Charcoal is naturally active and adsorbent and has a long history of use as a filter, as an adsorbent, and as an antidote to poisons. Historical records of its use in these areas and others go far back into history as early as 1500 BC in Egypt. Hippocrates, circa 400 BC and then Pliny, AD 50 recorded the use of charcoal in a wide range of applications, and the principal use appears to have been to absorb unpleasant odours, and gas/smells from within the intestinal tract. Happy Tummy is made up of specially selected, 100% pure hardwood charcoal sourced from sustainable woodlands. It contains no fillers, binders or additives. It is made from naturally active charcoal produced in a traditional way.
Happy Tummy Charcoal does not take out vitamins and minerals from the system. References which allude to this concern the regular use of 'activated' charcoal, which has superadsorbent properties. In fact, field experience has shown that because it re-balances the system, Happy Tummy Charcoal actually facilitates the uptake of nutrients.
