In addition to ingredients that help balance pH, Acid Defense contains Stomach Soothe Enzyme Blend. This blend contains enzymes such as amylase, glucoamylase, lipase, alphagalactosidase, malt diastase, cellulase, sucrase, and lactase. The enzymes in Stomach Soothe Enzyme Blend support the digestion of a variety of carbohydrates and fats.

Maintaining a balanced pH is one of the most important metabolic functions your body performs, aside from breathing and maintaining a heartbeat. Production of highly acidic gastric juice is a normal function of the stomach. Occasional heartburn represents an imbalance in the distribution of digestive system content. According to the American Gastrointestinal Association, about 40 million people experience heartburn at least once per week and roughly 40% of people have heartburn at least once a month. Acid Defense provides alkalizing minerals from goats milk whey, along with organically grown vegetable juice concentrates. These natural food sources help your body to maintain comfortable pH levels.* Additionally, the enzymes in Acid Defense work to support healthy digestion.
