Silicol gel can be used for nausea, flatulence, stomach ache, diarrhoea, heartburn and acid reflux. Silicol gel contains highly dispersible silicic acid which is widely used to treat gastrointestinal complaints by binding a variety of harmful and toxic substances and is an established therapy across much of Europe.
Silicol gel forms a protective and soothing coating over the stomach lining and intestines. Due to adsorptive and binding qualities possessed by colloidal silicic acid, it attracts and adsorbs irritants, toxins and pathogens, rendering them harmless so that they can be removed naturally through the intestines and excreted from the body. Silicic acid can also bind gases and reduce excess acidity. To treat gastrointestinal disorders, shake the bottle well and take 1 tablespoon (15ml) of Silicol gel three times daily, preferably one hour before meals. Silicol gel can be taken either undiluted or diluted with water. After symptoms ease, treatment with Silicol gel can continue for another few days. If symptoms have not reduced after three days, consult a medical doctor. There are no known side effects with use of silicic acid.
