As much as completely agree with you, some of us are dependant on some medication whether temporarily or permanently. It's sometimes for quality of life, sometimes for survival.
I used to swear by modern prescribed acid blockers , omeprazole etc. but as mentioned they aren't intended for long term use . Why do folk expect a pharma company to sell stuff that works - they would be putting themselves out of business. Think about lifestyle and see a doctor.
I usually buy this from Tesco at a similar price
Does it? I hope it doesn't get lost among the dunes.
There is a load of links on the web, but I have not seen any published studies. Tried it myself and recommended to a few friends/family and has worked for them. Better to take something natural imo.
