KIKI Health Activated Charcoal is a finely reduced powder (5-10 microns), which presents a huge surface area for the absorption of unwanted substances. So when taken orally or used on teeth or skin it works as a sponge to soak up contaminants. The beneficial effect is obtained with 1 g which should be taken at least 30 minutes before and 1 g shortly after the meal. KIKI‘s Activated Charcoal is produced from sustainable coconuts which has been highly purified with steam to remove any contaminants for use as a pharmaceutical active ingredient. It is a pharmaceutical grade charcoal (Codex) which defines the quality and specification of the activated charcoal.
