How Cantel 200mg Syrup Works

Albendazole is like a warrior against worms in our bodies. It works by messing up the intestinal cells of these worms, preventing them from building important structures they need. This disruption affects their ability to take in glucose, use energy, and reproduce. Essentially, albendazole puts a wrench in their machinery, making them immobile and causing their demise. Some smart worms have figured out how to resist it, but others that rely on certain bacteria for survival face a tough choice – lose the bacteria and die or become sterile.
