Each sachet contians dioctahedral smectite 3g.
Smecta possesses a powerful coating property on the gastrointestinal mucosa. It increases the resistance of the mucosal layer against agressive agents, thereby protecting the gastrointestinal mucosa. It is used to treat acute and chronic diarrhea in adults and children.
Smecta does not colour stools, is radiolucent, and at usual doses, does not modify the intestinal transit time. It is also neither absorbed or metabolized.
