• How do enterosorbents work?

    Since ancient times, people paying due attention to their health have used various body cleansers. For example, the inhabitants of the Stone Age used natural enterosorbents for this, such as charcoal and ash.

    What it is?

    An enterosorbent is a substance that absorbs toxins and neutralizes poisons in the stomach, intestines of a person, and then removes them from the body by emptying the rectum. No wonder the name consists of two Latin words denoting: "sorbens" - absorb, absorb, and "entero" - the gastrointestinal tract (place of action).

    Due to the pollution of the environment, the presence of harmful components in products and other adverse factors, sorption substances have found wide application in everyday life and are quite popular. Even a special science was created - enterosorption.

    Enterosorbents are:

    • Natural, for example, charcoal;
    • created in scientific laboratories, namely ion-exchange material - a sorbent of new technologies.

    It should be noted that many natural sorbents are contained in food. These include pectins, cellulose, a by-product of the milling industry, called bran, alginic acids - seaweed polysaccharides.
