Natural Berry Flavor
•Supports Gastro-Esophageal Health*
Nearly 60% of adult Americans suffer some form of gastroesophageal upset and find little relief in commercial remedies.
Fortunately, a unique compound known as raft-forming alginate produces a temporary physical barrier between the stomach and the esophagus, helping to protect the delicate esophageal tissue from harsh stomach acids.
A unique blend of ingredients in Life Extension Esophageal Guardian Natural Berry Flavor, including
- alginic acid and
- potassium bicarbonate
produces both a gel and bubbles to form a safe, protective floating foam layer that sits above the contents of the stomach.
Two minerals, calcium and magnesium, react with the stomach acid to neutralize it.
This barrier develops in under a minute, yet relief lasts up to four hours!

Natural Berry Flavor
- Supports Gastro-Esophageal Health*
- Unique approach to protecting esophageal tissue against harsh stomach acids*
Many individuals have tried a host of remedies in an attempt to soothe their digestive tracts, but some still have an issue with gastric distress(1-4)—with resulting discomfort along the delicate lining of the esophagus.
A novel solution is now available in the form of what scientists call raft-forming alginate. This blend of all-natural ingredients in Esophageal Guardian provides a totally unique approach to protecting esophageal tissue against harsh stomach acids.
The mechanism behind Esophageal Guardian
The mechanism involves the formation of a temporary physical barrier—or raft—between the stomach and the esophagus.(5)
The secret to this technology is what happens when alginic acid and potassium bicarbonate come into contact with gastric acids.
Alginic acid forms a gel and potassium bicarbonate produces bubbles that get trapped in that gel—producing a floating foam layer that sits above the contents of the stomach.(5)
Immediately, two other natural ingredients in this formulation— calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate—react with the stomach acid to create lift in the foam and make it firmer.(5)
Clinical studies show that this temporary foam barrier provides maximum support for delicate esophageal tissues.(5,6) Also, the carbonate and bicarbonate in these ingredients help neutralize stomach acid.5
This protective foam barrier develops less than a minute after two natural berry flavor tablets of Esophageal Guardian are chewed and swallowed.
Yet the relief it provides lasts up to 4 hours.(5) Quite simply, Esophageal Guardian Natural Berry Flavor delivers the fastest-acting, longest-lasting, and most advanced technology available to support delicate esophageal and stomach tissues against gastric distress.
