Principle of operation of
The mechanism of action of Enterosgel is based on molecular adsorption due to the strong porous structure of the gelling matrix. Getting into the pores of the drug, large molecules of ethyl alcohol are retained there, and all useful substances pass through the gel. Thus, vital microelements, vitamins and calcium remain inside the body, and unassigned remains of alcohol and its metabolites are removed.
Also the manufacturer claims that the drug eliminates the specific odor after alcohol abuse.
Some even compare the enterosorbent with a small liver, which filters and removes poisoning substances from the body. Therefore, it is often included in the complex treatment of viral hepatitis.
In parallel, Enterosgel provides protection of the mucous membranes. They are deposited gelatinous particles of the drug, thereby preventing erosion, which is often caused by acids and toxins.
Due to this feature, the drug becomes effective when taken not only during a hangover, but also before drinking hot drinks - in this case it is possible to reduce the harmful effects of ethanol on the body. The stomach is covered with a thin film, which prevents the destruction of the mucosa and its subsequent inflammation. The risk of developing peptic ulcer and gastritis is minimized.
