Provides relief for occasional heartburn and indigestion.*
Occasional heartburn after a meal is often a symptom of impaired digestion due to lifestyle and poor dietary choices. A deficiency in the natural production of digestive enzymes may be an underlying cause of gastrointestinal complaints including occasional heartburn.
Acid Calm™ supports those who experience occasional heartburn by helping to better digest problem foods, while also providing long-term support for the function of the GI system.* Zinc carnosine is included to optimize the mucosal lining of the stomach, acting as a buffer to gastric acid.*
The National Institutes of Health estimate that 60 million Americans experience a burning sensation in the chest or acid taste in their throats at least once a month.1 Occasional heartburn is a digestive problem that may occur when stomach acid comes into contact with the lining of the esophagus, causing irritation.
Most people suffer from heartburn occasionally, usually after a meal. Although commonly attributed to excessive acid production, occasional heartburn is often a symptom of impaired digestion as a result of factors including lifestyle, diet and genetics.

Marshmallow Root (althaea officinalis r.) is a well-known demulcent for soothing irritated membranes.* The mucilaginous (adhesive) properties found in marshmallow root can have a soothing effect on the irritated mucosal tissue due to its cooling properties. *
Papaya leaf naturally contains the proteolytic enzyme papain, which has shown clear benefit for symptoms of occasional heartburn.*
Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) has powerful antioxidant properties.* It can also help improve the digestive and circulatory system by strengthening the walls of the intestinal tract.*
Amylase Thera-blend™ contains multiple strains of enzymes responsible for breaking down carbohydrates, such as starch and glycogen, into smaller sugars.
Zinc carnosine is a combination of the trace mineral zinc and the amino acid compound L-carnosine, and is a potent antioxidant. It helps strengthen the mucosal lining of the stomach, acting as a buffer to gastric acid.*
Cellulase Thera-blend™ contains multiple strains of cellulase for digesting dietary fiber. Cellulase is the only digestive enzyme our body does not produce.
Lipase Thera-blend™ contains multiple strains of lipase enzymes for catalyzing lipids to form fatty acids and glycerol.
1 capsule at the end of a meal to calm digestive discomfort.*
Supportive nutrients specific to the gastrointestinal region
While many products are formulated to address symptoms, Acid Calm contains natural enzymes that work with your body to soothe indigestion and enhance your body’s natural digestive process.*
Enzymes produced by the human digestive system play a vital role in overall health. They ensure proper breakdown, absorption and utilization of nutrients from the foods we eat. A deficiency in our natural production of digestive enzymes can be an underlying cause of gastrointestinal complaints, including occasional heartburn and acid refux.*
Acid Calm contains vegetarian enzymes and botanicals to support digestion and soothe symptoms associated with gastrointestinal (GI) distress.* Acid Calm contains amylase, lipase and cellulase Thera-blend™ enzymes to enhance carbohydrate, fat and fiber digestion.*
Marshmallow Root has a high protein and mucilage-carbohydrate content the body can use to manufacture the necessary materials for new tissue production. Marshmallow also has mucilaginous (adhesive) properties enabling it to surround and expel foreign and toxic matter, and providing a soothing effect on inflamed mucosal membrane tissue.* Marshmallow has been known to relieve irritation and inflammation of the mucous membranes of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts and to help normalize mucous secretions. *2
Papaya leaf naturally contains proteolyic (protein-digesting) enzymes and has been studied for its soothing benefits and cleansing activity within the GI tract. It has been known to support healthy inflammation and natural activity in the removal of improper proteins, promoting less stress on the body’s natural digestive processes.*
Herbal ingredients like Gotu Kola, provide additional support for soothing discomfort.* Gotu Kola is uncommonly rich in B vitamins and potassium and is used as a natural diuretic.* Zinc carnosine is a combination of the trace mineral zinc and L-carnosine. Zinc carnosine is a potent antioxidant, promoting a healthy inflammatory response
in the gut.* It provides soothing support to the digestive tract, strengthening
the mucosal lining of the stomach and acting as a buffer to gastric acid.* Each
one capsule serving of Acid Calm provides 10 mg of zinc carnosine. According
to a recent clinical trial, researchers reported beneficial effects of zinc carnosine
on gut integrity and repair with standard dosages of 37.5 mg.3
