Customer Reviews...

..."I have suffered with Gastritis for a few years now, and have tried several different perscriptions, they work for awhile then I have to find a new one. My natural medicine doctor told me about how zinc/L-carnosine helps to heal the lining of the stomach, not just shut the pump off! The Doctors Best PepZinGI is working very good, and I am feeling better everyday. Will order this again!!!"

PepZin Gl is a complex of the mineral zinc and L-carnosine. PepZin GI was developed in Japan and has been in widespread use there since 1994. Research on PepZin GI has found that it is extremely beneficial in supporting healthy gastric function. PepZin GI acts by supporting the integrity of stomach cells and may exert free-radical scavenging activity, inhibiting the expression of certain cytokines. PepZin GI also promotes healthy mucus secretions from stomach cells while maintaining a healthy bacterial balance in the GI tract.

Helps relieve occasional gastric discomfort.

Maintains a healthy GI environment.

Supports the health of gastric cells.

Suggested Use

From Wisconsin

great supplement for stomach/ulcer problems.

 Mr.L.W.A.Bogers

By L.W.A. Bogers From Netherlands

Pepzin has stopped my pep ulcers! Formidable!

 Very satisfied

From Iowa

I ordered these half-hoping they might help my husband and I with stomach irritation from foods and anti-inflammatory medications. I did a little research first on PubMed, but I'm always skeptical. We always seem to be chewing Tums and Rolaids and taking Maalox despite a healthy diet. After just a couple weeks I realized that our antacid consumption is greatly reduced. I have eaten foods that bother my stomach (such as tomatoes) with no discomfort. Very pleased indeed.

I had severe problems with my stomach, after one week using PepZinGi, the relief was amazing! Good product.

 Heals your stomach

From Maine

PepZinGi really works to heal your stomach. I take an anti inflammatory every day which can really mess up your stomach. I have been taking PeZinGi for a couple of years and hope it never goes off the market. I don't have any stomach problems ever since I began taking this product. It takes a few weeks, of consistent use, to heal up your stomach and then a maintenance dose. This is a miracle product.

Scientific Evidence

 

 

Benefits

Helps Relieve Occasional Gastric Discomfort.*

 

Clinical Trials

 

In a randomized, multi-center, comparative double-blind study, 299 patients suffering with symptoms of gastric discomfort were randomly allocated to receive either a zinc- L-carnosine complex or a placebo, or a control drug or its placebo for 8 weeks.

Improvement ratings for a range of symptoms were taken at various points during the trial and compared with before treatment data. Of the 258 people who completed the trial, 136 were in the zinc-L carnosine group. Of the group, 92% of the participants were rated as moderately improved or better on an improvement scale across the category of symptoms including heartburn, tenderness, epigastric pain, diarrhea and constipation after 8 weeks.

 

In another study, 28 patients with gastric discomfort were given a zinc-L-carnosine compound and monitored for 8 weeks. Improvement was rated on a scale of subjective and objective symptoms. After 4 weeks, the rate of those cases that were considered to be significantly improved was 68.4%. After eight weeks, the significantly improved number was 68.8%. Over 60% of these patients remained in the significantly improved category well after discontinuation of the treatment, suggesting a lasting effect of

the zinc-L-carnosine compound beyond the time it is taken.4

 

Maintains a Healthy GI Environment.*

 

The mineral zinc in PepZin GI is a critical component to a number of physiological processes in our bodies. Some of these functions include growth and metabolism of cells, healing of wounds, and maintenance of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.

PepZin GI may also be able to favorably maintain the bacterial balance of the stomach and GI tract. Studies suggest that the zinc-L-carnosine compound may have effects on certain strains of harmful bacteria and, therefore, may be able to help maintain a GI environment that is favorable to health.1 By supporting the bacterial balance in the stomach, PepZin GIcan help maintain a healthy mucosal lining.

 

Supports the Health of Gastric Cells.*

 

PepZin GI has been studied for its ability to prevent free radical damage to gastric cells. In one such study, rat gastric cells were exposed to ethanol and hydrogen peroxide, two substances known to cause free radical damage to living cells. Cells were bathed in hydrogen peroxide, ethanol, zinc-L-carnosine, or a combination of zinc-Lcarnosine with either ethanol or hydrogen peroxide.

While the cells bathed in ethanol and hydrogen peroxide solutions all exhibited signs of damage due to free radical production, the cells that were bathed in zinc-Lcarnosine were largely protected from the effects of free radical damage.

The authors concluded that the zinc compound directly protected gastric mucosal cells from oxidant stress and alcohol-induced damage.

 

Additional research further confirms the gastro-protective effects of PepZin GI.

In another rat study, stomach lesions were induced by administration of the chemical monochloramine, a known pro-oxidant (producer of free radicals). One of the groups of rats was fed the zinc-L-carnosine compound prior to being exposed to monochloramine.

 

The researchers found that the size of the lesions in the group pre-treated with zinc-L-carnosine was significantly less than the lesions in the control group.

The authors concluded that the zinc compound exerted a beneficial protective effect against monochloramine-induced stomach lesions.

The zinc-L-carnosine in PepZin GI has also been shown to slow the development of aspirin-induced stomach damage in rats. The researchers measurably detected lower levels of TNF-alpha in rats given zinc-L-carnosine as compared to the control rats. TNF-alpha is an inflammatory cytokine that is known to be released in response to gastric damage. 7

These results may suggest a role for PepZin GI in protecting gastric cells by occasionally reducing the levels of certain cytokines in minor inflammation of the stomach.
