Innovative hi-tech form|
The shell of Micrasim capsule is fast dissolved in the stomach, releasing the microgranules. Little granules get to the intestine in a glance and right away start to act, normalizing the digestion.
Indispensible for GIT problems|
Micrasim is indispensible, when digestion process is impaired or in cases of pancreatic insufficiency. Microgranules of the drug, which contain enzymes, will help improving digestion and getting rid of discomfort in the stomach.
There is no such thing as to much ravioli!|
There are so many tasty and different foods in the world – why stop oneself from getting those pleasures? Just one capsule of Micrasim will make the meal more pleasant, ensuring sense of easy and comfort.
Enzymes and alchemy?
The word “fermentation” comes from the ancient times. In the medieval times the word meant “magical” processes, similar to fermentation of wine and dough. Alchemists were searching for those magical “ferments” – it was believes that “ferments” could start chemical processes without human work. But the actual cnowledge about ferments (enzymes) was collected piece by piece...
History of enzymes
In the mid of the 17th century, a scientist, anatomist and chemist Franciscus Sylvius proved, that human pancreas produces special fluid, which is then mixed with food. This lead to a long way of understanding of the nature and role of enzymes in the human body. The 19th century was more generous in discoveries:
Generations of enzymes
At the end of 19th century it was found, that pancreatine in the stomach loses its activity significantly, because enzymes are destroyed by stomach fluid. In order to avoid that, company producing pancreatine started making it is the shell of tannin, and called it Pankreon. Over time the shell was improved, became more stabile so that is would dissolve only in the intestine – that was the second generation of enzymes.
After some time it was proven, that size of preparation particles is important. Smaller size would have allowed enzyme preparations to get faster with the crashed food from the stomach to the duodenum. Because “sliding” from stomach down with chime (crashed food mixed with stomach fluid) further to the intestine is only possible for particles no more than 1.5 mm in diameter. In addition, the smaller the granules, the faster enzymes are activated in the intestine. In 1963, enzyme drugs were improved again, and were produced as granules without shell.
So over time the third generation of enzymes has ”grown”. In 1983 microspheres were enclosed in a capsule (to protect enzymes from the stomach fluid). However, the technologies did not stop at that. It has been discovered that mini-microspheres 1.0-1.2 mm in diameter are a quarter more effective than microspheres with diameter 1.9-2.0 mm. So in 1993 a patent was received for production of pancreatine in the form of mini-microspheres (the fourth generation of enzyme preparations). Mini-microspheres have the diameter of approximately 1.2 mm – that diameter proved to be practically ideal for the best effectiveness of the preparations. And those are the enzyme drugs that are considered to be optimal for today. This is the technology used in producing Micrasim.
