What is Heartburn?
The American College of Gastroenterology estimates 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 and acid discomfort after a meal are often symptoms of impaired digestion due to lifestyle, overall health and poor dietary choices.
Enzymes in the digestive system play a vital role in overall health. They ensure proper breakdown, absorption, and utilization of nutrients from food. A deficiency in the natural production of digestive enzymes may be an underlying cause of gastrointestinal complaints, including occasional heartburn and acid discomfort.*
Formulated for Occasional Heartburn
Zinc carnosine is included to optimize the mucosal lining of the stomach, acting as a buffer to gastric acid.* 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 daily.* (2)
Enzymes such as Amylase, lipase and cellulase enzymes work to enhance carbohydrate, fat and plant cell wall digestion.*
Marshmallow Root is known for its ability to relieve irritation of the mucous membranes in the gastrointestinal tract and to help normalize mucous secretions.*(3)
Papaya leaf naturally contains papain, a protein digesting enzyme that has been studied for its soothing benefits and cleansing activity within the GI tract.* It has a history of supporting the body’s natural digestive processes.*(4)
Gotu Kola provides additional support for the intestines.* Gotu Kola is known for aiding tissue during gastrointestinal distress, and is uncommonly rich in B vitamins and potassium, as well as being a natural diuretic.*
