Did you know?
When your body becomes too acidic, it will attempt to compensate
by retaining alkaline salts in the bloodstream to offset the increase
of tissue acidity. Since your body can only tolerate a small imbalance in
blood pH, it will rob alkaline components from other places in an effort to
restore a proper pH balance. This can result in heartburn, digestive
distress, stomach upset, fatigue, and a multitude of different symptoms.
Commercial antacid products only alleviate the symptoms by blocking the
production of acid and can often produce unwanted side effects.They alter
your body's ability to absorb protein and calcium which can then create a
calcium deficiency and result in the need for a calcium supplement to
The ingredients in Garden of Life's Acid Defense, contain naturally
occurring alkalinizing components such as calcium and magnesium that re-
establish a balanced, healthy, system-wide pH. It is safe for daily

What makes Garden of Life's Acid Defense supplement better than other acid relief formulas?
Millions of people use commercial antacids and the growing number of over-the-counter options for acid reflux every day. Many of these products try to address acid reflux symptoms by reducing the production of stomach acids. However, stomach acids are critical for proper digestion.
Often commercial antacids also contain toxic ingredients such as aluminum and artificial colors and sweeteners. These chemicals not only disrupt digestion, but they also alter the structure and function of stomach lining cells and cause side effects like headache, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
The worse effect, even though there is some temporary relief, is that antacids exacerbate the underlying cause of acid reflux and one of its most annoying symptoms. By neutralizing what little acid the stomach may produce, the stomach acid insufficiency is made worse. Then, in a desperate attempt to correct the problem, the stomach occasionally produces a surge of too much acid, causing an uncomfortable burning sensation.
Garden of Life's Acid Defense, on the other hand, contains alkalinizing components that help soothe the stomach and reduce acid indigestion naturally.
How does alkalinizing reduce my heartburn and other digestive symptoms?
Dietary salt/sodium is alkaline by nature, and can be useful in the digestive process to break down foods and perform a wide variety of metabolic functions. When your body becomes too acidic, it compensates by pulling alkaline salts into the bloodstream. Since the body can tolerate only a slight imbalance in blood pH, it can rob precious alkaline reserves from the digestive tract in an attempt to restore the proper pH balance. This can result in heartburn, digestive distress, stomach upset, fatigue and other uncomfortable symptoms. The ingredients in Garden of Life's Acid Defense supplement contain naturally occurring alkalinizing components that reestablish a balanced, healthy, system-wide pH.
How does Garden of Life's Acid Defense supplement aid my digestive health?
Beneficial flora in the gut is the very foundation of health. The probiotics, live enzymes and alkalinizing minerals naturally occurring in goat's milk whey, along with organic vegetable juice concentrates and Garden of Life's powerful Enzyme Blend, produce a soothing effect, help maintain a balanced pH, and promote the growth of healthy flora throughout the intestines.
Why does Garden of Life's Acid Defense formula include sodium and potassium?
If it were not for sodium making the tissue in your stomach highly alkaline, the lining would be destroyed by hydrochloric acid that is normally produced there. The stomach, intestines, joints and ligaments are in constant need of natural food-source sodium like that found in Garden of Life's Acid Defense.
Potassium neutralizes acid waste and, in combination with sodium, maintains a healthy acid/alkaline balance. Potassium and sodium are almost always found together in the body and perform many of the same functions.
How do I use Garden of Life's Acid Defense to prevent occasional heartburn?
Simply take one heaping tablespoon mixed with 8 oz of water or juice before bed or whenever symptoms occur.
