How does activated charcoal work?
Activated charcoal has a surface with many small pores, which makes it a powerful adsorbent. The surface attaches to toxins and unwanted substances in the body and draws these out. Activated charcoal is therefore popular in connection with detox and various cleansing treatments. It can also be used with meals to relieve an upset stomach and gas. The beneficial effect is achieved by consuming ca. 1 gram of activated charcoal about 30 minutes before a meal and another ca. 1 gram immediately after a meal, which corresponds to 2 capsules of Healthwell Activated Charcoal.
Activated charcoal has long been used as a component in both medication for acute poisoning (charcoal suspension) and in sewage plants as a charcoal filter for water purification. The thing to keep in mind, however, is that charcoal not only attaches to toxic substances, but can also carry other substances out of the body. Therefore, it is recommended not to use medication along with charcoal capsules. Wait at least 2 hours in between usage to avoid preventing uptake of prescription drugs.
