great for acid reflux and heartburn!

Posted by Reviewer2204872 on Dec 29, 2016

I read that this works well for heartburn and it is true; since I started taking this, I hardly EVER have heartburn! Heartburn can cause long-term damage to the esophagus! This really works and I am so grateful:)

Gave me heartburn

Posted by 5175626333368740103 on Dec 29, 2016

I have silent reflux. They say that reflux can be caused by a deficit in stomach acid, so I thought it would be worth a try. Alas, it immediately gave me heartburn and reflux. I even tried emptying half the contents out of the capsule and taking a half-dose but the result was still heartburn. At least now I know that I don't have too little stomach acid and can move onto finding another solution. Edit: It ended up taking a month to recover from taking this and get my reflux back to a more manageable level. It really ramped things up. If you take it, be careful.

It doesn't work with my histamine intolerance

Posted by 4939272651084099868 on Dec 26, 2016

I'm histamine intolerant and therefore I react on lots of things and also supplements. This is one of them I react to, so I can't use it unfortunately. I really wanted it to work though because of the great reviews!! Great service Iherb!!
