Activated charcoal helps counter the toxic effects of organic and inorganic poisons.
Activated Charcoal (carbo activatus).
Do not take dry activated charcoal as it may clog in the mouth and throat and cause chocking, always mix with liquid as suggested. 'Activated charcoal is relatively non-toxic taken by mouth and although unlikely may cause vomiting, constipation or diarrhea and colour the faeces black. 'Activated charcoal has the potential to reduce or neutralize the gastro-intestinal absorption of many drugs including salicylates, paracetamol, barbiturates and antidepressants. 'Although used to treat certain poisons and drug overdoses in doses of 50 grams every 4 hours or 25 grams every 2 hours it is not effective in the case of poisoning by strong acids, alkalis and other corrosive substances and its absorption capacity is too low to be of use in cases of iron salts, cyanide, Malathion, dicophane, methyl alcohol or ethylene. In cases of poisoning or drug overdose always obtain urgent professional medical assistance.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement. Adults: Add one to two heaped teaspoons of activated charcoal to a medium sized glass, add a little water to form a paste, then slowly add more water to form a slurry. Best taken on an empty stomach but may be taken when required. If necessary taste can be improved by adding sucrose
