Introduction to Oxaten Capsule

Oxaten Capsule contains not less than 5 billion colony-forming units (CFU’s) of a blend of probiotics oxalobacter formigenes, bifidobacterium lactis, lactobacillus acidophilus, bacillus coagulans. Probiotics are live microorganisms that provide health benefits to the host by increasing intestinal microbial flora. They maintain a balance between beneficial flora and harmful bacteria. Inform your physician if you have liver disease, kidney problems, heart disease, and other pre-existing medical conditions before initiating the treatment.  

Oxalate degradation by oxalobacter formigenes is important for human health, helping to prevent hyperoxaluria and disorders such as the development of kidney stones. Oxalobacter and other probiotics collectively help to reduce the kidney stones formed due to more oxalates. Oxaten capsule aid in maintaining a healthy microbiota balance in the gut.
