For acute diarrhoea: Protects, neutralises, eliminates
There are various factors that cause diarrhoea, and they range from infectious diseases to food intolerances and functional disorders. In most causes, it is caused by bacteria or viruses.
An intact intestinal barrier is decisive for all diarrhoeal diseases. It is organised as a multi-layer system and offers a complex defence system.¹ In case of diarrhoea, the intestinal barrier loses its important natural protective function.²
How do you use Tasectan and how does Tasectan work?
Tasectan (ingredient: gelatin tannate) is a mucoprotector (protects the mucous membranes) and is meanwhile an established and popular anti-diarrhoeal agent available in all Austrian pharmacies.
Tasectan protects the intestinal mucosa with a protective film and restores its normal function.
In that way, Tasectan stops and alleviates diarrhoeal disorders and the associated symptoms such as abdominal pain and frequent emptying of the bowels within 12 hours as a rule.
What does Tasectan contain?
Tasectan contains gelatin tannate which protects the intestinal mucosa and ensures fast symptom control.
Tasectan contains no lactose, gluten, yeast or soy.
