Esophageal Guardian
Natural Berry Flavor
60 chewable tablets

Item Catalog Number: 01737

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.

        Comments about Life Extension Esophageal Guardian, 60 chewable tablets:

        Due to my spinal condition I sometimes fail to make enough acid and my esophagus fails to close off. This can often produce acid erosion at night and foul smell during the day.
        Some of my clients have similar problems on my table. When the experience relief they demand one of my bottles. So now I will have to reorder.

        Not User Friendly

        Pros

        • Works as advertised

        Cons

        • Uneasy Feeling

        Best Uses

          Comments about Life Extension Esophageal Guardian, 60 chewable tablets:

          This product works, make no doubt about it. However, as you begin chewing the large tablet, the contents begin to foam such that it becomes difficult to swallow for me. After it goes down I was a bit concerned as there was an extremely full feeling such that I couldn't take anything else if I needed to. The full feeling subsided in about an hour. My hope would be that further testing be done to be sure it wasn't just my system reacting oddly.

                  Tried to chew the tablets after meals and just felt bloted after chewing. An interesting concept that I would still recommend people try to see if it is helpful for them.

                    Comments about Life Extension Esophageal Guardian, 60 chewable tablets:

                    This products works well but contains xylitol and mannitol which gives me gas and cramps. I wish Life Extension would reformulate the product without the sugar alcohols.
