Firstly, Polygel by Shalina Healthcare is a combination of two widely used antacids. That is, dried aluminium hydroxide gel and magnesium hydroxide. Secondly, it contains the anti-flatulent agent, simethicone. As a result, it is helpful in acid indigestion, heartburn, sour stomach, gastritis, stomach discomfort due to excess gas, hyperacidity and ulceration in the digestive tract.
Firstly, the antacid benefits of Polygel are scientifically proven and well reported in medical literature. Secondly, the antacids present in Polygel offer a fast and longer-lasting calming effect on stomach acidity. In addition, simethicone helps to remove any trapped gas.
Polygel demonstrated the highest Acid Neutralizing Capacity (ANC, a marker of antacid strength) in scientific research studies. In addition, it displayed a longer Buffering Capacity (a marker of the duration of antacid effect) compared to other antacids.
Polygel is a balanced combination of two antacids. This means it contains these antacids in equal amounts. Therefore, it reduces the risk of side effects like loose stool or constipation.
The ingredients of Polygel suspension calm down stomach acid and relieves trapped gasses. Most importantly, the bloodstream does not absorb much of it during this process. Consequently, this characteristic makes Polygel a suitable antacid treatment for pregnant or heart patients. On the other hand, the bloodstream absorbs antacids containing sodium bicarbonate in higher concentrations.
Polygel suspension offers a superior tasting experience compared to other antacid formulations.
