Activated Charcoal is pure carbon, and is considered the most adsorptive material in the world.
One gram of charcoal has the surface area of 500 to 1500sq metres, and each particle of charcoal has millions of tiny airspaces. These spaces allow activated charcoal to adsorb many times its own weight of poisons, toxins and harmful chemicals and allowing them to be flushed from the body.

The most common side effects include:
Black stools. The reason for this is due to the colour of the activated charcoal. If your stools are suddenly very black, it does not mean that there is anything wrong your stools. In fact, the black colour is completely harmless, and can hardly be called a side effect.
Constipation is another potential side effect. The charcoal powder must be mixed with water when you take it. We recommend that when you take Pure Eden Activated Charcoal internally, you follow it with a second glass of water. If you are at all inclined to constipation, keep your system well hydrated to prevent any problems. You can also take the charcoal powder in a slurry form to help avoid constipation hassles. See our dosage page to learn how to make a slurry.
