Acetaldehyde is particularly harmful if you are suffering from an anacidic stomach or chronic Helicobacter pylori infection, under antacid medication, or a smoker. Acetaldehyde has been classified by the WHO as a carcinogenic substance. Its main sources of exposure are heavy alcohol use and smoking.
Acetaldehyde is found naturally in many foods and beverages. It is particularly common in foods that are produced by a fermentation process, such as alcoholic beverages, vinegar, dairy products, home-brewed beer and mead. Acetaldehyde is also used as a food flavouring in pastries, fruit juices, soft drinks, sweets, desserts and dairy products.
Acetium capsules protect your stomach from acetaldehyde. Acetium contains L-cysteine, which is a natural amino acid. L-cysteine binds acetaldehyde and prevents its absorption into the body.
