Did you know that the calcium carbonate in most mainstream antacids is essentially ground-up limestone? This mineral certainly helps reduce acid, but it cannot be absorbed or digested by the body to any great degree. In fact, only 2% of any calcium carbonate consumed can be absorbed by the body. Recently there’s been concern that all that calcium carbonate or limestone might contribute to kidney stones and build-up in the arteries, which could lead to an increased risk of heart attack.
Brainard’s Natural Remedies Antacids does not contain calcium carbonate – ever. Instead, it relies on natural blueberry fiber, fruit extracts and a blend of absorbable minerals to help manage acid naturally.
