How to take FILTRUM®: before or after meal?
Filtrum sorption effect is not strictly selective. A variety of substances and adhesion-prone microorganisms can precipitate on its complex-structured porous surface. When having the drug with meal or soon after meals, it will adsorb not only the toxins accumulated in the intestine, but also vitamins, microelements and split nutrients. Such a mode of applying Filtrum® is inadvisable as developing hypovitaminosis and micronutrient deficiency.
According to the instructions, the medicine should be taken 1 hour before meals. In this case, Filtrum® absorbs a significant part of the toxins from the gastrointestinal tract before the meal enters the bowel and does not affect the ingested nutrients.
