Calcium carbonate is an antacid commonly used before, during and after pregnancy for sour stomach and indigestion. Since Bismuth Subsalicylate (pepto bismol) is not recommended during pregnancy, calcium carbonate is a preferred product for heartburn. In addition, since so many pregnant women do not or cannot obtain enough calcium through diet, calcium carbonate serves a dual purpose. The recommended dosage is 500-1000mg orally as needed. Tame the Flame! is best absorbed when fully chewed. The light mint flavor is particularly helpful for nausea. Higher doses of calcium as a supplement can cause constipation and caution is advised for those with a history of kidney stones; thus plenty of fluids are advised.

Do you have a five alarm fire in your chest (aka, heartburn during pregnancy)? Okay, we get it, there’s nothing cutsie about heartburn during pregnancy. Our OB/GYN recommended Tame the Flame! provides safe relief of heartburn during pregnancy.
Heartburn (acid indigestion) is an irritation of the esophagus that is caused by stomach acid. This can create a burning discomfort in the upper abdomen or below the breastbone.
Classic heartburn symptoms include: a burning sensation that starts at the upper stomach or lower breastbone and progresses upward. Heartburn may occur after a meal or when bending over.
During pregnancy, the placenta produces the hormone progesterone, which relaxes the smooth muscles of the uterus. Progesterone also relaxes the valve that separates the esophagus from the stomach. As a result, gastric acids seep back up and cause an unpleasant burning sensation. Progesterone also slows down the wavelike contractions of the esophagus and intestines, making digestion slower. Later in pregnancy, as the baby grows, the abdominal cavity becomes crowded and pushes the stomach acids back up into the esophagus. Many women start experiencing heartburn and other gastrointestinal discomforts in the second half of pregnancy.
