PepZinGI is a 1:1 molecular combination of L-Carnosine (B-Alanyl-L-Histidine) and Zinc. PepZinGI enhances stomach lining integrity by stimulating the production of mesenchymal IGF-1 and by suppressing gastric epithelial NF-kB and IL-8 expression. Also, PepZinGI exerts antioxidant effects which directly reduce cellular damage caused by reactive oxygen species. The actions of PepZinGI are based on the molecular combination of L-Carnosine and Zinc, which has an affinity to adhere to and coat gastric mucosa. Because of their fast diffusion rates, non-molecular combinations (admixtures) of L-Carnosine and Zinc are far less effective.

I have been taking Zinlori by Metagenics for a couple years for stomach problems. It worked extremely well, but it costs $45 for a one month supply. Jarrow PepzinGI appears to be the same formula and at half the price. I have been taking it for a few weeks now with good results.
I have had major heartburn for years. Have taken every OTC med. and MOST prescriptions. This is the only thing that I've had, that I don't at some point in the day/night have at least "SOME" heartburn.
Didn't help to much

relieves acid reflux/heartburn when taken with L-glutamine
Posted by Reviewer2353930 on Dec 12, 2009
I was on acid blockers for acid reflux/heartburn. This helped my symptoms but I still could suffer from both while I was taking the acid blockers. A nutritionist recommended PepZinGi and L-glutamine as a combination. I took both and my symptoms went away and have not recurred as long as I continue to take both. I take two of these tablets with food and 4 L-Glutamine 1000's on an empty stomach. I have skipped PepZinGi for a couple of days and the L-glutamine seemed to work by itself. However, I tried stop taking PepZinGI altogether and mild symptoms returned after a week, so I find I have to keep taking both.
Really helps with stomach ulcers!

I've gone on and off this supplement and definitely notice that my stomach distress is less when I take it. Within a week off of it, I'll notice a flair up of pain on the left side of stomach, which I think is an ulcer. A day or two back on this, and I'm fine.
Seems to help

I haven't taken this long enough to be sure, as I was apparently not taking the right amount for awhile. But it seems to help, especially better after taking two caps morn and two caps evening.
