GERD, Acid Reflux, Heartburn

Whatever you call it, call in Khelp™.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), commonly known as acid reflux or heartburn, occurs when stomach acid flows up into your delicate esophagus. This can be due to overproduction of stomach acid or relaxation of what’s called the lower esophageal sphincter", which is a small circular muscle between your stomach and esophagus.

When acid enters the esophagus, it can cause symptoms like heartburn, acid regurgitation, nighttime or chronic cough, voice changes, and even chest pain.

Common causes of heartburn

Did you know that the most common culprits of heartburn are acidic and high fat foods? Think citrus, onions, coffee, tomatoes, cheese, and peppermint. Smoking, aspirin, and ibuprofen, and some medications can also trigger heartburn. So does pregnancy and being overweight.








Alginate Therapy

Alginate, the main ingredient in Khelp, has been used for decades and studied extensively.

When Alginate interacts with stomach acid, it forms a gel-like barrier that blocks the acid from your esophagus, putting a stop to reflux.

By keeping stomach acid in your stomach, Alginate prevents reflux from happening in the first place. Since it doesn’t interfere with the acid production people need for gut health and digestion, and because it’s a non-toxic, non-pharmacologic physical solution, it’s safe for long-term use and during pregnancy.*

Khelp vs. other treatments

Khelp provides real relief without interfering with the natural production of stomach acid, which is critical for digestion and long-term health.
