A study in the American Journal of Gastroenterology found that activated charcoal helps to prevent intestinal gas following a meal. To reduce gas and bloating, take 500 milligrams one hour before a typical gas-producing meal and follow with a full glass of water.
6. It Removes Toxins From The Body
Most pesticides and harmful chemicals bind to the surface of activated charcoal, helping to prevent absorption in the body. In the case of poison ingestion or a drug overdose, call 911 immediately. Activated charcoal can also be used in cases of food poisoning, when nausea and diarrhea are present. Adults should take 25 grams when symptoms arise. Children should be given 10 grams.
