Did You Know...IX Resin is the Key to "Time-Release" Formulations in Medicine, So Your Body Gets a Nice Even Dose?
Drug manufacturers are looking for a solution for their products to release dosages at a predetermined rate to maintain a constant drug concentration for a specific period. Specifically, they are using ion exchange resinates for antihistamines, cough medicine and pain management products. This slow-release effect produced by resinates provides better treatment outcomes for longer periods, reduces the occurrence of side effects and can minimize the multiple doses needed throughout the day.
Resins are milled to powdered form and bind with the active ingredient by creating a chemical bond to help control the release.
