- Protects the integrity of the gastric mucosa.
- Reduces discomfort associated with acid reflux.
- L-carnosine optimises zinc's effect by fixing it to gastric mucosal cells.
This zinc L-carnosine combination is a natural, effective and well-tolerated solution for protecting the integrity of gastric mucosa and preventing acid reflux-associated disorders, now available to buy at Supersmart, in vegetarian capsules.
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. Zinc deficiency leads to changes in the secretion of various cytokines, causing intestinal inflammation, reducing immune defences in the stomach and destabilising cell membranes.
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.
L-carnosine, which is naturally present in muscle tissue, optimises zinc's effect both by enabling it to reach the site of inflammation or ulceration and by fixing it to gastric mucosal cells. The benefits to tissue are long-lasting.
