In addition to providing digestive support, this supplement aids in nutrient absorption and clearing stagnant waste. The eight herbs present in Can-Gest, including mallow leaf, peppermint leaf and marigold flowers, have all been used traditionally for various roles revolving around the digestive system, and are pre-steeped to ensure optimum absorption. Can-Gest contains no dairy products, colorings, flavorings or preservatives and is non-GMO and gluten-free. Can-Gest can be bought either in bottles of 100 capsules or 4 oz. powder tubs that can be made into tea.
