Melcalin® is a line of food supplements produced by BioTekna Biomedical Technologies specifically designed for the recovery of the acid-base balance, of the metabolic and neuroimmuno-endocrine function, for the recovery of medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) and for the achievement of well-being.

Melcalin® is a line of food supplements designed by merging the knowledge acquired from tradition, from physiology, from scientific literature, knowledge of neuroimmuno-endocrinology and metabolism, medically unexplained symptoms MUS as well as by studies on large populations of the body composition; the mix of these elements has created a line of products useful not only to supplement the deficiencies of vitamins and minerals that can occur due to poor eating habits and lifestyle but also to intervene in case of medically unexplained symptoms (MUS ) (see Stress, medically unexplained symptoms, chronic inflammation), to recover the acid-base balance or the metabolic and neuroimmuno-endocrine function.

The ingredients of Melcalin supplements were chosen by evaluating the active substances with documented biological activity and carefully analysing the dosage and the proportions between the components within the formulations, a certified production chain is guaranteed and checks are carried out on each production batch in order to ascertain the conformance requirements, and finally, last but not least, it should be added that most of the supplements are gluten and lactose free.

The individual products have been designed considering also the PRAL (Potential Renal Acid Load) (see PRAL, GL, inflammation and stress: clinical evidence), therefore, where possible the formulation, the effect of the active compounds was combined with substances with a negative PRAL (buffer support) in order to supplement its positive anti-inflammatory effects.

The products of the Melcalin line covering several areas: issues related to the nervous system, the gastrointestinal system, the muscular system, the bone system, the cardio-vascular and metabolic system as well as inflammatory disorders.

It is well known that the simple supplementation of minerals can not lead to any benefit if the relationship between the individual elements in physiology is not evaluated: symptoms such as tachycardia, fatigue, loss of strength, cramps, fibromyalgia, abdominal bloating, heartburn, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, irritability and mood disorders are linked to imbalances in nerve conduction, in particular to an alteration of the relationship between potassium and magnesium; in this case the simple supplementation with the two minerals is not enough to solve the problem, it is necessary to intervene with supplementation made to restore the correct relationship between the two minerals, and then to re-establish a correct action potential.

The same situation occurs for the treatment of pathologies of a inflammatory chronic systemic nature such as autoimmune diseases (eg. Atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatic, fibromyalgia, allergic rhinitis, asthmatic forms, multiple sclerosis): the intake of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA) has proven to be particularly suitable for the suppression of inflammatory processes due to the inhibition of the proinflammatory eicosanoids synthesis, however, what makes effective the product is not only the presence of EPA and DHA but especially the ratio of the two fatty acids in addition to the benefits of the anti-inflammatory action of Hops.

The Melcalin line will also appeal to more specific problems such as osteoporosis: a proper diet that is able to lower the acid load together with supplements designed specifically for bone mass are an effective action lasting over time; the cardio-vascular prevention is an other topic on which we focused: preventing cardio-vascular events regularizing the lipid profile with plant-based supplements and improving vascular tone and the microcirculation is a winning strategy in patients with cardiovascular risk but it has shown to lead to significant benefits in terms of improving the well-being even in people who suffer only of fatigue and swelling of the lower limbs.

Melcalin products include multimineral supplements ideal for the summer, for athletes or for all individuals who practice physical activities to ensure an adequate hydrosaline supply, providing greater strength and performance in physical activity and to prevent injury made easier by the condition of acidosis.

Integration with Melcalin supplements is an exceptional aid for the recovery of patients with medically unexplained symptoms in addition to being an excellent tool in case of inflammatory diseases and a valuable support for the cardio-vascular protection and integration in sports.
