Silicol Gelis an oral gel containing colloidal silicic acid for the treatment of upper gastrointestinal disorders. Taken 3 times a day it helps manage symptoms and provides relief for gastrointestinal discomfort.
Its therapeutic action is due to the large and reactive surface of colloidal silicic acid and its ability to act as an adsorbent. After silicol®gel is swallowed, it forms a protective and soothing coating over the lining of the stomach and intestines. Due to the adsorptive and binding qualities of colloidal silicic acid, it physically attracts and adsorbs irritants, toxins and pathogens. This renders them harmless so that they can be removed and passed through, as the body empties naturally. Silicic acid can also bind gases and reduce excess acidity.
How can silicol®gel help me?
Gastrointestinal disorders are very often caused by irritants, toxins and pathogens. When the stomach or intestines are disturbed by such toxins and irritants, this can cause the digestive tract to malfunction. This can then lead to unpleasant symptoms.
