A POTENT NATURAL SUPPLEMENT REGULATING DIGESTION
by Magdalena Wojciechowska, MD.
is an herbal OTC supplement used in Central Europe for
over 50 years. Its wide range of effectiveness helps
to regulate different digestive disorders. Like Aspirin,
can be found in almost every household. Because of its
history of safe use Rafani Plus
is generally accepted as the best digestant available.
identify the range of effectiveness of Rafani Plus
a group of 56 patients suffering from different digestive
disorders were studied. Their results were recorded
on a specially prepared questionnaire that showed,
on a scale from 1 to 5, the frequency and intensity
of symptoms before and after treatment with Rafani Plus.
The results showed statistically significant improvement
(decrease of symptoms), during or after treatment
with Rafani Plus,
as compared to the symptomologic scores when the patient
kept a similar diet without the use of Raphacholin.
is an herb supplement taken on the advice of a physician
or taken independently by patients to control the
function of the digestive system. Its components are
cholepoietic and cholagogic and stimulate peristalsis
of intestines. Rafani Plus
speeds up digestion of fats and prevents stagnasis
of food in intestines. As a result Rafani Plus
prevents esophagal cholestasis, acid reflux and feeling
of fullness. The product is also antibacterial and
spasmolitic. It decreases digestive tract tension
and can stop mild diarrhea. Rafani Plus
can also alkalize the gastric content.
is recommended to patients who suffer from cholecystolithiasis,
chronic cholecystisis and cholecystopathy as well
as for those who don't have any morphological pathologies
of digestive system but suffer from a malfunctioning
of their digestive system such as constipation, or
simply problems caused by consumption of heavy foods
resulting in bloating and excessive fullness (effect
of too slow process of cholepoiesis comparing to quantity
and quality of taken food).
is also used by the patients who have trouble with
side effects after taking strong medications for their
cardiovascular, respiratory, or musculoskeletal problems.
It prevents stomach pains and heartburn as well as
constipation. There are no direct contradictions in
taking this digestant.
analyze the therapeutic effectiveness of Rafani Plus,
56 patients with chronic digestive problems were chosen
at random. Their symptoms were scored on a scale from
#1-5 (listed below), based on their frequency and
severity. All the patients were using Rafani Plus
for a minimum period of three months.
Scale of symptoms:
Do not suffer from this symptom at all
2= Suffer Occasionally (less then 2 times a week)
but is a mild symptom
3= Suffer occasionally, and when I do it is severe
4= Suffer frequently, but it is a mild symptom
5= Suffer frequently, and when I do it is severe
different sets of test results were obtained from
each patient. One set of scores documented the symptologic
conditions of the patients during the time period
without the use of Rafani Plus,
another represented scores during the time when the
patients regularly used the Rafani Plus
therapy. During the time of the entire study, patients
stayed on their standard non altered diet. Scores
of all patients without exception were used in the

showed statistically significant improvement in the
patients symptoms during the supplemental treatment
in each tested symptom classification.
#2 Distribution of symptoms among tested population.
The most frequent and
strongest symptoms experienced by the studied patients
were: bloating (84%), abdominal pains and cramps (77%),
stomach pains and cramps (70%), constipation (66%),
and heartburn (57%).

of symptoms tested. (Table#3)
was the most successful in eliminating the most frequently
occurring symptom: gas, in over 95% of the cases.
Symptoms such as constipation, intestinal pains and
cramps, heartburn (reflux), and stomach pains and
cramps, were helped or completely eliminated in over
90% of the cases. Bloating was helped in over 80%.

is an herbal supplement taken by patients suffering
from a variety of digestive disorders such as: bloating,
intestinal pains and cramps, stomach pains, constipation
and heartburn. Acting as a strong support in the process
of digestion, Rafani
alleviates a great majority of these symptoms. By
regulating digestion, Rafani
minimizes the assimilation of undigested toxic products,
which often stay in the gut for a prolonged period
of time. Due it's cholepoietic and cholagogic abilities,
aids digestion of fats, therefore preventing stagnasis
of food and bloating. That's why Rafani
is recommended for patients whose diet is rich in
animal protein and fat. As there are no specific contraindications,
can be taken together with any medication. Its prophylactic
abilities can't be underestimated either. Speeding
up the process of cholekinasis, it also prevents formation
of gallstones particularly of a cholesterol origin.
