For those patients who may need the combination of ingredients found in Betaine HCl & Pepsin and Dipan-9, we offer Bio-Gest. Bio-Gest contains ox bile, which is important for those who have problems with fat emulsification and absorption – such as a patient whose gall bladder has been removed.
Because of their physiological role in the absorption of dietary lipids, bile salts are widely used for replacement therapy, in pathological conditions in which the concentration of bile acids in upper intestines is low, such as:
- biliary fistula
- disease of the ileum
- hepatic or extra-hepatic cholestasis
- to help lower cholesterol & triglycerides
- a general aid in fat metabolism
- gall bladder removal

I was having trouble bringing up my ferritin and my Vitamin D was dropping. My naturopath had me start on 1 per meal and work it up until I felt a little heartburn type feel and then drop back by 1. I didn't need much. I have 1 with breakfast and 2 each with lunch and dinner. I was on it for 1 month. I just had my levels tested and my both increased by much more than expected. Love it! I will be continuing to use this product to make sure I continue to absorb the food I am eating and supplements I am taking.
Best thing out there for me for digestionThese are the only capsules that seem to help with my digestion. I have to make sure I take them with any kind of protein intake and they work really well. They're very easy to take. I was extremely pleased with the price of these, having bought them elsewhere before, and the quick shipping.Was this review helpful to you?
