Enterosgel, The Inert Gel


The makers of Enterosgel, an unflavored siloxane gel, claims that it “cleanses the gut” and has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and protective effects on the liver and kidneys. It does not do any of these things, because siloxane gel is inert. It’s generally safe to eat, so it probably won’t hurt you. Treating acute diarrhea is also indicated as a use of Enterosgel, but I haven’t found any studies in which polymethylsiloxane was shown to be effective in treating diarrhea.

The highlight is the five-star customer review that says “Tastes better than Smecta!” (I’ve linked to Smecta there, in case you’re curious about Smecta.)
