Gastro-Esophageal Reflux (GERD) is a very common disease affecting the upper digestive system. Even though Gastro-Esophageal Reflux is often asymptomatic, it can produce serious alterations of mucosae, pharyngitis and oesophagitis in the oral tract, leading to a diagnosis. Moreover, inflammation and ulcerogenic events occur and they are a consequence of the contact between mucosal cells and stomach acid solution or vapours.
MUCOSAVE® is a natural supporting treatment of GERD (patent pending), containing polysaccharides of Opuntia ficus indica and olive polyphenols. MUCOSAVE® showed mucoadhesive activity and wound-healing effect (thanks to Opuntia polysaccharides) and mucosal lenitive properties (thanks to olive biophenols).
Radiation therapies induce several skin side effects such as irritation, redness, burning, itching and necrosis. These skin reactions can severely affect the quality of life and daily activities of patients, especially those with a good chance of complete recovery, like women affected by breast cancer.
SKIN SAVE®, a blend of herbal extracts from Opuntia ficus indica (cladodes), Capparis spinosa (buds) and Olea europaea (leaves), is a cosmetic ingredient specifically developed to improve physiological cutaneous defence mechanisms against radiation-induced skin reactions, as demonstrated by a clinical trial published in Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology.
