What is PepZin GI?

PepZin GI™ is a specific chelate of zinc that has been the subject of over 100 scientific studies, including at least 38 clinical trials, for its role in supporting stomach health. Research suggests it helps modulate the growth of Helicobacter pylori and promotes healing of the stomach lining. It also has been clinically demonstrated to relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as:

✔ Heartburn

✔ Nausea

✔ Upset stomach

✔ Belching

✔ Bloating

✔ Loss of appetite

✔ Diarrhea

Who would benefit from PepZin GI™?

For example, with as many as 25% to 40% of Americans suffering from occasional indigestion, millions of individuals could potentially benefit from the stomach-supporting properties of PepZin GI™.

How does it work?

PepZin GI™ dissolves rapidly and absorbs easily in the stomach. It appears to adhere directly to wound sites of the stomach and exerts tissue-supportive effects, such as:

  • Modulating the growth of H. Pylori
  • Protecting the stomach lining by stimulating mucus secretion
  • Protecting the integrity of stomach cells through antioxidant properties
  • Attenuating stomach inflammation by inhibiting cytokine expression

What makes Pepzin GI™ unique?

Unlike some conventional products, PepZin GI™ provides relief of indigestion without suppressing stomach acid and possibly impacting digestive function. Different from some competitive nutritional supplements, PepZin GI™, a zinc L-carnosine complex, has also been shown to be three times more effective than zinc sulfate and L-carnosine alone.

Is it safe?

In human studies, PepZin GI™ has been shown to have an excellent safety profile.

Its New Dietary Ingredient status is confirmed by the US’s Food and Drug Administration (US-FDA). Its Complementary Medicine status, whose category is shared with traditional medicine, is confirmed by Australia’s Therapeutics Good Administration (TGA). Its efficacy as an active substance is confirmed by the Korean’s Food and Drug Administration (K-FDA) and Japan’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA).

Does it have side effects?

As a zinc supplement, its use is limited by safety regulations on daily zinc intake, which is about 40 mg per day for most countries. A daily intake of 150 mg PepZin GI™ is equivalent to 34 mg zinc.

Results of clinical trials have shown PepZin GI™ does not carry significant adverse effects at the recommended daily intake. Also, it has no known interactions with other supplements or prescriptions drugs but consult with your health practitioner before starting on PepZin GI™ if you have concerns.

What is its recommended daily intake?

For Americans, the recommended daily intake is 37.5 mg twice daily (75 mg per day). For non-Americans, the recommended daily intake is 75 mg twice daily (150 mg per day). There is no benefit at taking 300 mg per day.

Who should take PepZin GI™ under medical supervision?

Due to the lack of human trials, PepZin GI™ cannot be recommended in children under 12, pregnant women and lactating women. In the elderly, the maximum daily intake should be reduced to less than 100 mg because of reduced digestive functions.

Those with poor livers or with copper-defiency should not take PepZin GI™ unless supervised by their medical practitioners.

Does it interfere with antibiotic therapy?

Actually, PepZin GI™ has been scientifically shown to enhance the benefits of antibiotic therapy in H. Pylori eradication.
