Heartburn and heartburn? Gastric reflux? You can fight them with a chewing gum!
Are you also among the many who suffer from heartburn and stomach acidity? Gastric reflux and bad digestion won't give you a break?
The solution you were looking for is at hand! Thanks to NO ACID GUM, the latest novelty born from the experience of NTP BIOTECH, heartburn will be just a bad I remember!
But let's be clear.
What is heartburn?
As it is known, heartburn or gastric pyrosis is a painful sensation (from slight discomfort to real twinges) in the upper part of the abdomen. But beyond this, from the Greek "pyros" which means fire, this disorder is characterized by a very annoying and disabling burning sensation and pain, most often perceived by the esophagus, pharynx and throat.
What are the causes?
Numerous research reports that heartburn is due to an increased production of acids or to the weakening of the stomach wall, which takes the name of gastric mucosa.
The impairment of this system increases the acidity of the stomach leading to conditions such as gastric reflux, in which the return of acid from the stomach, usually limited and without discomfort, causes pain and possibly more serious complications.
The causes of heartburn can be multiple, and very often their nature is not pathological but linked to conditions of psycho-physical stress which usually occur after particularly stressful events. Irregular life rhythms, do-it-yourself diets, and being overweight can also lead to a recurrence of the malaise up to chronicity.
The same condition can affect particularly sensitive categories such as pregnant women, or subjects on therapy with certain drugs such as painkillers and anti-inflammatories. So.
What can be done to reduce the risk of heartburn? Useful advice
Lifestyle and diet are fundamental factors.
The lifestyle we lead is in fact clearly reflected on our stomach and on the entire digestive system.
It is therefore advisable to try to adopt virtuous behaviors and follow some simple adviceto avoid heartburn and stomach acid disorders:
Reduce, as far as possible, situations of particular stress;
Do not smoke;
Do not abuse alcohol and caffeine;
Exercise, at least half an hour a day;
Do not go to bed immediately after meals;
The other fundamental component to prevent or alleviate this disorder derives from the adoption of a healthy diet that favors the intake of light and easily digestible foods such as:
- seasonal fruit and vegetables,
- white meats,
- fibers, cereals and legumes,
- milk and yoghurt which, thanks to the presence of lactic ferments, promote good intestinal function and motility.
Added to this is the adoption of good general rules such as chewing slowly and adequately, consuming five meals a day in small portions and possibly in a comfortable environment that can promote relaxation and remove the stress that often accompanies days of work and which is detrimental to digestion.
If prevention and lifestyle aren't enough?
Are there any remedies to forget about this nuisance?
Up to now, anti-acid drugs have been used to combat heartburn since acidity is one of the most common causes of this ailment. In addition to these, in the battle against heartburn and hyperacidosis, food supplements have proved to be valid and precious allies. There are many formulations on the market in different pharmaceutical forms such as capsules, tablets or sachets. However, their intake often becomes difficult and impractical: just think of those people who find it difficult to swallow or have little time to stop during the day due to stressful and very tight life rhythms.
So what to do?
How to eliminate the acidity, the sense of heaviness and the difficulty when swallowing, often accompanied by nausea and vomiting, slow digestion and gastric reflux that characterize this annoying enemy?

NO ACID GUM: A VALID ALLY AGAINST STOMACH BURNING
Developed to counteract heartburn and promote the functionality of the digestive system, NO ACID GUM is a food supplement in chewing gum based on Calcium Carbonate , Magnesium hydroxide and dry extract of Mastic of Chiòs indicated for those who suffer from stomach acid, and safe even in pregnancy.
What are the properties of the active components of NO ACID GUM?Let's discover them together.
Calcium carbonate is an inorganic salt that acts against stomach hyperacidity.
It is used together with magnesium hydroxide as an antacid since both react with the hydrochloric acid produced by the stomach and neutralize it without, however, intervening on the mechanisms that regulate acid secretion. The internal environment of the stomach is physiologically characterized by a certain degree of acidity, because this condition is necessary for digestion to take place. Some specialized cells of the gastric mucosa (parietal cells) continuously secrete hydrochloric acid, increasing their activity
during meals until they reach the level of acidity indispensable for the functioning of digestive enzymes.
In order to preserve the mucosa from this strong acidity, other cells (mucipar cells) produce protective substances, which create a sort of barrier on its surface whose activity is regulated by a complex system of hormones and neurotransmitters.
When this delicate balance is upset, a condition known as 'acid stomach' is generated.
Calcium carbonate and magnesium hydroxide are bases that synergistically help neutralize stomach acid, restore the original balance, prevent gastric reflux and prevent the passage of hydrochloric acid into the duodenum.
Chios mastic is a white natural resin that is obtained from the bark of the mastic tree (P. lentiscus), a very widespread plant on the island of Chios, in Greece, from which it takes its name. Very rich in properties, this product is used in many sectors, from phytotherapeutic to cosmetics, passing through food use. The healing properties of the plant have been known since ancient times. They derive from the presence of various components in the resin itself: tannins, organic acids, triterpenic alcohols with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity1.
Chios Mastic, in addition to having a beneficial action on the oral cavity, is an excellent natural remedy for all common stomach ailments, thanks to its soothing action on the gastric mucosa and its rebalancing action against the excessive production of gastric juices .
It can therefore be used to quickly calm heartburn, but also to treat symptoms of reflux, gastritis, oesophagitis, heartburn and peptic ulcers.
This action seems to be carried out by linolenic and oleic acid, which form a protective layer on the stomach lining2.
The essential oils extracted from the mastic leaves also have an antibacterial and fungicidal activity on pathogenic bacteria in the intestine, such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus: the causes of the most common digestive system disorders3 ,4,5.
Thanks to the synergistic use of these active components, skilfully formulated by NTP BIOTECH, NO ACID GUM
