Download an Info Sheet

Description of Formula

Reflux relief is a special combination of botanical and mineral nutrients specifically designed to provide relief for occasional heartburn and acid indigestion while promoting healthy stomach function. The mineral salts Nahcolite and Limestone, extracted from ore bodies are a natural source of Sodium Bicarbonate and Calcium Carbonate which work as alkaline neutralizers to maintain stomach acid balance. The freeze-dried extracts of soothing plants such as certified organic High Mallow, Licorice, Chamomile, and Aloe are naturally processed to ensure optimum concentration and maximum absorption to promote healthy gastric function.*

Natural Calcium Carbonate, also known as Limestone, is a pure mineral found in nature in sedimentary deposits. Limestone is unlike the calcium carbonate which is produced though chemical processes. Limestone is extracted exclusively from natural sources with traditional mining techniques and then micro-granulated. The chemical properties of Limestone make it both a Calcium integrator and an alkalizing salt, capable of exerting a buffering action in the presence of acids and supporting sensitive mucous membranes. Natural Sodium Bicarbonate extracted from Nahcolite deposits which exists in nature in large geologic masses found at a depth of more than 500 meters. Sodium Bicarbonate from Nahcolite is unlike chemically manufactured sodium bicarbonate which exists as an "amorphous" salt. Nahcolite's chemical properties make it an alkalizing salt, capable of exerting a buffering action in the presence of acids.*

Aloe vera is a plant native to the warm regions of the West Indies. By cutting into its thick leaves its medicinal properties are apparent in the rich, transparent, and mucilaginous gel it contains. The mucilaginous materials are rich in therapeutic pol ysacchari des. These pol ysacchari des act as both a detoxifying and protective material within the lining of the intestines, and also inhibit the secretion of stomach acids. Thanks to the particular qualities of polysaccharides, Aloe gel also contributes to the creation of an ideal habitat for theproliferation of a healthy intestinal bacterial flora. Clinical studies on Aloe gel have shown its ability to regulate digestive tract functioning.* injury.*

Licorice root exerts a protective action on the walls of the stomach; it also increases the secretion of mucin, a naturally produced gastro-protective substance. Licorice has been reported to be a co-adjuvant for gastritis and gastric and duodenal ulcers in the World Health Organization monographs. The active ingredients in Chamomile flowers exert protective actions on the mucous membranes and sooth sensitive tissues. European monographs recommend it for minor gastrointestinal disturbances including minor spasms, epiegastric distention, flatulence, and eructation.*

Marshmallow is native to Europe though is now commonly found in the United States. It has a long traditional history of use in both the Eastern and Western traditions. Due to its high mucilage content, Marshmallow is known for its ability to smooth irritated mucous membranes including those of the stomach and intestines. It is also often used as an ingredient in lip balms and skin lotions for the same purpose.*

Complimentary Herbs and Helpful Advice
Chia Fresh Daily Fiber provides rich mucilaginous properties to the GI tract. Likewise, Serenity Phyto-Caps or our Chamomile Liquid Extract can also be useful when gastric acidity may be the consequence of anxiety or stressful conditions.
