Braggs Charcoal Tablets - Wind, Indigestion and Heartburn

Braggs tells us that charcoal tablets give 100% relief of indigestion, wind and heartburn and certainly after 150 years, you'd think they've had long enough to gather feed back and evidence. Elixir has only been in existence eleven years but we can add to their testimony that they're certainly one of the most popular supplements in our store, and over the internet.

I tend to think that charcoal is more popular among the older age groups because their digestive systems are weaker and in need of more support, but also it's a fact that age group know it as one of the few products from around the war that they could easily find.

The good thing about charcoal tablets is that they are safe, although those using conventional drugs should let their doctors know because the charcoal can lessen the effect of medication, they absorb quite a bit in the digestive system. They are also easy to take, after a meal, and easy to carry around. So they're highly convenient with all age groups especially when you find yourself in a restaurant or socialising with family and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q What are the benefits of using Charcoal Tablets?
A One of the benefits of taking Medicinal Charcoal as opposed to other products on the market is that because it is not a drug, it has no direct action on any organ of the body, it does not enter the blood stream nor is the charcoal itself adsorbed into your body. All of it passes out of your system along with the toxins and gases it has collected on its journey. If you are already on medication it would be wise to consult your doctor or pharmacist as the Medicinal Charcoal may adsorb other medicines and lessen their effect.

Q Are Charcoal Tablets suitable for vegetarians?
A Yes. All the ingredients are from vegetable sources. Activated Charcoal is from coconut.

Q What is the best way to take the tablets?
A Charcoal Tablets are most effective if taken shortly after a meal or when the problem arises. They can be swallowed, chewed, taken with liquid or other food; the important thing is that the charcoal reaches the stomach where it can absorb the toxins and gases that have built up within the digestion system and in the course of time pass them naturally and easily out of the system.

Q My stools have turned black, is this normal?
A Yes, there is nothing to worry about, it is a sure sign that the charcoal has passed through your digestive system.

Q May I take them with other medicines or Paracetamol?
A The charcoal may adsorb or lessen the effect of the medicine. We suggest that you consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are on medication.

Q May I take them while pregnant or nursing a baby?
A Yes, they may be taken during pregnancy and breast feeding.

Q Why do Charcoal Tablet drums often contain a residue of black "dust"?
A To do their job effectively, the Charcoal Tablets cannot be coated as most tablets are, therefore as the tablets rub against each other in the drum, a little surface dust is rubbed off. These tablets have to be able to dissolve in the stomach within 15 minutes, and so are rather soft by nature.
