When I was younger, I suffered severe heartburn and ulcers, and I used to take a lot of antacids. Those antacids only helped for a short amount of time, and my symptoms came back within a few hours. I wish I had known what I know now.

It's important to understand what causes ulcers and gastritis. For the longest time, it was believed that ulcers were a result of too much stomach acid. However, recent scientific evidence found that Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is the leading cause of peptic ulcer formation.

While most people are exposed to these microbes, not everyone gets ulcers, as healthy stomach acid levels help destroy H. pylori and prevent infection and associated stomach issues.

Taking antacids or histamine blockers to manage gastritis can increase the risk of infection as these drugs lower the stomach’s acidity, creating a perfect environment for H. Pylori to thrive.

In contrast, zinc carnosine is a highly effective remedy that coats the stomach, increases stomach acid production, and stimulates the production of mucous lining the stomach wall.

Zinc is also a potent antibacterial agent, directly inhibiting the growth of H. pylori, which helps prevent and manage ulcers and gastritis.

Carnosine, on the other hand, is broken down and converted into superoxide dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant that lowers inflammation. This explains why zinc carnosine is one of the best supplements to promote intestinal health.

Consider taking 75 milligrams of zinc carnosine twice daily. Although zinc carnosine is highly effective, it doesn’t work immediately and should be taken for one to three months to see results. To find relief from stomach pain, natural remedies such as baking soda or liquid chlorophyll help soothe stomach irritation.

    Nattokinase Update: Since watching your video, I’ve started taking nattokinase. I’ve struggled with high blood pressure for over a decade and have consistently experienced poor circulation in my feet—so much so that they’ve always felt cold and appeared an unhealthy color. However, a few weeks ago, after spending a long day on my feet, I noticed a significant change. Despite feeling like I needed to soak my feet in cold water because they felt like they were burning, I was amazed to realize that the circulation had improved dramatically. My feet had regained a normal skin color, a sign of much better blood flow. Thanks for the recommendation—it’s made a real difference!

    My life was hell for 10 years from chronic gastritis and I almost didn’t graduate high school. I got zero sympathy from the nurse at school that called me the “frequent flyer” because I didn’t have a diagnosis, but my family was poor and had nothing, and my dad was sick and dealing with his own problems. As an adult I went back to a primary doctor that tried to throw anti depressants at all of my problems (I outright refused and it angered my lousy doctor). Tried going back to see a GI doctor at age 28 and finally had an endoscopy done, got my diagnosis, and never went back. I wished I was dead for a long time back in high school because my life was miserable and I was so alone. I used to convulse over a toilet for hours until I passed out on the floor in front of the toilet. Nothing I could do for it but smoke marijuana, and that saved my life.

    Many thanks Dr Berg, for providing the great info!

  • @erock5b says:

    I’ve had gastritis for 3 years. Zinc Carnosine, aloe juice, and cabbage juice are really the best things I’ve found to help.
