It is an era where everything has to happen fast. Fast eating, fast food, it is true in cases of foods and snacks. Indigestion and related problems are on rise. Many ready-to-prepare instant food items have occupied significant space in our food habits. Instead of preparing Diwali and other festival snacks at home, most people prefer to get mass-made commercial sweets and food items generally without quality checks and snack packages containing unwanted preservatives and taste enhancers. Frequency of dinner outing has increased. Every time one goes out, snack-pack pick up by children is common. Healthy snacks likes boiled sprouts are replaced by prepared branded or unbranded snacks. These taste enhancers make us to eat more. It makes more difficult for our digestive system to digest them. Keeping these altered lifestyles in mind; Schwabe has developed a new product Dizester Herbal™ to aid digestion. It is equally useful in cases of sluggish digestion and sluggish liver function.
