Here are answers to questions we hear frequently from customers. We hope the NaturCress FAQs that follow are helpful to your evaluation of our natural supplement.
Our sensitivity to certain foods increases as we get older. They start triggering an unpleasant, painful burning feeling behind the breastbone known as heartburn. Avoiding heartburn can lead to unwelcome limits on what, how much and when we eat. NaturCress® can help free you from these limits.
Heartburn trigger foods may be spicy, rich or acidic. Acidic tomato sauce is the classic heartburn trigger. Tomato sauces are in so many dishes we love including Mexican and Italian. Chocolate, wine, mint, onions, peppers and citrus also commonly trigger heartburn. While some foods add acid directly, others trigger the stomach to “pump-up” the acid level. Even so, the trigger foods still taste great and no one wants to give them up. The best natural answer to this kind of heartburn is the innovative NaturCress supplement. Just take a serving before eating and bedtime.
● A burning pain in the chest that usually occurs after eating and may occur at night
● Pain that worsens when lying down or bending over
● Bitter or acidic taste in the mouth
Heartburn is the feeling we get when acid “refluxes” or backs up into the esophagus and irritates it. The lining of the esophagus is not as well protected from acid as the stomach lining.
Here’s a short explanation on the differences between acid reflux, heartburn and GERD that has been reviewed by a doctor.
Acid reflux is a mechanism, heartburn a symptom and GERD a disease that can lead to:
● Erosive esophagitis (erosion of the esophagus)
● Severe narrowing (stricture) of the esophagus
● Barrett’s esophagus (precancer of the esophagus)
● Problems with teeth, throat, and airway leading to the lungs
NaturCress® is not appropriate for people with gastric diseases, frequent heartburn or issues with the valve in the lower esophagus that is supposed to keep acid down in the stomach. But if your occasional heartburn is triggered by specific foods, meal size or by the time of day that you eat, then NaturCress® can help you.*
Seek immediate help if you experience severe chest pain or pressure, especially when combined with other signs and symptoms such as pain in the arm or jaw or difficulty breathing. Such chest pain may be a symptom of a heart attack. Don’t take this lightly. We want you as a customer for a long time.
NaturCress®️ is a dietary supplement for occasional heartburn and it’s not a drug. Occasional heartburn is common, especially after big meals, and usually is not serious. But sometimes, that burning sensation can indicate something more serious, such as ulcers, bleeding or an inflammation of the lining of the esophagus. Gastroenterologists recommend contacting your doctor’s office if your heartburn won’t go away after two weeks, you get it more than twice a week, you’re having trouble swallowing, or your heartburn is causing nausea and vomiting.
NaturCress® is effective for most healthy people with occasional heartburn from excess acid.* Its formula has a solid basis in science. Fully 89% of users were highly satisfied with their results in a clinical trial with 40 men and women. Their satisfaction increased over the four days of the trial. Your satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back, hassle-free. More product information here.
100% natural, NaturCress® is specially milled garden cress seed and the mineral nutrient, zinc. Garden cress seed has been a human food for thousands of years. No other heartburn relief supplement has garden cress seed. There is 960 mg of garden cress seed and 6 mg of elemental zinc in each two-capsule serving.
We test to make sure there is at least 3 mg of glucosinolate, the active component of the garden cress seed, in every serving of NaturCress. It and the zinc lasts at least two years if kept dry and at room temperature. There is a “use by” date printed on each bottle as they are filled. The capsules are vegan and our bottles are BPA-free.
Both the active components of NaturCress® signal the stomach lining to hold stomach acid where it is made and to not release it into the stomach. Each component does this differently. Together they help prevent acid from irritating the lower esophagus by lowering the amount of acid in the stomach. This protection lasts about 3 hours, depending upon how much you eat and drink after taking it. NaturCress works by coating the lining of your stomach (not through your bloodstream) so it acts quickly.
This coating of the stomach lining is why NaturCress works best if taken about 15 minutes before meals and bed with a glass of water, but you may take it after eating too. Since it is not working from your bloodstream, you can change your dose for every meal, including no dose. Trial size of NaturCress.

