- Comments Off on Moms Meet Gutsy Chewy Product Review
I applied through Mom’s Ambassador Moms Meet to try this product and review it on my blog. I was happy when I received an email telling me I had been selected to try the Gutsy Chewy supplements and expect a package in the mail. Since I have been having such bad heartburn during my pregnancy I decided to give these a try. I normally use Tums, but if these were more effective or lasted longer I was all game for them.
Gutsy Products is an American company founded by Harvard trained dentist and Cleveland clinic trained gastroenterologist, Dr. Doug Haghighi.

They can be used for that after eating Queasy, Uneasy, Refluxy Feeling associated with common digestive discomforts.

I received a package in the mail of 6 tubes, 3 Citrus and 3 Wildberry tubes each containing 8 tablets. The next day I got another 2 tubes in the mail one Citrus and one Wildberry tube. I guess they either forgot to ship them all at once or had an oops when they were shipping them. When I got the tubes I was really interested to see what kind of tablets were in the tubes. Since the name is Chewy, I was thinking they would be some kind of chewy tablet. The directions say to chew the tablet for as long as possible. When I opened the tube and inspected the tablets I was totally wrong. They looked just like Tums only a little bigger.
Of course, that night I got heartburn again after eating dinner. This was the perfect time to try them. I ate two of the tablets and to my surprise they were gritty and powdery (just like Tums), not at all chewy like I imagined it would be. I had the Citrus flavored tablets and did not mind the taste at all. Almost immediately I noticed relief. I would say within 3-5 minutes. So in about half the time it takes for Tums to work for me. There was a cooling sensation in my throat and stomach. I was so happy and relieved when they worked. The relief from the Gutsy Chewy tablets was amazing. I was sure I discovered a miracle cure to my pregnancy heartburn problems.
About two hours later my heartburn came back. This is not something that normally happens with Tums. It was not just a small case of heartburn that returned but it was back with vengeance. I tried the Gutsy Chewy tablets again and they worked just as good as the first time. Maybe I didn’t take enough, maybe I had a really bad case of heartburn, or maybe they Gutsy Chewy tablets don’t work as well as Tums. I was not sure and went to bed for the night. The heartburn did not return and I was left to wonder.
The next night again I got heartburn after dinner and decided to give the Gutsy Chewy tablets another try. I tried the Wildberry flavored tablets and did not care for the taste at all. The Wildberry flavor reminds me too much of medicine, so I think I would pass on the Wildberry flavor and just get the Citrus flavor. I ate two tablets and again had almost instant relief from the heartburn. I loved that this relief was almost instantaneous. Two hours later, unfortunately, the heartburn came back. I decided at this point that these were not working for me and gave up.
I went back to my Tums for heartburn relief. I guess for me I would rather have 10 minutes of discomfort when I initially get heartburn then have it come back again and again in one night. For me the Gutsy Chewy tablets did not work. Now that I am not pregnant anymore, if I should get heartburn I think I would give them another try. I never had heartburn before I was pregnant and have not had it since, so I am not sure how much use I will get out of the tablets.
