Aluminum hydroxide


Where is Aluminum hydroxide found?

Aluminum hydroxide is the hydroxide salt form of aluminum designed for oral ingestion. Aluminum hydroxide is used for the relief of heartburn, sour stomach, acid indigestion, stomach ulcers, peptic ulcer pain, and to promote the healing of peptic ulcers. Aluminum hydroxide is sometimes used to treat, control, or manage high levels of phosphate in the body. Aluminum hydroxide is also used with a low phosphate diet to prevent the formation of phosphate urinary stones. Aluminum hydroxide is also found in personal care products and industrial applications.
