Acid Reflux is caused by reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus. In most people this is due to a transient relaxation of the sphincter that keeps the lower end of the esophagus closed when you are not swallowing food or liquids. The esophagus is not able to cope with acid as well as the stomach and is easily injured. It's the acid refluxing into the esophagus that produces the symptoms and potentially damages the esophagus.
The problem with prescription and surgical treatments is the sheer number and amounts of drugs needed to be taken. Additionally, the invasiveness to one's quality of life often outweighs the potential benefit. In fact, many patients who have had surgery (approximately 50%) will need to continue prescription drug treatments for acid reflux management. This further underscores the importance of early diagnosis, and addressing the disease by alternate means, namely nutritional supplementation.
Alocid contains clinically evaluated ingredients, known to support both esophageal health and the body's complex digestive process; thereby lessening the chance of developing the many discomforting symptoms associated with your reflux condition.
