Two out of three people experience bloating after meals and many of us experience “the dreaded wind” soon after we’ve eaten certain foods. The most common offending foods for creating wind are beans, lentils and pulses. Though for some people it’s cabbage, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower that cause their problems.

Beans, cabbage, broccoli and other fibre-rich foods provide a wealth of health benefits, so we don’t want to stop eating them. Yet the complex carbohydrates found in these foods can be difficult to digest. When foods remain undigested in the gut, the carbohydrates ferment, which can generate uncomfortable symptoms and lead to what we commonly call “smelly wind”!

The main reason for the difficulty in digesting these types of carbohydrates is that most of us don’t have enough of the naturally occurring enzyme alpha-galactosidase in our digestive system, and it is this enzyme that breaks down these foods to make them easily digestible.

Help is now at hand in the form of a natural supplement called BeanAssist™ (created by the Enzyme Expert company – Enzymedica™). BeanAssist is a vegetarian enzyme formula that contains alpha-galactosidase. The capsules are small and easy-to¬ swallow and contain no fillers or binders. This supplement is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

BeanAssist is available from your local independent health food store or at
