CarnoSoothe with PicroProtect™
60 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number: 1258

An estimated 20 million Americans suffer stomach discomfort caused by erosion of the protective mucosal lining. A healthy mucosal lining is required to prevent acidic digestive juices from corroding the stomach wall. The presence of the Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori) bacterium exerts pro-inflammatory effects in stomach tissue, further exacerbating stomach discomfort.

Protecting against known factors that damage the gastric lining is essential to ensuring optimal stomach health. CarnoSoothe combines remarkable nutrient compounds that may naturally inhibit the growth and damaging effects of H. pylori while protecting and restoring the health of the gastric lining.*

The recommended daily dose of two capsules of CarnoSoothe supplies 50 milligrams of PepZin GI® zinc L-carnosine. This novel chelated compound of zinc and L-carnosine works synergistically to support delicate stomach tissue while exerting inhibitory effects against H.pylori.1 In combined human clinical trials, 70 percent of patients reported that the chelated zinc-carnosine compound relieved symptoms of stomach discomfort, while 65 percent demonstrated visible evidence of healing in gastrointestinal imaging tests.1

CarnoSoothe also contains 500 milligrams of a standardized deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extract per daily dose. Licorice extract inhibits proinflammatory molecules, spurs the formation of prostaglandins that support health stomach tissue, and contains flavonoid compounds that can block the growth of even antibiotic-resistant strains of H. pylori.2-5

The recommended dose additionally supplies 750 milligrams of NutriCran® GI, a patented blend of cranberry, blueberry, and grape seed extracts. Rich in proanthocyanidins and other antioxidant compounds, cranberry and other plant-based extracts have been shown to retard the growth of H. pylori via several mechanism.6-7

The newly added Picrorhiza kurroa extract offers additional help in maintaining gastric health. Picrorhiza is a traditional Indian Ayurvedic herb grown in the Himalayan Mountains that has been used for liver and digestive health for thousands of years. The root stems (rhizomes) are used to make an extract rich in bitter principles. These glucoside compounds include kutkoside (also called kutkin), picroside, rosin, and apocynin. Research shows that Picrorhiza may help speed up gastric healing.8
