3. What exactly does Gastronic Dr. do?

Gastronic Dr. is a capsule that is used every day for the continued support of the digestive tract. Regular use of Gastronic Dr. safely supports digestive health and all organs and structures involved in digestion, as well as the mucus membranes of the digestive tract. Gastronic Dr. also helps to maintain the natural balance of essential organisms (such as probiotics) in the digestive tract, further promoting easy, healthy digestion.

4. What does Gastronic Dr. contain?

Gastronic Dr. contains the following therapeutic herbs in convenient drop format:

  • German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is an herb that has been used by European naturopaths for centuries. It has a soothing and tonic effect on many body systems, including the digestive and nervous systems and this makes it an excellent supportive supplement for digestive health. (Della Loggia R, Carle R, Sosa S, and et al. "Evaluation of the anti-inflammatory activity of chamomile preparations." Planta Med 1990;56:657-658.)
  • Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) is a soothing remedy for the digestive system that helps to support the health of the stomach lining and digestive mucosa, also promoting healthy levels of stomach acid and digestive secretions. It has been researched extensively for its ability to support stomach health. (Barnaulov, O. D. and Denisenko, P. P. "Anti-ulcer action of a decoction of the flowers of the dropwort, Filipendula ulmaria (L.) Maxim". Farmakol.Toksikol. 1980;43(6):700-705.)
  • Slippery Elm (Ulmus fulva) is known for its bark, which is an excellent digestive herb rich in trace minerals, manganese, iodine, protein and soothing mucilage. It is a very highly respected herb in naturopathic circles and is regularly used in holistic remedies to improve the health of the digestive tract.
  • Cancer bush (Sutherlandia frutescens) has been used by indigenous people of Southern Africa for thousands of years to promote digestive health and as a supportive systemic tonic. Recent research has investigated its adaptogenic properties. Sutherlandia contains a number of highly active compounds, including pinitol, L-canavanine and the amino acid, GABA. L-canavanine is a strong L-argine antagonist. (Swaffer et al. 1995, Crooks and Rosenthal, 1994, Ostlund and Sherman, 1996).

Note: The herbs used in Gastronic Dr. have been specifically selected and are suitable to use in conjunction with prescription and over-the-counter medication, if required.

5. Is Gastronic Dr. approved by the FDA?

The FDA oversees all food and drug products. Since Gastronic Dr. is an herbal dietary supplement, they fall under the ambit of the FDA. In 1994 the FDA set up guidelines for dietary supplements, including labeling requirements, and created the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA). Gastronic Dr. follows all of DSHEA's guidelines.
