Stomach Comfort is basically a natural antacid with other digestive calming ingredients. Calcium carbonate is the antacid. However, there are several other digestive aids in this product. Papaya has been used for decades to calm the stomach, as well as ginger. Slippery Elm bark is very mucilaginous--it "coats" the surfaces that it touches--similar to mucous.
It is important to remember that digestive problems are often best solved by addressing fundamental issues--such as simply getting plenty of food enzymes. A food enzyme product should be a part of virtually everyone's daily supplement routine. Persistent digestive problems may mean something much more serious. In these cases, a physician should definitely be consulted.
