Clinical Benefits: Metagenics Gastro Aid
Multiple clinical trials have shown ingredients in Gastro Aid to be effective in the treatment of upper gastrointestinal symptoms such as indigestion and reflux:1,2,3 GutGard® Liquorice has been shown to significantly improve symptoms of non-specific dyspepsia.1,4 A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on 50 subjects with non-specific dyspepsia showed that, compared to placebo, patients experienced an average of 66% improvement in their Nepean index scores after taking 2.1 g of GutGard® Liquorice twice daily for 30 days.1
Another multi centre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on 106 subjects with non-specific dyspepsia showed 86% of participants experienced improvement in their symptoms after taking 500 mg of turmeric twice a day for seven days.3 Typical symptoms of non-specific dyspepsia includes upper abdominal pain, indigestion, belching, bloating, acid regurgitation (reflux) and heartburn.1
Demulcent activity to soothe mucus membranes:2 Liquorice has been traditionally used for its demulcent activity in Western herbal medicine.2 Liquorice may help to heal damaged gut mucosa by increasing local concentrations of prostaglandins that promote mucus production and cell proliferation in the stomach.4
Aid digestive function:7 Multiple ingredients in Gastro Aid support digestion, including improving gastric motility and bile production.5,6,7 Turmeric has been shown in in vitro and in vivo trials, to suppress gastric acid production and reduce gastric acid-induced damage via the inhibition of histamine 2 receptors.8 Fennel exerts its action by supporting gastric motility and globe artichoke supports bile acid production.5,7
