Natural botanical extracts
- Gastric and duodenal ulcers
- Helicobacter pylori infection
is a very common condition that is characterized by a burning sensation
that starts in the upper abdomen and moves into the chest and that is
worse when lying down or bending forward. Heartburn sufferers can often
associate the problem with specific foods, with fatty foods, acidic
foods, alcohol and chocolate being known offenders. Heartburn is not
mere acid indigestion but usually a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux –
a condition where the contents of the stomach back up into the
esophagus because the sphincter between the stomach and esophagus is not
functioning properly. Since the cells of the esophagus are not meant to
handle this level of acidity, heartburn is extremely painful and can
have serious long term consequences such as esophageal cancer, narrowing
of the esophagus from scaring and Barrett’s esophagus. It is not only
the acid which causes problems. The stomach also contains pepsin and
bile acids which are equally dangerous for the cells of the esophagus.
Pepsin is a digestive enzyme which degrades proteins and the presence of
bile acids in the esophagus has been shown to increase the likeliness
of more serious injuries.
premise behind Gastro Relief™ is to provide quick and effective relief
from the symptoms of heartburn while addressing any fundamental
pathology which would cause the problem.
How Do the Ingredients in Gastro Relief Help?
Bactericidal Mastic Gum
Gastro Relief contains Mastic Gum which has been shown to wipe out bacteria called Helicobacter pylori, the cause behind the majority of gastric and duodenal ulcers. Untreated H. pylori also increases the risk of gastric cancer.
Protective Alginic Acid
When it comes to relieving heartburn, the key ingredient in Gastro
Relief™ is alginic acid. Alginic acid is a viscous substance found in
algae which absorbs water extremely quickly to form a “raft” on top of
the gastric contents. This “raft” has two effects; it prevents the
gastric contents from being pushed back up the esophagus and also coats
the esophagus if the gastric contents were to reach the esophagus. Since
it acts as a barrier and not simply by neutralizing the acidity or by
preventing acid from being generated in the stomach, the alginic acid
also protects the esophagus from the pepsin and bile salts found in the
stomach and also known to damage the upper digestive tract.
Acidic Vitamin C
heartburn in isolation with heartburn medication targeting the acidity
of the stomach is narrow minded and only provides temporary relief.
Indeed, the problem with reflux is not that the stomach is too acidic;
often the reverse is actually true. The valve that releases the contents
of the stomach into the intestinal tract is triggered by acidity, if
the stomach contents are not acidic enough, this valve does not open and
the stomach contents back up into the esophagus causing pain and
irritation. This is why Gastro Relief™ contains Vitamin C which is
acidic, instead of the typical acidity buffers.
Healing Nitric Oxide & Zinc-Carnosine
and their reduced products have been consumed for thousands of years.
For the last fifty years nitrates have been the subject of serious
propaganda and regulatory restrictions. There have been suggestions that
intake of these ingredients can cause cancers due to the link between
cured meats and cancer. Yet population studies and various toxicological
studies show that nitrates are important nutrients with significant
health benefits of which we are being deprived. In fact various
researchers suggest that nitrates are probably responsible for the
health benefits associated with various fruits and vegetables and the so
called “Mediterranean Diet”. In addition various vegetables are rich
sources of nitrates and an intake of a plate of salad or a glass of
beetroot juice offers many times the nitrate level that the regulatory
bodies have set as an upper limit.
Nitrates produce nitric oxide
(NO) in the gut, which improves blood flow and nutrient delivery to the
stomach lining to help heal it. Zinc-Carnosine also helps to heal the
cells lining the gut that have been damaged either by H. pylori, stomach acids or harsh pharmaceuticals.
Mastic Gum & H. pylori
studies have clearly shown the effectiveness of this resin with 80% of
patients receiving mastic gum for two weeks reporting significant
improvements in their symptoms. Further test tube studies confirmed that
Mastic Gum kills H. pylori in concentrations easily attainable through supplementation.
Zinc-Carnosine & H. pylori-related gastritis
Zinc Carnosine has received much attention lately thanks to its ability
to up-regulate key antioxidant enzymes thereby preventing free radicals
from damaging cells. Studies have confirmed that Zinc Carnosine has
anti-ulcer properties and prevents gastric mucosal injury. Animal
studies also show that Zinc Carnosine is indicated in H. pylori infections as the molecule prevents the development of H. pylori related gastritis.
Nitric Oxide & Inflammation
Studies also clearly demonstrate that Nitric oxide precursors are
effective anti-inflammatory agents with protective effects against
gastritis. Potassium Nitrate is a precursor to Nitric Oxide. Nitric
Oxide is a potent vasodilator and increases blood flow to the gastric
mucosa enhancing repair and the inflow of nutrients and oxygen. Higher
nitric oxide levels in the stomach were also shown to increase effective
Supportive Ascorbic Acid
The acidic nature of Vitamin C helps lower the pH of the stomach, which
increases the chances of the LES closing properly and reducing the risk
of heartburn. The presence of ascorbic acid also enhances the
conversion of dietary nitrate and salivary nitrite to NO by gastric
juices. Those with H. pylori infections often have been found to have reduced ascorbic acid levels in their gastric secretions.
Alginic Acid & Reflux
studies clearly demonstrate the protective role of alginic acid,
protecting the esophagus from the damaging potential of the refluxate,
not merely the acid. This has led some experts in the field to lean
towards natural products such as alginate rafts to address the problem
instead of using more conventional approaches. An added bonus is that
alginic acid works extremely quickly providing relief within a few
minutes. Researchers have also confirmed that Alginic acid is more
effective than ranitidine and omeprazole, two drugs used in reflux,
during the first hour after dosing. It is not surprising that this
method of treatment for heartburn has been around for more than 30
medications such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and H2-receptor
antagonists are among the most sold medications in the world. This
means that and overwhelming percentage of people suffer from gastric
disturbances and heartburn. Unfortunately, these medications that are
designed to reduce hydrochloric acid (HCL) secretion in the stomach have
some very serious implications. Stomach acid is required to properly
digest food, which releases nutrients for absorption by the body. It
also kills swallowed pathogens and reduces the risk of some infections.
The use of antacid medications and resulting low HCL secretion has been
associated with an increased risk of bone fractures (likely due to
malabsorption of nutrients), deficiencies in various nutrients like
vitamin B12 which can contribute to the development of heart, brain and
nerve diseases to name a few, food allergies due to undigested proteins,
drug hypersensitivities, increased cases of pneumonia, and much more.
