Sorbex is a non-toxic inert substance, it does not undergo chemical changes and metabolic transformations in the body, it is not absorbed from the intestinal lumen, it does not enter the gastrointestinal tract, it is not detected in any concentration in biological fluids and it is excreted from the body with feces.

Indications

Sorbex is used:

  • in case of chronic poisoning by household and industrial toxins (alkaloids, salts of heavy metals, other substances), food, drugs, during alcohol-food overloads in order to reduce absorption, prevent further absorption and accelerate the elimination of toxic substances from the body;
  • when living in adverse environmental conditions or the effects of harmful production factors, changing the usual way of eating during vacation, business trip, travel;
  • as adjuvant therapy:
  • with disorders and infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (dyspepsia, flatulence, intestinal infection, acute and chronic viral hepatitis);
  • for diseases accompanied by endogenous intoxication syndrome: acute and chronic damage to the liver, kidneys, allergic, autoimmune and oncological diseases, as well as with an elevated level of cholesterol.

Application
