Lactulose, which is not broken down in the stomach
and small intestine, begins its action in the large intestine where it
is broken down primarily by intestinal bacteria. In this degradation
process, lactic acid is produced; this in turn supports the growth of
intestinal bacteria important for human and hinders the growth of
putrefactive bacteria. Thus normalization of intestinal flora (eubiosis)
results. In addition, the increase in metabolic degradation products in
the blood, which cannot be sufficiently detoxified by the liver, is
Lactulose improves the transter of calcium salts and phosphates from the intestines, stimulates intestinal peristalsis and leads to softening of the stool. It also leads to heating and improvement in gum diseases through normalization of metabolic processes in the parodontal region.
Even long-term use of Avolac does not lead to habituation and thus there is no loss of efficacy.
