Pepphysic drug is based on two digestive enzymes. Thanks to papain and fungal diastase, the digestion of carbohydrates and proteins is facilitated, and the absorption of these substances in the small intestine proceeds practically in full.
The process of hydrolysis of peptides and proteins supports papain, called the proteolytic enzyme. It is synthesized from purified dried cell sap, extracted from unripe papaya fruits. Hydrolysis of carbohydrates( starch, glycogen and substances of carbohydrate cleavage) to disaccharides is promoted by fungal diastasis.
Simethicone, a kind of "defoamer", weakens the surface tension of gas bubbles, which ends with their decay. The walls of the intestine absorb liberated gases, and the stimulated peristalsis of the intestine allows them to leave the body without hindrance.
The agent helps to reduce the symptoms of dyspepsia, gassing in the intestine, high gastric secretion.
This quick-acting medicine effectively helps patients who do not follow a diet. It is recommended as a means of providing emergency assistance. The effervescent form of the tablet allows it to dissolve rapidly in water.
