ACCL
 
A natural way to treat
 
  • Powerful activated charcoal is an emergency decontaminant in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
  • Activated charcoal is considered to be the most effective single agent available
  • It is used after a person swallows or absorbs any toxic drug or chemical.
  • Activated charcoal is estimated to reduce up to 60% of poisonous substances being absorbed.
  • It works by adsorbing (soaking up) chemicals, thus reducing their toxicity (poisonous nature) thorough the entire length of the GI tract (stomach and small and large intestines).

HOW IT WORKS:
 
  • Activated charcoal exerts its effects by adsorbing of a wide variety of drugs and chemicals.
  • The toxic substance attaches to the surface of the charcoal. Because charcoal is not ‘’digested,’’ it stays inside the GI tract eliminates the toxin when the person has a bowel movement.
