Creon 10000 is a unique drug that is used for disorders in the digestive system, not only for adults, but also for children.
Today, one in three suffers from stomach problems. Improper nutrition, abuse of alcohol and fatty foods, excess weight are the most common causes of disorders in the digestive system.
Improper eating behavior is the cause of insufficiency of the exocrine function of the pancreas. Normally, juices are secreted in the amount necessary for the digestion of food, and if there is a deviation, there is a deficiency of vitamins and serious health problems, the solution of which requires the use of an enzyme preparation that allows the digestive process to be normalized. Creon 10000 belongs to one of these drugs.
The main characteristics of the drug
This drug is as follows: hard two-color capsules in a gelatin shell, inside of which there are light brown minimicrospherical granules.
One Creon capsule includes: 150 milligrams of pancreatin (from pig pancreas), 10,000 units of lipase, amylase, proteolytic enzymes.
Creon 10000 is an enzyme remedy that is used for a lack of enzyme production by the pancreas. Suitable for treatment of both children and adults.
The drug gradually dissolves in the gastrointestinal tract, and minimicrospheres with enzymes are mixed with the contents of the intestine and contribute to their better redistribution. In the small intestine, the membrane dissolves, and enzymes are released, subsequently proteins, fats and carbohydrates are broken down. Thus, due to enzymes, our body is saturated with useful substances and trace elements.
