Heartburn and Reflux

Heartburn and Reflux are common problems. Generally, these issues can be helped with digestive enzymes or digestive enzymes containing betaine (stomach acid). Betaine is helpful because it helps digest proteins and turns off the proton pump which makes stomach acid. Heartburn is generally caused by a lack of stomach acid, not too much. If there is not enough stomach acid produced by the proton pump then there is insufficient acid to both digest food properly and turn off the pump. If the proton pump is not turned off the stomach continues to produce stomach acid after the food is gone causing heartburn.

The products listed here are designed to control heartburn. However, you may also need a digestive enzyme. Digestive Enzymes are listed in their own section. 

Our recommendation is to start with Acid-Ease. If Acid-Ease doesn't control your symptoms then add GI Guard AM and PM.

Acid Soothe is designed more to control the symptoms of heartburn, not to prevent it.

We have found all of these products work very well and don't have the risks of proton pump inhibitors, which are only intended for short-term use.
