Life Extension Esophageal Guardian provides relief from heartburn (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, GERD) almost instantly by creating a barrier between the stomach and esophagus. The relief lasts up to 4 hours. It also helps to neutralize harsh stomach acid.

Many individuals have tried a host of remedies in an attempt to soothe their digestive tracts, but some still have an issue with gastric distress1-4 - with resulting discomfort along the delicate lining of the esophagus. A novel solution is now available in the form of what scientists call raft-forming alginate. This blend of all-natural ingredients in Esophageal Guardian provides a totally unique approach to protecting esophageal tissue against harsh stomach acids.

The mechanism behind Esophageal Guardian involves the formation of a temporary physical barrier - or raft - between the stomach and the esophagus.5 The secret to this technology is what happens when alginic acid and potassium bicarbonate come into contact with gastric acids. Alginic acid forms a gel and potassium bicarbonate produces bubbles that get trapped in that gel - producing a floating foam layer that sits above the contents of the stomach.5

Immediately, two other natural ingredients in this formulation - calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate - react with the stomach acid to create lift in the foam and make it firmer.5 Clinical studies show that this temporary foam barrier provides maximum support for delicate esophageal tissues.5,6 Also, the carbonate and bicarbonate in these ingredients help neutralize stomach acid.5

This protective foam barrier develops less than a minute after two natural berry flavor tablets of Esophageal Guardian are chewed and swallowed. Yet the relief it provides lasts up to 4 hours.5 Quite simply, Esophageal Guardian Natural Berry Flavor delivers the fastest-acting, longest-lasting, and most advanced technology available to support delicate esophageal and stomach tissues against gastric distress.
