Description

Progressive Health's Alocid is an all-natural supplement specially formulated to relieve acid reflux symptoms and support digestion. It features clinically evaluated ingredients known to support digestion and reduce GI (gastrointestinal) inflammation including orange peel extract, aloe vera extract, picrorhiza, deglycyrrhiznated licorice (DGL) and digestive enzymes. Alocid helps relieve and prevent acid reflux symptoms like heartburn, while supporting digestive tract health.

In Acid Reflux Disease or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) stomach acids back up into the esophagus, causing irritation and inflammation (esophagitis). This often leads to a burning pain or discomfort (heartburn) in the upper abdomen and chest. If left untreated, GERD can cause scarring and precancerous changes of the esophagus (Barrett's syndrome) that can progress into esophageal cancer.

Orange peel can help relieve heartburn and indigestion and prevent stomach cancer. Aloe vera can reduce secretion of stomach acid (similar to antacid drugs) and prevent stomach inflammation and digestive ulcers. Picorrhiza is a digestive tonic with a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine. Research suggests that it has anti-inflammatory benefits in the digestive tract and assists digestion. DGL has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. A clinical study shows that licorice treatment completely relieved acid reflux symptoms in 43% of patients. Digestive enzymes including protease, amylase and lipase assist digestion and help prevent heartburn.

Cons

Orange peel extract (Citrus aurantium) may cause photosensitivity (light sensitivity). Individuals should avoid bright light, including tanning booths, while taking citrus aurantium. The internal use may be unsafe and should only be used with expert guidance. Large amounts may cause intestinal colic, convulsions and death in children.

Taken internally, the constituent found in aloe, barbaloin, can produce a pronounced laxative effect. Although this is useful for the treatment of constipation, experts recommend that aloe should not be taken internally for more than ten consecutive days as it may lead to fluid loss and depletion of the body's electrolytes. An overdose may cause vomiting, intestinal spasms, kidney inflammation or bloody diarrhea.

Pregnant or lactating women and people with pre-existing medical conditions or taking medications should consult a physician before taking Alocid.

Be aware that some drugs may interact with the nutrients in Alocid including:
  • Gyburide
  • Aspirin
  • Digoxin
