CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PRODUCT
Hericium – also known as Lion’s Mane or Old Man’s Beard – is the medicinal mushroom used in this product. In Gastroeikes Syrup it is associated with Althea and Lentisk. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice has scar healing and antimicrobial properties thanks to its flavonoids: the absence of glycyrrhizin acid limits the undesirable effects on blood pressure. Lentisk (mastic of Chios) has beneficial effects on the digestive system and the regularity of intestinal transit.
Althea has an emollient and soothing action on the digestive system, acting positively on intestinal transit. To offer even more to our customers, our formulations are prepared weekly; not more than 10 specimen per batch are produced at a time and they are manually numbered.
