Health Benefits

Charcoal can be produced from a wide variety of materials; Bamboo, Wood, Moss, Bone and Coconut.

Some of the most common forms of charcoal are used as fuels or absorbents used in purification processes, many of these grades of charcoal would be harmful if ingested.

Charcoal used for medical applications is highly refined and purified to remove the harmful substances found in other grades, the charcoal is also activated.

Activated charcoal is produced by; heating charcoal to high temperatures (800 - 1000 degrees centigrade) this process alters the structure of the charcoal producing a lattice / honeycomb structure, which has a huge surface area, 1g of activated charcoal may have an area of over 1000 square meters.

JL Bragg, only uses activated charcoal produced from Coconuts, the structure of activated charcoal produced from Coconuts is unique and works in harmony with our bodies, other forms of charcoal do not have the same health benefits.

Activated charcoal does not absorb any nutrients, minerals or vitamins as these substances are either too large or do not bond with activated charcoal.
