The use of Activated Charcoal dates back to 2000 years ago where it was used to treat water and air purification, as well as to cure a variety of ailments including poisoning.
Activated charcoal is pure carbon specially processed to make it highly adsorbent of particles and gases in the body’s digestive system. Its healing effects have been well documented since as early as 1550 B.C. by the Egyptians. Today it is used in some hospitals after a person swallows or adsorbs almost any toxic drug or chemical.
