Product Information Menu
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.

Most Liked Positive Review
This really works
I was surprised how well this works. I used to wake up every night with acid in my throat. This hasn't happened since I started using the product after supper.
Most Liked Negative Review
Works well, but too much gas
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.

Comments about Life Extension Esophageal Guardian, 60 chewable tablets:
I was dubious about the product, but it does alleviate the after-eating distress I sometimes experience.I was taking the recommended 2 tabs, but I think I will try reducing to one and see how that works. If you don't chew it and swallow it immediately, it does start to foam a bit in your mouth. I notice a little "puff" of something when I first bite into it, too. It's not offensive, just noticeable. The taste isn't bad, either.I use it with large meals; I don't necessarily use it daily. But when my stomach is feeling crabby, it really does help. I wouldn't stop using any of my other meds or measures for my GI issues... but this is a very useful adjunct in my case.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Shortage by client demand
from Longbranch, WA
See all my reviews
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
from Austin, Texas
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Sorry, but it didn't work!
from Redding, CA
Tried the product according to directions . It did not work for my wife because it formed a block before she could swallow it.

You will need to have a glassful of water ready immediately after chewing in order to effectivly swallow the product.

Didn't help with my reflux
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.
