Our aim was to develop an innovative product maintaining a well-defined mechanism on well-known basis.
Carbonate+ bicarbonate directly neutralize stomach acids developing carbon dioxide.
Alginate, a polysaccharide isolated from certain algae, when ingested reaches the stomach and gives promptly a viscous and light gel, which covers and protects the gastric mucosa.
Tamarind seeds are natural sources rich in mucilaginous polysaccharides, naturally providing a mucoadhesive barrier AGAINST ACIDS.
Synergistic association of alginate, with an extract of tamarind seed rich in mucilaginous polysaccharides, and the antacid “buffer” bicarbonate + carbonate can be an effective way to prevent the occurrences due to Hyperacidity and GERD.
Moreover, the extract can significantly reduce
-The total volume of gastric juice
-The pepsin activity
