How SITCOM works?
SITCOM helps in treating haemorrhoids, where Euphorbia Prostrata works by shrinking blood vessels in the affected area that causes constriction of blood vessels which results in preventing bleeding from the affected site. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent which helps in reducing inflammation and relieving pain thereby promoting healing in affected individuals.
