Hi, Nicole here…and I have no idea what’s happening to me right now…
I’m practically sitting in a puddle of my own juices…
My heart is racing…
And I’m feeling a slow ache down there…it’s pulsing like it has a heartbeat of its own…
This safe amino acid naturally reverses GERD and acid reflux
GERD – gastro-oesophageal reflux disease – or “acid reflux”…
…is a common problem where the contents of the stomach rise up into the esophagus – the tube connecting the stomach to the mouth.
The contents of the stomach are far too acidic for the esophagus and they cause all sorts of problems that many people are familiar with.
There are numerous treatments which are effective in treating the symptoms of GERD – but they all come with worrying side-effects.
What many people do not know is that there is a safe amino acid supplement which can minimize the effects of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.
The animal experiment was carried out at Kyoto Pharmaceutical University in Japan. The paper was published in Medical Science Monitor.
GERD is caused by the acidic contents of the stomach burning the interior lining (mucosa) of the esophagus.
“Reflux esophagitis is caused mainly by excessive exposure of the mucosa to gastric contents.”
The authors of this paper were curious about how exactly GERD occurs.
They used some amino acids (building blocks of proteins) to test some of their theories about the mechanisms of action of gastric reflux.
“In the present study, we examined the effect of several amino acids on acid reflux esophagitis in rats.”
To cause gastric reflux, they carried out some surgical procedures on rats.
“GERD was induced by ligating both the pylorus and the transitional region between the forestomach and the corpus under ether anesthesia.”
They used treatments to minimize the effects of this GERD – proving that it does accurately mimic the real illness.
“The severity of esophagitis was reduced by the oral administration of omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor, or pepstatin, a specific pepsin inhibitor.”
Different groups of rats were given different amino acids including arginine and glycine.
These are both commonly used as supplements.
Arginine is used by bodybuilders to “increase the pump” – and make their veins pop.
Glycine is used to lower inflammation, heal the gut and help with sleep.
The researchers found that both of these amino acid supplements were effective at decreasing the effects of GERD.
“The development of esophageal lesions was dose-dependently prevented by L-arginine and glycine, given after the ligation.”
Of these 2, I would be more comfortable taking glycine.
I would not take arginine except in extreme circumstances as it can cause other problems.
The researchers found that another couple of amino acids accelerated the effects of GERD.
These are also common supplements – particularly glutamine, which is thought to help to heal the gut! Yikes.
“By contrast, both L-alanine and L-glutamine aggravated these lesions in a dose-dependent manner.”
The research confirmed some of the theories of the authors about the mechanisms involved in acid reflux.
“The results confirmed an essential role for acid and pepsin in the pathogenesis of acid reflux esophagitis in the rat model and further suggested that various amino acids affect the severity of esophagitis in different ways.”
More importantly, it points out that the anti-inflammatory supplement glycine may be of use for people who suffer with this condition.
We also now know that alanine and glutamine can potentially increase gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.
“L-alanine and L-glutamine exert a deleterious effect on the esophagitis, while L-arginine and glycine are highly protective, independent of endogenous prostaglandins and nitric oxide.”
Glycine can be obtained from foods like gelatin and collagen. It is also available as a pure supplement too.
I would try the food-based sources of glycine first.
Has your doctor told you how to keep dangerous blood fat out of your bloodstream?
Probably he has not.
And yet blood fat is the most toxic and dangerous threat to our health that we face today…
…according to over 3,000 studies that the pharmaceutical corporations pray you don’t see.
So here’s a medical mystery for you…
The mystery is, why aren’t we being warned about blood fat?
Luckily, I have invested thousands of hours into deep research and testing that finally led to a simple activity on how to get rid of blood fat.
The activity works by burning the blood fat that’s inside your cells, without dumping the fat into your bloodstream.
This is the ONLY way to burn fat without creating dangerous blood fat.
