Cost-effective innovations for healthcare
Gastrointestinal diseases are a growing world-wide concern, with related medical, ethical and financial problems. World-wide, gastrointestinal diseases are the most common cause for people to seek treatment or suffer problems due to a lack of treatment. As the population ages, the need for healthcare will increase further, leading to an urgent requirement for new, cost-effective solutions.
The numerous health-related problems caused by smoking are the most common preventable form of mortality in western countries. Biohit helps people to give up smoking with a new method that does not cause nicotine addiction. The Acetium® lozenge is a natural preparation containing L cysteine which has already helped numerous smokers to stop smoking altogether or significantly reduce their smoking.
