5 years ago I bought Gastro Mend from my MD who is also a Naturopathic (he is now retired unfortunately). It was wonderful and healed me from GERD and gastritis. In the beginning of the year I had an ear infection and was prescribed an antibiotic that messed up with my stomach and I am still trying to heal from it. Unfortunately Gastro Mend is very expensive and I cannot afford it any longer. I found out that Gastric Soothe from Source Naturals is a more affordable option but it does not have the same ingredient as Gastro Mend does..just the zinc.
Did not work for me
I started this when I went vegan, as this and B12 are really the only essential things that need to be supplements. This is a great source of vegan-friendly Omega 3s, which is especially important since I also have Sjogren's Syndrome. Very pleased with this product, knowing that I'm able to be vegan and support my health.
I almost did not buy these because my experience with the last batch was mixed. When last I bought them the capsules looked cheap and handmade and there was a very strong fishy smell and taste. This time, however, the capsules look manufactured and there is almost no odor and no taste. So what's the deal? Poor quality control? Did I get counterfeit ones last time? The bottles are the same so I don't get it, but I do understand now the very divergent reviews where one person says there's no fishy taste and another says it's very strong. This company needs to get their act together. When I bought them this time I decided that if they were fishy it would be the last order from me. Now I don't know because it seems next might be fishy or might not.
I have been a vegetarian for 40-some years and have needed to take naps to function for the past 30 or so. I tried this to see if it would help with memory problems and am starting my third month. As you may know, vegetarians don't get much Omega 3 or DHA unless they really work at it. Research indicates it takes up to 6 months for it to help with that. HOWEVER, what I've noticed the past few weeks is that I'm less tired/fuzzy-headed during the day, which is quite wonderful. Apparently DHA needs vary (I think because some people are better than others at synthisizing it). This is the first of many vitamins and medicines I've tried that has helped. It's not going to help everyone, but if you have tiredness or memory problems I strongly recommend trying it. (This brand was recommended by someone who is familiar with brand qualities, so I suggest trying this brand first)
