Pharmacists, Jon Ravech, Michael Karsz and Frank Mattea are all PCCA certified trained compounding chemists.
Our pharmacy has been set-up with a state-of the-art compounding room.Compounding is the traditional way that chemists can make and prepare an endless variety of medications (both oral and topical) for all sorts of uses on adults, children and animals.Often ordinary medicines and crèmes can’t be tolerated by some 'sensitive people' and animals and the ancient time honoured traditions of compounding (which have their origins in the earliest history of mankind) are used.
Many of the compounding pharmacy products formulated have exceptional beneficial effects on patients because of their unique ingredients and manual hand compounding.Compounding has become one of the most go-ahead areas of modern pharmacies all over the globe. Now it’s available at Jon Ravech Chemsave and all prepared by skilled pharmacists in the Northern Suburbs most up-to-date compounding laboratory which is specially sealed and controlled.
When you are next in the Pharmacy find out more about compounding from any of the friendly staff. It’s just another part of the complete health services story always available at Jon Ravech Chemsave.
If you have a particular medical problem you have tried prescription medicine for and not been happy with the results, then perhaps compounded treatments are the answer for you.
Please consult with your doctor.
COMPOUNDING HEALTH UPDATE: "MUTAFLOR"
Maintaining the right kind of active pro-biotic substances in your stomach to aid digestion and other vital health properties are one of the most import things that you should try to achieve in your daily health program.
It's even more important as you age but its a "must do" part of daily health care to get into early in life. It's great for children of an early age right through to seniors when it becomes vitally important to your overall health.
Proudly Jon Ravech and Northern Compounding have introduced Mutaflor ® capsules to their extensive range of medicines and natural health products.
These high action capsules contain
as the active substance, the non-pathogenic strain Escherichia
coli strain Nissle1917. Probiotics are defined as live non-pathogenic
micro-organisms that, when taken orally by capsule in adequate numbers, exert a
beneficial effect on the health of the host (the gut of the stomach)
Many of us have seen the advertisement on the television for a pro-biotic drink available from the Supermarket. This is the same kind of idea but only in a capsule and miles better!
Mutaflor ® strain had its origins in 1917, isolated by Professor Alfred
Nissle during the First World War from the faeces of a particular
soldier who, “in contrast to the large majority of his comarades, had not
suffered from dysentery nor any other intestinal diseases.”
The strain, Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917, designated DSM 6601 in
the German Collection for Microorganisms in Brauschweig is regarded as one
of the most examined and therapeutically relevant bacterial strains
The results of MUTAFLOR have been dramatic and hundreds of thousands of people all over the world testify to its goodness. To back it up extensive official tests have also been carried out.The
therapeutic effects of Mutaflor® are strain specific and have been amply
demonstrated by in-vitro and in-vivo experiments and clinical studies.
Our stomachs/gastrointestinal tract is a home to more than 500 species of bacteria and these number approximately 1014 microorganisms
with most found in the large intestine. This complex collection of
microorganisms is often referred to as the intestinal microflora and
fulfills many important roles such as:
- Modulation of the local immune system(GALT)
- Barrier function from pathogenic microorganisms
- Stimulation of gut motility
- Support of vitamin supply, energy metabolism and stimulation of blood flow to the colonic mucosa
is one of the initial colonizers of the intestine. In simple terms this means setting up home and getting on with daily health-giving activities.
Because of these activities and the consumption of oxygen, MUTAFLOR helps create the perfect home in which anaerobic microorganisms can establish themselves.
This is the start of ensuring you have a complex bacterial environment in your gut which can play a HUGE crucial role in your daily health.
Mutaflor® Escherichia coli
strain Nissle 1917 is highly regarded as one of the most extensively studied
probiotic strains in the world today.
Since its isolation way back in 1917, subsequent studies have
shown Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917 (EcN) has beneficial effects on
various gastrointestinal disorders as well as helping to identify the
characteristics that make EcN an ideal probiotic drug for daily use.
Because many people these days exhibit an intolerance to lactose, gluten or wheat products its good to know that Mutaflor® contains NO lactose, gluten or wheat products
Mutaflor® does not contain any gluten, wheat, lactose or milk proteins.
Another important question to some people is:Does Mutaflor® contain any animal products?
Mutaflor® does not contain any animal products.
ASK our pharmacists about MUTAFLOR next time you are in.
