How does Activated Charcoal work?
Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals inside its millions of tiny pores
The surface of activated charcoal has a negative electrical charge. This negative charge is like a magnet that causes positively charged toxins, gases and elements to attracted and bond.
Activated charcoal does not work by absorbing toxins. It binds with these toxins stopping them from being absorbed into your body and allowing the charcoal and toxins to pass threw threw over time.
Activated charcoal has the ability to attract other substances to its surface and hold them there. This is called “adsorption” (not absorption).
Activated charcoal can adsorb thousands of times its own weight in harmful substances. One teaspoonful of it has a surface area of more than 10,000 square feet.
