Properties:

Eucarbon is a mild laxative with prominent regulatory properties to the intestinal functions.
Eucarbon contains natural vegetable ingredients which are completely safe. In the intestine, charcoal adsorbs metabolic and bacterial toxins. It is an effective anti-gas medication that significantly reduces symptoms of bloating and abdominal discomfort.
The addition of senna and rhubarb hastens the elimination of the charcoal-toxins complex and reduces intestinal desorption of the drug.
