Children often experience more than one episode of diarrhoea per year and 10% of under 5s need to see their doctor due to symptoms of acute diarrhoea every year. Newly launched Enterosgel Kids is a clinically proven, innovative drug-free treatment for children with acute diarrhoea and is the only product available in the UK suitable for children that is clinically proven to reduce the duration of diarrhoea.

Diarrhoea in children is not easy to deal with and if caused by an infection can easily be passed between family members. Children with acute diarrhoea often suffer symptoms that include loose or watery stools, usually lasting 5 to 7 days.

Supported by scientific and clinical research studies [1] and recommended by UK gastroenterologists, newly launched Enterosgel Kids is a drug-free oral intestinal adsorbent, clinically proven to help reduce the duration of acute diarrhoea, helping parents to treat the cause of diarrhoea.

The gel works by binding bacterial toxins, viruses and other harmful substances in the gut that can cause diarrhoea. Enterosgel Kids, along with these toxins and viruses, are then completely expelled from the body in the stool. By helping to eliminate the cause of diarrhoea, the product effectively reduces stool frequency and the duration of diarrhoea. The product itself is not absorbed by the body, but passes through the gut, and is a safe option for children.

Enterosgel Kids is an over the counter treatment that can be recommended by pharmacists without a prescription. This oral intestinal gel for the symptomatic treatment of acute diarrhoea is composed of an organic mineral. It is gentle on the gut, completely non-allergenic, contains no additives or preservatives, and is free from sugar and gluten. Enterosgel Kids is suitable for children aged 1 year and over and the adult version of the product can be taken by the whole family. The product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Enterosgel Kids is a taste-free gel easily tolerated by children. It is simple to use, simply mix the gel with water and give to your child to drink. For children aged 1 to 3 years, take one teaspoon (5g) three times per day. It is advisable to consult your GP before giving Enterosgel Kids to this age group. For children aged 3 to 6 years, the recommended dosage is one teaspoon (5g) three times per day and for 7 to 14 year olds, two teaspoons (10g) three times per day. The recommended treatment duration is 3-5 days.
