HCl-Ease provides highly effective, targeted nutritional support for gastroesophageal health.
The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is a ring of muscle at the entrance to the stomach. When functioning normally, the LES closes as soon as food passes through it. With improper closure, stomach acid may move up into the esophagus, potentially resulting in signi cant discomfort, and even tissue damage.
Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmariea), a member of the Rosaceae family, supplies avonoids, phenoglycosides and essential oil. It also provides tannins and salicin, a plant salicylate. It possesses strong astringent properties, and has been shown to promote the excretion of uric acid
Eyebright (Euphrasia o cionalis) contains aucubin, an iridoid glycoside. It has historically been used orally for hoarseness and irritation of the throat, as it supports mucous membrane integrity
Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus), a member of the Mallow family, supplies an abundant amount of pectin and mucilage, and possesses strong antioxidant activity. As a mucilaginous nutrient, it provides signi cant support to mucous membranes. Interestingly, it has been shown to inhibit the adhesion of H. pylori to gastric epithelial cells.
Marshmallow (Althaea o cinalis) has been documented to support pharyngeal mucosa health. It has been acknowledged that Marshmallow polysaccharides provide signi cant antitussive activity.
Asian plantain (Plantago asiatica) extract is provided to supply mucilage, iridoid glycoside (including aucubin) and catapol. Oral use has been documented to support oral and pharyngeal mucosa health.
Pepsin is provided as digestive support. A powerful proteolytic enzyme, pepsin is most active in at a normal gastric pH of 1.5-2.5, where it participates in the partial degradation of proteins into peptides for absorption or further degradation in the small intestine by pancreatic enzymes.
