Most people think of a backyard cookout when they hear the word charcoal.
But to an herbalist, charcoal is an important supplement.
Man has used charcoal for over 2,000 years because of its ability to
absorb poisons and help remove them from the body.
Charcoal is highly absorbent. It has been used for ages to help with
chemical poisoning (as in drug overdoses), severe diarrhea, food poisoning
and for severe gas and bloating relief.
Charcoal may also be used topically as a poultice to help pull the meanness
out of insect and spider bites. It also absorbs irritants and toxins
in the digestive tract. It may also help lower cholesterol levels.
Nature’s Sunshine uses only the finest pharmaceutical grade charcoal
in its Activated Charcoal products. And our encapsulated charcoal is
much easier to swallow than charcoal powder or drink mixes.
