I discovered a new product for acid reflux. I was dubious about it, because it's marketed by Life Extension™, and all their otherwise good articles plug their products shamelessly. I usually veer away from such sites.

However. I did break down and try this one. It's called "Esophageal Guardian™", and it seems pretty much benign other than the intended use. The active ingredients are ellagic and alginic acids. They're big chewable tablets, and you take them after your largest meal of the day, followed by at least 8 oz of water. The idea is that they create a stabilized foam on the surface of your stomach contents which is prevented from refluxing back into your esophagus. I've used it 3 - 4 times now, and it does seem to work. I don't use it *instead* of any of the other management techniques I use... but it seems to be a useful adjunct.

You can look it up by product name (I think I got mine through Amazon). You can also probably (?) see the article about it on the Life Extension™ website. They have a lot of info there... I'd just be sure to cross-reference it well before jumping on it. So far I've found no discrepancies, but marketing tactics do raise skepticism for me.

It might be worthwhile for those of you with intractable reflux despite other therapies.
