FORT WORTH, Texas, August 8, 2016 — Vetoquinol USA is excited to announce that both the “Azodyl™” and “Vetoquinol” logos are imprinted on new opaque, acid-resistant capsules. The new acid-resistant capsules are produced from gellan gum, a hypoallergenic, microbial-origin gelatin with consistent dissolution characteristics to ensure optimal release into the intestine. The switch to custom imprinting onto the opaque capsules will present a more pharmaceutical appearance as well as reinforcing the Azodyl brand awareness. In addition, it improves consumer confidence by assuring authenticity and originality of the product.
Consider this; “How can the colon help maintain healthy kidney function?” Azodyl’s Enteric Toxin Reduction Technology may provide the answer. Enteric Toxin Reduction Technology is a patented process that utilizes carefully selected beneficial bacteria to metabolize circulating uremic toxins when they diffuse out of the blood and into the colon. When a buildup of nitrogenous waste occurs in the bloodstream, uremic toxins diffuse across the intestinal lining into the colon because of the extensive network of blood vessels surrounding it. Following a journey through the upper GI tract, carefully selected probiotic microbes are released from a protective, acid-resistant capsule into the ileocecal region of the colon and enteric toxin reduction begins. The microbes, which have a high affinity for the toxins, then metabolize them as nutrients. As they metabolize uremic toxins, the microbes begin to multiply and eventually are carried through the colon and out of the body.
