What is the benefit of alginic acid?
When alginic acid comes into contact with gastric acids, alginic acid forms a gel shown to relieve gastric discomfort in clinical studies.
Why did we add potassium bicarbonate?
When combined with alginic acid, potassium bicarbonate forms a temporary foam barrier between the stomach and the esophagus.
Alginic Acid and Potassium Bicarbonate
When Esophageal Guardian’s alginic acid and potassium bicarbonate come into contact with gastric acids, they form a bubble-filled gel. This creates a temporary foam layer on top of your stomach contents. This barrier helps protect esophageal tissue, providing relief in less than one minute and lasting up to 4 hours.
Gastroesophageal upset is very common and can have a significant impact on quality of life, and data indicate that its prevalence is on the rise.1,2 According to a systematic review of the scientific literature, 18 to 28 percent of the U.S. population experiences some form of gastric distress.3
When alginic acid and potassium bicarbonate in Esophageal Guardian come into contact with gastric acids, alginic acid forms a gel, and potassium bicarbonate produces bubbles, which are then trapped in that gel. This protective, temporary foam barrier (or raft) between the stomach and the esophagus.4,5 This helps protect your esophageal tissue from harsh stomach acids: alginate-raft formulations have been shown to relieve gastric discomfort in clinical studies.6,7
