Integrative TherapeuticsTM delivers the PepZinGI brand Zinc-Carnosine to protect and stabilize the gastric and intestinal mucosal lining, support a healthy gastric microbial balance, and help relieve mild gastric discomforts, such as occasional heartburn, nausea, bloating, and upset stomach.* Its gastro-supportive benefits have been demonstrated in over 20 published studies.* This unique ingredient combines L-carnosine, a combination of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine, with elemental zinc. Zinc-Carnosine is unique in that it supports the natural protective mechanisms in the gastrointestinal tract without suppressing stomach acid or otherwise interfering in the normal digestive process.* The efficacy of Zinc-Carnosine has been demonstrated in numerous published, controlled clinical trials in humans.
