Protecting the stomach lining and reducing discomfort associated with acid reflux often means using medication that causes side-effects. This is particularly so in the case of proton pump inhibitors which can often prevent production of the stomach acids necessary for calcium absorption; this, in turn, can lead to an increase in osteoporosis-associated fractures.
- Plants such as liquorice, marshmallow, plantain or elm are sometimes helpful but the most active nutrient in this area is zinc L-carnosine. Combining the two elements of zinc and L-carnosine in equal parts produces a new molecule with superior properties to those of the two elements separately.
- Zinc deficiency leads to changes in the secretion of various cytokines, causing intestinal inflammation, reducing immune defences in the stomach and destabilising cell membranes.
- L-carnosine, which is naturally present in muscle tissue, optimises zinc's effect both by enabling it to reach the site of i ...
Gastroesophageal reflux is the term for what happens when part of the stomach’s contents – especially highly acidic gastric juices - travel back up the oesophagus. This disorder causes what is referred to as heartburn (though it is actually oesophagus burn). If it persists over the long-term, the consequences can be more serious: since the oesophagus wall is unable to withstand the acidity, it results in chronic inflammation with the potential for more serious damage (particularly ulcers).
