Frequently Asked Questions

Why are the Gentle Digest Capsules white now? Didn't they used to be light brown?

Gentle Digest is manufactured under strict specifications and process verification which occur every 30 minutes during the packaging process to ensure quality and accuracy in our products. Being a natural product, the color changes don’t always mean that the product is of lesser potency or its effectiveness has been impacted by the ingredients being used. Chicory Root comes roasted and non - roasted, depending on the harvesting season. Both forms meet our strict specifications and it does not compromise the efficacy of the product. The color is darker in nature when roasted.

Are the probiotics in Gentle Digest plant based?

We use Lactorspore sporogenes - it is a lactic acid culture.

  • It helped my cat for constipation

    By on

    My 8 year old female cat within the past 2 years developed constipation issues, and we had tried just about every holistic trick in the book (pumpkin, and then here lately adding some canned tuna to water to increase her water intake), but she would still have accidents around the house about once a month. Since starting this Gentle Digest around Christmas 2017, she has not had a single outside-the-litter-box episode (it is now February 2018). She loves it--well, on top of the canned tuna lol--and I plan to continue using it for her digestive health.

  • makes a difference

    By on

    I think this has improved my cat's stools - he's sadly sick with cancer, but I notice a difference. Plus, it's not too hard to get him to take these (compared to the powders out there) - either he'll eat it off his plate, or I give it to him like a pill. I'm lucky he's a good pill-taker, but actually works better to know he got a full dose than sprinkling powders.

    I'm still using the product, but I don't see as much of an improvement as I'd like.

  • Great Product!

    By on

    My dog was having terrible constipation problems until I started giving him these capsules. He's old, so I didn't want to give him more drugs, but these are all natural. I definitely recommend this product!

  • Great quality

    By on

    I just recently started giving this product to my gassy German Shepherds. Although both weigh over 50 pounds and have to take 3 a day, these were super easy to give. The order even came super fast!

  • It works!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    This product does what is promised. I give my 35 lbs dog 1 capsule twice a day before meal. I roll it into Honest Kitchen herbal supplement. I also give my dog Gentle Digest treats, but not just 2 a day as suggested, but probably 8-10 a day. All these although don't stop my dog from pooping sometimes in a middle of night, but it is NO DIARRHEA! It is just normal stool, soft, but fomed, no mucous, no blood! For a 13 y.o. with IBS, I consider it a success!

  • Affordable and Effective Probiotics

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    We've tried other probiotics but this one works the best for our girl. I break open the capsules and sprinkle the recommended dosage over her food. Along with a commercial raw food diet, this and a bit of canned pumpkin have helped to regulate our pup's gut.

  • Helpful product for a senior dog.

    By on

    My 15 year old American Eskimo has developed kidney problems. Her digestive tract is also affected. I started giving her one a day since she is about 20 pounds. Although this will not "cure" the problem it has helped her appetite and energy level. Nice to know it does not have a lot of chemicals.
