Activated charcoal has honeycomb like characteristics which give it a very large surface area and makes it highly adsorptive. This term means that when taken internally the product draws gases, chemicals and toxins present in the gastrointestinal tract to its surface area and then binds them. Once attached, the offending substances are carried away by the charcoal, which is NOT absorbed into the blood stream, to be excreted with faecal matter. Activated charcoal also supports the health and vitality of the skin as capsules can be opened and charcoal applied topically to help neutralise stings, bites and wounds.
Radiance® Activated Charcoal's highly adsorptive characteristics make it an ideal first aid cabinet essential for when you eat something suspicious, for when the kids bring home the tummy lurgies to share with the family, for when your other half fumes out the house and also topically when the sand flies are biting. Radiance® Activated Charcoal is also a definite back pack essential to ensure you don’t just see the inside of the bathroom on trips to India, Bali or Thailand!
