Many studies indicate that 500-1000 mg of d-limonene a day for 20 days assists the body in reducing the symptoms of GERD and heartburn. Our NoGERD consists of 300 mg of d-limonene per capsule and also adds 50 mg of Licorice Root Extract which emerging science suggests is beneficial for GERD and heartburn as well.
Reports of acid reflux experienced at least once a week have increased by 47% in the last decade. The prevalence of any acid reflux symptoms rose 30%, while the more severe symptoms rose by 24%. There is concern that these findings will lead to an increase in cancer of the esophagus, a once rare but now more common malignancy that is very difficult to treat. Acid reflux, also known as gastro-esophageal reflux, is where the stomach contents (food and acidic digestive juices) escape upward into the esophagus. This can irritate the esophagus and cause heartburn and other symptoms. Being overweight is a risk factor for acid reflux.

In addition, a new study says the drugs many take for acid reflux and excess stomach acid may be worse for you than the disease itself.
In fact, stomach acid drugs have now been linked to an early death.
The study, published in a recent edition of the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, concludes that stomach acid plays a crucial role in stopping infections in the body.
According to Fox News, “medications that suppress the production of stomach acid… make people more susceptible to complications of gastrointestinal infections, including raising the risk of dying.“
If GERD or heartburn is a recurring issue in your life, you may want to consider NoGERD with d-limonene to assist your body naturally. It is a much better alternative to the terrible side effects associated with drugs used to treat this all too common condition.
