Phycodol™ IQP LH 101, is a proprietary high quality alginate extract derived from the Laminaria sp, which is a type of brown algae that is structurally strong and flexible. Phycodol™ is scientifically validated to form a raft on top of the gastric juices within seconds, which acts as a mechanical barrier against reflux of stomach contents into the oesophagus. This provides fast soothing and long-lasting relief from heartburn and indigestion due to GORD (Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease).
The Laminaria sp used in Phycodol™ is harvested from selected rough seas in the Northern Hemisphere because brown algae that grow in more turbulent conditions produce alginates with better gel-forming capacities and stronger gelling networks that result in stronger raft formations. After careful selection of the Laminaria sp, it is then manufactured under the strictest quality control procedures, conforming to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) for medicinal products and ISO 9001:2008. Phycodol™ is produced using modern pharmaceutical technology and state-of-the-art equipment and undergoes more than 20 stages of processing to ensure its high quality and outstanding functionality under challenging gastrointestinal conditions. Every batch is also tested and certified to comply with stringent specifications.
Phycodol™ is a white to yellowish-brown, free-flowing powder which is almost odourless, with the ability to form a raft-like barrier without any pharmacological, immunological or metabolic action or effects on the human body. Phycodol™ is free from any animal or animal by-products.
