Why is Charcoal a great ingredient to help detox and purify the body?

Activated charcoal draws bacteria, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of the skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds.

 
 
 

We carry some of the best charcoal products in the non-toxic and green industry and the first product we are showcasing is geared more towards handling bloating. Whether you are leaving the gym, hitting the gym, meeting your girl, or simply want to target some embarrassing bloat- the Biocol Labs ‘something for bloated tums’ has got you. 

 

Biocolabs 'Something for Bloated Tums'

 
 

Did you know activated charcoal capsules are a natural remedy to a bloated stomach? They work by absorbing excess gas from within your gut to relieve flatulence and feelings of fullness. This is a great source if you get bloated after eating certain foods and the packaging makes it easy to carry on you inconspicuously. 

Most digestive remedies are made of synthetic ingredients, which our bodies were not made to absorb. That’s why we love this product. ‘Something for bloated tums’ is a plant-based fix made from probiotics, ginger and chloride, that contributes to a normal digestion. It also contains fennel and green anise, which contributes to the normal function of the intestinal tract. It’s also vegan, GMO free, refined sugar free, gluten free, lactose free.
