What is Galavit?


Galavit is an immunomodulatory medication that helps to regulate your immune system. It is often used in the treatment of various conditions including stomach and duodenal ulcers, viral hepatitis, and several other infections and inflammatory diseases.

 

How Does Galavit Work?


Galavit works by influencing the functional and metabolic activity of your body's phagocytic cells (like monocytes, macrophages, and neutrophils). This action helps in modulating immune responses and reducing inflammation. It's like giving a helping hand to your body's natural defense system!
