Innomane Inc. Announces Health Canada Approval and Canadian Launch of Diaronex®, an Over-The-Counter Herbal Remedy to Help Relieve Diarrhea
TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2018 /CNW/ -- Innomane Inc., a Canadian pharmaceutical company, announces today the Health Canada approval and Canadian launch of Diaronex®, a natural and herbal remedy made from the herb Holarrhena, which is recognized by World Health Organization to help relieve diarrhea.
Millions of Canadians suffer in silence from diarrhea-related illnesses, leaving a devastating impact on one's personal and professional life.1 86 per cent of acute gastrointestinal illnesses in Canadian cities involve diarrhea.1 It's estimated that five million Canadians suffer from IBS.1 One-third of those individuals will experience diarrhea as the primary symptom.1 Up to 70 per cent of travellers may experience traveller's diarrhea while on vacation.2
"We are excited to offer this effective herbal remedy to Canadians suffering from diarrhea-related illnesses. Healthcare practitioners now have a new time-trusted, natural alternative to recommend to their patients," says Ian Millar, Vice-President, Innomane Inc. "We are a proud Canadian company. Diaronex® tablets are manufactured and quality tested at a GMP certified, FDA and Health Canada compliant facility in Toronto."
Diaronex® is a traditional natural and herbal remedy to help relieve diarrhea. The medicinal ingredient within the Diaronex® tablet is derived from the bark extract of a tree herb called Holarrhena Pubescens (Antidysentrica), that grows predominately in the Himalayas. For centuries, Holarrhena has been used in traditional herbal medicinal science Ayurveda to treat diarrhea and dysentery. A 2010 report published by the World Health Organization on traditional herbal remedies in primary care recognized Holarrhena bark as an effective and safe remedy to treat various types of diarrhea.3 The report states, "Holarrhena bark has anti-diarrheal, antidysenteric, anthelmintic, carminative and digestive properties.3 Clinical studies have shown no adverse effects in patients treated with Holarrhena within the recommended dose".3 Scientific studies since 1985 have proven the use of Holarrhena in treating diarrhea.4,5
"Current over-the-counter remedies only reduce gut motility and reduce secretions and they also contain chemicals," says Hitesh Tailor, a registered pharmacist in Toronto. "Studies have shown that the natural alkaloids in the Holarrhena bark form a protective layer in the gut and act broadly on the diarrhea-causing organisms as it relieves symptoms."
