Tansy has antihelminthic (against ascarids and seatworms), giardicidal, choleretic, antispasmodic and astringent action. Increases appetite, the acidity of gastric fluid, improves digestion, has a bactericidal and bacteriostatic effect, has insecticidal properties.

Elecampane Inula acts as an antihelminthic agent (especially in ascariasis), normalizes secretion and motor function, and reduces inflammation activity in the digestive tract.

Alexandrine senna has a laxative effect, so all drugs are prescribed for the night. Administration of drug is not accompanied by cramping pains in the bowel and loose stool which greatly differentiates the drug from other
laxatives and allows extensive use of therapeutic doses in pediatric and geriatric practice.

Common hop has a calming, sedative effect. Its bitter substances improve digestion. The sum of active compounds has a bactericidal effect.

Pumpkin seeds have long been known in traditional medicine, their pharmacological properties are confirmed both experimentally and clinically. Seeds are used against a variety of tapeworms (bovine, porcine,
and dwarf tapeworms, broad tapeworm) and pinworms.

Garlic stimulates the appetite, enhances the excretion of enzymes in the digestive organs, promotes better digestion and absorption of food. Essential oil of garlic has a strong bactericidal, disinfectant action and at
