Activated Charcoal - Chocolate Flavored EnteraKlenz / 525 grams - 30 servings
|The bentonite in this product generates a strong electromagnetic field which allows it to attract and hold unwanted, non-nutritive substances such as pesticides and other toxins so that they can be eliminated from the body. Bentonite clay's negative charge is responsible for its detoxifying properties -- it is a magnet for many toxic elements present in the human body (heavy metals, pesticides, and free radicals), which are positively charged. This physical pulling power also has an absorbent action (like sticky paper) as toxins are drawn into the porous surface of the clay which are then eliminated from the body.|

Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent gritty black material commonly found in air and water filters. Activated charcoal is created by carbonizing organic matter in a kiln under anaerobic conditions and activating the material with oxidizing gases like steam or air at high temperatures. This oxidative process erodes the charcoals internal surfaces and increases its adsorption capacity by creating an internal network of very fine pores. Usually bone char, coconut shells, peat, coal, petroleum coke, and sawdust are the starting materials for making activated charcoal.
As a general rule, a single large dose of activated charcoal should be taken as soon as possible after ingesting a poison. The amount of activated charcoal should exceed the toxic substance by a factor of eight (a ratio of 8:1). In other words, if you take 5 grams of a chemical, you need to take at least 40 grams of activated charcoal. Other researchers recommend different dosages. Some experts believe a 10 to 1 ratio is correct. Still other experts recommend a fixed amount of 50 to 100 grams. I recommend ingesting a minimum of 50 grams of bulk activated charcoal because ingesting large amounts of activated charcoal is harmless, and taking too little is ineffective. Besides, how often in the case of an emergency can you precisely determine the amount of the poison?
Activated charcoal shortens the time it takes an intoxicant to leave the system and decreases the duration and intensity of symptoms. People who take activated charcoal after drinking alcohol or taking recreational drugs such as cocaine or amphetamines should consider it a part of a recovery program to ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. Other nutrients that may help are the neurotransmitter precursors L-Tryptophan, D,L-Phenylalanine, Choline and/or DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol).
Even experts disagree on the best way of using multiple doses of activated charcoal to remove intoxicants. Most protocols are based on experience with drug over-dosages. In actual clinical situations, the activated charcoal regimen is optimized to the patient. The doctor considers the type of toxic substance, severity of intoxification, digestive functions and electrolyte balance. For mild overdoses and intoxification, I suggest up to 80-100 grams divided into 4-6 daily doses of powdered activated charcoal until the symptoms are eliminated. Consult an expert who can optimize your regimen. For a dangerous overdose, call your physician or hospital.
In addition to activated charcoal, the ideal detoxification prescription includes sauna baths, exercise, and a special diet. Nutritional supplements such as essential fatty acids, vitamin C, niacin, proteolytic (protein digesting) enzymes, liver support phyto-nutrients and a comprehensive multiple nutrient formula may also be useful.
Unfortunately, a simple water and charcoal mixture is unpalatable and messy. It tastes like a charcoal briquette, and blackens your teeth, gums and tongue. These problems can be avoided by ingesting a powdered activated charcoal complex that contains a thickening agent like bentonite, with added flavors and mild sweeteners. Bentonite significantly improves the palatability of an activated charcoal and water slurry. Bentonite acts as thickening agent that reduces powdery mouth-feel and improves the taste without reducing the efficacy of activated charcoal. In fact, bentonite is an enterosorption agent. The addition of chocolate further enhances the palatability of bulk activated charcoal in research studies and practical experience.
It's rare but some people may experience a "die-off" effect, also called the Herxheimer Reaction. A die-off effect is caused by a rapid increase in volume of stored waste material (mercury, fomaldehyde, aluminum, cosmetics, etc.) and pathogens. Reactions to the die-off effect can include fatigue, diarrhea, headaches, muscle and joint achiness, and flu-like symptoms. These reactions are temporary and will pass once your body has expelled the circulating toxins. Once your body is free of poisons, you will have achieved an important step in optimizing your health.
Editors Note: Concerning addictions, an additional consideration is to use kudzu and d,l phenylalanine in association with l-glutamine for lessening the desire for alcohol and carbohydrates. Lithium orotate also shows promise in the addictions arena. There seems to be a synergistic relationship with all of these combined compared to any one single nutrient alone. Anti-Alcohol Antioxidants, and Silymarin (Milk Thistle) Extract are additional considerations. N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) shows promise in gambling addictions and addictive behavior support. Activated charcoal/bentonite clay is the preferred choice for detoxification of toxic substances and other poisons that can build-up in our bodies.
