Life Extension CarnoSoothe with PicroProtect 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Protecting against factors known to damage the gastric lining is essential to ensuring optimal stomach health. CarnoSoothe with PicroProtect™ combines four remarkable nutrient compounds that naturally modulate the growth of H. pylori while supporting the health of the gastric lining.

Two capsules of CarnoSoothe are recommended daily and supply 50 milligrams of zinc L-carnosine. Scientific evidence indicates this novel chelated compound of zinc and L-carnosine works synergistically to support delicate stomach tissue.31-35 Zinc-carnosine was developed in Japan as medicine and has been shown to help inhibit stomach inflammatory factors and the effects of cytokine release associated with H. pylori.36,37

Two capsules of CarnoSoothe also supply 500 milligrams of a standardized deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) extract. Licorice extract reduces the formation of pro-inflammatory molecules,38 spurs the formation of prostaglandins that support healthy stomach mucosa, and contains gastroprotective flavonoid compounds. Licorice has also been shown to help inhibit the growth of H. pylori39-41 and restore the health of the gastric lining.

Picrorhiza kurroa, a traditional herb grown in the Himalayan Mountains, has been shown to help support a healthy liver and stomach. Its extracts have potent antioxidative and immune-supporting properties, and play a role in gastric protection and healthy liver function.42-48 

Lastly, the formula also supplies 750 milligrams of NutriCran® GI, a patented blend of cranberry, wild blueberry, and grape seed extracts. Rich in proanthocyanidins and other antioxidant compounds, cranberry and other plant-based extracts, NutriCran® GI has been shown to be beneficial for gastrointestinal health.49,50
