What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal – also known as activated carbon – is a highly adsorbent powdered or granular carbon, usually made by carbonization and chemical activation and is chiefly used for purifying by adsorption. **
When organic carbon-based matter is activated – usually through high heat – it develops a high degree of microporosity which enables toxins and chemicals to bind more easily to it. Activated charcoal is used to adsorb toxins in many applications to purify, detoxify, and deodorize.
