EnteraGam® is not a probiotic or an antibiotic.
EnteraGam® is a medical food that uniquely binds microbial components,1 such as toxic substances released by bacteria, that upset the intestinal environment. This helps prevent them from penetrating the lining of the intestine, which may contribute to chronic diarrhea and loose stools in people with specific intestinal disorders, like irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).2,3
