For several years, Smekta has been helping out our family members from various health problems. I will briefly describe its advantages: it works quickly (the effect is noticeable after half an hour or an hour), the price is affordable compared to other sorbents, the taste is pleasant (it looks like a vanilla cocktail), it is good for poisoning and any infections. It helps both adults and small children - another important plus, as it is difficult to choose a tool that does not cause little baby. When food poisoning enough for us to drink Smektu three days, then everything passes. Therefore, these bags are always at home in the first-aid kit, I carry a couple of pieces with me in my purse.

Before the birth, my son never accepted Smekta, although this name constantly flashed in advertising and was generally heard. And then, faced with the problems of the infant period - diarrhea, colic, various problems with the gastrointestinal tract, I evaluated its properties. This natural product well removes all their manifestations. Smekta helped me out once too. Once I had a terrible alcohol poisoning (wine turned out to be of poor quality) and if it were not for this powder, I don’t know what I would do. She took 2 bags of Smekta and it became MUCH easier. Conveniently, the bags are sold individually, you can buy at least one, at least two. The price per piece is about 25 rubles; this is really a trifle for such an effective means. Christina, Moscow
