Naturmade’s Activated Charcoal is incredibly effective at relieving bloating, indigestion, food poisoning or allergic reactions to food. It can do this because of its microscopically porous and highly absorbent surface, which enables Activated Charcoal to suck up poisons and gases, such as amines, peptotoxins of decomposed foods, bacterial toxins, nitrogenous and organic wastes, carbon dioxide, and methane, in your stomach and intestine.
These damaging substances are adsorbed by the porous surfaces of these tiny charcoal particles, and escorted through to evacuation of the bowel. Activated Charcoal is not digested or dissolved by the acids or alkalis of the digestive tract and therefore is not assimilated into the blood stream, rendering it absolutely non-toxic. It also has no effect on neurotransmitters which means it is not addictive in any way.
