Pyloricil includes ingredients such as mastic gum, bismuth citrate and zinc carnosine to promote microbial balance in the gastrointestinal tract and the stomach.
Mastic gum is a resinous product which is obtained from the stem and leaves of the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus). The mastic tree is an evergreen shrub native to the Mediterranean Basin and has historically been used to support the health of the stomach.
Bismuth citrate is a naturally occurring mineral, frequently used to soothe the gastric and mucosal linings. Bismuth citrate also promotes microbial balance in the GI tract.
Zinc carnosine has been approved in Japan since 1994 for its use in stomach health. The health-promoting effects of zinc are enhanced significantly when combined with the essential nutrient, carnosine.
