What does activated charcoal do?
Activated charcoal contributes to reducing excessive flatulence after eating if the recommended dosage is taken.
How does it work?
Steam Activated Charcoal is a form of charcoal that’s been heated and ground into a fine powder. It is insoluble in the digestive system, and due to its powder composition, it has a large surface area. Excess gas in the digestive system has a high affinity to the Activate Charcoal and binds to it, before being naturally excreted. This reduces the amount of free gas in the digestive system and ultimately the amount of flatulence.
Why take Activated Charcoal?
Flatulence happens to the best of us. But sometimes it can seem excessive and uncomfortable, and the timing can also be a bit awkward. Taking WindAway® can help! Each serving provides 1000mg of Activated Charcoal, the amount required to relieve flatulence after eating.
