What is Activated Charcoal good for?

Activated charcoal is a fine black powder made from bone char, coconut shells, peat, petroleum coke, coal, olive pits or sawdust. It’s very similar to bentonite clay in its ability to absorb chemicals and waste products.


  • If you have been poisoned, activated charcoal can save your life (binds poisons)

  • Helpful if somebody has overdosed on drugs

  • Great for detox

  • Good if you are exposed to mold and you want to rid your system of it

  • Good for indigestion

  • Good for flatulence

  • Good for a hangover

How to consume it

If you take it right away after being exposed to poison, you can deactivate about 70% of the toxin. If you take it 30 minutes after you are exposed to a poison, it can actually get rid of 50% of it. If you wait for 3 hours you’re only going to get rid of 20%. So the faster you take it, the more toxins it’s going to pull out of your body.

Follow the directions on the label for the proper dosage.

Where to get it

You can get it in capsules or pills at a health food store or order it online.
