Pharmacological properties

Hylak forte drops - a drug that normalizes the intestinal flora, pH and water-electrolyte balance in the intestinal lumen and stimulates the synthesis of epithelial cells of the intestinal wall.

The natural physiological microflora of the intestine can be significantly impaired due to external influences such as antibiotic therapy, radiation, surgical interventions on the stomach (Billroth II operation), and also as a result of malnutrition, which can sometimes stimulate excessive reproduction of pathogenic microbes. As a result, there is a feeling of heaviness, flatulence, diarrhea or constipation.

Numerous metabolic products of physiological intestinal microorganisms (producers of lactic acid, as well as gram-positive and gram-negative symbionts of the small and large intestines) introduced into the drops of Hylak forte contribute to the preservation of the physiological function of the intestinal mucosa and the restoration of its normal flora.

Due to the fact that Hylak forte drops contain biosynthetic lactic acid and its buffer salts, acidity in the intestine is normalized.

Volatile fatty acids, which are contained in the drug Hylak forte, make it possible not only to prevent, but also to restore the disturbed intestinal environment with infectious gastrointestinal diseases, they also contribute to the absorption of water and electrolytes (sodium, chlorine).

Hylak forte is not absorbed into the blood, it is excreted through the digestive tract.

Indications

 Digestive disorders, such as flatulence, diarrhea, constipation; during and after therapy with antibiotics and sulfa drugs, as well as radiotherapy; impaired hepatic metabolism; gastrointestinal disorders due to decreased acidity; chronic atrophic gastroenteritis ("senile intestine"); gastrointestinal disorders associated with climate change (in particular, a trip to warm countries); symptoms associated with chronic intestinal intoxication, such as nausea, circulatory disorders, tendency to rapid fatigue, etc.

The use of this drug is only a supportive measure. It can be used only in combination with other effective therapeutic measures. In particular, if the patient has diarrhea, the use of the drug Hylak forte does not replace the therapy of replenishing fluid loss and other measures, such as temporary abstinence from eating solid food (tea break).

After improvement, the daily dose can be halved.
