Ulcetrol - 60 Tabs
 
  • Digestive Health
  • With PepZin GI & Mastic Gum
  • Supports Health and Comfort of Stomach Lining Cells

NOW Ulcetrol is a dietary supplement designed to protect and support a healthy stomach lining.  Ulcetrol contains the patented ingredient, PepZin GI, which has been shown to provide a defense against damaging assault on the stomach's mucosal cells.  PepZin GI also has the ability to "seek out" and encourage the repair of injured thinning tissue. 

Zinc-L-carnosine may also help 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, such as h. pylori, and, therefore, is able to help maintain a GI environment that is favorable to health. By supporting the bacterial balance in the stomach, it can also help maintain a healthy mucosal lining.

NOW Ulcetrol has the additional benefit of Mastic Gum, a natural resin from Pistacia lentiscus, a small evergreen tree native to Greece, Mastic Gum similarly supports stomach health, having demonstrated it's effectiveness at providing relief of digestive discomfort. It is very soothing, and can help reduce inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.


Several studies have been published on mastic gum with regard to its positive effects on the gastrointestinal environment, thus gaining respect among the scientific and medical community. The most significant breakthrough to date is that of a recent study showing mastic gum’s effectiveness against at least seven different strains of Helicobacter pylori.

In other studies, mastic gum provided symptomatic relief of ulcers, reduced the intensity of gastric mucosal damage caused by anti-ulcer drugs and aspirin, and possessed antacid and cytoprotective qualities. In many of the studies using mastic gum on patients with ulcers, the original site of the ulcer was completely replaced by healthy epithelial cells.

Slippery Elm contains a substance called mucilage, which is a polysaccharide that becomes a gel when mixed with water. The mucilage comes from the inner bark of the tree and is a bit slippery and slimy, and that  is why it is called Slippery Elm.

This mucilage does a great job of soothing and coating the mouth, throat, stomach, and intestines, offering relief from things like Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease (GERT), Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, diverticulitis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and other illnesses.
