Acid Defense was formulated by Garden of Life founder, Jordan Rubin, who is committed to creating products that allow the human body to maintain a healthy balance.
Aside from breathing and maintaining a heartbeat, maintaining a balanced pH is one of the most important metabolic functions that your body performs.
The stomach’s normal function is the production of highly acidic gastric juice. Sometimes heartburn shows up as an imbalance in the distribution of digestive system content.
According to the American Gastrointestinal Association, about 40 million people experience heartburn at least once per week and roughly 40% of people have heartburn at least once a month. Acid Defense provides alkalizing minerals from goat’s milk whey, along with organically grown vegetable juice concentrates. These natural food sources help your body to maintain comfortable pH levels.† Additionally, the enzymes in Acid Defense work to support healthy digestion.†
