Simethicone is a non-toxic, biologically inert and extremely safe ingredient; even at amounts far higher than used in our FDA listed over-the-counter drug product. Simethicone decreases the surface tension of gas bubbles, causing them to combine into larger bubbles in the stomach that can be passed more easily, helping baby pass gas and feel nearly instant relief from that full, bloated feeling. Simethicone and similar silica-based antifoaming agents have been safely used as ingredients in foods, drugs and cosmetics for nearly 100 years.
Agave Syrup is a natural sweetener extracted from various species of the agave plant, a succulent plant native to the deserts of the southwestern US and Mexico. Agave syrup consists of roughly 56% fructose and 20% glucose. It is about 1 ½ times sweeter than table sugar.
