PEPTEAL™ is a unique herbal formula designed to stimulate repair of mucus membranes of the stomach and intestinal tract and protect against stomach acid induced heartburn.
Deglycchirizinated Licorice (DGL) is a special form of Licorice root from which the glycyrrhetinic acid has been reduced to prevent the potential for aldosterone stimulaiton and potassium loss that can occur with high doses of Licorice root.
DGL enhances the quality and the quantity of the protective substances that line the intestinal tract, increases the life span of the intestinal cells and improves blood flow to the intestinal lining. Several head-to-head comparisons have shown that DGL is more effective in the treatment of gastric and intestinal ulcers than Tagamet, Zantac, or antiacids and has far fewer relapses. It has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of canker sores.
Aloe vera inhibits the excessive release of Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) by interfering with the binding of histamine that can stimulate too much acid production. Aloe also slows down gastric emptying and could consequently lead to improved digestion. Regular Aloe vera consumption has been shown to improve protein digestion and assimilation and decrease bacterial putrefaction.
Quercetin possesses significant anti-inflammatory activity by directly inhibiting the manufacture and release of histamine that can cause excessive HCl production, as well as other allergic and inflammatory chemicals. It also exerts a potent antioxidant action and possesses vitamin C sparing activity.
As a dietary supplement, take one or two capsules, two to three times daily, as needed, or as directed by your health care provider.
