Zinc a boon for immunity and reflux

The solution to painful acid reflux may lie in something as simple as zinc. Yale School of Medicine reports that zinc salts can effectively treat gastric reflux. In some patients, it may work within seconds. Researchers first studied lab rats and discovered the zinc worked. Then they tested it on healthy human study participants. No side effects were reported. The report, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, indicated nearly 50 million Americans suffer from acid reflux.

Bonnie - for years, we have used zinc carnosine for reflux as well as H. Pylori.
