What is Luvos Heilerde 1 for oral use and when is it used?
Luvos® Heilerde 1 is loess and was processed without any admixture. Luvos® Healing Earth 1 is used for heartburn, acidity in the stomach and diarrhea. Luvos® Healing Earth 1 binds pollutants that are in the stomach and intestines. The fineness of Luvos® Heilerde 1 gives it a large overall surface. This surface guarantees its absorption capacity for pollutants.

Luvos® Healing Earth 1 must not be used in the case of severe kidney disease. If you have impaired kidney function, you should ask your doctor for advice.
