Composition and use

This preparation contains no chemistry and synthetics. It consists of live bifidobacteria sorbed on activated charcoal particles and lactose.

Bifidobacteria are curved sticks, slightly branched at the ends, very useful for the baby's body. Getting into the digestive system, they perform several functions at once: they saturate the intestine with a useful microflora, reduce allergic reactions, stop and eliminate putrefactive processes, and also have a restorative effect.

The sorption of bifidobacteria on activated carbon particles expands their positive effect on the formation of the newborn's gastrointestinal tract:

  • accelerates the process of regeneration of the intestinal mucosa;
  • activated wall digestion;
  • due to association in the colony, increases the permeability of beneficial bacteria through the acidic environment of the stomach.

Lactose, or in another way milk sugar, favors the development of the central nervous and cardiovascular systems and is a nutrient medium for beneficial bacteria in the intestine.

The drug is safe for newborns, including prematurity.
