Pain & Inflammation
How it works
The way in which it works is unclear and thought to involve three actions: 1.Anti-inflammatory action, which blocks the production and effect of certain substances in the body (cyclooxygenase, prostaglandins and others), which are involved in producing inflammation.2.Bacteriostatic (anti-bacterial) action, which prevents the growth of several kinds of bacteria which are possibly involved in inflammation.3.Immunosuppressive action (which reduces a patient’s overly active immune response, which has been linked to inflammatory diseases).All of these actions likely work together to reduce symptoms of gut inflammation, diarrhea, swelling and bleeding.
