Smecta is natural purified and standardised clay.
Smecta covers the mucous membrane of the digestive tract and protects it by increasing mucous membrane
resistance as well as binding pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins.
This medicine is used for the treatment of acute diarrhoea in adults and children (including babies) with oral
rehydration support and for the symptomatic treatment of chronic functional diarrhoea in adults.
