What You Need To Know About Your PPI Drugs
New research has raised even more red flags regarding PPI drugs commonly used for heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux. This critical report may change the way you consider treating your symptoms.
If you experience heartburn, indigestion, acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), you are familiar with Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs). Frequently used to treat minor symptoms, they may also be increasing your risk for chronic kidney disease.
According to a study involving 250,000 people, these drugs appear to significantly elevate the chances of developing chronic kidney disease.
Trouble Ahead for PPI Drugs
Unfortunately, PPIs have been advertised on a broad scale to consumers and heavily promoted to physicians. Recently, NBC News released this video: Heartburn Medicine Linked to Chronic Kidney Disease Risk stating that over 15 million Americans spent over 10 Billion dollars in 2013 for Proton Pump Inhibitors.
Let’s not forget the long list of possible side effects including bone fractures, infections, pneumonia, breathing problems, agitation, nervousness, vomiting, unusual bleeding and bruising, breast enlargement, and constipation.
People who suffer from frequent, but mild attacks of heartburn quickly reach for these PPI drugs thinking they are safe. But studies are proving otherwise.
Your All Natural Alternative to PPIs
At Maty’s, we knew natural options were limited for those who suffer from heartburn, indigestion, or acid reflux. That’s why we developed our All Natural Acid Indigestion Relief, which comes in syrup & capsule form. They’re so safe, even pregnant woman can use it for their heartburn symptoms.
With this new information about PPI drugs, maybe more doctors will recommend that their patients find other, more natural ways to alleviate minor heartburn symptoms. Wouldn’t it be nice if they recommended Maty’s! 🙂
