Eden Healthfoods Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal is one of nature’s finest magnetic sponges for adsorbing toxins, pain from burns, poisons, pollutants and bacteria. It may be used without side effects or overdose. Eden Healthfoods Activated Charcoal is 100% natural and does not contain any additives, sweeteners, chemicals, or binders.
Eden Healthfoods Activated Charcoal is an ultra-fine powder derived from pure coconut shell fibre. It has been steam activated (unlike chemical activation) making it 3-5 times more porous. It has also been medicinally activated using a purification process which empties the carbon molecules completely, further increasing its surface area, which enhances absorption and drawing capacity (more than steam activation alone).
Although not an herb, charcoal is invaluable in a number of ways. Activated charcoal will adsorb and render harmless over 3,000 known drug residues, pesticides, insecticides and just about every harmful chemical known. It is pure carbon and will adsorb 29 of the 30 most dangerous poisons, thus neutralising them.
