Description

Probifor Pharmacodynamics
BIOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
Antidiarrheal action of the drug is due to the high concentration of bifidobacteria (Bifidobacterium bifidum № 1) sorbed on particles of activated charcoal, which are antagonists of a wide range of pathogenic (shigella, salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, etc.) and conditionally pathogenic microorganisms (protists, Klebsiella etc.).
Antiinfective effect of the drug is enhanced by sorption of bifidobacteria on charcoal particles which leads to accelerated normalization of gastrointestinal tract microbiocenosis, activation of restorative processes in mucous membranes and increasing anti-infective resistance of the body.                                                                    Antitoxic effect of the drug is provided by rapid repopulation of the intestine microcolony bifidobacteria, the restoration of normal microflora, which prevents the penetration of toxins in the internal environment of the body and, as a natural biosorbent, accumulates a significant amount of toxic substances coming from outside or formed in the body. Bifidobacteria in high concentrations activate intestinal parietal digestion, synthesis of vitamins and amino acids, enhance the protective function of the intestine and the body’s immune defense
