Alginic acid and soluble alginate salts have been applied for many years in the treatment of anti-reflux.  When reaching the stomach, alginates react to produce an acid gel.  This then reacts with calcium carbonate to produce a buoyant gel/foam or ‘gastric raft’, which provides a mechanical barrier against stomach reflux.  Gastric rafts provide cost effective, immediate relief to consumers.  Furthermore, these rafts can potentially be combined with other medicines to achieve longer lasting label claims.
  • Immediate relief
