FOR THE TREATMENT OF INDIGESTION, WIND & HEARTBURN
When activated charcoal is taken orally, it is dispersed throughout the digestive system, as it passes naturally through our digestive system substances are bound to the particles of activated charcoal forming a complex. Activated charcoal does not alter the chemistry of the body and does not form complexes with nutrients or minerals or food supplements.
J L Bragg's Medicinal Charcoal capsules are made from activated charcoal and produced from coconut shells which has been purified for use as a pharmaceutical active ingredient, commercial forms of charcoal or activated charcoal which are not approved for pharmaceutical applications may contain byproducts which may cause harm.
If you are using prescribed medications J L Bragg's recommend that you discuss the use of activated charcoal with your medical adviser.
Bragg's tells us that charcoal tablets give 100% relief of indigestion, wind and heartburn and certainly after 150 years, you'd think they've had long enough to gather feed back and evidence. They're certainly one of the most popular supplements in our store.
I tend to think that charcoal is more popular among the older age groups because their digestive systems are weaker and in need of more support, but that age group of course know it as one of the few products from around the war that they could easily find. Nevertheless, it's effectiveness has ensured its continued popularity today.
The good thing about charcoal tablets is that they are safe, although those using conventional drugs should let their doctors know because the charcoal can lessen the effect of medication, they absorb quite a bit in the digestive system. They are also easy to take, after a meal, and easy to carry around. So they're highly convenient with all age groups especially when you find yourself in a restaurant or socialising with family and friends.

J L Bragg's Medicinal Charcoal capsules are produced from pharmaceutical grade gelatine, which ensures the activated charcoal is released within 2-4 minutes, veggie capsules are produced from materials which dissolve at a much slower rate and may take over 20 minutes to release the contents. It is for this reason JL Braggs Charcoal capsules release the active faster and get to work relieving the symptoms of indigestion faster than some other products.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q What are the benefits of using Charcoal?
A One of the benefits of taking Medicinal Charcoal as opposed to other products on the market is that because it is not a drug, it has no direct action on any organ of the body, it does not enter the blood stream nor is the charcoal itself adsorbed into your body. All of it passes out of your system along with the toxins and gases it has collected on its journey. If you are already on medication it would be wise to consult your doctor or pharmacist as the Medicinal Charcoal may adsorb other medicines and lessen their effect.
Q What is the best way to take the charcoal?
A Charcoal is most effective if taken shortly after a meal or when the problem arises; the important thing is that the charcoal reaches the stomach where it can absorb the toxins and gases that have built up within the digestion system and in the course of time pass them naturally and easily out of the system.
Q My stools have turned black, is this normal?
A Yes, there is nothing to worry about, it is a sure sign that the charcoal has passed through your digestive system.
Q May I take them with other medicines or Paracetamol?
A The charcoal may adsorb or lessen the effect of the medicine. We suggest that you consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are on medication.
Q May I take them while pregnant or nursing a baby?
A Yes, they may be taken during pregnancy and breast feeding.
