EpisolveGI ia a dietary supplement that helps to alleviate acid reflux disease symptoms, also known as GERD. EpisolveGI is a naturally enhanced antacid. It is made of calcium carbonate and Vitamin E, and is naturally enhanced using extra virgin olive oil</em>. Olive oil has been used as a natural cure or remedy for different disease ailments in many parts of the world and has been in the folklore of many Mediterranean cultures as a natural remedy for acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gastritis, gastric ulcers, and indigestion. EpisolveGI acts as a medium acting antacid. It reduces the acid load on the esophageal gastric junction and protects the mucosa by creating a barrier between the mucosa and the stomach acid. The calcium carbonate neutralizes the acid while the olive oil floats to the top of the stomach(the GE junction). The olive oil is hydrophobic (afraid of water) and sticks to the lining of the esophagus (mucosa) preferentially more than water. Hence, it reduces the injury and burning of the esophageal mucosa by partially isolating the tissue from the acid re-fluxing back from the stomach.
EpisolveGI comes in a rapid release capsule for acid reflux and heartburn relief. EpisolveGI, as a supplement, should be taken during the time of day or night when symptoms are known to the consumer to be at their worst. Therefore, it can be used as preventive measure or supplement such as after dinner and before sleep to alleviate overnight acid reflux and morning acid mouth sensation. It can also be taken at the end of a high protein meal known to worsen GERD. The usual dose is 2-4 capsules per meal. Additional doses can be taken, but should not exceed 12 capsules per day. EpisolveGI is a dietary supplement and, as the name implies, is a supplement to health products and traditional medicine. It is not meant to replace traditional treatment and medications such as proton pump inhibitors. However, it is commonly known that 40% of patient do not achieve complete relief with proton pump inhibitors and are looking for other options. EpisolveGI is the solution.
