Makers of Antacid Zantac Brace for Lawsuits

I've been following Suzy Cohen, RPh for over ten years.  This important heads up just came out today!
Talk about stress-related heartburn! The makers of the mega-popular antacid drug called Zantac are
now facing potential lawsuits that could total into the billions as the anti-ulcer drug comes into question. 
Today’s blog isn’t about whether or not the drug works. It definitely works in terms of reducing stomach acid.
It belongs to the category of acid reflux drugs called “H2 antagonists” which stands for Histamine-2
Receptor Antagonist. 
And there are many popular brands available in this drug category, among them, the very popular
Pepcid made by Pfizer which is still available for purchase. 
H2 Antagonists such as Zantac are stomach acid blockers. They’re extraordinarily popular,
among the most consumed drugs in the entire world. They were pitched to make us feel better,
to protect us from our own natural production of stomach acid! What a shocker to now sees
what’s happening. You better have a seat.
Acid blockers hurt the human body because they do just that, they block acid. It’s not Elon Musk
rocket science, it’s much simpler than that! Their mechanism of action is to raise the pH in the gut
from very acidic, to ==> alkaline. When you mess with stomach pH, your body can no longer absorb
essential nutrients and trace minerals from your meals. Then, over time, your body starts to starve for
nutrients, and that can happen even if you are at your proper weight, or above it. You also become
more susceptible to gluten allergies by the way. 
Did you know....
Ultra-processed foods make up 60% of the calories Americans consume and contribute
to poor health outcomes like insulin resistance, inflammation, and obesity. So it’s vital to
understand what happens to food at different stages of processing and how that processing
impacts our bodies.
Most protein powders on the market have up to 14 steps in their manufacturing
process making them highly processed. 🥴
My good friend Brandy Lemire couldn’t find a clean one she felt comfortable with
so they launched their own! Optima Life Organic Pumpkin Seed Protein!
Cleanest protein on the market and only TWO steps in our manufacturing process!
Making ours as close to Whole Foods as possible! 🙌🏻
The only ingredients are organic pumpkin seeds, amino acids and super foods.
No fillers, gums, sweeteners or preservatives!
Unsweetened and unflavored so it can be added to anything such as baking, cooking,
on granola, fruit, etc.
Most proteins use pea, whey, soy or brown rice…all which are not great for your body.

We only use pumpkin seeds! Pumpkin seeds are rich in vitamins and minerals
like manganese and vitamin K, both of which are important in helping wounds
heal. They also contain zinc, a mineral that helps the immune system fight
bacteria and viruses. Pumpkin seeds are also an excellent source of Phosphorus.
They are also ==>alkaline and anti-parasitic.
