Many Uses for Activated Charcoal
Posted by Reviewer1487108 on May 21, 2009
There are so many uses for activated Charcoal. I recommend that every household keep this product in stock. It is great for those suffering from diarrhea or bloating. We have also used it when we got food poisoning. It should be kept in household where small children are present in case of accidental poisonings. Then, I keep it in case of scorpion or bee/wasp stings, or spider bites. I was bit by a brown recluse several years ago, and I opened a capsule and made a paste with a few drops of water. I applied it to the bite and 24 hours later, it had absorbed all the poison. The bite was completely healed within a week!

Everyone should have this in their home. I live in Japan and after Fukushima exploded my family started having fever, chills, and upset stomach, and under my fingernails turned black! I then remembered as a child my mother was in the hospital and the staff accidentally gave her a medication she was highly allergic took and she had a severe, life threatening reaction and they made her drink pure powered charcoal mixed with water to get out the poison. When I remembered this I gave my family this charcoal and everyone of us got better and my fingernails returned to normal. So for cleansing the body of chemicals and poison it works.
Works for me!

I can name 3 things this has done for me right off the bat-- 1. When I wake up with heartburn I take two of these and I am able to go back to sleep immediately. 2. When making cookies with my children I allowed myself one more cookie and really upset my stomach with all of the over-indulgence of sweetness-- I popped two of these capsules with a glass of water and with in a few minutes my stomach ache was gone. 3. I felt a sore throat and ear ache coming on and I took 2 of these in the morning.. then two in the afternoon.. and by the next day I felt no symptoms of infections setting in.
For brushing teeth.

My teeth have been off-white for years. After brushing with Charcoal for only a week, there is a noticeable move toward whiteness! Amazing, when you think about it. Black powder produces whiter teeth.
Charcoal- a real life saver

I would never be without charcoal, as charcoal can save your life. Used this charcoal on a spider bite. I think it was a brown recluse because of what happened, but cannot be sure since I didn't see the spider that bit me. Just noticed that my elbow began to feel as if it had been scraped. But it had no signs of a scrape, just one or two holes. Within 48 hours a small ulcerated sore appeared. I immediately began to treat it with charcoal mixed with a tiny amount of water. It never got worse and began to heal. Within five days there was nothing but a scab. I like this brand of charcoal. And I like i-herb's prices. I can't find charcoal in the drug store for less than $12.
Awesome for MCS patients and food poisoning

Mops up all the toxins off the blood & gut and excess ammonia before it enters the brain. A life saver in case of accidental overdoses of prescription meds etc. and with food poisoning.

This product helps if you are experiencing bloat, stomach illness or just ate too much and need your food to digest properly. The greatest thing is you feel better shortly after you digest 2 capsules with any discomfort related to these symptoms

We take these with fiber when we are concerned about removing toxins from the digestive tract—chemicals, bacteria, signs of poisoning, or after eating something moldy. This brand seems to be stronger than our previous brand, so we can take less.
works for gas
Posted by Reviewer1634523 on Aug 26, 2009
i've bought quite a few products from iherb, but this would be the one with the most noticeable effect. Really helped my stomach/colon upsets due to gas & i won't be without it now! Recommended.
Saver for morning sickness!
Posted by TrueReviews on Nov 15, 2013
I took this supplement because I am pregnant, and I read that it helps with morning sickness. It actually works! I don't take it daily, only when I feel nauseated. Activated charcoal adsorbs a wide range of toxins in the body. Morning sickness may be caused by low level toxins, therefore activated charcoal can help a great deal. Daily I use liquid bentonite clay for detox puposes ie adsorption of heavy metals and pesticides. Yerba Prima, Great Plains, Bentonite, Detox. Click on my username for more reviews!
