Ketzi Shampoo in treatment of fungal infections

Mechanism of action

This product is an extremely effective anti-fungal agent widely used to treat jock itch, athlete’s foot and diverse yeast infections, as well as other common infections. Its active ingredients block the formation of the fungal cell membrane, preventing both normal development and division of pathogenic cells. The medication works by preventing the synthesis of ergosterol – a complex chemical compound crucial for the synthesis of fungal cell membranes. The drug inhibits lanosterol 14α-demethylase, which is a cytochrome P-450 dependent enzyme responsible for the metabolic transformation of lanosterol to ergosterol.

The health product helps in the treatment of fungal and yeast infections. It belongs to the group of remedies known as azole antifungals. The medication prevents the growth of various types of fungi by disrupting the production of the membranes that surround the fungal cells.
