What is activated charcoal?

Activated charcoal in capsule form is another formulation of do ked. A fine black carbon powder made from natural materials such as medicinal wood like “TUGAS” & other hard wood. Unlike the plain charcoal powder, activated charcoal capsule has highabsorption properties, meaning that it keeps certain substance from being absorbed in the body’s gastrointestinal tract.

Some research has shown that it may help in the reduction od LDL (bad) cholesterol, and the increase of HDL (good) cholesterol. It may also possibly lower the absorption of certain fatty acids and fatty alcohols and positively effect lipid levels.
