RefluSTAT contains alginates and carbonates for a quick and efficient mechanical blockage of the return of gastric juice into the oesophagus. The action mechanism is as follows: when the product comes into contact with the acidic pH values of the stomach, sodium alginate (natural polymer extracted from brown algae) is precipitated to form a gel. Meanwhile, the carbonates present in the product release carbon dioxide that allows the gel to rise and form a plug. It represents the physical barrier and prevents the return of gastric juice to the oesophagus. In addition, sodium bicarbonate helps in reducing gastric acidity.
RefluSTAT reduces symptoms such as heartburn, heartburn during pregnancy, the return of acid from the stomach into the oesophagus, indigestion, cough and irritation of the throat and pharynx quickly and efficiently.
