Description

The ingredients in Ipakitine act as phosphate binding agents and lower the absorption of phosphates from the intestines. Thus, in respect of phosphate restriction they can mimic or enhance the effects of a phosphate restricted food. There is also a reduction in the absorption of some uraemic toxins that can affect normal kidney function. Through this double action, Ipakitine supports normal kidney function.

Ipakitine contains: calcium carbonate – proven phosphate binding properties

Chitosan – derived from chitin, by a process of de-acetylation. Chitin is a natural substance, the main building material of exoskeletons of arthropods. Due to chitosan’s specific molecular properties, it acts as an absorbent in the intestines and thus lowers the absorption of certain substances that can be harmful to the kidneys, including phosphates and some uraemic toxins.
