How does Nexafed block pseudoephedrine extraction?

Nexafed utilizes MainPointe’s Impede® technology, a unique polymer matrix, which incorporates inactive ingredients to significantly disrupt the extraction and conversion of pseudoephedrine to methamphetamine. If abusers try to dissolve Nexafed to extract the pseudoephedrine to make methamphetamine, the polymers will form a thick gel to block that extraction.1
