Activated Charcoal is a supplement with a variety of uses including: upset stomach, gas and bloating, hangovers, poisoning, detox, spot acne treatment, face masks, and teeth whitening. Because activated charcoal is not absorbed by your body, it can carry the toxins out of your body through feces. You may either take a capsule, or break it open to mix in liquid.
Activated charcoal may reduce the absorption of certain medications. Therefore, individuals taking medications should consult their healthcare professional prior to taking. It may also temporarily turn stools black.
