Anyone can have occasional indigestion, no matter how hard we try to eat well. But some people have more sensitive stomachs and end up experiencing indigestion, or “heartburn” more regularly. For them, there is Brainard’s Natural Rememdies Antacid – a natural way to manage acid, with blueberry fiber and fruit extracts. And it contains no calcium carbonate – ever! Indigestion, acid indigestion and heartburn are words used to describe the same thing: acid build-up in the stomach, which may spill over into the esophagus, the tube that connects your throat to your stomach. The acid comes from the stomach, where it is needed to digest food. In the esophagus, however, it can cause a burning sensation behind your breast bone or higher towards your throat, belching, make it hard to swallow, or leave an acid or bitter taste. Some types of food, like rich or spicy foods, exercise, or lying down after eating, can help bring on heartburn. But sometimes, no matter how carefully we make our food choices, we can still get unexpected heartburn. Some people who have heartburn symptoms often and for longer periods of time may have a more serious problem called Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD. If you think you may have GERD, please consult your doctor.
“Antacids” is a term often used loosely to describe several different types of remedies and medicines that help deal with indigestion. The most common type of Antacids, such as Tums, contains calcium carbonate, which is essentially limestone. As you add this mineral to the stomach, it helps neutralize acid. Trouble is, when the acid is neutralized, your body may respond by simply producing more acid. In addition, limestone can’t be absorbed or digested by the body very well. Recently there’s been concern that all that calcium carbonate or limestone might contribute to kidney stones and build-up in the arteries. In addition, overuse of antacids may result in diarrhea and constipation. Read more about calcium carbonate here. Another type of medicine sometimes referred to as antacids are actually acid reducers or blockers. They include H-2-receptor blockers and proton pump inhibitors (PPI). These drugs were originally prescription-only, but some of them are now available over the counter. They work differently from traditional antacids, in that they intervene more significantly in the body’s processes to reduce how much acid is produced. In addition, proton pump inhibitors have been linked to a higher risk of pneumonia and certain types of bacterial infection, as well as with an increased risk of bone fractures. At Brainard’s Natural Remedies, we are no experts on RX and OTC medications, so please consult your doctor if you are considering these kinds of drugs. However, what we do know is that we prefer to avoid pharmaceutical drugs – whenever possible – and instead look for more natural remedies for heartburn, as well as more natural ways to keep our bodies healthy and in balance.
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.
Brainard’s Natural Remedies Antacid is different from all other antacids, because it is relies primarily on blueberry fiber to provide relief. An accidental discovery several years ago, that fresh blueberries are one of very few natural remedies for heartburn, eventually led to the patent-pending blend now contained in Brainard’s Natural Remedies Antacid. Read more about Elliott Brainard’s story here. In the meantime, many sufferers of occasional indigestion have come to rely on Brainard’s to get relief quickly and naturally. In addition to blueberry fiber, fruit extracts and absorbable minerals in Brainard’s help relieve occasional heartburn quickly and naturally. There is no calcium carbonate – ever – in Brainard’s products. Calcium carbonate is essentially ground limestone, and cannot be absorbed well by the body. Instead, it may contribute to arterial plaque and kidney stones. Brainard’s unique blend of fruit extracts includes bilberry, elderberry and pomegranate extracts, ingredients known from folk remedies to have beneficial effects on sensitive stomachs. Brainard’s Natural Remedies Antacid also contains calcium citrate and magnesium citrate – two forms of the minerals that are much better absorbed by the body than calcium carbonate. Brainard’s Natural Remedies is gluten free, vegan, non-GMO, and contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives or coloring. It’s unique, proprietary blend is patent pending and the product is made in the U.S.A. Click here to find more Product Information.
