Product Overview


  • Two Month Supply
  • CarnoZinc Complex
  • Patented Zinc-Carnosine
  • Protects Stomach Lining
  • Vegan
  • Dietary Supplement

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.

Suggested Use

Take 2 capsules per day with meals, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.

Rice flour and magnesium stearate (vegetarian source). Capsule consists of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose. Suitable for vegans.

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!

Posted by Reviewer2247103 on Nov 11, 2009

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

Posted by Reviewer2732190 on Oct 18, 2009

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.
