Uses of Siflat Drop

Benefits of Siflat Drop

In Bloating

Bloating refers to excessive buildup of gas in our stomach due to abnormal muscle movement in our stomach and intestines. Siflat Drop improves the movement of food in the stomach and helps prevent bloating.
Some simple lifestyle changes can help stop or reduce bloating. Think about what foods trigger bloating and try to avoid them; eat smaller, more frequent meals; try to lose weight if you are overweight and try to find ways to relax. Do not eat within 3 to 4 hours of going to bed.

In Abdominal pain

Siflat Drop effectively relieves sudden muscle spasms or contractions in the stomach and intestine (gut), thereby relaxing the muscles and improving movement of food. This helps to treat abdominal pain (or stomach pain) as well as cramps, bloating and discomfort. Eventually, it will help you to go about your daily activities more easily and have a better, more active, quality of life.
