Espumizan contains simethicone. It is the cure for swelling and a feeling of heaviness in the abdomen. Enhanced formation and accumulation of gas in the stomach and intestines in the form of small bubbles foam leads to unpleasant symptoms such as bloating and feeling of heaviness in the abdomen. This is the reason for colic in infants, which are common complaints encountered in about one third of infants. Colic begins several days after birth and continue until about the third month in infants fed with breast milk, and in those fed with formula milk as well.
Simethicone reduces the surface tension of gas bubbles and break the bubble foam. This way gas is absorbed by the intestinal wall and passed out of the gut.
Espumizan acts in a purely physical way, does not change the chemical reactions and is pharmacologically and physiologically inactive, does not interact with microorganisms and enzymes. It does not affect digestion and does not change the acidity in the stomach.
