Overlooked Effects of Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal a big trend not too long ago, slowly resurfacing like pulled weeds. Sure there are possible benefits in consuming activated charcoal, but the risks outweigh them more. No solid evidence supports claims that activated charcoal helps with Traveler's Diarrhea, bloating, stomach cramps, or gas. The side effects of activated charcoal have not been well documented but were mild when it was tested on healthy people. It may absorb nutrients, enzymes, and antibiotics in the intestine and mask the severity of fluid loss. It can prevent your body from digesting food and absorbing nutrients. As well as make medications and supplements less effective.
These are some of the many more meds that will be affected:
Any and all inhibitors and Boosters tbh
Chronic pain meds
Any sedatives or pain meds
Warning: Children should not be given activated charcoal for diarrhea and dehydration.
BUT IF YOU DO WISH TO TRY IT OUT
Be sure to consult with your doctor and see if it is alright for you to take some!
