Charcoal 活性炭

Charcoal has been used as a folk remedy as far back as recorded history. North American Indians used charcoal for the treatment of gas pains long before our forefathers came to this continent.

Homeopathic physicians have used charcoal throughout the world for more than 200 years.

Charcoal is rated in Category 1 (safe and effective) status by the FDA for acute toxic poisoning.

Charcoal has been an official remedy in the United States for at least 100 years, and was eliminated from the U.S. Pharmacopoeia about 1950, not because it was ineffective, but because of its general disuse in American medicine following the phenomenal growth of the drug industry.

The light and fluffy black powder of charcoal has been used as a officially recognized antidote since the 19th century.

It is easy to make by a destructive distillation of organic materials such as wood pulp, petroleum coke, coals, peat, sawdust, wood char, paper mill waste, bone, and coconut shells.

Any kind of wood such as willow, eucalyptus, pine, oak and others are adequate sources of wood charcoal. Charcoals made from vegetable materials such as wood and coal contains about 90% carbon.
