  • Positively pH-friendly digestive support

  • Made with effective herbs and enzymes

  • Helps alkalize your body naturally

Introducing a new approach to digestive health and comfort. New Gastric Essentials from Swanson Condition Specific Formulas relies not on common acid-fighting ingredients like calcium carbonate but rather the natural alkalizing effect of select herbs that provide further comfort. Every herb in Gastric Essentials is known to be alkalizing, meaning it has a pH greater than 7, but each has its own distinct nutritive benefits beyond simple alkalization.

Slippery elm, marshmallow, licorice and meadowsweet have a soothing, demulcent action on the stomach lining. Goldenseal and dandelion help defend the gastric environment. Ginger, prickly ash and angelica contain phytonutrients that stimulate the digestive process and support the mucosal lining. To this special blend of time-honored herbs we add betaine HCl and protease 4.5 to balance the alkalizing action and provide direct digestive support.

If you suffer from occasional digestive distress and acid discomfort, try this new, systemic approach to settling your stomach. Just one capsule before meals provides neutralizing gastric nourishing balanced with digestive enzymes to help you get the most from your foods while taming the acid environment before trouble can begin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good formula for indigestion I take these with my probiotics for gas, acidic system and indigestion. They seem to help me but everyone has a different digestive system. Just have to find out what works as individuals. August 20, 2016
