Is activated charcoal good for blood cleansing?
The main internal use of charcoal is absorption of bacterial toxins as an aid to digestion, especially in chronic diarrhoea or digestive gases. If this applies to you, then charcoal will likely be helpful as part of a blood cleansing program. Avoid charcoal supplements with a high sodium content.
Cleansing the blood involves a nourishing, toxin-free diet and support of all elimination systems: the bowels, the urinary system, the lungs, and the skin. There is information on the diet and supportive herbs on our web site at www.richters.com. Choose Q&A from the main menu, then enter "detox" for the search.
