Diamond Nutritionals’ Stomach Support Formula is intended to help support the stomach and gastrointestinal tract during a possible Helicobacter pylori infection.
Helicobacter pylori is an organism which is known to play a large role in the development of ulcers. The CDC estimates that approximately 2/3 of the world’s population has a H. pylori infection. While some will never show any signs of the infection, others may develop GI upset, gastric ulcers, or duodenal ulcers. There are many natural ingredients that have been studied for their beneficial effects on H. pylori related infections.
Zinc carnosine is a zinc complex of l-carnosine. It has been approved as a drug in Japan since 1994 for its use in stomach disorders such as ulcers, dyspepsia, and infections with H. pylori. There are several studies showing the beneficial anti-H. pylori effects of zinc carnosine in patients with a H.pylori infection. Studies also show zinc carnosine has a strong ability to support the gastric mucosa and initiate healing.
Mastic gum has traditionally been used to protect the stomach lining, especially related to gastric ulcers. Studies show mastic gum inhibits the growth of, and kills, H. pylori.
Bismuth has been used with antibiotic therapies to reduce H. pylori growth. It is widely used in anti-H. pylori protocols for its soothing actions on the gastric and mucosal linings.
Berberine sulfate has well studied anti-bacterial properties. Studies show plant extracts containing berberine have strong anti-H. pylori activity.
