    What is Activated Charcoal?

    Charcoal has traditionally been used to reduce intestinal gas and bloating after eating.¹ Activated charcoal is made by grinding charcoal into a fine powder and “activating” it by exposing it to oxygen and high temperatures. This changes its chemical structure, and it becomes permeated with thousands of tiny pores that can absorb chemicals, toxins and other substances. For this reason, activated charcoal has become a popular ingredient in various products, ranging from toothpaste and shampoo to face scrubs and water filters.

    Activated Charcoal FAQ's

    What is activated charcoal?

    Activated charcoal is simply charcoal that has been treated with oxygen at very high temperatures.1 This process changes the chemical structure of the material – making it more porous and expanding its surface area.

    Why is activated charcoal black?

    As activated charcoal is a result of burning carbon-rich materials such as wood to create charcoal, the result is a black and odourless substance. Exposing this to oxygen and even higher temperatures does not change its colour, so it appears – aside from looking more porous than normal – to be a normal piece of charcoal.

    How does activated charcoal work?

    Activated charcoal is made by grinding charcoal into a fine powder and “activating” it by exposing it to oxygen and elevated temperatures. This changes its chemical structure, and it becomes permeated with thousands of pores. It’s tiny pores that make this material so special – giving it the capability to effectively bind to and absorb chemicals, toxins, and other substances.

    Activated charcoal: what does the research say? 

    Activated charcoal is simply charcoal that has been treated with oxygen at very high temperatures to make it more porous – these pores are found to be extremely effective at binding and absorbing certain toxins and chemicals.

    While activated charcoal is scientifically proven to help reduce intestinal gases, there is very little research to support claims related to its benefits when included in cosmetic and other wellness products.

    Does activated charcoal have any benefits for your body?

    Lots of research has happened over the years to evaluate the effects of activated charcoal on intestinal gas. So much so that the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has suggested that there is enough evidence to support the use of activated charcoal to reduce excessive gases, as an authorised health claim, including contributing to reducing excessive flatulence after eating. They state that this beneficial effect is obtained with 1g of activated charcoal, which should be taken at least 30 minutes before and 1g shortly after the meal.

    How much activated charcoal should I take per day? 

    When supplementing with these, we recommend taking 1g at least 30 minutes before a meal, with another 1g taken shortly after the meal. This is an EFSA approved guidance for receiving a beneficial effect when it comes to reducing excessive flatulence, so this has become the benchmark for the beneficial physiological effect of activated charcoal.

    When should I take activated charcoal? 

    We recommend taking 1g of activated charcoal at least 30 minutes before a meal, with another 1g taken shortly after the meal.

    Who should take activated charcoal?

    Activated charcoal is a great choice for anyone who suffers from intestinal gas after meals – helping to improve your general wellbeing.
