How it works
The secret of Reflugea Forte lies in its totally natural formulation. Its selected active ingredients develop an effective synergy that allows for the control of the stomach acidity, the protection of the stomach walls and finally the support of good mood.
Mallow is the quintessential remedy plant for the stomach. In fact, its soothing and emollient properties are beneficial to the digestive tract mucosa. What does it mean? It means that Mallow active principles ensure the stomach and intestine wellbeing by creating a protective lining on the mucosa.
In fact, Mallow mucilage and its complex polysaccharides are indigestible and in aqueous solution they turn into a gel that forms a protective film on the mucosa of the digestive tract. Such vegetable film protects the mucosa from being damaged by chemical and mechanical agents as swell as bacteria.
It is a patented and trademark ingredient that combines Prickly Pear and Olive leaves extracts. The combination of the two plants results in an active ingredient that has remarkable emollient and soothing properties. Such properties are beneficial to the oropharyngeal mucosa (throat included) and to the digestive apparatus altogether. Besides, olive leaves also provide a good quantity of antioxidants.
Research studies confirm the beneficial effects of Mucosave® FG. Due to their physical-mechanical effects, Mucosave® FG active ingredients repair and sooth the digestive tract mucosa and are therefore beneficial in case of gastrointestinal disorders and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)1.
Mastiha resin, also known as the Chios mastic gum, is a resinous exudate from the bark of Pistacia lentiscus, an evergreen shrub of the Mediterranean region, mainly cultivated on the Greek Island of Chios. It is a 100% natural product, PDO-certified (Protected Designation of Origin). Its properties promote the correct functionality and wellbeing of the digestive tract and exhibit a protective action on the gastric mucosa cells.
Amla (Phyllanthus emblica) or Indian gooseberry, is one of the most important herbs in Ayurveda's pharmacopoeia, used to withdraw excessive heat from the digestive apparatus. It is the most effective natural active ingredient that regulates the stomach production of digestive acid. Amla exhibits antisecretory, anti-ulcer and cytoprotective properties on the digestive tract. In fact, it supports the normal physiological functions of the stomach by controlling hyperacidity (hyperchlorhydria, also with reflux) and protecting the epithelial cells of the gastric mucosa.
Reflugea Forte also contains selected Fig bud extracts. The Fig bud extract is traditionally used in gemmotherapy for its beneficial effects on the stomach, especially in case of complaints due to heavy stress and subsequent agitation.
Linden bud extract is also included in Reflugea Forte formulation. Linden bud extract has soothing and relaxing properties and is therefore recommended in case of nervousness, restlessness, anxiety and whenever stress and nervous tension occur.

Reflugea Forte proves to be effective already by itself. Yet, for a deeper and stronger action, you may want to combine it with:
- Intestinum Forte to support the bowel wellbeing,
- Salugea Colonsan Enhanced Formula to prevent the production of excessive gas in the bowel and promote the digestive functions,
- Salugea Organic Aloe Vera Juice or Organic Mangosteen Juice, both high in antioxidants, for a soothing and regulating action on the stomach and the intestines.
The Benefits of Healthy Habits
The wellbeing of your stomach also depends on your daily habits. That is why, should you experience stomach pain or discomfort, just try to stick to the recommendations hereafter.
- Stop drinking coffee or drink as little coffee as you can. You can take instead decaffeinated coffee, barley coffee or any other hot drink that does not contain nervines.
- Do not eat hot, spicy, salted or smoked foods; avoid eating food high in saturated fats (fried food, red meat, cold cuts, matured cheese, whole milk, rich sauces and condiments), as well as carbonated, sugary drinks.
- Do not eat fruits or sugary foods at the end of your meal. Eat some fruits as a snack between your main meals, better if cooked and of the alkaline type, such as bananas, almonds, apples and pears.
- Do not drink alcoholic drinks and slow down on smoking, better if you quit.
Supplements are not to be considered as a replacement for healthy diet and lifestyle. Keep out of reach of children under the age of three. Do not exceed the recommended daily dosage. The expiry date refers to the product intact, stored in a cool and dry place, away from heat and direct sunlight.

The acronym GERD stands for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
It is a debilitating disorder of the digestive tract. Unfortunately, it is rather widespread as it affects up to 33% of the population, youth included.
Such disorder is announced by specific symptoms:
- stomach acidity,
- impaired function of the esophageal sphincter cardia (the valve that closes the stomach at the top),
- acid burping,
- chest pain (right behind the sternum),
- globus sensation (the feeling of a lump in the throat),
- cough or throat irritation due to the acids flowing back into the oesphagus (reflux),
- discomfort generally increases when you are seated, lie down or shortly after your meals.
What causes reflux?
In a way, GERD is a consequence of today's lifestyle:
- the hustle and bustle of modern life combined with bad lifestyle and bad eating habits, like an excessive consumption of coffee, sugary fizzy and alcoholic drinks,
- permanent stress and nervous tension all day long, at work and at home,
- underlying medical conditions like hiatal hernia,
- weight gain.
And what are the solutions the market suggests?
Most of the supplements available on the market simply focus on temporarily buffering the stomach acidity.
Yet, such approach provides only a temporary solution. In fact, as soon as the buffering effect of the salts ends, you are back to square one!
A correct phytotherapeutic approach should:
- buffer stomach acids and regulate acid secretion,
- protect the stomach walls by lining them with a protection film,
- promote the regeneration of the gastric mucosa,
- relieve stress and emotional strain.
Considering all these parameters, Salugea has created Reflugea Forte, a mix of natural ingredients that not only provide immediate relief by buffering the stomach acids, but they are also effective on the long term by regulating the stomach acid secretion and regenerating the gastric mucosa.
Besides, also the emotional side of the disorder is taken care of. It is a matter of fact that body, mind and environment are inextricably intertwined.

Tests on rats revealed that Mallow active components have positive effects on ulcerative colitis. Researchers therefore suggest the use of this plant as an effective remedy for patients suffering from ulcerative colitis and to reduce the adverse effects of their medication.

A double-blind clinical study was carried out for two months on 118 people (male/female) split into two groups. The first group was treated with an anti-acid preparation combined with Mucosave® FG (Verum), the second group was treated with an antacid preparation that did not contain Mucosave® FG (placebo). At the end of the test, subjects treated with Verum (the antacid preparation containing Mucosave® FG) experienced a significant improvement of the GERD related quality of life (-56,5%) and a reduction of GERD symptoms (-59.1%) such as heartburn, acid regurgitation, nausea and cough, compared to the placebo group.

The electron microscope observation of the gastric mucosa protected by the mucilage of the prickly pear leaf has shown an anti-ulcer effect on animals. Most probably, the anti-ulcer effect on animals is due to the mucilage produced by the prickly pear leaves.

The results of tests on animals show that olive leaf extracts can prevent HCl / ethanol-induced gastritis by attenuating inflammation and oxidant/antioxidant imbalance. Hence, olive leaf extract polyphenols can be useful as a natural treatment against gastritis.
- Dabos KJ et al. : Is Chios mastic gum effective in the treatment of functional dyspepsia? A prospective randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial. J of Ethnopharmacology, 127 (2): 205–209.
The clinical study against placebo confirms the positive action of Mastiha Resin on dyspepsia due to gastric hyperacidity. Mastiha Resin active ingredients prove to be effective in reducing general stomach pain and, in case of anxiety, they also decrease the perception of dull ache in the upper abdomen and heartburn. Chios mastic therefore significantly improves symptoms in patients with functional dyspepsia, compared to placebo.
