In today’s world the concentration of man-made toxins is constantly growing. Also food is refined and deprived of natural nutrients and of low quality. This alone can leave the body feeling intoxicated, bloated and tired. Fortunately there are simple natural ways that can be used to quickly alleviate these problems. One of the most effective is Activated Charcoal. It is a potent natural remedy used to trap toxins and chemicals in its millions of tiny pores, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t reabsorb them. It is famous for its ability to effectively and quickly alleviate uncomfortable bloating and gas. It works by binding the gas that causes discomfort in the gastrointestinal tract. Activated charcoal is an NHS-approved medication commonly used to relieve various gastro-intestinal symptoms associated with hyperacidity, indigestion, and flatulence. Some physicians also use it to deal with certain types of chemical and drug poisoning. Activated charcoal is also an excellent body odour absorber and helps maintain healthy liver function by assisting this organ in its efforts to detoxify the body.
