Description

PEGinpol is a product with a laxative effect that regulates the intestine by means of an osmotic mechanism (draws water into the intestine).
PEGinpol is recommended in cases of chronic constipation and occasional irregular bowel activity.
In fact, thanks to its affinity for water, PEGinpol causes a softening of the stool, facilitating evacuation without giving rise to emergency situations. Moreover, since the product is not absorbed, it does not ferment in the intestine or irritate the mucous membrane, and hence does not cause cramps or abdominal pain. It is eliminated in the feces in unmodified form.

ITS EFFECTIVENESS IS NOT DIMINISHED OVER TIME.

Composition

One bottle contains: 100 g of Macrogol 3350.

PEGinpol IS GLUTEN AND LACTOSE FREE

Information

Chronic idiopathic constipation is a common gastrointestinal disorder in infants and children during the first months and years of life. Must be diagnosed by a doctor.
There are two possible approaches for the treatment of chronic idiopathic constipation in children:
Non pharmacological: Normal introduction of fiber and fluids into the diet, regular physical activity
and possible use of probiotics and prebiotics.
Pharmacological: Divided into two key stages, i.e. fecal disimpaction
(eliminating feces in the gut), only when necessary, and subsequent maintenance
therapy.
PEG3350 (PEGinpol) represents a viable solution in the case of pharmacological treatment, since it is not absorbed in into the intestine, and is not metabolized by intestinal bacteria, hence it does not cause cramps or abdominal pain.
it works by drawing water into the lumen of the colon, leading to rehydration and softening of the stool, and a mechanical stimulation of intestinal peristalsis.
