Gastroesophageal Disease (GERD) is a common ailment which is growing in incidence on a global level. Common symptoms include heartburn, regurgitation and nausea. Current treatments include synthetic drug options, such as over-the-counter (OTC) antacids, or prescription medications, which all have side effects. There is a need for effective natural treatments without harmful side effects to address this burgeoning problem.

Gastro-AD® is a food supplement based on non-GMO soy fermented by Lactobacillus strain L. delbrueckii R-187. It has been studied for over 50 years, since its origin in Bulgaria. This supplement has excellent evidence for safe and effective use for management of gastric discomfort and the relief of occasional heartburn, backed by several published studies, involving close to 600 subjects in total. Altogether these studies showed that this fermented soy-based solution is very well tolerated and leads to quick relief of symptoms including heartburn, gastric pain, vomiting, and nausea. Gastro-AD®​ represents a natural, safe and effective alternative to OTC digestive discomfort solutions with the extra nutritional benefits from fermented soy.
