Pascoventral® - without celandine and a good choice for gastrointestinal disorders not only due to this

1931: 1

A popular alternative made from chamomile, peppermint and caraway

As a result of the events in recent weeks in regard to celandine, more and more customers are demanding stomach drops in pharmacies that do not contain celandine. Proven Pascoventral® is a real alternative as it contains the well-known and above all safe medicinal plants chamomile, caraway and peppermint and does not contain any celandine.

Background to the celandine discussion

Swissmedic, the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products, has ordered adaptation of the drug information for a herbal gastrointestinal drug containing celandine. The reason for this is reports of extremely rare but sometimes severe liver damage.* The uncertainty involved with this is of course catching on in Germany such that a large number of people are looking for gastrointestinal drops that do not contain any celandine – as with Pascoventral®.

How do the components of Pascoventral® act?

In principal the following applies: Peppermint, caraway and chamomile are tried and tested medicinal plants for digestive disorders with mild cramps, flatulence and a feeling of fullness.

  • Peppermint leaf extract acts directly on the smooth muscles of the digestive tract, has an antispasmodic, anti-flatulent effect and brings about an increase in bile production, supporting the digestion of fats.
  • Chamomile extract inhibits inflammation of the gastrointestinal mucosa and protects it, acting to promote wound healing and eliminate cramps.
  • Caraway fruit extract has a calming effect on the stomach and also acts to eliminate cramps, combat microbes and increase gastric juice secretion.
