Heartburn Soothe‡ features alginate, or alginic acid, a viscous compound found in the cell walls of brown algae. Alginate can hold over 200-300 times its own weight in water. In the stomach, this gelling substance works like a raft, floating on top of the acid pocket of stomach contents after a meal.
This “raft” keeps the acid from entering the esophagus. * When acid can’t enter the esophagus, it not only helps with soothing the sensation of occasional heartburn, but also the tissue of the esophagus is allowed the opportunity to rebuild.*
How does alginate work with the other ingredients?
Heartburn Soothe‡ combines alginate with buffering agents and a unique botanical extract. Together, these ingredients act as a barrier and buffer for gastric acid while also soothing the gastrointestinal tract lining.* Multiple clinical trials have shown a natural approach can be safe and efficacious.
When combined with the buffering agents calcium carbonate and trimethylglycine and a unique prickly pear cactus extract, the alginate barrier’s strength and flexibility improves. It also allows us to use less alginate, for a better-tasting tablet (no foamy, chalky, or unpleasant taste!).
Heartburn Soothe‡ uses a prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus indica) extract made from the flattened stems, rather than the fruit. Similar to Aloe Vera in action, but without the irritant laxatives, Opuntia ficus indica extract cools and soothes the gastrointestinal tract lining. *
How was Heartburn Soothe‡ created?
This breakthrough formula was created through a partnership with Enzymedica and SRQ Bio, a division of the world-renowned Roskamp Institute, led by scientists who uncovered the genetic cause of Alzheimer’s disease. Heartburn Soothe‡* is the result of detailed scientific research to provide immediate results to soothe occasional heartburn. *
‡This formula is for occasional heartburn (not intended for chronic heartburn).
