Great for Ulcers, GERD, Heartburn (often related to H Pylori infection)
Posted by Reviewer2588465 on Jul 25, 2012
I've read that a lot of ulcers, GERD, and heartburn is related to H Pylori infection. If you diet has been full of sugar and simple carbs, then there is a good chance. Google the internet about how to rid yourself of an H Pylori infection the natural way. It invariably includes changing your diet so you're not feeding the bacteria anymore (no sugar or simple carbs, easy on iron containing foods). This supplement helps to kill it off. You also have to reduce inflammation of the gut (H Pylori hides in the folds of the gut and the killing agent needs to get to it.) I also worked on healing the gut with glutamine, DGL, and PepzinGI. It can be a long process, but it definitely worth it! You can also go the route I did - I went to a holistic practitioner and used their supplements, but also took this with it to try and reduce the cost.
No more Zantac or Maalox

Chronic stomach pain, and past history of uclers, I was taking everything. Nexium never worked, aciphex really didn't work, Zantac came close to working for the most part. I tried ulcertrol - and it works for me.
This is a great product

It helps my night acid reflux. If I take it with one probiotic pill before I go to bed. I do not have acid reflux. My daughter thinks it is great ...

I take from 2-4 of these at a time in between meals, but it works with food too. Really good for leaky gut.
Worked very well for me and a friend

You have to keep taking it for a few weeks, but this completely healed my ulcer & a friend had the same results.

I've suffered from a stomach ulcer for over a year. 4 weeks into taking Ulcetrol twice a day and 2000mg of Mastic Gum at night on empty stomach I am better than ever. Brilliant. I feel like I'm really healing.

I use this in conjunction w/ l-glutamine, DGL, and pro-biotics -- has been helpful for an ulcer.
I only took a few doses, but....

It seemed to upset my already very-upset stomach! I have a recurrent duodenal ulcer condition and was using Siberian pine nut oil, along with marshmallow root and a licorice compound, and seemed to be doing much better. I ordered these because I hoped they would accelerate the healing process. I tried just a couple, and each time I felt much worse. I had to "guess" it was these pills. I may be wrong and it was just a coincidence, but I stopped taking them nevertheless. I still wonder if it was the ingredient in this product..mastic gum (which is an acid)... that was to blame.
No luck for me

I have chronic epigastric pain with all the symptoms of a peptic ulcer, however, my medical tests come back negative. I tried taking this product twice daily along with mastic gum before bed for 4 months with no improvement at all in my symptoms. I'm happy that this product works for other people but for me - no luck.
