DMSO Activated Charcoal - Detoxifies / Adsorbs toxins

About: Activated Charcoal

Chemically adsorbs (i.e. attaches not absorbs) toxins

What is it?

Activated charcoal has been made under controlled conditions - usually limiting oxygen, which significantly increases the adsorptive nature of the charcoal. Ordinary carcoal is simpy charred wood .

Activated charcoal adsorbs and inactivates toxins - E.g. snake and spider, venom, tylenol (acetaminophen), aspirin, penicillin, nicotine, cocaine, opium,  gasoline, kerosene, mercuric chloride,  antimony, arsenic, cyanide,  strychnine, and hemlock.

Activated charcoal may not adsorb alcohol
