Capsules of Atsipol have a pronounced antimicrobial action against pathogenic intestinal microflora, which, multiplying, cause digestive disorders and infectious diseases.
The suppression of the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the intestine occurs due to the multiplication of lacto and bifidobacteria, which create unfavorable survival conditions for the pathogenic flora.
