This is a traditional blend of eight herbal extracts that nourish the digestive system and help maintain the eliminative system. It is a mild laxative that also provides nutritional support for the liver, stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen. Can-Gest is 100% free of harsh acidic substances or enzymes that can cause further irritation to a sensitive digestive system. This product has shown noticeable improvement in symptoms of heartburn, acid reflux, bloating, gas, constipation, and other digestive problems.
Many studies have shown that the usual American diet is rich in fat, sugar, calcium, and phosphates, and low in fish, vegetables and whole grains. This typical diet does not provide the necessary amount of essential nutrients (like magnesium and potassium) and can actually block many nutrients in your diet from being absorbed in the intestines. Can-Gest supports the natural functions of the digestive system, helps to clear stagnant waste, and is thought to aid in the absorption of essential nutrients.
The founder of our Alta Health, Richard Barmakian, N.D., studied in Paris, France with Dr. Louis Kervran. He traveled to Canada and studied under Alma R. Hutchins, a protÃ©gÃ© of Natalie and N.G. Tretchikoff, well-known Russian herbalists. He also studied with Dr. Paavo Airola Ph.D., and through these educational endeavors, N.D. Barmakian based his Can-Gest formula on a perfect combination of herbs that nourish the digestive system. We continue to provide Dr. Barmakian's original formula and ensure the quality of all ingredients used.
