Super Fine Coconut Shell Activated Charcoal Powder


DETOX 1600 USP Super Fine Coconut Shell Activated Charcoal Powder: A very high activity medicinal charcoal powder specifically developed to be taken internally for the treatment of poisoning, drug overdose, and food poisoning associated with severe diarrhea and vomiting.

This is a powerfully adsorptive activated charcoal. With a Phenazone Adsorption of 40 - 50: a typical Iodine number of 1500, and a BET Surface Area of 1550 - 1600 m2/gm, DETOX 1600 USP not only goes to work within seconds, but quickly adsorbs large amounts of toxins in the GI tract.

DETOX 1600 USP  also works very well for bloating, intestinal gas (flatulence), acid reflux, and for symptoms of lower bowel irritation.

DETOX 1600 USP is made from virgin coconut charcoal. It is steam activated using water vapour at high temperature (up to 1000°C) to produce a very homogeneous micro-porosity (and some meso-porosity) that results in a consistent rate of adsorption for thousands of different natural and man-made poisons.  DETOX 1600 USP has been processed to meet the purification standards required for medical use and complies with both the US Pharmacopeia (USP 34) and the European Pharmacopeia (EP 7th Edition). DETOX 1600 USP is a very light, fine powder free from any grittiness.
