Activated charcoal produced from coconut shells.
Active ingredient: Activated Charcoal, BPC 1934 (5 – 10 microns).
Activated charcoal is a non-toxic antidote and is one of the world’s oldest detoxifier that has been used as far back as the Pharaohs and possibly even longer. When administered orally, activated charcoal has an amazing ability to extract thousands of times its own weight in gases, heavy metals, and other chemicals. Activated charcoal is known as an agent for cleansing and assisting the healing process of the body. Activated charcoal is produced from coconut shells that are heated to very high temperatures to remove any organic matter. It is then exposed to super heated steam to activate the charcoal which increases the surface area and absorbency of the material by over 300%. Pharmaceutical grade activated charcoal can be up to 300 times more potent than natural charcoal. Activated charcoal is composed of fine black granules that are odourless and tasteless.
If you are feeding any medications, it is best to feed Activated Charcoal at least 2 hours apart from them as it may interfere with absorption. If you are using veterinary prescribed medications, we recommend that you discuss the use of activated charcoal with your vet.
