Our activated charcoal powder is derived from Himalayan Bamboo which is 100% natural. “Activated charcoal” is similar to common charcoal but is subject to a steam process to increase the internal spaces or “pores”, in order to maximize the Charcoal’s ability to trap toxic chemicals.

The primary benefit of activated charcoal is its ability to trap toxins and usher them out of the body. The more pores available to house these toxins, the greater the charcoal's ability to do more with less, so to speak

Its toxin-trapping ability is all thanks to a process known as "adsorption" with a D. With adsorption, elements (the toxins) bind to a particular surface (the charcoal). Bamboo charcoal is especially effective in this process because it has a negative electric charge, attracting positively charged toxins to itself.
It's a fatal attraction for the toxins, but a glorious victory for you as you pursue a toxin-free life!
