About NOW Foods

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

NOW Commitments

  • Customer Focused and Information Driven - NOW believes that their products, services, and the decisions they make should be primarily influenced by the desires and needs of NOW customers. The decisions that NOW makes should be based on accurate information and therefore NOW places a high value on knowledge and learning within their organization.
  • Quality and Value Oriented - Acting in the best interest of NOW customers, NOW endeavors to produce the highest quality products at competitive prices. NOW's first priority is to maintain quality where it counts the most - in the products. NOW's exceptional cost-conscious team of employees then focuses their energies on driving costs down. Nurturing this competency of value drives NOW's ability to provide high quality products at the very best prices.
  • Natural is Better - NOW is convinced that natural products are better than their synthetic counterparts and produce better results in human health. Therefore, wherever possible, NOW strives to provide products that contain natural ingredients because they are better for their customers.

NOW Science
NOW experienced professional and technical staff formulate their products to be of the highest quality. NOW have a group of biochemists, chemists, nutritionists, and food technologists who review current science and nutritional parameters, and formulate their products to be effective for the intended use. NOW structure/function claims are based on science for active ingredients, and on nutritional science for nutritional content. Serving sizes are based on doses from clinical studies and other published data. NOW contemporary formulas are designed to meet the health and wellness needs of today’s consumers. NOW use ingredients that have been tested for effectiveness in clinical trials and laboratory studies.

The heart of their science is third party independent research. NOW investigate and review clinical studies and other lab studies conducted on their ingredients and their formulas. Best science is used to support best formulations which lead to best quality.

NOW products are constantly being tested in clinical trials conducted at top universities and research centers around the country and in various parts of the world. NOW products are being tested to determine such things as effectiveness for joint support, quality of life for cancer patients, cardiovascular support, and athletic endurance. Effective products mean health and wellness benefits, which mean quality.

GMP Quality Assured
NOW's GMP certification covers standard operating procedures, employee training, product specifications, expiration dating, vendor certifications and much more.

    What is GERD?
    Hydrochloric acid is secreted due to chemical signals in the stomach. This digestive acid secretion is one of the links in the chain of events necessary for proper digestion of food. Some people overproduce stomach acid and suffer occasional heartburn when they consume certain acid-stimulating foods and beverages. A more serious condition is called GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). GERD is a syndrome caused by a dysfunctional lower esophageal sphincter that permits an upward flow of gastric hydrochloric acid into the esophagus. In other words, the top of the stomach fails to close properly and allows stomach acid to escape upwards. This abnormal upward flow of gastric acid causes burning and continual erosion of the esophageal tissue. This can happened even if the stomach lacks enough acid to properly digest proteins and minerals, and is sometimes caused by food intolerances, stress or other factors.

    How does Acid Comfort work in the stomach to provide relief?
    Acid Comfort has a soothing influence on the smooth muscle, esophageal mucosa (mucus membraines) and blood vessels of the gastrointestinal system (GI) by buffering the hydrochloric acid secretions that cause the irritation experienced by those with GERD or acid reflux. Acid Redux does not treat GERD or acid reflux disease, but does relieve the symptoms. The acid-neutralizing composition of Acid Redux includes the rapid-acting alkaline minerals potassium and magnesium hydroxide, as well as the longer acting alkaline mineral calcium carbonate. These alkaline minerals are effective in directly reducing stomach acidity. This product is equally helpful in reducing the acidity of orange and tomato juice, as well as caffeinated beverages like coffee and tea. The proper low pH (acidity) in the stomach should not be confused with the overall pH of the body, which is sometimes assessed by urinating on a pH test strip with the first urination of the morning. This test approximates the pH of the bloodstream as a means of assessing the body’s reserves of alkaline, buffering minerals, which affects a wide range of health factors, including bone health. This is about metabolic pH, not stomach acid or foods that taste acidy.

    Is Acid Redux as effective in buffering hydrochloric acid as some other over the counter products?
    Laboratory testing comparing Acid Comfort to four major over-the-counter brands of antacids has shown that Acid Comfort is faster acting in its ability to neutralize a hydrochloric acid solution of pH 2.20. Its stronger “base nature” (alkalinity) initiates the buffering effect on the H+ ions (positive hydrogen), allowing the neutralizing effect to react quickly and over a longer period of time for extended relief.

    Is Acid Redux like the prescription proton pump inhibitors that stop the secretion of gastric acid in the stomach?
    No, Acid Comfort is not a proton or gastric acid pump inhibitor. It does not inhibit the production of gastrin (the hormone that stimulates the production of gastric juice), as proton pump inhibitors do.
