What is TOTALLAX?

ТОТALLAX is a laxative that contains lactulose. Lactulose is a synthetically produced disaccharide


Lactulose
Fructooligosaccharides
Inulin

Efficacy of lactulose as a laxative, was firstly described in the middle of the 20th century, and since then it has passed from the unknown disaccharide to one of the safest and most effective laxatives

In the colon lactulose is an excellent substrate for the multiplication of bifidobacteria and fermented milk which converted it into various organic acids (lactic, formic, acetic). The latter have osmotic activity, hence, in fact, the effectiveness of lactulose as an osmotic laxative

Lactulose has a high osmotic activity and due to this it has the ability to retain water in the intestine. As a consequence, the volume of fecal matter increases and peristalsis is activated (undulating shrinkage of intestinal walls), and this is sufficient for the onset of a laxative effect

The high profile of product safety largely determines its over-the-counter status in all countries of the world, as well as the frequency of application not only in pediatrics, but also in elderly people, pregnant and lactating women. The effect after ingestion develops after 1-2 days: so much time is needed for lactulose to "reach" the colon and come into contact with bacteria

  • Treatment of constipation
  • Regulation of the physiological rhythm of emptying the colon
  • With the clinical need for softening of the stool and easing of defecation (after surgery on the large intestine and anal opening, with hemorrhoids)
