Many thanks to MomsMeet for selecting me to test and review Boiron’s Acidil Meltaway homeopathic tablets. I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.
I always enjoy testing natural, homeopathic, and plant-based products and usually enlist the help of the family (if and as appropriate). It was no different this time, although the test subjects for this program were limited to me and my husband.
First, let me note a few things about the product and the company itself and then move on to my experience with the product.
Boiron was founded 85 years ago by twin brothers and pharmacists Jean and Henri Boiron, dedicated to developing homeopathic medicines for their patients. Today, Boiron is one of the worldwide leaders of homeopathic medicine. In fact, Boiron is still operated by the Boiron family and the company continues as an independent pharmaceutical laboratory that performs quality manufacturing of products using only responsible environmental practices. Boiron is also committed to educating the general public about the many benefits homeopathic products have to offer and the importance of ensuring modern medicine can heal without causing any harm.
Boiron USA is the US subsidiary and complies with the FDA’s requirements for each product.
For its products, Boiron sources over 1,000 botanical substances, including substances such as Arnica montana and Calendula officinalis, and sources these from botanists and harvesters who follow strict environmental protection rules and also take good care to preserve the plants and the land on which they grow. For any minerals or chemicals used in the products, Boiron ensures that such are acquired from natural sources, such as oyster shells or purified chemical stocks.
The sourcing is no different for the Acidil Meltaway Tablets, ensuring a clean product.
In terms of features and ingredients, Acidil Meltaway Tablets literally melt in your mouth to relieve occasional heartburn, indigestion, bloating, and/or upset stomach. It is made with plant-based active ingredients and can be taken on a full or an empty stomach. A short summary of features:
The active ingredients are:
And the inactive ingredients are just as simple and natural:
As for how to take Acidil if you experience heartburn, indigestion, bloating, or an upset stomach – follow the simple directions:
Luckily, I almost never experience heartburn or indigestion – there are some foods that trigger this for me, but I stay away as much as possible. Thus, this makes it difficult to compare other products to Acidil in terms of my personal experience with each – but what I can say with confidence is that my experience with Acidil has been great!
I did decide to indulge just a bit in some no-nos (in my case, pizza with tomato sauce), resulting, as expected, in some heartburn, but taking Acidil as directed (see above) helped alleviate the discomfort fairly quickly, without side effects or any unnecessary ingredients.
The tablets dissolved pretty fast and did not have any discernible taste (or maybe nothing too apparent as it is under the tongue where there are almost no taste buds). It did not feel medicine-like or chalky, and did not have any aftertaste either.
Overall, Acidil is very easy to take and is a relatively quick solution to certain stomach problems. If I do indulge again, I will be certain to have a box of Acidil around, just in case!
While staying away from so-called trigger foods is the easiest solution (and that is what I usually do), indulging here and there is not too bad (who does not need a bit of comfort especially during these times!), especially if we restyle our “trigger comfort food” and make it a Comfort Food Without the Discomfort!
My restyled comfort food is pizza without any tomato-sauce and with a cauliflower mixed crust – so there is decidedly less flour – but still keeping the Acidil handy!
