Silicolgel helps to manage symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders such as abdominal discomfort, stomach pain, nausea, flatulence, reflux and heartburn. It contains colloidal silicic acid which is a natural ingredient that acts as an adsorbent, and when swallowed, Silicolgel forms a protective coating over the stomach and intestines. The purpose is to adsorb irritants, toxins and pathogens that cause gastrointestinal disorders, and pass them through the body naturally. Silicolgel can also bind gasses and reduce excess acidity.



Always use this product exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. Shake the bottle well before every use. The usual dose for adults is 1 tablespoon an hour before meals, 3 times a day. Use for a few more days after symptoms ease. When using Silicolgel to treat chronic conditions you can take this medicine continually for 4 weeks followed by a break of 4-7 days.
