Natenzym-A provides the immediate relief from heartburn pain on contact, while promoting proper digestion with enzymatic formula.


Heartburn is the burning pain in the chest area as the result of irritation caused by stomach acid that splashes from the stomach through the lower esophageal sphincter into the esophagus.

  • Heartburn can occur at any age, and the incidences of heartburn tend to increase with age and most frequently occur among individuals over the age of 40.
  • 10-20 percent of population experience heartburn symptoms once per week.
  • 25-54 percent - once per year.
  • Up to 80 percent of pregnant women suffer from heartburn.

If burning pain in the chest occurs two or more times per week the Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) can be diagnosed, a medical condition with heartburn (a symptom of another digestive disorder, and not a disorder by itself) as a possible symptom of that condition.

Heartburn can occur for a number of reasons:

  • When the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the valve that keeps stomach acid in the stomach, is weakened or relaxed and doesn't do its job properly.
  • Certain foods, such as chocolate, fried and fatty foods, peppermint, coffee, alcohol, sugars, can weaken or relax the LES.
  • Eating large meals or shortly before bedtime.
  • Pressure on the stomach, including frequent bending over, tight clothes, lifting, obesity.
  • Certain medications – Non Steroidal Anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), calcium antagonists, antidepressants.
  • Smoking.
  • Exercising soon after eating.
  • Stress can increase acid production and slow down the emptying of the stomach.

Many people have different heartburn triggers, but most people have similar heartburn symptoms:

  • A burning sensation in the chest.
  • A burning feeling in the throat.
  • Sour or bitter taste in the mouth.
  • Difficulty swallowing.

Whether person have mild, moderate or severe heartburn, many treatment options are available. But the first treatment are lifestyle changes, what will decrease the frequency and severity of the heartburn.

Antacids - the first medication to neutralize stomach acid and alleviate heartburn symptoms.

Calcium carbonate - strong and fast-acting antacid.

The body produces gastric acid as part of the digestive process. Gastric acid, which is made up of hydrochloric acid (HCl), is needed to activate on contact digestive enzymes found in the stomach (pepsin) that are needed to help break down food and nutrients before they can be fully digested in the lower intestinal tract.
When antacids and acid suppressors lower the level of gastric acid with undigested food still in the stomach, the brain can be triggered into sending signals via the nervous system to the pancreas to releases the hormone gastrin. When the high pH level gastrin is released into the body, the stomach releases low pH level gastric acid to balance it out. Too much gastrin, however, can cause the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to become relaxed, thus possibly allowing released gastric acid to splash back into the esophagus and causing further heartburn.

Traditional antacids stop heartburn pain on contact by neutralizing the acid in the esophagus while increasing the pH level in the stomach to neutralize gastric acid, but they do not provide additional assistance to the body to digest any food remaining in the stomach. This could result in indigestion and intestinal discomfort.

Natenzym-A neutralizes heartburn on contact while providing digestive enzymes the body needs to support digestion of food and nutrients (proteins, fats and carbohydrates) thus reducing the potential of the negative overproduction cycle of gastrin and gastric acid.
