100% Pure Activated Charcoal by Source Naturals has been treated to increase its ability to attract and hold gases, liquids, and dissolved substances to its surface (a process known as adsorbtion).* Activated charcoal is used within the digestive tract to trap and prevent chemicals from absorbing into the body. The activated charcoal stays inside the GI tract and eliminates toxins when the person has a bowel movement.
Activated charcoal only attaches to substances that are inside the stomach or intestines. Once a chemical or drug has been absorbed into the GI tract, it is no longer able to be adsorbed by the activated charcoal.
