Calcium carbonate?

Posted by emanuela on Jun 20, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Not used regularly for long-term digestive issues (previous H. Pylori infection, GERD etc), because it does not help at all in the short term (made things worse). It seems that it is weaker than Source Naturals' which could be because they recommend taking two capsules twice a day (while Doctor's Best recommend just one capsule twice a day), the PepZin content in one capsule is the same. Other concern: The Doctor's Best PepZin GI bottle I purchased a year ago lists "calcium carbonate" as the first ingredient in the "other ingredients" list. Now, that is an unwelcome discovery, as this ingredient is used as an antacid and so could well impair digestion. Iherb does not list calcium carbonate, so you may want to double-check before you purchase. Hope this is useful.

Thanks for your feedback!

Beware! You cannot take this if you are taking prescription meds.

This product contains the antacid calcium carbonate -- i.e., Maalox. You may not use over-the-counter antacids if you are taking other acid-reducing medications, such as Prilosec or Nexium. Also, I think that it is slightly dishonest for the makers of this product to say that their "vitamins" are helping your GI tract, when really their "Maalox" is relieving symptoms.
