestion and a normal inflammatory response. This comprehensive formula also features enzymes that help support a healthy balance of intestinal microflora to keep pathogenic microorganisms in check.
By supporting complete digestion, Vegetarian MacroGest offers support for food sensitivities, and unpleasant digestive symptoms of lactose intolerance, FODMAP intolerance, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Vegetarian MacroGest from Natural Factors is non-GMO and offers intensive-strength support the digestion of gas-causing foods such as beans, vegetables, and whole grains.

Vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant).
Digestive enzymes to help digest proteins. Helps reduce gas production/flatulence following a meal rich in fermentable carbohydrates (such as vegetables, pulses/legumes/beans, and whole grains). Helps prevent gastrointestinal intolerance of oligosaccharides/fermentable carbohydrates.
