Back to school is an exciting time for children, catching up with friends and exchanging news. But along with the latest gossip, it is also the time when children swap bugs and viruses, including the dreaded Norovirus which can sweep around a classroom like wildfire.
Up until now, health care professionals could only advise that affected children stay at home and wait until the unpleasant symptoms subside, whilst parents could only cross their fingers and hope that their child would not be one of the unlucky one.
But now, for the first time, parents have a new weapon in the fight back again nasty classroom viruses. Unlike other treatments, which simply deal with the symptoms once the illness has taken hold, Enterosgel is an over the counter product that can be used both as a preventative measure and a treatment against stomach viruses infections and their symptoms.(1)
What’s more, unlike other OTC treatments, Enterosgel can be safely used by all the family, from young babies and toddlers to pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers. It is non-allergenic and gluten, lactose & preservative-free which is ideal for those with already sensitive stomachs. This means that as soon as that letter comes home from school, or their child starts complaining of tummy pains, no matter how young they are parents can act to prevent the virus taking hold.
Parvez Aslam, superintendent pharmacist of Central Pharmacies UK explains:
‘Unlike traditional anti-diarrhoeals which stop the upset stomach by slowing the bowel movement down which keeps viruses or toxins inside the body Enterosgel acts like a clever sponge as it passes through the gut absorbing only medium weight molecules of harmful substances such as toxins, pathogens, allergens & viruses. These potentially harmful substances are then excreted with the next bowel movement within 12-24 hours.’
Sarah Ebbutt from Hampshire, has two boys aged 8 and 10. When her youngest son recently succumbed to the Norovirus she gave them both Enterosgel; the youngest boy as a treatment, the older one as a preventative measure.
‘My younger son was ill for a lot less time than he would normally be with Norovirus and the older one escaped the virus altogether,’ says Sarah. ‘The children both took the gel easily in a drink, it had no side effects and overall it made us feel a lot more positive that we could deal with the virus quickly and easily without it spreading throughout the family.
‘I certainly regard Enterosgel as a very useful new family health product.’
No wonder Enterosgel is widely used across Europe where six million tubes are purchased every year and it is a staple in every savvy mum’s first aid kit.
