Congenital enzymatic deficiency may also be a cause of pregnancy flatulence - not completely digested in the stomach and small intestine the food passes into the colon where decomposes with the evolution of large amounts of gases. All these factors can lead to dysbacteriosis - a reduction in the volume of the intestine of normal intestinal microflora, which is involved in digestion and increase in conditionally pathogenic microflora which breaks down food to produce large amounts of gases.

Aggregation of cells - it is their coalescence into a multicellular formation (unit). As a result of the aggregation of blood cells in the blood vessels formed clots - clots that obstruct the vessel. It is a defensive reaction of the body, which allows the body to avoid a large loss of blood by breakage of a blood vessel. But for various violations of blood clots occur in the blood vessels of the whole and it is very dangerous because the blood supply is blocked (as it brings with it nutrients and oxygen) to specific organs and tissues. That clots of blood vessels cause severe diseases such as myocardial infarction and stroke Stroke - a serious brain injury  Stroke - a serious brain injury

For pregnant women increased cell aggregation is doubly dangerous because it threatens not only the mother of complications in the internal organs, but also the child, since the clot can completely or partially block the blood circulation in the placenta - the main body through which the blood (and with it nutrients and oxygen) are fed to the fetus.

Even small blockage of the blood vessels of the placenta is fraught with serious complications for the child, especially the part of the brain - the body is very sensitive to lack of oxygen (hypoxia). The consequences of fetal hypoxia may be irreversible. Curantil relaxes the walls of small blood vessels, working on their muscles (vazodilyatiruyuschee action), which improves blood circulation and its propensity to aggregate. In this expansion of large blood vessels does not occur, thereby preventing complications such as sudden drop in blood pressure.
