Orlix® is a food supplement based on a natural enzyme - alpha-galactosidase which blocks stomach gas to occur. Alpha-galactosidase prevents oligosaccharides (carbohydrates from beans, vegetables and cereals that are poorly metabolized by most people) from getting into the colon and thereby excluding the unpleasant consequences.
Orlix® is recommended with the first bites of meal when we eat food that cause bloating (all kinds of beans, lentils, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, flour products, soymeal, garlic, carrots, parsley, sesame seeds and others).

Flatulence is a condition when an excessive amount of gas in a stomach is accompanied by bloating, frequently with explosive release of large amounts of digestive gases (flatulence).
Causes and Consequences
For proper functioning of the digestive system plant products which are the source of dietary fiber (cabbage, peas, beans, brown bread and others) must be included into the diet of modern people.
Besides the fiber required for our organism these products contain oligosaccharides which can’t be digested in the small intestine of the most people and therefore entering the large intestine where they are degraded by bacteria with intestinal gas generation.
Excessive gas leads to the stretching of the bowel that is felt as bloating and may be accompanied by pain. Besides physical discomfort flatulence causes psychological discomfort - noisy rumbling stomach and the fear of occurrence of an awkward situation in public places.
By refusing products which induce flatulence people does not just restrict themselves in food but also deprive the organism of the main source of vegetable protein.
Orlix® includes natural enzyme alpha-galactosidase which helps to digest the oligosaccharides contained in vegetables, fruits, beans and whole grains into monosaccharides in the small intestine. Consequently these substances which cause excessive gas don’t enter the colon where bacteria can produce excessive gas.
Orlix® is recommended with the first bites of meal to fence out the unpleasant consequences without denying pleasure.
