What is so special about Activated Charcoal?
Activated Charcoal has been used for thousands of years for its adsorbing properties.
Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in its millions of tiny pores.
Activated Charcoal does not absorb the toxins, instead it works through the chemical process of ADSORBING.
Adsorbing is the chemical reaction where elements bind to a surface.
Example after consuming activated charcoal, toxins already in your system bind to the charcoal allowing for quicker elimination, while preventing the absorption in the body.
This is why Charcoal is often found in water filters an used to treat acute poisoning in hospitals.
