GUT HEALTH

THE IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHY GUT

The gastrointestinal tract plays an essential role in maintaining good health:

  • delivers necessary nutrients;
  • serves as one of the main routes of elimination of harmful substances and toxins;
  • performs barrier and immune functions.

CAUSES OF DIARRHOEA

The cause of acute or short-term diarrhoea is usually from an infection (gastroenteritis) when the gastrointestinal tract is exposed to pathogens such as: bacteria and their toxins, viruses or parasites. Other possible causes include: food allergies, anxiety, excessive alcohol consumption, damage to the lining of the gastrointestinal tract from radiotherapy and as a side effect of certain medications.

Long term or persistent diarrhoea can have many causes, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that is a poorly understood and affects the normal functions of the bowel and can result in many symptoms including diarrhoea (IBS-D).

HOW CAN ENTEROSGEL® HELP

ENTEROSGEL® is based on organic mineral polymethylsiloxane polyhydrate, that has a porous structure, and a gel-like consistency. This allows ENTEROSGEL® to physically capture harmful substances on its surface, whilst it moves along the gastrointestinal tract. In-vitro studies with ENTEROSGEL® have shown high capacity to adsorb toxins from pathogenic bacteria such as: E.coli, Shigella, Staphylococcal aureus and Clostridium difficile and the viruses: norovirus and rotavirus that can cause diarrhoea.

ENTEROSGEL® has been used by millions of patients around the world for over 30 years. 100 doses of ENTEROSGEL® per second are taken worldwide.

Various short and long-term health conditions are associated with pathogens and toxins in the gut.
