Products Digestive Health Biomecta

Biomecta

Diosmectite is natural aluminomagnesium silicate clay with a lamellar, non-fibrous crystalline structure that gives it strong adsorbent properties. However, unlike other adsorbents, diosmectite is not absorbed in the intestine and can adsorb eight times its own weight of water, thereby diminishing free stool water. Diosmectite reduces inflammation, modifies mucus rheologic properties, inhibits mucolysis, and adsorbs bacteria, bacterial enterotoxins, viruses and other potentially diarrheogenic substances. Diosmectite strengthens the mucosal barrier, normalizes intestinal transit, decreases stool output and the duration of diarrhea. Biomecta is radiolucent and it does not stain the stools. Because of its very favorable safety profile, with no serious adverse effects, diosmectite is frequently used in European countries, Asia and Africa.
