Oral suspension for the symptomatic treatment of acute diarrhoea and chronic IBS diarrhoea.
MECHANISM OF ACTION
Enterosgel is an oral intestinal adsorbent (enterosorbent). It is based on organic mineral with adsorption capacity towards some toxic and harmful substances in the gut (e.g. endotoxins, enterotoxins), physically binding them to its surface, reducing stool frequency and duration of diarrhoea.
Enterosgel is expelled from the body with the stool, this way eliminating the adsorbed toxins and harmful substances,which can be beneficial for treatment of indicated conditions of acute diarrhoea and chronic IBS diarrhoea.
Enterosgel is an oral suspension indicated for the symptomatic treatment of acute diarrhoea and chronic diarrhoea associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Preservatives, gluten, sugar, sweeteners, lactose, fat, flavours, colouring, plant or animal-derived ingredients.
