Carb Digest™ with Isogest® is specially formulated for individuals who find it difficult to digest carbohydrates. It is a revolutionary product that contains only disaccharidases and Kirkman’s proprietary Isogest® enzyme.
Kirkman® developed Isogest® based on the work of R. Kushak, Ph.D. and T. Buie, M.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital. They studied individuals with special requirements and sensitivities and found that in their test group, 25-45% of their subjects had weak isomaltase/palatinase activity.
Our Isogest® formulation has the ability to split isomaltase into two molecules of glucose, and to split palatinose into one molecule of glucose and one molecule of fructose. The result of the inclusion of this new enzyme is better, more complete carbohydrate digestion. Currently, no other enzyme product can offer this added activity.
Carb Digest™ with Isogest® may also be very useful to those on the SCD diet, because slight infractions of this diet may be counteracted.
Physicians and parents who evaluated products containing Kirkman’s Isogest® reported the following:
