Finally! An effective solution for reflux, heartburn, constipation, and other slow motility problems that does not require acid blockers or laxatives! Reflux + Motility is a comprehensive and effective way to manage digestion and promote regularity. *

Reflux Issues?
Blocking Acid and Forcing Regularity is Not the Answer.
Reflux + Motility is the Better Way!

If you’re suffering from reflux, heartburn, constipation, and digestive discomfort each day you’re not alone.  Millions of people also suffer from the same problems, but taking acid blockers or laxatives long-term is not the solution.  Long term use of these products creates dependency and does not solve the root cause of the problem.

We finally have an answer, Silver Fern Brand’s Reflux + Motility!

Reflux + Motility may help with:

  • Recent and long-term reflux, heartburn, nausea, bloating, burping, and belching problems*
  • Long-term entrenched constipation problems*
  • Feelings of fullness*
  • Slow Motility*
  • Stomach cramps and discomfort*
  • Sleep and stress support*
  • Nutrient absorption*
  • Improved stomach and gut barrier*

How does it work?

Reflux - Mucosal Support's Key Ingredient and Its Role:

The key ingredient in Silver Fern’s Reflux is MucoSave®. This ingredient supports a key foundational system of the stomach: the mucosal layer. This layer nourishes and protects stomach cells so they can get back to their daily job of producing stomach acid, digestive molecules, and signaling compounds.* 

Reflux can help:

  • Support gastric emptying*
  • Reduce regurgitation of stomach contents*
  • Hydrate the colon for improved regularity*
  • Improve nutrient absorption*

Dosing: Take 1 scoop per day, best taken after a meal. Mix in with 2-12 ounces of water per serving.

Motility's Ingredients and their roles:

Motility is a powerful combination of three key ingredients designed to stimulate peristalsis (the motion in the system that causes regularity). This product has a unique and comprehensive mode of action that addresses the key pillars of motility.*

Artichoke Leaf Extract:
The specialized artichoke leaf extract in Motility helps with bile acid secretion. Bile acids modulate gastric emptying as well as small and intestinal colonic motility.
Tender Okra Pods
Okra pods contain mucilage, a gelatinous substance that can help soothe and support the protective barrier in the gut known as the mucosal barrier.
Winter Cherry (ashwagandha):
Winter cherry can help the body more effectively manage stress and improve serotonin signaling, both of which play an important role in proper gut motility. If you have a nightshade sensitivity, please note that the winter cherry is an extract and does not appear to have the compounds that may aggravate inflammatory responses and should not increase histamine production.*

Motility may help:

  • Promote bile acid secretion*
  • Maintain peristalsis, the wave-like motion that pushes material through digestion*
  • Hydrate stools for comfortable transit and ease of evacuation*
  • Lower cortisol levels and stress responses*
  • Lubricate mucosal tissues*
  • Support the small intestinal barrier for proper DAO enzyme production*
  • Improve serotonin levels which in turn promotes motility*

Dosing: Take 2 capsules per day with water.

Reflux & Motility Together

Together these products are extremely effective at helping with reflux, heartburn, and stomach problems. Except for a few rare circumstances (ZES, obstructions, and chronic kidney failure), stomach problems are not actually caused by too much stomach acid. Whether it’s reflux, heartburn, indigestion, or some other stomach problems, we find that effectively helping with the following three areas helps the most:

(1) Build up the stomach barrier to protect against acid

(2) Supporting normal stomach acid production

(3) Improve gastric emptying (motility) to reduce the pressure and volume in the abdomen that may be weakening the lower esophageal sphincter (LES)

Reflux and Motility can help with:

  1. Low stomach acid*
  2. Impaired digestion*
  3. Abdominal pressure*
  4. A weak or damaged stomach mucous lining*
  5. Slow gastric emptying*
  6. Elevated Inflammatory responses of the stomach’s mucous lining*

Reflux + Motility was created to help address the underlying causes of all these issues! *

MOTILITY (1 bottle/month) - 2 capsules per day with or without food (preferably in the morning)

Moderate to Severe Issues:

REFLUX (2 bottles/month) - 2 scoops of Reflux per day with or without a meal (preferably in the morning)

MOTILITY (2 bottles/month) - 4 capsules of Motility per day with or without food (preferably in the morning)

Reflux + Motility Tips:

