About our activated charcoal

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.

Activated charcoal can be used to treat skin ailments, diarrhoea, bad breath, constipation and body odour. It can be used as a poultice which may help treat insect stings, poison ivy, cholera, dysentery, bites and inflammation.

When using activated charcoal, it is best to take it between meals and a few hours after using any vitamin or mineral supplements, as it may interfere with the absorption of these into the body. It must also be stored in a properly sealed container away from heat and moisture. It should preferably be used with water only, or taken alone, as anything else such as fruit juice will cause it to lose a great deal of its effectiveness.

In large doses, activated charcoal may cause stools to turn black. This is normal. In large doses, it may also lead to diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting. Those suffering from obstruction of the bowel should not use this product.

Suggested Use:

Adults and children over 12 years old, stir one teaspoon is a glass of water, take well after meals by mouth up to 3 times a day.

Important Notes when Using Activated Charcoal:
1. Never take activated charcoal at the same time of day as other supplements. Give yourself at least 2 hrs between use.
2. Because activated charcoal will bind to certain medications please advise your doctor before using this if you are taking medications.
3. Be sure to drink plenty of water afterwards.
4. Activated charcoal should be combined with a good fibre source such as psyllium powder or celery seed powder that will effectively push the charcoal through the intestines and out in the faeces.
5. Best to take before bed and 3-4 hours after eating dinner.
