Activated Charcoal – Certified food & pharmaceutical grade, made from coconut shells.
The use of charcoal as a medicinal agent dates back to 1,500 BC. Charcoal is used all across the world in emergency situations such as poisoning and drug overdose. Our pharmaceutical grade activated charcoal works by trapping toxins, heavy metals and chemical residues in its tiny pores. This is known as the process of adsorption, whereby a chemical reaction occurs that binds elements to a surface.
