Silicolgel - Colloidal Silicic Acid for Gastrointestinal DisordersTo Treat:
And IBS symptoms:
- Stomach ache
Silicolgel contains silicic acid which is a compound of the mineral substance silicon and oxygen in a colloidal (highly dispersable) and hydrated form.
Silicon is the second most abundant element on Earth, after oxygen. It is found in nature as silicon dioxide and in the hydrated or aqueous form as silicic acid.
Gastrointestinal disorders are usually caused by irritants and by harmful and toxic substances as well as pathogens.
When the gastrointestinal tract is disturbed by such toxic substances and pathogens, it could result in disorders such as heartburn, reflux and vomiting as well as IBS symptoms nausea, stomach aches, discomfort, diarrhoea and flatulence. As a result, the digestive tract cannot function normally and this may lead to physical discomfort.
The advantage of silicolgel exists in the large and highly reactive surface of Silicic acid. When taken internally, it forms a protective and soothing coating over the lining of the stomach and intestines. Due to the absorptive or binding properties of colloidal silicic acid, it physically adsorbs or binds irritants and harmful and toxic substances as well as pathogens. This renders them harmless so that they can be removed naturally through the intestines and out of the body. Silicic acid can also bind gases and reduce excess acidity.Ingredients:
3.5g Silicon dioxide in 100ml Silicic Acid gel, Preservatives: Sorbic Acid (E200), Sodium benzoate (E211).Directions:
Take Silicolgel at least one hour before or after the intake of medicines.
To treat gastrointestinal disorders, take 1 tablespoon (15ml) of silicolgel three times daily, preferably before meals.Other:
