A few weeks ago, I showed you how melatonin can be a fantastic cure for heartburn and GERD. In fact, it can reverse some of the worst cases of GERD. One week after I sent out that alert, I received the following letter from Mrs. B. It's impressive.
"I want to thank you for this informative article on GERD. It has been a miracle for my husband who was using Gas-X after most meals with little improvement. One time several years ago, he had violent vomiting for 45 minutes after a meal and it affected his balance for some time. I started him on 6 mg (of melatonin) the day I received your report and it was like a miracle. No drowsiness or grogginess either. It was the first time I had read that melatonin was produced in the cells of the intestinal tract not just in the brain. I thought you would like to know how this one article has helped us. Thank you so much!
All I can say is "Hallelujah!" I love hearing how natural treatments can bring complete cures! It's very exciting - especially when they work this fast.
But I'm not writing today just to tell you how great melatonin is. I also wanted to tell you about another nutrient you can take with melatonin to make it work even better - and perhaps even faster. That nutrient is d-limonene.
D-limonene has a fantastic reputation as a cancer fighter, which I'll tell you about in a future issue. But this extract from citrus peels is an extremely powerful digestive aide as well. Two recent studies show just how effective it is.
In the first study, researchers asked 19 adults to discontinue their over-the-counter or prescription medications and take D-limonene instead. All of these adults had suffered with mild to moderate symptoms of heartburn or GERD for at least five years. The researchers then asked the participants to rate their pain on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 meaning pain-free, and 10 equaling severe pain). All of them said their pain was at 5 or greater at the start of the study. After taking D-limonene for two days, 32% of the participants were symptom-free and rated their pain at a 1 or 2. That's right, nearly one-third of the participants had complete relief in just two days! But that's not all. After 14 days, an amazing 89% of the participants didn't have any symptoms. They were completely pain free!
The second study was just as impressive. It was a double-blind, placebo-controlled study with 13 participants. They followed the same symptom severity scale and took D-limonene for two weeks. By the fourth day, 29% in the D-limonene group didn't have any symptoms of heartburn (a 1 to 2 rating). All of those in the placebo group still had the same pain rating. By the 14th day, 86% of those taking D-limonene said they had complete relief and were pain free.
With nearly 90% of these participants experiencing complete relief in just two weeks, D-limonene is definitely worth trying all by itself. But couple it with melatonin and you may experience relief even faster. And now you can take both of them at the same time in one product. Advanced Heartburn Relief has both melatonin and D-limonene. It might be exactly what you need to get rid of heartburn and GERD once and for all. Plus, you'll get all the other benefits of these wonderful nutrients.