  1. While most people see results within the first few weeks, please give Reflux and Motility at least 30 days to help with reflux, heartburn, constipation, and other stomach discomforts. We recommend following this plan for 90 days to help restore comfort and regularity. This allows the products the time they need to help strengthen the stomach barrier, improve natural acid secretion (stomach acid management), and turn your digestive system on so it can function independently.
  2. Motility is not a laxative, and neither Reflux nor Motility will inhibit or block acid. If you need immediate support for help with reflux, heartburn, or constipation issues, please see your doctor and talk with them about the appropriate options for you.*
  3. You may have constipation along with diarrhea and loose stools issues. This is not uncommon as slow motility issues can cause diarrhea and loose stools. We have found that starting with slow motility first is the most effective way to resolve both issues.
  4. If you are concerned about Stevia, monk fruit, or natural flavors, you may replace Reflux in this protocol with Regularity. Regularity contains the same key MucoSave® ingredient as Reflux. Replace 1 scoop of Reflux with 1 capsule of Regularity.  You must open the capsules of Regularity to add into a food or drink of your choice for it to be effective. It is critical for MucoSave® to be able to coat the esophagus and stomach for these issues. This will not happen if taken in the capsule.
  5. Reflux can be added to juice, food, drinks, smoothies, or water according to your preference.
  6. If you are on laxatives, you can typically start easing off them in weeks 2 to 4 or at the first signs of loose stools. As your regularity returns, laxatives may cause diarrhea and loose stools. This is an indication that you may no longer need laxatives. Please do not take Motility at the same time of day as laxatives and remember that high doses of caffeine can also act as laxatives.
  7. If you are taking acid blockers and want to stop using them, please do not start easing off them until weeks 2 to 4 or at the first signs that your stomach issues are lessening. You may take Reflux and acid blockers at the same time of day.
  8. If you have been on Motility for several weeks and you find that your stools are the consistency of “soft-serve ice cream,” please consider adding more fiber to your diet to help give your stool more form. Fiber deficiency will affect the quality of your regularity. Sensitive Gut Fiber is a low FODMAP prebiotic fiber that can help with constipation and regularity.
  9. If you have slow stomach emptying issues, please wait until the feelings of fullness have been gone for 2 weeks before adding fiber to your diet. Fiber may make people with slow gastric emptying feel worse.
  10. We do not recommend mixing and matching other products and protocols with this protocol. Vitamins and enzymes that do not make you feel nauseous or uncomfortable are fine to take during all stages of the protocols.  Please always consult your doctor or physician before taking these or any other supplements.
  11. MucoSave® in Reflux provides a rapid gel-like coating to the digestive system. This immediate change in the microbiome may cause some cause gas and bloating. If this occurs, reduce the dosing of Reflux for a week then build back to normal doses as your system allows. 

If your reflux and heartburn issues persist after 90 days of taking Reflux and Motility, please consider the following options:

  • Your reflux and heartburn issues may stem from bacterial or fungal imbalances in the stomach. Bacterial and fungal imbalances may cause gastritis and low stomach acid. H. pylori overgrowth, for example, has been shown to cause reflux and heartburn. Please consider doing the Pathogen Protocol after Reflux + Motility if reflux and heartburn issues persist.
  • A hiatal hernia is when the stomach bulges through the diaphragm. A hiatal hernia can result in a retention of acid that can back up into the esophagus causing reflux and heartburn. Products cannot repair a hiatal hernia.  Please see a medical professional if you believe you have a hiatal hernia problems. Reducing upper abdominal pressure may help prevent a hiatal hernia from worsening, and therefore help with the reflux and heartburn caused by a hiatal hernia, but they will never resolve a hiatal hernia.

Reflux is a Motility Issue:

Reflux and upper GI complaints are rooted in motility dysfunction. When the body isn’t effectively moving food through the stomach, it can get pushed back up into the esophagus. People may experience heartburn, acid reflux, or a feeling that food is just sitting in their stomach for hours on end. We’ve pinpointed the exact mechanisms involved in slow gastric emptying and designed a product that targets key mechanisms to reduce reflux issues. Luckily, many of these mechanisms can also relieve constipation!*

Reflux + Motility supports:

                Bile acid production: Poor bile production is common in people with reflux and stomach issues. Artichoke leaf extract is proven to stimulate bile production, improve gastric emptying, reduce gas production, and reduce abdominal discomfort. Furthermore, bile itself is a prokinetic agent. Once it enters the large intestine, it signals the body into peristalsis. We chose a high potency artichoke leaf extract to maximize efficacy!*

                 Gastrin production: This is a signaling molecule secreted in the stomach. It supports healthy stomach acid levels (essential for stomach motility!) and tells the body to keep food moving through the system.*

                Mucosal layers: When the mucosal layer in the stomach is worn down, it sets off a cascade of events that can damage the digestive system and slow down motility. Both Motility and Reflux have mucilage-containing ingredients (okra pods and MucoSave®) that coat the mucosal layer, which lead to improved signaling in the GI tract. The final outcome is a reduction in reflux and constipation!*

                Serotonin signaling: Most of the serotonin in the human body resides in the GI tract. This “happy neurotransmitter” stimulates peristalsis by acting on nerves. Serotonin promotes the rest and digest response, which keeps food moving through the stomach and intestines.*

Here are some common issues and discomforts that are often caused by slow motility.

  • Constipation
  • Reflux and heartburn
  • Bloating and distension
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Stomach aches and pains
  • Feeling full quickly from eating a small amount of food and feeling full for hours after
  • Hoarseness and coughing
  • Choking on food
  • Regurgitation
  • Diarrhea (diarrhea can be caused by slow motility)
