Acts against the dysfunction of the intestine in diarrhea
A wide variety of bacteria live in a healthy intestine and together form a healthy intestinal flora. If pathogens get into the intestine, they try to settle in the mucous membrane and cause inflammation. To get rid of the germs, the intestinal wall releases water, electrolytes and mucus into the intestines. The intestinal contents are liquefied and excreted as diarrhea. Lopedium acute for acute diarrhea reduces the increased bowel movement. This gives the body more time to absorb water and electrolytes. The chair can solidify again. At the same time, the pathogens can be fought by the immune system.
