How it works
Amoxycillin and cloxacillin work by interfering with certain processes that help the bacteria to form new cell walls. This helps in stopping the growth and multiplication of bacteria and eventually kills them. Lactic acid bacillus restores body-friendly micro-organisms in the intestines. Serratiopeptidase works by helping the body in the breakdown of proteins that are present at the site of inflammation.
