Pharmacological properties


Linex contributes to the normalization of the intestinal microflora, which is due to the properties of its active components.

Live lactic acid bacteria are a normal component of the natural intestinal microflora; they are already present in the digestive tract of newborns. One capsule contains at least 1.2 x 10 7 live lyophilized lactic acid bacteria: Bifidobacterium infantis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Enterococcus faecium.

These bacteria play an important role in the biochemical processes of the body. Due to the fermentation of lactose, the pH is shifted towards the acidic side. In an acidic environment, the growth of pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic microflora is inhibited, and optimal conditions are provided for the action of digestive enzymes.

Other Linex effects:

  • participation in the synthesis of ascorbic acid, vitamins of group B, K (which increases the body's resistance to unfavorable environmental factors), as well as substances with antibacterial activity;
  • participation in the process of metabolism of bile acids and bile pigments;
  • an increase in the body's immune reactivity.

Indications for use

  • Children 2-12 years old: 1-2 capsules;
  • Children over 12 years old and adults: 2 capsules.

Frequency rate of admission - 3 times a day.
