No,EsopH® is not a ranitidine product. Ranitidine is part of a drug family known as H2 (or histamine-2) blockers. It is commonly used to relieve and prevent heartburn. In 2019, Health Canada has requested all companies to stop distributing ranitidine drugs, indicating that N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) – a probable human carcinogen has been detected in some ranitidine drugs*.
Unlike ranitidine,EsopH® is a natural health product approved by Health Canada. The main ingredients of EsopH® are Chondroitin sulfate and Hyaluronic Acid – the substances that also occur naturally in bodies. The ingredients work together to create a coating barrier on the esophagus and protect the esophagus lining from the stomach acid.
