Charcoal (Activated) is a finely ground encapsulated powder that is
made from wood that has been exposed to very high temperatures in
the absence of air. Charcoal itself has been used over decades for its
known effectiveness in absorbing and expelling intestinal gas.
Charcoal is classified as an "adsorbent" substance, and for this
reason, it's the popular choice among hospitals today for the
treatment of drug over doses and poisonings
Charcoal (Activated) may also be used for relieving a variety of ailments,
such as indigestion, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, high cholesterol,
intestinal gas and bloating. Charcoal's ability to adsorb and prevent
substances from dislodging or reabsorbing into the body makes it a
popular choice for detoxifying
Applied topically, Charcoal also may help draw out poisons and toxins
from wounds, skin irritations, as well as insect bites and stings.
Limit the consumption of Charcoal
because it will also absorb nutrients.
