Acid Soothe (90 caps) Relief from Acid Discomfort & Heartburn
Discover Relief from Acid Discomfort and Occasional Heartburn*
The National Institutes of Health estimate that 60 million Americans experience a burning sensation in the chest or acid taste in their throats at least once a month.1
Occasional heartburn is a digestive problem that occurs when stomach acid comes into contact with the lining of the esophagus, causing irritation.
Most people suffer from heartburn occasionally, usually after a meal. Although commonly attributed to excessive acid production, occasional heartburn is often a symptom of impaired digestion as a result of factors including lifestyle, diet and genetics.
Supportive nutrients specific to the gastrointestinal region
While many products are formulated to address symptoms, Acid Soothe contains natural enzymes that work with your body to soothe indigestion and enhance your body’s natural digestive process.*
Enzymes produced by the human digestive system play a vital role in overall health. They ensure proper breakdown, absorption and utilization of nutrients from the foods we eat. A deficiency in our natural production of digestive enzymes can be an underlying cause of gastrointestinal complaints, including occasional heartburn and acid reflux.*
Acid Soothe contains plant-based enzymes and botanicals to support digestion and soothe symptoms associated with gastrointestinal (GI) distress.*
Acid Soothe contains amylase, lipase and cellulase Thera-blend™ enzymes to enhance carbohydrate, fat, and fiber digestion.*
Marshmallow Root has a high protein and mucilage-carbohydrate content, which the body can use to manufacture the necessary materials for new tissue production. Marshmallow also has mucilaginous (adhesive) properties enabling it to surround and expel foreign and toxic matter, having a soothing effect on the inflamed mucosal membrane tissue.* Marshmallow has been known to relieve irritation and inflammation of the mucous membranes of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts and to help normalize mucous secretions.* In conditions where inflammation is induced by excess accumulation of uric acid, Marshmallow Root may help remove this acid from the body.*
Papaya leaf naturally contains proteolyic (protein-digesting) enzymes and has been studied for its soothing benefits and cleansing activity within the GI tract. It has been known to support healthy inflammation and natural activity in the removal of improper proteins, promoting less stress on the body’s natural digestive processes.*
Herbal ingredients such as Prickly Ash and Gotu Kola, provide additional support for soothing discomfort.* Prickly Ash is known for aiding tissue during gastrointestinal distress.* Gotu Kola is uncommonly rich in B vitamins and potassium and is used as a natural diuretic.*
Zinc carnosine is a combination of the trace mineral zinc and L-carnosine. Zinc carnosine is a potent antioxidant, promoting a healthy inflammatory response in the gut.* It provides soothing support to the digestive tract, strengthening the mucosal lining of the stomach, and acting as a buffer to gastric acid.* Each 1 capsule serving of Acid Soothe provides 10 mg of zinc carnosine. According to a recent clinical trial, researchers reported beneficial effects of zinc carnosine on gut integrity and repair with standard dosages of 37.5 mg.2
