What Is It?
Gastro Relief is a unique and revolutionary supplement that supports gastric health. Mastic gum, ginger, zinc-carnosine, vitamin C, nitric oxide-producing potassium nitrate, and sodium alginate provide fast symptomatic relief while promoting tissue healing.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Gastro Relief is designed to quickly and effectively provide natural support against the pain of heartburn while providing nutrients to target potential causes of heartburn and heal the cells lining the stomach. Mastic gum fights against H. pylori, a bacterium that is at the root of the majority of heartburn cases and stomach issues. Vitamin C increases the acidity of the stomach, since most gastric issues stem from a lack of stomach acid as opposed to too much! Ginger calms the stomach during digestive upset. Zinc-carnosine and nitric oxide promote healing of stomach lining cells that may have been damaged from a bacterial infection or from an inappropriate pH. Finally, sodium alginate prevents gastric contents from backing up into the esophagus and protects the esophagus against damage from acidity.
Who Should Take It?
Gastro Relief is an excellent alternative to antacids or conventional medications to reduce heartburn symptoms while actually promoting healing to the damaged tissues.
Take 2 capsules daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
