REMMO® is different-

  • We are using 99.9% purest form of Esomeprazole in REMMO®. Thus, REMMO® ensures superb efficacy.
  • Each REMMO® pearlescent tablet contains 710-720 Esomeprazole MUPS pellets along with a granulated buffering agent, ensuring approx. 97% gastro-protection of Esomeprazole MUPS.
  • REMMO® pearlescent tablets use the smallest and most concentrated Esomeprazole MUPS pellets of 22.5% USP grade ranging from 250 microns in size. These micro-pellets act as “fluid” and reach into the absorption site of the intestine without interacting stomach’s food contents.
  • REMMO® is a “BUFFERED” formulation and acts through dual-mode of action – after taking the tablet, the buffering component is released and reacts with stomach acid & neutralizes within 5 minutes that lasts up to 30 minutes. Moreover, the buffering agent increases the pH level of the stomach to protect Esomeprazole MUPS from highly acidic gastric juice.
