EMILOOZ Liquid

Composition:

Each 15mL EMILOOZ LIQUID contains lactulose 10g.

Description:

Lactulose is a synthetic sugar that is used to treat constipation and liver disorders. It is made up of the monosaccharides, galactose and fructose. Lactulose possesses ammonia-detoxifying and laxative properties.

In the intestine, lactulose is broken down into lactic acid, formic acid and acetic acid in presence of beta-galactosidase from the bacteria present in the colon. This process acidifies the colonic content and increases the osmotic pressure in this region. This increases the water content of the stools, softens it and eases the elimination of the fecal matter.

In the case of hepatic encephalopathy, lactulose detoxifies the liver by eliminating the toxic ammonia from the system.
