Works Wonders Review by
  • star

I always have a bottle of this in the cupboard. In fact I take a couple of tablets with me when I go out for dinner in a small container as well. I have leaky gut syndrome and a lot of foods cause me trouble. Mostly I avoid them but often when you are out it is difficult to do so. I can rely on this Charcoal to settle my stomach down. Also when my son was young, he developed an intolerance to wheat. Before we had worked out what it was that was causing him such terrible stomach pains, I found the only cure was Charcoal Tablets. After he took two of them, the pain dissipated within about 10 minutes. It has really worked wonders when we needed it.

Charcoal - Nature's Pharmacy Review by
  • star

Every family should have activated charcoal in their medicine cabinet. It is a fantastic detoxifier and is on hand whenever we get tummy upsets, from dodgy foods eaten or just off colour. Pop one or two capsules and it settles your stomach, often relieving diahorrea without having to take the usual anti-diahorrea tablets. BUT ... be careful if you are tasking other medications as it will interfere or null and void their actions. If you are taking other meds it would pay to check with your doctor or pharmacist. But generally, a great thing to have handy. Hospitals use charcoal when there are drug overdoses so it must work.

The perfect travelling companion Review by
  • star

I have just had my first substantial overseas trip where there was a lot of different food. I have a delicate digestive system and a large number of intolerances, so the activated charcoal was a Godsend. (Have never had it before but I read the reviews and decided to give it a try). I had others members of our group asking me for some to have themselves! I will definitely be recommending this product as it is also very affordable. Plus the great service of course. :-)

Essential for travel Review by
  • star

I'd never be without activated charcoal as just occasionally, something seem to upset my tummy - but without warning! A couple of these taken about 2 hours after my regular morning vitamins, makes sure I can leave the house safely :) I also take pro-biotics and plenty of water to keep my digestion in good order.

Does exactly what is expected Review by
  • star

Love this stuff. I'm currently on antibiotics and have had to take this product to ease gastric symptoms.. I take it at least an hour after medication. Works brilliantly. Great quick service from healthpost too!

Excellent product, highly recommended Review by
  • star

Very affordable and I am never without it! Best to be taken on its own without other medications as it may prevent other meds from being absorbed. Works wonders for all sorts of tummy aches, upsets and discomfort and absorbs impurities in the body. Even works a charm on that "morning after headache" due to too many wines the night before. Well worth keeping on hand.

Great for absorbing bad bacteria Review by
  • star

I have found this product very helpful for the family when we have been unwell. Only one thing important to mention, if you are on medication I would suggest you get doctors approval first. My daughter is a epileptic and the Activated Charcoal tablets coursed her to have a seizure as it absorbed her medication.
