Large amounts of activated charcoal can also “soak up” the toxins moving through your system.
Just thought that I would share this in the event that someone fails to research ‘activated charcoal’ before using it.
Check with your doctor before using activated charcoal on a regular basis — especially if you have a food allergy or vitamin/mineral deficiency. It is also recommended you wait a few hours between taking any other medication and taking charcoal to allow your medications time to absorb into your system. If you experience constipation, vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhea as a result of taking activated charcoal — or your heartburn gets worse — stop taking it and seek medical advice.
