Proton Support™ is a dietary supplement specifically designed to help maintain the balance of vitamins, minerals and intestinal flora, typically affected by the prolonged use of proton pump inhibitors, such as Prilosec® (Omeprazole), Nexium® (Esomeprazole), Prevacid® (Lansoprazole), Dexilant® (Dexlansoprazole) and Protonix® (Pantoprazole), among others.
Proton Support™ contains unique forms of highly soluble calcium and iron, whose absorption does not depend on the gastric pH, which guarantees its bioavailability, even under conditions of lack of gastric acid.
Long-term treatment with proton pump inhibitors has shown to decrease the absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamin B12, leading to low levels of these important nutrients.
Low levels of these nutrients have also been associated with severe symptoms such as fatigue, unsteadiness, paresthesia, tetany, seizures, cardiac arrhythmias and neurological problems among others.
Long-term treatment with proton pump inhibitors has also been shown to facilitate the colonization of the gastrointestinal tract by pathogenic microorganisms such as Clostridium difﬁcile or Candida, which can produce diarrhea and esophageal candidiasis respectively.
Proton Support™ is beneficial for those who are going to take, or are already taking any proton pump inhibitor for more than three months. This is typically the case if you suffer from Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).
