According to the instruction, the Bobotik is shown:

  • Newborn with enhanced gas generation in the gastrointestinal tract. Intestinal spasms torment the toddlers in the process of adaptation with 3-4 weeks of life. The reason for this is increased gas formation in the gastrointestinal tract, since the digestive system is not yet ready to digest food and is not populated with the necessary amount of intestinal bacteria. Lactobacilli, which enter the stomach with mother's milk, cope with the digestion of milk to about 3 weeks of life, but the amount of food increases, and undigested residues are fermented. The gases released at this time cause bloating, accompanied by pain. The number of gas bubbles in the gastrointestinal tract can increase and by swallowing air during the feeding of the baby. The active substance Bobotika - simethicone, destroys the formed gas bubbles and promotes their removal from the body, and also prevents the formation of new ones. Part of the broken gas formations are absorbed into the walls of the gastrointestinal tract, the rest are excreted naturally.
  • To prevent foam formation and image clarity in diagnostic studies of the abdominal cavity and pelvic organs such as gastroscopy, radiography, duodenoscopy, sonography. The bobotik reduces gas formation, which makes the image more clear in diagnostic studies of the intestine.
