Pepzin GI is a unique supplement for irritated stomach lining.

Dan MurrayMany people suffer with stomach problems. There are numerous digestive issues and many different natural ways to address those issues. Most visitors to this podcast will know about digestive enzymes and probiotics. Those are important supplements. In this interview with Dan Murray, you will learn about a unique supplement for your stomach, that is unlike any other.

Pepzin GI is the trademarked name for zinc-carnosine. Zinc-carnosine has been used in Japan as a pharmaceutical product since 1994. In the U.S. it is sold as Pepzin GI. Pepzin GI has dozens or research studies and more than 12 years of human experience.

Pepzin GI supports the mucosal lining of the stomach and GI track. This mucosal lining is the body’s natural defense against the strong stomach acid. Current medical practice is to prescribe acid blocking drugs to relieve symptoms. This has several negative consequences. It does not fix the problem. Drugs will provide relief but you are no closer to a solution for the problem. Many others who regularly use pain medicine such as aspirin, ibuprofen or prescription pain relievers have stomach irritation as a common side effect.

Pepzin GI helps to support the natural mucosal lining. It can provide wonderful relief for occasional heartburn, acid indigestion, gas and nausea. A healthy mucosal lining can inhibit harmful bacteria associated with stomach irritation. Pepzin GI has potent tissue healing properties. If you have stomach issues related to irritation or ulcers, you should try Pepzin GI. I don’t know of anything else like it, that has these unique properties.

One study showed that heartburn was improved by 85% in only 14 days and was gone completely in over 60% of the participants. For more information go to PepzinGI.com.

Dan Murray is the VP of Business Development at Xsto Solutions. Xsto’s main focus is to bring science supported nutritional ingredients to U.S such as Pepzin GI and NiaXtend.

Does one take Pepzin GI between meals on an empty stomach or with food? Can it be taken eith medication like Zantac?

Follow label directions. It should be OK with Zantac as far as I know. You could research that further. Try to contact the manufacturer and ask them.

I am a 51 y/o woman who had arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery ~3 weeks ago. The surgeon reported having found excessive inflammation, and prescribed a 15 day course of prednisone followed by 30 days naproxen. I have developed stomach pain with NSAIDs in the past, and as I suspected I would, I had stomach pain the first day of naproxin, despite taking omeprazole & eating prior to taking it. I haven’t taken the naproxin for two days, and am taking two omeprazoles -AM & PM-hoping I can heal the lining & then resume naproxin. Would your product help? Please advise. I’m worried about thie inflammation, but don’t want a bleeding ulcer. Thanks.

I would recommend a therapeutic dose of omega-3 to help reduce chronic inflammation. Curcumin extracts can mitigate pain. PepzinGI can help protect the stomach lining. Digestive Enzymes designed for over acid stomach can be very helpful.

FYI: This is not our product. We do not sell products or link to selling sites. I recommend you visit an independent health food store where the owners know about good nutrition.

Good luck and best wishes.

Hi, I used pepzin gi in 1st june for the first time. I felt burning sensation in my tummy then. So I stopped it and kept it at dry place. But I want to use it again now.
I realize that it has been 3 month now. Could I use it again(the bottle has already opened). Or I should buy another one?

It should be fine to use. Good luck.

Hi Steve sorry to bother you again!! Like I said earlier ive been off ppi and now using pepzin gi for the past 8 months and its been great!! Lately ive been suffering from dry throat and irritation so I went to an ENT Dr and after examining he said I’m suffering from acid reflux and that I should take ppi for 2 weeks. Need your opinion

Two weeks is an appropriate time frame for a ppi. It may help calm down the irritation. See if it helps. I would consider other options if it goes beyond two weeks. Good luck.

Hi Steve

I’ve been on Dr Best pepzin gi for the past 6 months and it has totally replaced my ppi medication. Should I stop taking it or continue. Please advise . THanks

You can keep taking it as it is helping you. You can try to taper down and see what happens. If you taper down to none and stay good, then it would seem OK to stop. You may find that going down on dose eventually leads to a recurrence then go back to the effective dose.

Thank you Steve!! What you said exactly happened once I reduced my dose to one tablet a day I felt slight acidity sometimes. but is it safe to keep taking pepzin gi because it works very well!!

I know of no reason why you can’t continue on PepzinGI at the dose that works best for you. Good luck and best wishes.

I am on my second bottle of Pepzin GI. It helps, but it definitely doesn’t get rid of my heartburn and gastritis, despite my bland (and boring) diet. I am taking, slippery elm, dgl, a probiotic and Monolaurin, so I am hoping it will continue to get better.

Look into a product called Heartburn Free by Enzymatic Therapy. https://www.enzymatictherapy.com/Products/Digestion/Occasional-Heartburn-and-Indigestion/09110-Heartburn-Freewith-ROH10.aspx

There is also Acid Soothe by Enzymedica. http://enzymedica.com/products/acid-soothe-heartburn-all-natural

You will likely need a variety of tools to get the best overall results. Nutrients like aloe vera juice and peppermint could be useful. Anti-acid supplements can neutralize acidity in the moment for quick relief. Keep on the Pepzin GI and add others one at a time to evaluate their benefits. Good luck.

Hey Johnathon,

I’d like to hear how your doing as I’m basically taking the same supplements as you are with a similar issue of either severe gerd or gastritis with a possible hiatal hernia. Will be getting an endoscopy in 2 weeks, but would love to get some feedback on how things are going….I know how bad the chest pain heartburn is

Can Pepzin GI be taken with a probiotic in the morning? Should the probiotic be taken with the meal and Pepzin GI after the meal?

Reply

18 Steve Lankford March 11, 2015 at 5:21 pm

As far as I know, you should be able to take them at the same time.

Hi

I was diagnosed with H Pylori which since treatment (2drugs and anti acid) a second test proved negative. Although I’m much better I still get some pain albeit usually mild but still not nice, and I’m waiting for the result of a barium meal
Would these tabs help? At the moment I’m taking Liquorice DLG 1-2 twice daily which don’t seem to be helping and I ‘ve also tried loads of other natural product , but not the above.
If indeed I have low stomach acid (many years ago I was told I had after 24hrs test) and don’t get heartburn but could they still help with the mild stomach pain?
Kind regards Carla

It is possible that Pepzin GI could help you. The only way to know is to try. There is another product by Enzymatic Therapy called Heartburn Free that may help. Good luck.

I have ordered a bottle of Pepzin Gi and I’m sure it will help with my gastritis but I haven’t read or see anywhere on how long to stay on your acid reducer pills while taking the Pepzin? I would like to know how long I need to keep taking the acid reducer pills and also how long I keep taking the Pepzin?

Thank you ahead of time for your quick response.

I am not your doctor so this is only my suggestion. After a week on Pepzin GI, try gradually reducing your dosage of the acid blocker. Cut it down by a third and see how you do. If that seems ok then try reducing by another third. If all goes well the try going without.
You could also do other things as well as the Pepzin GI. Take digestive enzymes with your meals. Try Aloe Vera juice (get a good one, not a cheap one, like Aloe Life.)
Also watch your foods and see if some are more bothersome.
You could try smaller meals more often.
These are just a few other lifestyle ideas that may help as well. Good Luck and best wishes.
