Heartburn Soothe from Enzymedica
This product stops occasional heartburn fast. It works in minutes, lasts for hours, and can be taken any time day or night. It contains alginate, a gel-forming compound from brown seaweed that acts as a natural barrier. It works like a raft, floating on top of the heartburn-causing acid pocket of the stomach, keeping it from bubbling up into the esophagus and relieves irritation naturally. * Enzymedica combines alginate with specific buffering agents
and a unique botanical extract, including prickly pear cactus, that work together to improve the strength and flexibility of that barrier. Best of all, it doesn’t have thattypical foamy or chalky aftertaste.
Acid Soothe™ from Enzymedica
this formula is ideal for those looking to repair their digestive system after years of discomfort. This vegan product takes a multipronged approach to relief with herbs to soothe the digestive tract, zinc carnosine to repair the gut lining and enzymes to break down troublesome foods, while increasing nutrient absorption.* Acid Soothe™ also contains a blend of minerals and botanicals, including zinc carnosine, marshmallow root, papaya leaf
and gotu kola.
Acid Soothe™ Chewable from Enzymedica
for anyone who doesn’t like swallowing pills or capsules these great tasting, berry flavored tablets contain no artificial fillers, excipients or sweeteners. With all of the benefits of the Acid Soothe™ capsules, this powerful formula also contains Thera-blend™ enzymes as well as PepzinGI® zinc carnosine that optimizes the mucosal lining of the stomach.*
Betaine HCl from Enzymedica
do you find that you belch after meals? Betaine HCl may be for you. Sometimes, when you think you have too much acid, your problem may actually be that you don’t have enough. This vegan supplement helps when low acid causes occasional heartburn. Betaine HCI increases acid levels so the stomach can naturally digest properly.* Enzymes are added to support gentle digestion, while MucoSave, made from extracts of a combination of prickly pear cactus and olive leaves, soothes the stomach lining.* Hydrochloric acid (HCI) and pepsin are critical to digestion and nutrient absorption, and without enough, gut-related issues, including occasional heartburn may occur. Most supplements contain pepsin from pigs. Betaine HCI from Enzymedica uses a blend of fungal protease
enzymes that act as pepsin–promoting the breakdown of proteins in an acidic
environment, but with an entirely vegetarian approach.
