1 WHAT SAB SIMPLEX IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
Sab Simplex je protipěnivý přípravek zajišťující rozpad pěny jež brání vstřebávání plynů v žaludku a ve střevech. Tím umožňuje odchod plynů přirozenou cestou nebo jejich vstřebání stěnou střeva. V oddílech trávicího ústrojí je přítomen v různém množství také vzduch, resp. plyny, které se sem dostanou polykáním se stravou a také vznikají při rozkladné činnosti bakterií, přítomných v trávicím ústrojí. Spolykaný vzduch částečně odchází při říhání, plyny pak jsou částečně vstřebávány stěnou střev a nebo odcházejí konečníkem ven z těla.
Pokud je rovnováha shromažďování a výdeje plynů narušena, dochází ke tvorbě bublinek, které zpění hlenový povlak na stěně trávicí trubice, a ten pak zamezuje přirozenému vstřebávání a odchodu plynů. Toto je potom příčinou pocitu plnosti, plynatosti a napětí v břiše.
Increased gas production in the digestive tract contributes greatly to nutritional errors (high fat and protein in the diet, etc.).
Sab Simplex decomposes the bubbles in the foamed mucus of the intestinal wall, but is not absorbed and leaves unchanged by the intestines from the body.
- Sab Simplex can be used in the following conditions: flatulence, flatulence, feeling full due to accumulation of gases in the digestive tract, excessive swallowing of the air, which is manifested by pressure in the abdomen due to insufficient gassing. In these conditions, the product may be taken without the advice of an adult, including those over 60 years of age and pregnant or breastfeeding women, and may be given to children from three months of age.
- Children under three months of age can be given a prescription at the recommendation of a physician even in so-called three-month colics that show regular bouts of crying about half an hour after breastfeeding or feeding and may be (after exclusion of organic causes by a doctor) a manifestation of digestive disorder. These difficulties occur in the first three months after birth - hence the name of the three-month-old colic. One of the reasons for this is a milk diet that causes an increase in foam generation in the digestive tract for several hours, thus preventing absorption and gassing. This situation can then lead to painful bloating.
- It is only at the doctor's recommendation that the product can be used or given to children at increased gasity after surgery, after detergent poisoning (washing powder) and in the preparation of abdominal diagnostic tests (sonography, X-ray examination, endoscopy) to reduce the occurrence of shadows caused by gas.
