I'm taking Cardegic 160, but that gives me tremendous

Customer Question

Hi, I'm taking Cardegic 160, but that gives me tremendous heartburn. So bad, that osmoprazole or any other product doesn't help. I wake up at night with heartburn. I was wondering if I could take NattoKinase Forte from Nutrisan in stead of Kardegic. Thank you.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Yes. As I said: Kardegic 160
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

There is really no reason to take a full 160 in most cases

ASk your doctor if you can lower the dose

Also ask if you can get an enteric coated kardegic

that will help

to answer your question.

No, natto kinase is not reliable.

It can over shoot or undershoot.

There is no good way to measure the effect of nattokinase; basically it is in the very earliest research stages.

There are medical alternatives

Don't do it.
