EnteroGast promotes solidification of the feces and supports the function of the intestine in three phases: The English Oak, with its astringent properties, prevents too much fluid from entering the intestine. Psyllium husks bind free liquid thereby solidifying the feces. The intestinal bacteria "Enterococcus faecium" that are present in EnteroGast promote the build-up of healthy intestinal flora.
Enterococcus faecium (Probiotic bacterial cultures)
Enterococcus faecium cultures colonize the intestine and thus help to naturally replenish the intestinal flora. The regulation of intestinal peristalsis is facilitated by Enterococcus faecium cultures. Probiotic cultures, such as Enterococcus strains, also exert an inhibitory effect on pathogenic intestinal bacteria: The cultures influence the adhesion ability of the pathogenic intestinal bacteria by altering the luminal pH value. The competition between probiotics and pathogenic bacteria for binding sites or receptors on the intestinal epithelium further contributes to the inhibitory effect. This is particularly important with Giardiasis, because the natural intestinal flora displaces the Giardia. Furthermore, probiotics support the intestine in the production of a bio-film that prevents pathogens from attaching to and penetrating the intestinal mucosa.
Oak bark (Quercus robur cortex)
The pedunculate oak bark is rich in various tanning agents which lead to a surface densification (astringent effect) of the intestinal mucosa. Less water is released into the intestine and the intestinal contents return to a more normal, firmer form.
Rhatany extract (Krameria lappacea radix)
Similar to oak bark, rhatany roots contain a large amount of tannins (mainly catechols and proanthocyanides).
Psyllium (Plantago ovata)
The husk of the Indian psyllium has a strong natural swelling effect. The seed can absorb up to 40 times its own weight in water. Once in contact with water, it forms a protective layer of mucus. This coats the lining of the stomach and esophagus like a film. In the intestine, psyllium husks bind excessive fluid. The feces is thus bound and stays in the intestine longer. Therefore, bowel movement can be regulated in a natural way.
