Description
Digestant, cholerectic, spasmolytic, and anti-flatulent.
Properties/Actions
Spasmo-Digestin is a well balanced combination with specific digestive, cholerectic, sapsmolytic and antiflatulent properties. Spasmo-Digestin provides the body with papain, the proteolytic enzyme, in addition to sanzyme 3500 which is a multienzyme complex containing mainly protease, amylase, lipase, and cellulase. These enzymes act upon food contents of the GIT and catalyze their conversion into simpler and easily digestible and absorbable components. Spasmo-Digestin therefore brings to completion hydrolysis of proteins into peptones and small peptides; starch into dextrins and simpler sugars; fats into fatty acids and glycerol, and cellulose into absorbable matter. Spasmo-Digestin also exerts choleretic effect through sodium dehydrocholate which improves the flow of bile necessary for emulsification and digestion of fats. The spasmolytic effect of Spasmo-Digestin is due to dicyclomine hydrochloride which rapidly and effectively relieves spastic pain of the GI musculature and intestinal hypermotility. The anitmuscarinic and direct spasmodic ations of dicyclomine hydrochloride account for its high efficacy in irritable bowel syndrome (spastic colon). The antiflatulent effect of Spasmo-Digestin is due to simethicone, the powerful defoaming agent. Simethicone reduces surface tension of gas bubbles int he GIT causing them to coalesce and be easily expelled. At the same time, simethicone prevents formation of mucus-surrounded gas pockets in the GIT. These properties collectively makes Spasmo-Digestin the drug of choice for rapid relief of indigestion. GI spasms and flatulence.
