Simethicone What Is Simethicone Made Out Of?

What is simethicone made out of? - simethicone

I know that has simethicone, but what has really happened? Nobody could say so far.


  1. a Sim with ethics! ... good, bad pun, but ... I looked for you Here's his definition:

    "A mixture of dimethyl polysiloxanes and silica gel antiflatulento used.

    ... But what the hell dimethylpolysiloxane?

    and wait .... Wikipedia gives the following definition:

    Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) silicon is the most widely used polymer-based organic, and is best known for its unusual rheological (or flow) properties. It is optically transparent and is generally regarded as inert, nontoxic and noncombustible. PDMS has been assigned CAS number 63148-62-9, and is sometimes also known as dimethicone. It is one of several types of silicone oil.

    There are more and seemed very committed

    So basically it is a silicone.

    I had an aunt Flatulation. received silicone breast implants. is a gas! lol

    BTW Wikipedia is a good source for these questions.

  2. Simethicone (Gas-X, Mylicon, Phazyme)

    Anti-foaming agent is used to relieve flatulence. A mixture of dimethyl polysiloxanes and silica gel. Molecular weight of 14,000 to 21,000. Category C, which means that studies have shown negative effects on animals, and there are no adequate and well controlled studies in pregnant women.
    No animal studies have been conducted and no adequate and well controlled studies in pregnant women.

    I also found additional information from another site that said:

    Simethicone is an oral anti-foaming agent agents used to control swelling, discomfort and pain caused by excess gas in the stomach or intestine. Chemically, simethicone is a mixture of polydimethylsiloxanes, which, by reducing the surface tension of bubbles of gas works, so that in large bubbles, which can be transmitted more easily by belching or flatulence unite to. Simethicone is not from the body in the blood, which absorbs a relatively safe with the worst sources of information about side effects such as bloating, constipation, diarrheaRhea, gas and heartburn. It is sometimes wrongly, that could Simethicone reduces belching and flatulence, but the speed with which the gas exits the tube, the increase belching and flatulence may increase
    (This page is n) for the 2nd to the source (.

    You were right, it is difficult to find information about this, but I hope it helps.

  3. hey i think its a mixture of silica and dimethylpolysiloxane?
