Gastro

Most people rush to the pharmacy if they start coughing but when it comes to their gut health, this features low on their list of priorities.

Trust Your Gut

The gut microbiome, as defined by molecular biologist Joshua Lederberg, is the totality of microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi, and their collective genetic material present in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT)1. Cipla’s portfolio spans various solutions for a healthy gastro-intestinal tract, such as probiotics, laxatives for the relief of constipation, and diarrhoea.

Lines, binds and protects your entire gut

Trust your gut with a unique two-strain probiotic that lines, binds and protects your entire gut. When prescribing antibiotics, healthcare professionals will commonly recommend probiotics be taken either during, the course. This makes good sense as probiotics reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea and help replace the good bacteria that antibiotics strip away2.

Research also suggests that using a daily probiotic can assist with conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhoea, delay the development of eczema in children, and prevent vaginal and urinary infections3.

Gentle relief for chronic constipation

With toilet paper being the most sought-after commodity worldwide during lockdown, you’d imagine everyone was having healthy bowel movements. Right? Wrong. Ironically for a nation of bog-roll bandits not everyone is lucky enough to be able to poop quite enough. And if the current news isn’t enough to scare the – out of you, then perhaps you should listen up.

Although poop isn’t something everyone’s comfortable talking about, it’s a fact of life and without regular movements a pretty uncomfortable one. But it doesn’t have to be, particularly with Cipla’s new laxative, Purgolene.
