How to Use Kohlbitr Charcoal
Start by making this super-detoxifier part of your regular diet and lifestyle. Begin with one capsule a day with water (either first thing in the morning or last thing at night). Increase the dosage as necessary. Kohlbitr is always useful for acute food poisoning or an upset stomach, yet its primary role is to assist your body in filtering out toxins—something we could all use more of in our toxic world. Please keep some Kohlbitr capsules with you at all times.
Kohlbitr (pronounced "coal biter") is a 100% plant-based activated charcoal supplement in tapioca capsules. Each capsule contains approximately 350 mg of Kohlbitr charcoal.*
While many activated charcoal products come in powder form, Kohlbitr comes in vegetarian capsules. This allows for easy, convenient and clean ingestion without the powdery mess of making your own activated charcoal drink. Capsules also keep the product fresher longer and are safe and easy for transport and traveling.

Coconut charcoal is charcoal made from coconut shell. This is the preferred charcoal source material worldwide as it makes an excellent detoxification product for humans and animals.
In addition to being better for you, coconut charcoal is a 100% sustainable product that we can feel good about using.
Contrary to popular belief, the idea that activated charcoal interferes or neutralizes healthy nutrients, minerals, vitamins, fat/oils, carbohydrates and/or protein has never been proven in research. Activated charcoal is able to selectively neutralize toxins without interfering with healthy digestion and metabolism via two scientific principles discovered so far: van der waal's forces and pi stacking.
Activated charcoal adsorbs toxins, metabolic waste products and artificial chemicals that can damage the body. Activated charcoal has been found to be safe for all ages. Start slow as activated charcoal is a binder and excessive use (initially) may lead to constipation.
Hospitals recommend that activated charcoal should be taken at least 2 hours apart from medication, as activated charcoal can neutralize medication when taken together. One may want to take activated charcoal on the opposite side of the day as medication.
Activated charcoal is often used to treat acute poisonings. With daily use, research suggests activated charcoal may promote kidney health, reduce flatulence, calm diarrhea and boost skin health. (1)
Researchers are actively exploring other potential benefits of activated charcoal as well, including treatment of indigestion, heavy bile flow during pregnancy and neutralizing the toxic effects of some anti-seizure medications. (2)
Dr. V. V. Frolkis, a famous Russian Gerontologist, and his colleagues discovered that activated charcoal is a potent life-extending agent. (3) Activated charcoal has been found to increase the mean lifespan of older test animals by 43% and their maximum lifespan by approximately 34%.

Abstract: Experiments were performed on Wistar male rats, starting from the 28th month of age. The effect of dietary sorbent (non coated nitrogen-containing carbon administered as 10 day courses at 1 month intervals in dosage of 10 ml/kg) on lifespan and a number of biological indices were studied. Enterosorption resulted in the increase of mean and maximal lifespan by 43 and 34% respectively. Analysis of the effect of enterosorption on activity of microsomal enzymes, intensity of total RNA and protein biosynthesis, lipid metabolism, formation of free radicals etc. showed that it produced a positive influence on the functional state of the studied systems and increased the organism's adaptive capacities. Enterosorption was found to delay the rate of onset of age-related structural changes in the organs and tissues.
*Average encapsulated charcoal material is 350mg. Some batches are slightly more, and some less as each batch is manually achieved without flow agents such as magnesium stearate, citric acid, PEG, etc. Any encapsulated activated charcoal product—where the outside of the capsule itself is not covered with a thin layer of charcoal material—is using flow agents.
