- Aluminium hydroxide deters bacterial growth and prevents infection by creating a hydrophilic, acidic layer over the irritation.
- Magnesium hydroxide strengthens gastric and esophageal sphincters as well as the intestinal mucosal barrier.
Magnesium hydroxide used as a laxative and antacid. Simethicone
Aluminum hydroxide promotes macrophage phagocytosis by upregulating the NLRP3-inflammasome, increasing antigen uptake. Antigens are aggregated around the molecule, enabling the repository effect and preventing degradation.
Magnesium hydroxide (laxative) acts by increasing the osmotic effect in the intestinal tract and drawing water into the colon to create distension, which results in an increase in peristaltic movement.
