Applying the rigorous methods of scientific research and thanks to modern technology, Aboca has developed the Poliprotect synergistic molecular complex of polysaccharides (molecular weight > 20,000 Da) and minerals (Limestone and Nahcolite) with mucoadhesive properties.
Physiological mucus is, essentially, composed of mucin and bicarbonate.
On the mucous membranes, mucin forms a barrier to gastric fluids; bicarbonate neutralizes any acid which may accidentally cross the barrier. Together, they protect the mucosa from the aggressive action of the stomach acids.
Poliprotect is composed of a polysaccharide component, which participates in the barrier effect, and a mineral component.
The action of Poliprotect is completed by the antioxidant properties of the flavonoid fraction, which counteract irritation due to free radicals. The protective film created by NeoBianacid Heartburn and Acid reflux not only acts as a barrier but also creates a micro-habitat which preserves the integrity and the function of the mucosae.
