Description

GastricSoothe™ utilizes a compound of zinc and L-carnosine that soothes and protects the gastric mucosal lining. Zinc L-carnosine also acts as an antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and assists the body’s own system in restoring healthy gastric cellular integrity.*

More About Zinc L-carnosine Zinc is a critical component to a number of physiological processes in our bodies. Some of these functions include:

  • growth and metabolism of cells,
  • healing of wounds,
  • maintenance of carbohydrate
  • and maintenace of lipid metabolism. (1)

When zinc is complexed to L-carnosine, it dissociates in the stomach at a much slower rate. This prolonged presence in the stomach allows it to maintain its gastric healing effect over a longer period of time.(1) Zinc/L-carnosine may also help maintain the bacterial balance of the stomach and GI tract. Studies suggest that the zinc/L-carnosine compound may have effects on certain strains of harmful bacteria, such as h. pylori, and, therefore, is able to help maintain a GI environment that is favorable to health. By supporting the bacterial balance in the stomach, it can also help maintain a healthy mucosal lining.(1) In an eight-week study, 28 patients with gastric discomfort were given a zinc/L-carnosine compound and monitored. Improvement was rated on a scale of subjective and objective symptoms. After four weeks, 68.4% were considered to be “significantly improved.” After eight weeks, the “significantly improved” rating was 68.8%. Over 60% of these patients remained in the “significantly improved” category well after the treatment was discontinued, suggesting a lasting effect of the zinc/L-carnosine compound beyond the time it is taken.(1) *These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