NaturCress® is not made with added GMOs, sugar, salt, soy, wheat, gluten, corn, seafood, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, artificial coloring, extracts or ingredients of animal origin. However, the facility where NaturCress is made processes the following ingredients for other client’s formulations: Sugar (coconut sugar), Dairy (bovine colostrum, whey protein), Shellfish (glucosamine from shellfish), Seafood (softgels with cod liver oil), Soy (lecithin softgels), Bee products (pollen, propolis, royal jelly) and Enzymes (bromelain, papain). So for these allergens there is the possibility of cross contamination even though the equipment and production areas are cleaned between products. No wheat and peanut processing are reported on the facility’s allergen statement of 11/1/19.
NaturCress capsules are made of cellulose, an organic plant compound, and are designed to dissolve quickly in the stomach. NaturCress is vegan and vegetarian. Its bottles are BPA-free.
No chemical extraction is used in making NaturCress®. The active compound in NaturCress’s garden cress seed is concentrated enough naturally that there is no need to reduce its bulk through extraction. There is enough in each dose as the seeds come from the field. The zinc is standardized at 6 mg of elemental zinc per serving.
“Safety concern is growing over the conventional use of chemical solvents, like hexane, in consumer foods and supplements. These solvents, while intended to be removed down to negligible levels, are gaining an increasingly “toxic” reputation.” (from “Botanical Ingredients: Extraction Methods“, by Robby Gardner, Nutritional Outlook, September 2011).
“No more heartburn. I have tried so many over-the-counter heartburn medicines and they don’t always work. When I got this (NaturCress) herbal supplement I had my doubts but I was willing to give it a try. You’re supposed to take two 15 minutes before your meal. For best results I needed to take them 25 minutes before my meal. Once I started that (timing) I stopped getting heartburn. Now I can eat pizza and spicy foods again. If you get heartburn I recommend giving this a try. You get 180 capsules and it’s an affordable option. This is a natural product. I will continue to purchase and take these supplements.” Amanda05, Willis, VA, September 12, 2020.
“Am very happy with the NatureCress® for heartburn. Seems like a lot of the food I enjoy will cause mild heartburn symptoms. Therefore, this has been a wonderful relief for me. Easy to take as well and fast acting. Take a couple of these before you eat a meal and you are good for a while. Thank you! Would definitely recommend this to anyone!!” Anitalw1, Southern, IL, September 14, 2020.
“Great! A few days ago I got NaturCress® and I have tried it 5 times and it is the best natural relief for heartburn that I have had, it is made in the United States with the best quality standards, it is easy to bring, it works fast and so far I have not had any allergic reaction… I recommend it because it really helps and it’s natural.” Sofiss, Denver, CO, September 13, 2020.
“NaturCress® works! Good packaging and easy to swallow. Love that it is all natural, drug free and free from allergens. I have been searching for a natural heartburn remedy and have found it. Works quickly too. I highly recommend it.” Lorelei555, July 7, 2020.
“I take NatuCress® and it works for me. Coffee and pizza trigger heartburn for me and now I can enjoy both without worry. I don’t like to take drugs so a natural solution like garden cress seed and zinc appeal to me.” CES100, May 5, 20202.

NaturCress® works for its intended purpose when too much stomach acid is irritating the esophagus. But surprisingly, having too little stomach acid is also associated with heartburn. About 2 percent of people have to little stomach acid overall, with a higher percentage the older you get, until it’s about 1/3 of those over 65 years old.
Try an apple cider vinegar supplement for occasional heartburn if you have low stomach acid. We sell capsules with cider vinegar. We have paired NaturCress with an apple cider vinegar supplement so you can test which works best for you. Or play the odds and try NaturCress first. If it doesn’t work we be glad to send you our cider supplement instead of a refund.
If neither NaturCress nor apple cider vinegar works for your occasional heartburn, consult your healthcare provider.
The innovative NaturCress® is very timely in light of news reports on negative side effects and suspected cancer-causing impurities of some popular OTC and prescription treatments for acid indigestion. One was even recalled by the FDA. Others may be habit-forming. Even occasional sufferers of heartburn are seeking natural alternatives like NaturCress.
Increase your peace of mind with drug-free NaturCress in your diet. You deserve safe heartburn relief. Here is our ♥️ Burn News Blog post with excerpts of articles and links to the full text about these health concerns.
NaturCress® does one thing well. It reduces acid secretion by the stomach. Competitive supplements include other herbs and probiotics that may not be needed or may interact with prescriptions. Digestion is complicated so the simplicity of NaturCress means that it is less likely to make problems worse. It also means that you don’t have to settle for the less-effective heartburn protection of more complicated or expensive formulas. NaturCress does one thing well instead of many things so-so.
Garden cress is a traditional farm crop so sensitive natural landscapes are not harmed by its collection, unlike rare herbs in other formulas. NaturCress has one of the longest return-for-refund period (90 days) of any heartburn supplement and its cost per dose is lower than many supplements.
Dr. Tushar Ray called Clyde Hanson one day over a decade ago to ask for help in evaluating the commercial potential of his forthcoming scientific paper on how the stomach lining works at the chemical level. He was still following the science and developing a new theory to better explain the process even though he was retired. In retirement he didn’t have access to the the patent and commercialization experts that he had when he worked at universities. Hanson worked for years with engineers and scientists in commercializing their inventions. Hanson and Ray worked together and NaturCress® is the product of that collaboration. NaturCress is an “overnight success” that was over a decade in the making.
Professor Tushar Ray, PhD. researched the dynamics of acid secretion in the stomach over his long career at the University of Texas, University of California-Berkley, and the SUNY Medical Center. His method of isolating tiny parts of these cells for study is still widely cited and used today.
Dr. Ray’s groundbreaking article on the effect of a glucosinolate derivative on stomach acid levels lay fallow until after his retirement. Then he spurred development of NaturCress as chief scientist for RayIsles. Tushar’s father was a medical doctor in India, exposing him to both western medicine and medicinal plants of the far east. As a result, NaturCress is both natural and scientific solution for occasional heartburn relief.
“Those of us seeking to avoid heartburn appreciate Dr. Ray’s work on NaturCress,” said Clyde Hanson, who co-founded RayIsles with Tushar. “He impressed me with his deep expertise.”
Tushar’s oldest son worked in his father’s university laboratory, but interestingly, he went on to become a professor of French culture and language instead of a bio-chemist like his father. But Tushar received several international awards for his poetry, so he could also relate to his son’s eventual professional field.

What does it mean that a supplement hasn’t been evaluated by the FDA?
RayIsles develops, makes and distributes dietary supplements, which fall into a different regulatory category than drugs. Under the federal Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires the standard disclaimer (above) for supplements that benefit a function of the human body (such as promoting digestive health). NaturCress contains traditional ingredients that are generally recognized as safe and therefore the FDA does not evaluate such supplements before they go to market.
