What enterol and how it works

Enterol contains Saccharomyces boulardii - yeast, which at one time were allocated A. Bulardi of tropical plant litchi. Living in the twenties of the last century in Indochina, the French scientist pointed out that the local population to cope with a variety of intestinal infections using peel lychees. The study of these fruits led to the identification of micro-organisms living on the surface, which later became known as Saccharomyces boulardii.

After forty years of Saccharomyces boulardii formed the basis of drug enterol produced by the French pharmaceutical company Biocodex. To do this, Saccharomyces boulardii was lyophilized using the freeze and phase-out drying, giving these organisms stability and ability to withstand any infectious agents. It is believed that even the cholera vibrio is sensitive with respect to Saccharomyces boulardii.

A special feature of this drug is that it can be effective in intestinal infections of any origin. Some infectious agents is sensitive to this drug - a bacterial infection pathogens (staphylococci, E. coli, Shigella, Salmonella), fungal (fungi genus Candida) and protozoa origin (eg, the agent of amoebic dysentery). A case of intestinal infections of viral origin curative effect Enterol Enterol - stop the development of an intestinal infection  Enterol - stop the development of an intestinal infection
   manifested by stimulation of local immunity Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults  Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults
   and neutralizing the action of toxins.

Saccharomyces boulardii in the intestine secrete a lot of enzymes that neutralize toxins and infectious agents to suppress their livelihoods. This leads to an improvement of bowel function in general. As a result of recovering the normal state of the intestinal walls, including the area located in lymphoid tissue (lymphoid tissue is the basis for immunity). Lymphoid tissue begins to actively produce immune cells and immunoglobulins - antibodies Antibodies - "soldiers' immunity  Antibodies - "soldiers' immunity
 Aimed at the destruction of infectious agents. Basically it produces immunoglobulin A, which is located in the intestinal mucosa and prevents penetration of infection into the bloodstream.

Which diseases can be taken enterol

Enterol - it is a safe drug that diarrhea of ​​any origin can begin to take on their own.

   and so on) may help enterol without any additional drugs.

But if the condition worsens, the temperature rises and the person loses a lot of liquid, then hope that enterol cope with this disease, there is no point, in such cases, a comprehensive drug treatment, sometimes even in the hospital. Therefore, in such cases, you should call the doctor. If the diarrhea has started a child, a doctor should be called anyway, because sometimes a mild disease may initially increase dramatically and lead to dehydration of the child, and this is a very serious complication, which is the main cause of death of children from intestinal infections.

Enterol may be included in any comprehensive treatment of intestinal infections. He combined with any drugs except antifungal, so the difficult runs intestinal candidiasis when prescribed oral antifungal agents, enterol not apply.

From prevention to appoint enterol while traveling when the diarrhea can cause not only an infection, but also digestive disorders caused by the unaccustomed food and water, characterized by the composition of the salts that people used to eat at home.

Apply enterol well as dysbiosis - a violation of the relationship between the useful and opportunistic pathogens in the gut, as well as chronic bowel - cleansing of toxins and decomposition products of tissue helps to improve the flow of these diseases.

Espumizan during pregnancy: to prevent blisters

 Espumizan during pregnancy
 In pregnancy, women are often concerned about the bloating. This symptom occurs in pregnancy almost every woman. Sometimes the swelling is small, but in some cases it becomes so strong that significantly worsens the condition of the pregnant woman.

 Espumizan during pregnancy: to prevent blisters

Why it occurs during pregnancy bloating

Throughout pregnancy a woman's body, a large number of the female sex hormone progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
 . The main task of progesterone - suppress premature contractions of the muscle fibers of the uterus, because the muscle contraction of the uterus can occur miscarriage Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?  Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?

But our body is designed so that the nerve branches that go to the uterus, are intertwined with the nerve branches that go to the organs of the gastrointestinal tract, so the suppression of motor activity of the muscles of the uterus will cause similar changes in the gastrointestinal tract.

Already in the first weeks of pregnancy, a woman will feel the changes in the digestive system. There are locks, which she had before pregnancy could have been avoided. This suggests that the food barely moving through the intestines, as the bowel muscles do not help it move. Constipation, stagnation of feces in the intestine and the constant re-absorption of toxic products of metabolism Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
   in the blood causes the phenomenon dysbiosis (a decrease in the amount of beneficial microflora in the gut and increase in volume of conditionally pathogenic), violation of the digestive process which manifest wrong splitting of food to produce large amounts of gases.

How to reduce the phenomenon of flatulence

Output of the situation can prompt a doctor, after another inspection of the pregnant woman. The fact that a pregnant woman is by no means impossible to take medicines (including herbal) which could increase the motor activity of the gastrointestinal tract. In fact it can cause increased locomotor activity and uterine muscle.

Therefore, most of laxatives and antigas medications during pregnancy is contraindicated.

Regarding Espumizan, it has virtually no effect on the state of smooth muscles of the digestive organs, and hence the uterine muscle. This drug is not completely absorbed into the blood and "operates" only in the intestinal lumen. Espumizan called defoamer, and it actually suppresses foam, which was formed by the fact that small gas bubbles are filled with mucus and faeces found in the intestinal lumen. Under the influence of Espumizan small bubbles burst, turning into a large gas bubbles that move more easily through the intestines. Also during the advance part of the gases absorbed in the intestine and the remainder discharged outside without any problems through the rectum.

Should I take Espumizan or better to endure the pain associated with colic? The final answer to this question can be a doctor. But given the fact that Espumizan not absorbed into the bloodstream and causes an increase in motor activity of smooth muscle, its use still stands.

Espumizan does not require constant use, a drug that is required in an emergency, when a pain, why endure the pain, if it can be removed? Nothing positive pain with intestinal colic with no carries, a woman from the state that it will suffer the pain does not improve. In contrast, severe pain can disrupt the central nervous system, and from it, are known to depend on the state of the whole organism. Therefore, consult your doctor, buy Espumizan not suffer pain.

Contraindications Espumizan only if you are hypersensitive to the components of the drug and bowel obstruction. As a side effect the producers say the possible appearance of allergic reactions in the form of various skin rash, angioedema and even anaphylactic shock. But all this happens very rarely.

How to apply Espumizan during pregnancy

Espumizan taken only when signs of bloating and intestinal colic. In this case, a woman may take one - two capsules Espumizan. Constantly Espumizan Espumizan - rapid release of gas  Espumizan - rapid release of gas
   do not accept. It should also be remembered that Espumizan can not be taken with other drugs - it may interfere with their absorption in the intestine. If the designated number of medicines, including Espumizan for emergencies, it is necessary to divide them welcome, making between them a break. Nor can we accept Espumizan simultaneously with drugs that reduce gastric acidity.

A pregnant woman should clearly know that no matter how harmless or was a drug (eg, the same Espumizan), it can be taken only with the permission of the doctor.
