For weight loss
Allochol also take to lose weight. During his admission, a sufficient amount of bile is supplied to the intestines, which helps digest food and remove the remains of food that are at the stage of putrefaction or fermentation. The administration of the drug also has a beneficial effect on other organs of the digestive system, improving the digestion process as a whole.
When the gastrointestinal tract starts to work normally, toxins and slags are removed from the body, which decompose under the influence of bile. Due to this, the metabolism is restored and the excess weight goes away.
Allochol for weight loss take 1 tablet after meals 3-4 times a day for a month. Between courses, an interval of 3 months should be observed, continuous use of the medication can lead to diarrhea or constipation in chronic form.
During treatment should refrain from drinking alcohol. Alcoholic drinks increase the secretion of gastric juice and motor activity of the intestine, and also increase the production of bile. Drinking alcohol along with the medicine can lead to diarrhea.
Another reason why it is not recommended to drink strong drinks is spasms of biliary tract sphincters, which will create an obstacle to the outflow of bile. One sign of the closure of sphincters will be severe pain in the right hypochondrium.
