GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is a disease of the gastrointestinal tract caused by stomach acid rising to reflux or the esophagus.
This can be caused by obesity, stress or consuming certain foods such as carbonated foods.
Gastrointestinal disorders can be overcome with lifestyle changes and drugs and supplements that can reduce the risk of digestive disorders.
Postbiotics are bacteria that have been killed off.
Can help relieve diarrhea caused by bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections and relieve inflammation of the digestive system (inflammatory bowel disease).
Licorice, also known as liquorice root, is one of the safe herbal remedies for GERD.
The way Licorice works is by increasing mucus production, so it can protect the stomach and esophagus from stomach acid.
Curcumin and essential oils in turmeric act as antioxidants that protect and repair cells from free radical damage.
Not only does it reduce stomach acid levels, this turmeric extract can also prevent stomach acid from rising because turmeric has an anti-H2 receptor effect which is used to prevent gastric ulcers due to histamine release.
The gel found in aloe vera leaves has been used for hundreds of years as a way to lighten and improve gastrointestinal health. This ingredient contains large amounts of B vitamins, nutrients that stimulate the absorption of other nutrients as well as digestion.
Brown Seaweeds (Fucoidan)
The fucoidan found in brown seaweed is believed to function to maintain gastric health by increasing the thickness of the stomach lining.
By increasing the thickness of the stomach lining, fucoidan can protect stomach cells from excess stomach acid, thereby preventing gastric ulcers.
