In the occurrence of heartburn that is one of the most frequent manifestations of the stomach and esophagus's diseases, it matters first of all, getting the contents of the stomach into the esophagus.
Drugs, neutralizing hydrochloric acid of gastric juice, are commonly used to eliminate heartburn.
One of them is medication Anti-heartburn. It provides rapid and sustained neutralization of superfluous hydrochloric acid of gastric juice, thereby it has a protective effect on the gastric mucosa.
Anti-heartburn neutralizes free hydrochloric acid in the stomach that leads to decrease of digestive activity of gastric juice. It has an absorbent and enveloping effect, reduces the impact of harmful factors on the mucous membrane.
Anti-heartburn provides prolonged local neutralization of gastric juice, which is continuously separated and reduces high content of hydrochloric acid in it. Aluminum hydroxide inhibits the secretion of pepsin, neutralizes a hydrochloric acid forming aluminum chloride, which is an alkaline environment of the intestine is converted to alkaline salts of aluminum. Magnesium carbonate and sodium also neutralizes hydrochloric acid, turning in magnesium chloride. Thus, there is counter to the effect of aluminum hydroxide, which causes constipation. Pectin and taurine that are found in the drug, participate in the formation of mucoid, antipeptic (антипептического) protective layer in esophagus, stomach and intestines. Absorbent properties of the drug can delete a variety of bacteria and harmful substances (bacteria, viruses, exogenous and endogenous toxins, gases that are formed due to pathological fermentation) in the gastro-intestinal tract.
The drug forms a protective layer, providing a uniform distribution on the gastric mucosa of active substances, and has a long-term local action without further carbon dioxide production, which in turn causes bloating, a feeling of heaviness in the epigastrium and secondary amplification of secretion of hydrochloric acid.
- functional disorders of the bowel, colitis;
- discomfort and pain in the epigastrium with errors in diet, after drinking coffee, nicotine, and alcohol.
