When regular enzymes just don’t seem to work for you, or you want to try something different – that’s why Avena has our exclusive Gastric Enzymes. Designed specifically for those though stomach conditions that need healing and care just as much as digestive support. This fantastic product is loaded with herbal support to target the stomach itself.

This product is ideal for individuals who have issues with their stomachs such as ulcers, gastritis or other abdominal distress. The herbs included in the Gastric Enzymes such as aloe vera, slippery elm, anise and papaya (which naturally contains bromelain an active enzyme in food form).

It doesn’t stop there, the Gastric Enzymes has significant enzymes added to give you comfortable digestion featuring: a double dose of  amylase (glucoamylase & alpha-amylase) as well as and sucrase to break down carbohydrates, diastase, invertase and phytase for those starchy foods, followed closely by lactase and lipase a duo that breaks down fats, and those from dairy, all of these enzymes are rounded out by cellulase the enzyme that breaks down the fibre that’s only found in foods and so essential for complete digestion. The one missing protease, an enzyme that could cause discomfort for some. Bottom line the Gastric Enzymes are a whole enzyme blend that is suitable for many, if not all. When in doubt this is a perfect product to try soothing herbs mixed with a great digestive combination it’s a win-win!

SYMPTOMS of Gastritis: upper abdominal pain or upset, burning feeling in the stomach, stomach cramping, nausea, abdominal bloating, chest pain, rapid heartbeat, belching, nausea, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, feeling of fullness, burning sensation in the upper abdomen, bad taste in the mouth, loss of appetite, blood in vomit or black stools (a sign of bleeding in the stomach).

SYMPTOMS of a Peptic Ulcer: persistent and severe burning pain in the abdomen, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, heartburn (acid reflux or GERD), loss of weight, *tiredness, *weakness, *blood in vomit or stool (*all signs of a bleeding ulcer).

One of the significant known medical causes of developing a peptic ulcer is a specific type of bacteria called Helicobacter Pylori (H. Pylori) that lives in the lining of the stomach and duodenum. Your best long-term approach would be to address the cause. Our Proteolytic Probiotic a, a proprietary probiotic blend with distinct proteolytic characteristics, would be a great addition to your natural healing protocol. Above all, with a unique blend of herbs explicitly designed for gastrointestinal healing, our Gastric Enzyme Blend is a superb addition once or twice yearly to any health-building regime.
