Almost everyone has suffered from indigestion issues at least once in their lives. If you experience indigestion or other stomach issues quite often, you may want to try this popular antacid herbal product from Japan called “Ohta’s Isan Antacid Powder”. It is said that this product is also a very popular purchase among tourists from China.
This product is purportedly useful for a variety of issues related to the digestive system troubles such as heartburn, discomfort from drinking too much, general stomach discomfort, dyspepsia, overeating, stomach pain, indigestion, loss of appetite, hyperacidity, abdominal bloating, nausea, vomiting, and burping.
The product is available in powder and tablet forms. I bought 140g powder can that also comes with a spoon inside which is useful to measure the product.
For those who cannot read Japanese, the ingredients of the powder are: Magnesium alumino-metasilicate, precipitated calcium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, cinnamon bark, cinnamon oil, citrus unshu peel, clove, fennel, fennel oil, gentian, lemon oil, menthol, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline, cellulose, nutmeg, and powdered Picrasma wood.
To take it, just put some powder in your mouth and then chase it down with a glass of water. From what I hear the proper way to drink powdered medicine is to put a little water in your mouth, then put some powder on top of it and then drink more water, the sip of water in the beginning will protect your taste buds from bitter medications. This powder, however, does not taste bitter or unpleasant. It brought instant relief to indigestion I was experiencing.
Ohta’s Isan is one of the oldest pharmaceutical companies in Japan, it has been around since 1879! This is quite impressive, and helps the company to use the traditional approach for modern troubles.
The company also produces other products such as Ohta Kanpo Stomach & Intestines Medicine II for which the famous actress Motokariya Yuika was chosen to star in commercial. The product is used to relieve gastritis caused by stress which is supposedly common among women aged between 20 to 40 years old. Motokariya was chosen for the commercial due to her happy and positive image as the company wanted to lift the spirits of women who suffer from stress.
Ohta’s Isan has great reputation for bringing relief to stomach issues. Since the product also contains herbal ingredients, it seems to be a healthier choice as well. You may keep an Ohta’s Isan product at home so your family and you can take it when experiencing any stomach discomfort!
