Betafluss 600


Composition


N-acetyl cysteine

It is an expectorant, derived from a natural aminoacid with a fluidifying action on mucus in the airways. The effective activity on the mucosa component of secretions is due to the presence in the molecule of a free hydrogen group (-S-H) capable of attacking and split the S-S links responsible of the aggregation of proteins and therefore of the high viscosity of the mucus. N-acetylcysteine is also able to potentiate the antioxidant system of glutathione, one of the most important intracellular defense mechanisms. The acetylcysteine action and that of glutathione are synergistic in stimulating the activity of T lymphocytes and macrophages with positive immune effects, particularly desirable in the case of respiratory diseases caused by viruses and bacteria.

Vitamin C

It is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for the body and certainly very important for the immune system. In fact, it increases the body’s resistance, reinforces the function of phagocytes, increases the production of antibodies, stimulates the synthesis of interferon, destroys free radicals oxygenates, intervenes in the development of fibroblasts, in collagen synthesis, strengthening bones, muscles and cartilage, in the formation of adrenal hormones, it promotes iron absorption by increasing the rate of hemoglobin, zinc, calcium, magnesium, etc.

Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM)

The MSM is a bioavailable source of Sulfur which helps operations sulfur, essential for the synthesis of proteins, hormones, connective tissues and enzymes. As a central element of collagen, sulfur participates in the prevention of inflammation in the body and facilitates the recovery of connective tissues. Acts on the body’s natural defenses against allergens, promotes the welfare of the joints, ligaments, skin, nails and hair. The greatest benefits of MSM are obtained when it is taken together with vitamin C. It has been shown that supplementation of MSM helps to also improve many other health problems including: allergies, asthma, emphysema, lung dysfunction, arthritis, headaches, skin diseases, stomach and digestive tract diseases, circulation, cell osmosis and absorption.

Licorice e.s.

Licorice, Glycyrrhiza glabra L., belongs to the Papilionaceae Family and is a plant known to all for its flavoring properties but also has many medicinal properties. It contains the glycyrrhizin, an active ingredient with expectorant, gastro-protective, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties.

Grindelia e.s.

It has expectorant, anticatarrhal, cough sedative, antispasmodic and soothing for throat irritations properties. The mechanism of action of Grindelia is mediated by its various constituents (resins, saponins, essential oil) and is expressed at different levels of cough. In fact, the saponins through their excited-secretory action, cause a slight irritation of the gastric mucosa that determines an indirect stimulation of the reflex mucociliary thus inducing the production of bronchial secretions more fluid. Moreover coming in contact with the mucus, for their ability to lower the surface tension, make it more fluid and easily eliminable by the expectoration.

Zinc

It is a metal present in trace amounts in the body, especially in the bones and muscles. It is an essential oligoelement because it is necessary for the proper performance of multiple body functions. It is often used for its immunostimulant capacity, for the treatment of recurrent infections, and to prevent seasonal ailments.

Thanks to its active ingredients Betafluss 600 is particularly indicated for the symptomatic treatment of all diseases of the upper and lower respiratory tract.
