Lactulose / A06A D11
667 mg of Lactulose per 1 ml of the preparation.
NORMOLACT contains lactulose, a synthetic derivative of lactose. It is not metabolized within the stomach and small intestine because of lack of appropriate enzymes and it remains practically unchanged. In the colon lactulose is metabolised by bacterial enzymes to short chained fatty acids mainly lactic and acetic acid as well as methane and hydrogen. This effect leads to a decrease of the pH-value and an increase of the osmotic pressure in the colon. This causes stimulation of peristalsis and an increase of the water content of the faeces, which improves physiological defecation. As prebiotic, lactulose stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacteria, which inhibit the growth of intestinal pathological flora (Clostridium and E. coli), thus, decreasing amounts of toxic products of their metabolism. Therefore, Normolact has a laxative action and normalizes intestinal functions.
- constipation: regulation of physiological functions of the intestine;
- conditions requiring to facilitate defecation (hemorrhoid, colon or anorectal surgery);
- portal-systemic encephalopathy (PSE): treatment and prevention of hepatic coma and precoma.
