Filtrum

[ 2.1 ] Over-the-counter medical products

Filtrum is a modern medicine against different intoxications. Its main ingredient is lignin, a natural enterosorbent, which is a product of hydrolyzed wood processing. Surveys show that sorption capacity of Filtrum is 1 000 times higher than of absorbent carbon.

Lignin is a sorbent of wide spectrum of activity. It ties up and withdraws pathogenic bacteria and bacterial toxins out of organism and consequently is particularly effective against enteric infections. Due to high sorption of toxic agents, salts of heavy metals and alcohol Filtrum is effective against different types of poisoning. The medicine helps to reduce cholesterol, urea, bilirubin, metabolites causing chronicle intoxication of organism.

Filtrum is not toxic, doesn’t absorb and completely eliminates itself from intestine in 24 hours. Unlike other sorbents, like absorbent carbon, Filtrum doesn’t injure digestive tract.

Filtrum is allowed for ingestion in pregnancy and lactation period and for children under 1 year of age (in consultation with doctor).
