What people are saying…

Using Peptest, the high levels of pepsin in my saliva confirmed I was refluxing but also the levels involved and when it was happening.

Muriela (patient)

After taking Peptest, my results showed very high levels of pepsin, especially after my midday and evening meals.

Ian (patient)

Within 48 hours I received my results showing that I had high levels of pepsin present in my saliva.
