Colloidal Silicic Acid for Gastrointestinal Disorders
sillicolgel 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 nausea, abdominal pain, bowel discomfort, diarrhoea and flatulence which may be symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). As a result, the digestive tract cannot function normally and this may lead to physical discomfort.
The advantage of sillicolgel 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 adsorptive or binding properties of colloidal silicic acid, it physically adsorbs or binds most 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 reduce excess acidity and bind gases. This can reduce flatulence.
To treat heartburn, reflux and vomiting and IBS symptoms such as nausea, flatulence, abdominal pain, bowel discomfort and diarrhoea.
silicolgel should only be used for children under 12 following medical advice.
silicolgel can be taken either undiluted or diluted with water. After acute symptoms ease, treatment with silicolgel can continue for another few days.
silicolgel also alleviates similar symptoms in the gastrointestinal tract that may occur due to a change in diet during travel or on holiday.
