This product is used to relieve symptoms of extra gas such as belching, bloating, and feelings of pressure/discomfort in the rumen. Simethicone helps break up gas bubbles in the rumen.
Simethicone is an anti-foaming agent that decreases the surface tension of gas bubbles, causing them to combine into larger bubbles in the rumen that can be passed more easily.
Mechanism of action
Simethicone is a silicone compound that functions as a non-systemic surfactant, decreasing the surface tension of gas bubbles in the GI tract. This action results in coalescence and dispersion of the gas bubbles allowing their removal from the GI tract as flatulence or belching. Simethicone causes the gas bubbles to accumulate and therefore pass more easily either through the upper GI or lower GI opening.
