Charcoal Capsules (40 Count)
Our Activated Charcoal, made from Organic Coconut Shell, comes in easy-to-take, vegan, non-GMO capsules derived from pine trees. Activated charcoal is charcoal that has undergone an activation process giving it greater adsorption ability due to increased surface area. Activated charcoal is suggested for use in the adsorption of certain types of ingested toxic substances, which may support overall health.
Since limited studies have been done on the use of activated charcoal for occasional gas and bloating, we recommend speaking with your healthcare professional to determine the best dosage for you or your family.
Each bottle comes with 20-40 servings.

Q: What are charcoal capsules for?
A: Activated charcoal is suggested for use in the adsorption of certain types of ingested toxic substances. There has also been some research involving its usage for gas and bloating, but there is little evidence showing its benefit in this arena due to little testing and conflicting results. Varying amounts of activated charcoal have been used/suggested depending on the specific purpose for which this product is taken. To determine the best dosage for you or your family in a specific situation, be sure to speak with your healthcare professional or your local poison control center.**
Q: Is charcoal safe to ingest?
A: Our charcoal capsules are made of activated charcoal, derived from organic coconut shells. Activated
charcoal differs from regular charcoal because it goes through an activation process to make them more porous, allowing it to filter and adsorb more material. Activated charcoal is considered generally safe to ingest on an as-needed basis. In order to determine what is best for you, we recommend speaking with your physician or healthcare professional.
