How Do Buscopan IBS Relief Tablets Work?
Buscopan IBS Relief has a targeted effect;
- It acts on the cause of the pain: relaxing the bowel muscles to help stop the spasm itself.
- It acts where it's needed, to effectively relieve the discomfort and pain of abdominal cramps.
Buscopan IBS Relief Tablets contain Hyoscine butylbromide as an active ingredient. This works by relaxing the muscles in the walls of the stomach, intestines and bowels, removing uncomfortable and painful cramps.
After being swallowed, Buscopan IBS Relief moves slowly down the digestive tract. But because of its particular pharmacological properties, very little enters the bloodstream and it mostly stays in the gastrointestinal system. Buscopan IBS Relief interrupts the cramp signal from the brain which helps the muscles to relax, thus allowing the pain to fade and the digestive processes to return to normal.
