Pre-Clinical Study among IC Sufferers
This reports results of a pre-clinical study conducted among Acid Redux users/purchasers, who suffer from Interstitial Cystitis (IC) during the period 5/13/2004 and 3/29/2005.


Purchasers were contacted by email approx. 4 weeks after they ordered Acid Redux. They were asked to fill out a form at , on which they rated their experience with Acid Redux before and after taking this Dietary Supplement.

They were offered a free bottle of Acid Redux as an incentive to complete and submit they study. Note, if they did not want another bottle of Acid Redux, they were allowed to choose another product from Evergreen’s website,

Summary of the Results of the Study

• There were 12 total respondents
• all them currently suffer from IC, 6 from other acid-related diseases.
• Of the 12 with IC, they rated the severity of their pain (on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the most severe pain):
• 7.25 before medication of any kind
• 5.27 after medication
• 2.73 after using Acid Redux
* 3 reported that their frequency of urination went from 20.8 times per day before to 7.5 times after Acid Redux.
• 7 reported that with Acid Redux they were able to cease the use of the Antacid and/or Acid Blocker that they were previously using …3 were not able to and 2 did not report
• All 12 respondents said that they would recommend Acid Redux to people with similar conditions.


”I just wanted you to know that this is the most terrific product I’ve come across since being diagnosed with IC – Keep Up The Good Work – it helps so much.”

”Acid Redux has given me back my normal life! I can now eat foods I thought I’d never eat again, in moderation, of course. I still avoid coffee, tea, sodas, and alcohol. Big ”no-nos” for IC patients! And now, I can sleep the whole night through without having to get up every hour to urinate! My depression (about my condition) has ceased and life is good again! Thank you! I am grateful.”

”I have finally found some relief. I have suffered from IC for 4+ years. I have intense pain daily and have had every test given and every pill taken. Nothing worked as effectively as Acid Redux. THANK YOU… THANK YOU.

I have recommended Acid Redux to my daughter-in-law and to other people that I know that I think would be helped by your product.”
Kathy Arnspiger
Prescott, AZ

”Acid Redux definitely has made a difference for me especially today when I ate items that didn’t agree with my bladder – I took extra doses of Acid Redux (4 in the last 2 hours) and the pain was greatly diminished. I am thankful to have found your product. It sure would be great if I could eventually go off Elmiron but I’ve not been brave enough yet to make that attempt..”

Acid Redux is more effective than any of the medications used by these respondents. A majority of respondents reported that with Acid Redux they were able to stop using the medications they were previously using. All respondents reported a reduction in the pain associated with IC. All 12 said that they would recommend Acid Redux to anyone else suffering from IC. 

Interstitial Cystitis Study Conclusion:
Acid Redux is more effective than any of the medications used by these respondents. A majority of respondents reported that with Acid Redux they were able to stop using the medications they were previously using for Interstitial Cystitis. All but one respondent, who had no pain, reported a reduction in the pain associated with IC (Interstitial Cystitis) and all reported a reduction in the frequency of urination. 18 of the 20 said that they would recommend Acid Redux to anyone else suffering from IC (Interstitial Cystitis).

How does Acid Redux reduce the pain and frequency of urination associated with IC (Interstitial Cystitis)???

The reason is, we hypothesize, that it is formulated to not only reduce stomach acid, but also to dissolve in the upper intestine where it reduces acid in the body electrolytes (fluids). If the urine is no longer acidic it does not irritate the bladder when passing through it. Note: Acid Redux is completely natural, containing only Coral Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium hydroxides and some excipients used in tableting.

You should take 1 Acid Redux tablet at least 1 hour before each meal and before bedtime. If that does not reduce the discomfort, increase the dosage to 2 or 3 tablets 4 times a day. Have patience! Some of our customers with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) notice an improvement right away, while others report that it takes as long as a week and a half to 2 weeks before they feel no pain, burning or itching. Every body is different.       

Information on Interstitial Cystitis
Scientists Find Surprising Way to Prevent Pain

What do Heartburn, Interstitial Cystitis (IC), Vulvadynia, Periodontal disease, Fibromyalgia, Diverticulitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Gout and even Osteoporosis have in common??? A growing number of doctors are getting to what they believe to be the heart of a common contributor to pain from these diseases – body acidity.

As we age, our bodies naturally become more acidic. This is because we cannot absorb calcium, an alkali mineral that balances the body’s pH, as easily as when we were younger. Then, many make a bad situation worse by consuming acidic foods and beverages, which can lower the body’s pH even further.

For example, the body’s blood pH should be close to neutral at 7.0 pH, but the following foods and beverages are high in acid content with low pHs:

Food/Beverage pH Level
Coffee and Tea 4.7 to 5.3
Tomato Products 3.0 to 5.3
Wine 3.0 to 3.5
Citrus Fruits 1.5 to 3.0

Consuming these foods and beverages can raise the acidity in blood, urine and saliva.

Interstitial Cystitis , a urinary disease that causes frequent and painful urination, currently has no cure. However, IC patients report that, if they reduce the acid levels in their body and in the foods and beverages that they consume, the pain subsides.

Patients who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Diverticulitis and Fibromyalgia also report that the symptoms of these diseases may be reduced when they lower their body’s acidity levels.

Osteoporosis may have more to do with high acidic levels in the body than with the amount of calcium intake from dietary sources. Some experts believe that if the body is out of balance pH-wise, it will try to neutralize its pH by accessing calcium from either dietary calcium or bone mass, whichever is more available.

Gout is caused by uric acid forming crystals that settle in the body’s lower extremities. When gout sufferers significantly reduce the acid levels in their bodies, the pain can be reduced.

One practicing Periodontist in Bellevue, WA, conducted a pre-clinical study over a six-month period with 10 severe cases of gum disease or Periodontitis. He treated these patients with an acid reducing toothpaste and measured gum bleeding, an indicator of this disease. He reported that these patients had a 90% reduction in gum bleeding and inflammation. One theory is that when the pH in human saliva is raised to a neutral level, the bacteria that cause periodontal disease can no longer survive in the mouth.

So if acid is the key, why not take plenty of antacids? First, many popular brands contain artificial ingredients like aluminum hydroxide, which has been suspected to cause Alzheimer’s Disease. Second, many antacids contain large amounts of calcium, which is hard to absorb and, when consumed too heavily can cause constipation, kidney stones, bone spurs and certain kinds of arthritis. A natural alternative to antacids exists with Acid ReDux, a natural Dietary Supplement, that reduce body acidity with highly effective, natural ingredients that have no negative side effects.

Acid Redux 100 
Acid Redux is a dietary supplement that is the natural alternative to Antacids. Acid Redux is 11 times more effective than the leading Antacid brand. As we age, most people’s bodies become more acidic. Acid ReDux not only reduces stomach acid, but also dissolves in the upper intestine to reduce the acidity of the body fluids.

Plus, Coral Calcium, used as a buffering agent, is one of the most bioavailable form of Calcium. Our Coral Calcium is marine grade, mined from fossilized coral. Along with Calcium, it contains magnesium, potassium, many essential trace minerals and up to 75 microelements.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement for adults, take 1 to 2 tablets up to 4 times daily with a glass of water. Do not exceed 12 tablets per day. If you are pregnant or nursing, consult with your physician before using this product.
