Atoxil is an intestinal sorbent with significant sorption properties, shows disintoxication, anti-microbial and wound healing effect. It absorbs in the digestive tract and removes form the body endogenic and exogenic toxic agents of different origin, including food and bacterial allergens, microbial endotoxins and other toxic agents, toxic products resulting from proteins bio degradation in the intestinal tract.
It promotes transportation from the internal environment of an organism (blood, lymph, interstitium) to the digestive tract due to the concentration and osmotic gradients of various toxic products, including medium molecules, oligopeptides, amines and other substances with subsequent excretion from the body.
