As a health conscious person, you are probably familiar with inflammation. At its best, inflammation is simply your body’s healthy and natural response to injury or infection. But the problem with inflammation arises when it stays elevated for prolonged periods of time. When that happens, it can wreak havoc on your health especially in your digestive system.
Throughout your stomach and esophagus—and indeed your entire digestive tract lives a protective layer of mucus. This mucus acts like a shield between your stomach lining and stomach acid. But in many people with acid reflux, this protective mucus has been drastically compromised.
As this protective mucus lining becomes eroded through prolonged inflammation, gas, tiny food particles and acid are pushed farther up in the stomach into the diaphragm and ultimately reflux up into the esophagus. Once there, you get burning acid in your throat, heartburn, indigestion and misery. The fact is, PPIs simply don’t address the low stomach acid levels and inflammation that are so often at the root of acid reflux. But here’s the good news you’ve been waiting for…
You don’t have to rely on the frequently recommended “solutions” to get relief from the discomfort that makes you miserable and keeps you up at night.
Research has shown that three natural ingredients have remarkable effectiveness in relieving heartburn and acid reflux, while helping soothe inflammation in the mucosal lining of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. The results are fast, the benefits long lasting, and most important, you’ll experience no side effects whatsoever!
You might be familiar with licorice as a sweet flavoring agent, but licorice also has a long history of use as a soother of digestive discomfort associated with heartburn and acid reflux. And there’s a special preparation of licorice called deglycyrrhizinated licorice, or DGL for short, that is extremely effective at this.
Multiple scientific studies have shown that DGL has the ability to restore the integrity of the esophageal, stomach and intestinal lining by increasing the secretion of protective mucus that lines the gastrointestinal tract. This lining is a key component of the stomach’s defense against the erosive properties of acid.
One double-blind study compared the benefits of DGL to the conventional approach and found that it was equally effective at reducing the uncomfortable symptoms when evaluated at both 6 and 12 weeks of use.
More importantly, other clinical trials have demonstrated the benefits of DGL for supporting the integrity of the stomach lining.
In addition, research on a specific form of DGL, called GutProtector, has shown it can also help with functional dyspepsia, or discomfort in the upper belly or abdomen occurring during or right after eating.
The bottom line: DGL can help boost the mucosal lining of the stomach, thereby reducing damage, preventing inflammation and curbing symptoms. That’s why I recommend DGL to anyone with reflux, heartburn or other symptoms of indigestion.
Aloe vera was dubbed the “plant of immortality” by the ancient Egyptians. This soothing gel contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that have been used for decades to relieve the stinging from sunburn and other burns. And when it comes to reflux and heartburn, aloe vera offers many terrific benefits.
In one study, researchers found that aloe improved intestinal motility, thereby speeding up bowel emptying. At the end of the study, participants reported less bloating after meals and reduced flatulence.
In another double-blind, placebo-controlled study, researchers tested aloe for its inflammatory response in the intestines. The result: Clinical researchers found that patients who took aloe for 4 weeks had measurable improvements in inflammatory factors with no side effects.
Please note: The aloe plant can have some unwanted laxative effects, so it is extremely important to find an aloe product that has the latex portion removed to avoid this issue.
Slippery elm is an herb famous for its soothing properties. As the name implies, extracts of the bark of the slippery elm tree are often “slippery” producing copious amounts of compounds called polysaccharides.
These compounds are very similar in nature to the makeup of the mucus in your stomach and can augment your body’s own mucus production, helping to protect the lining of the esophagus, stomach and intestines.
The polysaccharides found in slippery elm can help promote a healthy inflammatory response in the stomach and intestines, making it a valuable ally for promoting healthy overall digestion in addition to helping with acid problems.
