PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTION:
Hemapep is designed to ease the discomforts associated with
"heat fatigue".

Water loss due to excessive perspiration, especially during the hotter months of the year, results in considerable losses of salt and other highly necessary minerals.

Hemapep replenishes the supply of salt in the body and thus relieves muscle cramps, uncontrolled shaking and listlessness known as "heat fatigue".

Excessive loss of potassium salts, also due to high temperatures and increased perspiration, can cause muscle weakness and reduce the effective working of the heart and cause breaking down of the nerve tissue. Sportsmen know the feeling well, but that shaky listlessness is just as likely to strike people engaged in other sweat-inducing activities like weekend gardener as well as those who just cannot take the heat.

Hemapep quickly retrieves the situation. By replenishing the supply of sodium, potassium and calcium salts it relieves muscle cramps and listlessness, and in addition contains energy-producing dextrose to perk you up.

INDICATIONS:
Mineral replacement during heat fatigue.

Patients with renal or adrenal insufficiency.
