Nature's Sunshine Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal, is carbon that has been activated with oxidised gases (such as steam or air) at high temperature, increasing its adsorption capacity by making it very porous.
When activated charcoal is taken, it acts like a “magnet” to adsorb gas, toxins or foreign substances from the body.
When taken internally, activated charcoal supports the digestive-intestinal system to adsorb excess gas in the gastrointestinal tract, this helps provide relief from bloating, fullness and flatulence.
