Activated charcoal is a remarkable cleansing agent for the body. Heat-treated in such a way that the surface of the charcoal is made jagged and craggy for the maximization of surface area, activated charcoal can bind and remove toxins with which it comes in contact. Remarkably versatile, activated charcoal may help with a number of health issues including relief of excess gas/flatulence (consult your healthcare practitioner to find out all its potential uses).
Common uses for USP-certified / medicinal-use charcoal such as this include poison control, detox supplementation, dental cleansing, and the extraction of toxins from wounds. Charcoal from Source of Life is available in capsule or powdered form.
