1. WHAT IS CHYMORAL Forte AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
When CHYMORAL FORTE® is administered on an empty stomach as soon as possible after injury occurs, the enteric coated Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are released and absorbed in the small intestine.
This mode of administration protects the enzymes from the destructive activity of the acid pepsin in the stomach and promotes intestinal absorption.
On being absorbed, the enzymes are taken up by the circulating enzyme inhibitors, levels of which show a steep rise following injury and tissue destructive disease. By bringing about an earlier reversal of the rising plasmin inhibitor levels, CHYMORAL FORTE® facilitates the action of plasmin, which is necessary to open up blocked micro circulation, resolve oedema and initiate healing.
Chemoral Forte it is used in :
Resolution of the inflammatory odema, hematoma, pain associated with accidental and surgical trauma, episiotomies, pelvic inflammatory disorders, post-cesarean section, hysterectomy, fractures, muscle and tendon injuries, intervertebral disc hemiation (sciatica) to reduce necrotic damage and to enhance antibiotic penetration in chronic respiratory diseases.2.
