Beano is a food enzyme dietary supplement tablet that helps to prevent gas before it starts. Beano helps to digest gas-causing foods, such as fresh vegetables, whole grain breads and beans. It does this by breaking down the complex carbohydrates, making them easier to digest.
There are three main types of problem foods that may cause gas and bloating. Three possible types of problem foods include grains, beans and vegetables. Beano can hekp provide relief for such problem foods as beets, broccoli, cabbage, onions, chickpeas, lima beans, granola, bagels and more.
Beano contains an enzyme from a natural source that works with your body's digestion to break down the complex carbohydrates found in gas-causing foods. These complex carbs are turned into simpler, more easily digestible sugars before they reach your colon, preventing gas before it starts.
It is important to time your Beano dose to help ensure you get the best relief possible. To prevent gas before it starts, take Beano before you eat, or as you are eating, your gas-causing food. Beano tablets can be swallowed whole or chewed before eating your meal.
You can use Beano when eating problem foods to help reduce gas. The recommended dose is two to three tablets for a typical meal. If you need them at every meal, you would be ingesting up to six to nine tablets each day.
