- you cannot find it naturally in foods How does it work Activated charcoal is verynbspmicro-porous it is produced to have a very fine particle size Just 1000mg 1g has a surface area anywhere between 500m 2 & 1000m 2 The small pores increase thenbspsurface areanbspavailable fornbspadsorption this is different fromnbspabsorptionnbsp Adsorption is a process in which atoms & molecules attach themselves onto a solid or liquid surfacenbsp In other words the toxic substance attaches to the surface of the charcoalnbsp Absorption occurs when a substance passes into or through a substance like water passing into a sponge In the case of excess intestinal gas the charcoal works by absorbing gas in the digestive systemnbsp Because charcoal is not digested it stays inside the gastrointestinal systemnbspand eliminates the toxins it has adsorbed when you have a bowel movement In addition to adsorption of toxins activated charcoal may also adsorb food nutrientsnbspvitamins & minerals therefore you should avoid consuming this in excess every day Because the charcoal is not absorbed by the body there is no evidence to suggest that activated charcoal should not be used during pregnancy or breast feedingnbsp Charcoal tablets may not be suitable for you if you are currently taking other medication This is because the charcoal might adsorb the medication & make it less effective
