Heartburn is rapidly becoming a more common health issue as the global population overall increases in weight and becomes more sedentary. FenuLife® has been clinically demonstrated to be safe and effective for conditions that affect significant global populations.
FenuLife is a soluble fiber characterized by a long-chain mannose backbone substituted with galactose in a 1:1 ratio. This unique and high degree of substitution gives the FenuLife a large water-binding capacity allowing the fibers bind the gastric contents forming a highly viscous mass which does not flow back into the esophagus. The viscous mass serves as a barrier against both endogenous stomach acid and pepsin, and food components that may promote heartburn.
In addition, it has been reported that fenugreek galactomannans might be responsible for inhibition of excessive acid production in the stomach, suggesting anti-secretory properties of fenugreek galactomannans. Therefore FenuLife may have a threefold effect on acid reflux:
- Protection of stomach lining
- Reduction of acid secretion
- Prevention of viscous mass to seep back up to throat.
