Used for thousands of years by diverse cultures all around the world, activated charcoal powder is a magical material which has many uses.
This is due to the incredible number of tiny pores in the powder, which attract and eliminate impurities, toxins and other nasty things from your body. Activated charcoal adsorbs (binds to) unwanted materials in your body and carries them away before they can do more harm.
For this reason, activated charcoal is the first choice of emergency doctors to treat cases of accidental poisoning, drug or alcohol overdoses. At home, activated charcoal can even help treat tough cases of indigestion when taken before meals.
