Why is Cartia’s Duentric coating so important?

Uncoated low dose aspirin is generally released in the stomach where it may cause irritation to the stomach lining and may also increase the risk of gastrointestinal ulcers.

Luckily, not all low dose aspirins are the same.

Cartia has a specially formulated Duentric coating, that prevents the aspirin from being broken down in the stomach.
Instead, the aspirin dissolves lower down in the intestines – which means less contact with the stomach lining and less risk of irritation.

The Duentric coating does not reduce the effectiveness of the aspirin.
