It has a negative charge, which, when consumed, causes it to attract positively charged toxins and gases in your gut. Because activated charcoal is not absorbed by your body, it carries the toxins and gases out with it when excreted.

Activated charcoal has many health benefits. It can reduce effects of poisons, reduce strain on the kidney by helping eliminate waste, reduce cholesterol by preventing its absorption and help with symptoms of gastric distress such as gas and bloating. It also has beauty benefits and is used in teeth whitening and skin treatments.

Activated charcoal can be purchased in local chemists in either tablet or powder form.
