Digest-Tone Tonic

Dr. Myatt's New Formula for Digestion

Lack of a normal amount of stomach acid is the main culprit in GERD
and many digestive disorders. If you mistakenly believe that GERD and heartburn
are due to too much stomach acid, please read this article: What's Burning You.

Stomach acid production tends to decrease with age. Stomach acid production is
necessary for normal diestion and assimilation of most nutrients. Digestive enzymes,
which replace "phase II" digestive enzymes, do NOT perform the same function as
normal stomach acid, which is "Phase I" of digestion.

Replacement with HCL (hydrochloric acid) is one way to reverse the decline of stomach acid.
However, many people find that using HCL is challenging because the dose must be closely
matched to the amount of protein and fats eaten with the meal.

Digest-Tone is an herbal tonic formulated by Dr. Myatt. It is a combination of herbs that helps to
naturally and safely increase and improve Phase I digestion in the stomach. In addition, Digest-Tone acts in a variety of ways to improve stomach and digestive function:

  • Stimulates digestive juices. "Bitter" herbs stimulate the stomach, liver, gallbladder and pancreas to begin secreting their digestive juices. (12, 19-20)
  • Relieves gas. "Carminative" herbs help relieve both upper and lower GI gas and the discomfort that gas can cause. (2)
  • Normalizes gastric motility, helping slow a "too-fast" gut and speeding up a sluggish gut.(6,10,13-14)
  • Decreases cramping and spasm. (2,9,16,19)
  • Relieves heartburn, indigestion and esophageal pressure. (19,20)
  • Helps heal stomach ulcers and inflammation. (1,3-5,11,18,22)
  • Stimulates production of the stomach's natural protective mucous. (11)
  • Help eliminate gut-unfriendly bacteria and parasites including H. pylorii and Campylobacter.(7, 15,17,19,21)

Ingredients: Corydalis, Fennel, Ginger, Goldenseal, Hops, Licorice, Oregon Grape, Marshmallow Root.

Suggested dose: 1/2 to 1 teaspoon, 1 to 3 times per day, taken in 2 ounces of water or red wine, 15-30 minutes before a meal. Sip slowly for best effect.
