Pharmacological properties


Maxilac is a synbiotic (probiotic + prebiotic) - a complex that includes probiotic (9 cultures of beneficial bacteria at a concentration of 4.5 × 10 9 CFU in 1 capsule) and prebiotic (oligofructose) components for correcting disorders of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), in including those caused by taking medications.

Probiotics are living microorganisms that have a beneficial effect on human health by improving the composition or enhancing the activity of normal intestinal microflora.

Prebiotics are food components that have a positive effect on the body due to selective stimulation of growth and / or an increase in the biological activity of beneficial bacteria in the intestine.

Synbiotics are ingredients that are a combination of pro- and prebiotics that mutually enhance the effect on metabolism in the human body.

The drug, by normalizing the qualitative and / or quantitative composition of the intestinal microflora, helps to eliminate its functional disorders, such as diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, vomiting, flatulence, nausea, belching, and others. The effect of Maksilak is due to the action of beneficial microorganisms and active substances that make up its composition:

  • bifidobacteria: ensure the normal processes of parietal digestion, prevent the growth and activity of pathogenic microflora, help to strengthen the immune system, help to reduce the pH of the food mass;
  • lactobacilli: inhibit the growth of pathogenic microorganisms, are involved in the processing of lactose into simple sugars, which is especially important for people suffering from lactase deficiency, milk and dairy products intolerance;
  • oligofructose: activates the reproduction of microbes beneficial to the body and inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria of external origin, helps to improve intestinal function and reduce its pollution with toxins, enhances peristalsis, removes toxins, helps prevent diarrhea, constipation.

Thanks to the use of the innovative production technology MURE (Multi Resistant Encapsulation), the bacteria contained in the capsule are protected from contact with acidic stomach contents, bile salts and digestive enzymes. The predominant part of probiotic bacteria Maksilak is not destroyed in the stomach, but enters the intestine, which ensures the restoration of the gastrointestinal microflora.
