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 may exert pro-inflammatory effects in stomach tissue.
Protecting against known factors that damage the gastric lining is essential to ensuring optimal stomach health. CarnoSoothe with PicroProtect™ combines four remarkable nutrient compounds that naturally regulate the growth and damaging effects of H. pylori while protecting the health of the gastric lining.
The recommended daily dose of two capsules of CarnoSoothe supplies 50 milligrams of zinc L-carnosine. Scientific evidence indicates this novel chelated compound of zinc and L-carnosine works synergistically to support delicate stomach tissue.1-6 Zinc-carnosine has been shown to help with stomach inflammation and the effects of cytokine release associated with H. pylori.7, 8
Two capsules of CarnoSoothe also supply 500 milligrams of a standardized deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extract. Licorice extract reduces the formation of pro-inflammatory molecules, spurs the formation of prostaglandins that support healthy stomach mucosa, and contains gastroprotective flavonoid compounds. Licorice has also been shown to help regulate the growth of H. pylori.9-11
Picrorhiza kurroa, a traditional herb grown in the Himalayan Mountains, has been shown to help support a healthy stomach wall. Its extracts have potent antioxidative and immune-supporting properties, and play a role in gastric protection and healthy liver function.12-18
Lastly, the formula also supplies 750 milligrams of Nutri-Cran® GI, a patented blend of cranberry, blueberry, and grape seed extracts. Rich in proanthocyanidins and other antioxidant compounds, cranberry and other plant-based extracts, NutriCran® GI has been shown to be beneficial for gastrointestinal health.19,20 These compounds also help regulate H. pylori by preventing the organism from attaching itself to the stomach and intestinal lining.21, 22
