What is Activated Charcoal?

Charcoal is usually associated with grilling, fire and heat, so it's not the most obvious remedy for issues like heartburn or bloating. However, activated charcoal is different from the charcoal most people have encountered in their life. This type of charcoal is made by using steam to activate charred wood with oxygen. The result is a porous substance with highly absorbent properties. It traps and holds substances, which is what allows it to function so effectively at relieving intestinal discomfort.

Besides reducing gas and bloating, activated charcoal can be used to soothe an upset stomach, heartburn or other types of gastrointestinal distress. In fact, it's been used for these very purposes for hundreds of years. Other uses include reducing body odor, fighting bad breath, clearing skin and supporting detoxification.

How to Take Activated Charcoal

If you choose activated charcoal capsules, you can take one or two capsules a few times a day as needed. When taken between mealtimes, it can help with intestinal discomfort and other associated issues. Activated charcoal powder can be stirred into water or soymilk for internal use. It can also be used to absorb unpleasant odors in the home or for DIY skincare remedies.

If you'd like to enjoy the health benefits of activated charcoal, be sure to stock up on capsules or powder online at Penn Herb Company.
