Description
Diosmectite

Diosmectite is a natural aluminomagnesium silicate clay with a lamellar, non-fibrous crystalline structure that gives it strong adsorbent properties. Diosmectite has demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of acute watery diarrhoea in children.

Pectin

Pectin is a structural acidic heteropolysaccharide contained in the primary and middle lamella cell walls of terrestrial plants. The characteristic structure of pectin is a linear chain of alpha(1-4)linked D-galacturonic acid that forms the pectin-backbone, a homogalacturonan.
