Stomach Problems, Gastritis & Digestion
An "Itis" anywhere in the body
means inflammation. Gastritis is inflammation of the
This inflammation results in the
destruction of the upper layer of cells of the stomach
lining. Erosion of this protective
layer opens the underlying layers of the stomach
vulnerable to damage - from the enzymes and acid of the
stomach itself which can affect gastric functions.
Gastritis has many causes. Recent research has found that the majority of cases are due to bacteria which grow in the mucous secreting cells of the lining. Chronic gastritis develops gradually and can come from certain drugs that irritate the stomach lining (especially the non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) as well as infections both bacterial and viral.

Brain & Digestive System Connection
"How do the brain and digestive system work together? The enteric nervous system (ENS) cells in the lining of the gut communicate with the brain, which controls the body's vital functions.
As part of that system, millions of sympathetic nerves and neurons run between your gut and brain. A troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person's stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression."

Dr. Berg's Digest Formula
The importance of stomach acids has not been focused on enough. The correct pH (acid level) for the stomach should be between 1 to 3. This is VERY acidic, but is necessary to break down proteins, collagen, absorb minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, etc.) and B12 as well as to help kill off unfriendly microbes before entering the intestines. A strong acid stomach is also necessary to help release bile from the liver and enzymes from the pancreas.
Gallbladder Formula contains natural ingredients to help break down gallstones and provide bile salts for bloating and digestive stress.
This product has a blend of gallbladder targeted nutrients to thin bile, reduce digestive stress, break down stones and improve the digestion of fats. Most digestive drugs work by reducing acid and this natural product enhances the bile, a commonly omitted factor.
