How does it work?
Activated charcoal is a type of charcoal that is processed to make it more porous. This porous texture is what distinguishes it from other types of charcoals, including the type used for barbecuing.
Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in the gut, preventing their absorption. The charcoal's porous texture has a negative electrical charge, which causes it to attract positively charged molecules, such as toxins and gases. This helps it trap toxins and chemicals in the gut.
Because activated charcoal is not absorbed by your body, it can carry the toxins bound to its surface out of your body in faeces.
