Acetium capsule

Nearly a hundred thousand Finns suffer from damage to and functional disorder of the gastric mucosa (atrophic gastritis) caused by a Helicobacter pylori infection or autoimmune disease, which among other things leads to an acid-free stomach. 

An acid-free stomach is the primary risk factor in gastric cancer. According to recent research, it is also a significant risk factor in oesophageal cancer.

Additionally, nearly half a million Finns use regular medications which reduce gastric acid secretion while also causing an acid-free stomach.

Acetium® is a CE marked product developed and patented by Biohit Oyj. It is intended for persons with a low-acid or anacidic stomach.

Acetium capsules include 100mg of natural amino acid as an active ingredient. L-cysteine reacts with acetaldehyde, forming harmless 2-methylthiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid (MTCA) and thus reducing the amount of acetaldehyde in the stomach.

Acetium capsules include matrix granules in which the L-cysteine is bound with a matrix former (Eudragit® RS) and  an inactive excipient. This causes L-cysteine to be released at a sustained rate and locally in the stomach - exactly where acetaldehyde is formed.
