Powder for solution "B" practically does not smell anything. Has a light brown color. Contains ascorbic acid mixed with sodium ascorbate.

Medicinal drug "Moviprep"( reviews, incidentally, note the high cost of the drug) refers to laxatives that have osmotic effects.
The use of a solution of electrolytes inside, the bulk of which consists of a macrogol, provokes mild diarrhea. This action of the drug contributes to the rapid cleansing of the colon from its contents.
Macrogol 3350, together with sodium sulfate and vitamin C( ascorbic acid), gives an osmotic effect that facilitates the relaxation of the intestine and its rapid emptying.
Macrogol substance 3350, as part of the drug, increases the volume of feces, which leads to a stronger intestinal peristalsis.
Electrolytes contained in the drug and a liquid that is recommended to drink at the same time as "Moviprep", do not give the medicine to disrupt the water-electrolyte balance in the body.
Macrogol 3350 remains virtually unchanged when passing through the intestinal medium and is not absorbed from the gastrointestinal apparatus. The volume of the drug that has had time to absorb, goes through the kidneys, with urine.
Most of the ascorbic acid is absorbed in the small intestine. There is an inverse relationship, oscillating between the suction fraction of the drug and the dosage taken.
When using a solution made from powder, inside of 30-180 mg for absorption is 70-85%.If vitamin C will continue to be used in a dose of up to 12 g, then its absorbability will be 2 g. Ascorbic acid, used in large doses, goes unchanged through the renal organ.
