    Activated Charcoal Capsules

    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.

    • May provide relief from bloating, indigestion, food poisoning or allergic reactions to food
    • Potential antidote to poisoning: As an emergency antidote to swallowed poisons, activated charcoal is without equal among known and commonly used absorbents. It is an antidote in practically all swallowed poisons.
    • May aid in mild to severe food poisoning: Nausea, vomiting, foul smelling eructation (burping), cramps, rumbling in the intestines and diarrhoea are some of the symptoms of food poisoning. Naturmade’s CharcoCaps ® and CharcoTabs ® absorb any offending substances and can stop symptoms in under an hour.
    • May aid in drug overdose: Naturmade’s CharcoCaps ® and CharcoTabs ® can absorb drugs that have been ingested. If taken immediately after the drug has been swallowed, it will absorb enough to prevent many toxic side effects.

    Suggested use:  As a general daily detox agent: 1-4 capsules daily with a glass of water.

    • Stomach Ache, Food Poisoning: 2-4 capsules taken immediately and an additional 2 capsules every 6 hours thereafter, or until the symptoms subside.
    • Hangover: While not a cure for a hangover, taking charcoal after a night out, prior to falling asleep and as soon as you wake up, will serve to ‘soak’ up the residue and toxins left over from alcohol consumption. Take 5 CharcoCaps prior to sleep and repeat upon waking. Drink up to 500ml of water at the same time. Check out our specially formulated Naturmade So-Sob’r.
    • Diarrhoea: Research suggests that it may be useful for diarrhoea. Take 5-8 capsules immediately and a further 2-4 capsules every few hours or until symptoms subside.


    Further information:

    Activated charcoal is not toxic (and since it is not absorbed in the intestines, it has no impact on the kidneys by itself), however one needs to be aware of the following: Due to its highly adsorbent (soaking up) properties, any medication you are taking should not be taken an hour prior to or an hour after taking activated charcoal. Due to the fact that activated charcoal is not absorbed into your system, the charcoal will be excreted completely, which may darken the colour of your stool. This is completely harmless and normal. Large quantities of charcoal may cause mild constipation. This will self-correct once you cease taking the product.
