Activated charcoal is a powerful adsorbent and is therefore often used to treat gas problems and intoxications.
Activated charcoal from coconut peels is usually submitted to a special preparation after its carbonization, to heighten its porosity. This serves one sole purpose: to enhance its adsorption power.
Activated charcoal is well tolerated by the digestive system. It absorbs and eliminates everything that is not desirable for a healthy system (food additives, residues from pesticides, chemical fertilizers, toxic bacteria from fish and other foods).
It is used to neutralize gas and flatulence, and alleviates certain troubles caused by gas and the digestive process.
