This pharmaceutical agent is classified as a biological preparation that regulates the balance of microflora in the human intestine.
The complex of live bifidobacteria “Bacillus subtilis” (Bacillus subtilis) form the main active ingredient of this drug. These bacteria have positive properties for the human intestine. They produce a high antagonistic activity against bacteria and other microorganisms that are pathogenic or opportunistic for the functioning of the human gastrointestinal tract and its condition. As a result, taking Subalin-forte during the course of the therapeutic course leads to the normalization of the qualitative and quantitative composition of the microflora that lives in the intestine.
