Why take...

ac­ti­vated char­coal

Irish Sunday Mirror - - YOUR HEALTH -

This sup­ple­ment – a tablet or cap­sule – is made by heat­ing char­coal at high tem­per­a­ture, which mixes in oxy­gen to raise its abil­ity to ab­sorb.

PROS Tak­ing it af­ter meals can ease a bloated stom­ach and wind by ab­sorb­ing the ex­cess gas in your gut. Sup­ple­ments are taste­less and do not leave your mouth black.

CONS Can­not be taken if you have an in­tes­tine con­di­tion or while you’re on other med­i­ca­tion.
