Protocol for Life Balance Activated Charcoal helps support digestive funciton. Its porous texture allows it to attract and trap toxins and gases that are typically present in the GI tract and carry them safely out of the body. In this way, activated charcoal can help to alleviate uncomfortable gas and bloating caused by gas-producing foods. Derived from non-GMO coconut shells. Powdered activated charcoal directly binds toxins present in the GI tract to its surface (adsorption) and also helps to break the enterohepatic cycle of certain compounds that are typically eliminated via bile, trapping them before they are reabsorbed in the intestine, thus resulting in lower blood levels of these compounds. While travelling through the GI tract, activated charcoal may also favor the back-diffusion of serum toxins into the GI lumen, thereby contributing to their elimination from the body. The fine particles of powdered activated charcoal allows for a large external surface area and low diffusional resistance, yielding a very high rate of adsorption. Elimination: Activated charcoal is eliminated in feces after oral administration. Vegetable Capsules. No chemicals are used to activate the charcoal. Recommended Use: Take 1 to 2 capsules daily as needed on an empty stomach or between meals, with at least 8 oz. of water, or as directed by a healthcare professional. Not for continuous use for more than one week.
