Activated Charcoal, 50 capsules
Its recorded use dates back to 1550 BC and in modern times is most widely used medicinally as a detoxifier and poison antidote. I always keep it on hand for spider bites, accidental ingestion of toxins or stomach bugs. (I also brush my teeth with it…) Activated charcoal is a safe and effective treatment for poisonings and the removal of toxins from the system. Whenever you take activated charcoal, it’s imperative to drink a lot of water per day. Activated charcoal can cause dehydration if adequate amounts of water aren’t consumed in tandem. In addition, this helps to flush out the toxins quickly and prevents constipation experienced by some individuals.
If you are taking any other medicine, do not take it within 2 hours of the activated charcoal. Taking other medicines together with activated charcoal may prevent the other medicine from being absorbed by your body. If you have any questions about this, check with your health care professional.
DOSAGE 1-2 CAPSULES ORALLY EVERY 4-6 HOURS AS NEEDED. Do not exceed 8 capsules within a 24 hour period.
