For preventive and regenerative purposes, it is worth using the Biofiton Healthy Stomach supplement.

2.REDUCTION OF DISCOMFORT. Active substances of Marshmallow Roots, Yarrow Aerial Parts, Ginger, Tormentil and Liсorice Roots, Greater Plantain Leaves have soothing properties and mitigate gastrointestinal tract.
5.IRRITATION MITIGATION. Greater Plantain Leaves, Matricaria and Calendula Flowers remove irritation in gastrointestinal tract efficiently.
The stomach provides food storage and for some time serves as a reservoir. In the stomach, fat digestion begins; by processing the food, it leads to a paste-like consistency – the digestive content, which in small portions, approximately 14 g each, passes into the duodenum.
The duodenum is called an important hormonal organ. In the intestinal wall, under the influence of gastric contents, a substance is produced – enterogastron, which suppresses the secretion of gastric juices and relaxes the muscles of the stomach wall. Enterogastron “interferes” with another digestive hormone – gastrin – to stimulate the stomach glands.
FREQUENTLY OCCURRENCE OF GERDIC DISEASES
Gastritis is an inflammation of the lining of the stomach wall. It causes a disruption of the digestive process, which leads to a worsening of the general condition of the body, a decrease in fitness and rapid fatigue. Gastritis is one of the most common diseases of the digestive system, which affects about 50% of the population in our country. The problem of treating gastritis is current for many people.
Causes of gastritis
The true cause of gastritis is unknown, but there are specific factors that contribute to its occurrence:
• long-term irrational and irregular nutrition;
• long-term consumption of foods that irritate the stomach;
• prolonged alcohol consumption, smoking;
• taking medicines that cause rhinitis for a long time
(sulfonamides, reserpine, potassium chloride);
• prolonged nervous tension;
• hormonal factors (diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism);
• chronic deficit of vitamin B12, iron;
• excess toxin in chronic renal failure;
• chronic infections, allergic diseases.
Symptoms of gastritis
Symptoms of gastritis depend on the form of the disease. Acute catarrhal is characterized by the following symptoms:
• abdominal pain – acute paroxysmal or persistent, often associated with eating a meal – it gets worse on an empty stomach or after a while;
• nausea, continuous or intermittent, often occurs immediately after a meal;
• heartburn – uncomfortable burning sensation in the chest, appears after eating;
• belching, accompanied by a sour smell, after eating or on an empty stomach;
• frequent vomiting;
• excessive salivation – the body’s response to digestive disorders; sometimes dry mouth (after several bouts of vomiting due to dehydration);
• problems with passing faeces – constipation or diarrhea;
• on the part of the whole organism – general weakness, dizziness, sweating, high body temperature, low blood pressure, increased heart rate.
Gastric and duodenal ulcer
Gastric and duodenal ulcer are chronic. Its essence is periodic recurrence of the disease, usually against the background of gastritis, caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. 8-10% of the population suffers from this disease. Duodenal ulcers are four times more common than gastric ulcers.
What leads to stomach and duodenal ulcers?
The development of stomach ulcers is caused by a violation of the balance between aggressive and defensive factors affecting the gastric or duodenal mucosa. Aggressive factors include hydrochloric acid, which is produced in the stomach, bile acids, produced in the liver and going into the duodenum, discharge of content from the duodenum into the stomach. Defense factors include: mucus produced by mucous cells, proper blood circulation, rapid regeneration of mucosal cells.
To achieve an advantage by aggressive factors contribute: blood group (0) I; presence of Helicobacter pylori in the stomach or duodenum, taking analgin, aspirin, indomethacin; stress, difficult emotional experiences; excessive coffee consumption, alcohol abuse, spicy food.
Important for the development of the disease is heredity, i.e. falling ill among close relatives. It is not the disease itself that is inherited, but a predisposition to it – an increased number of cells that synthesize hydrochloric acid, reduced mucosal stability under the influence of this acid, congenital deficiency of blood vessels that supply blood to the gastric and duodenal mucosa.
The role of Helicobacter pylori is that during its life it produces ammonia, which indirectly leads to an increase in the production of hydrochloric acid. In addition, Helicobacter produces substances that damage the stomach and duodenal mucosa cells, causing inflammation. After the infection has been eradicated, the symptoms of inflammation disappear.
What are the symptoms of peptic ulcer disease?
The most common symptom of peptic ulcer disease is pain in the stomach area: acute, burning and nagging. It may be indefinite, dull, felt as a stomach overflow, heaviness in the stomach, or reminiscent of hunger.
