In order for Charcoal to be most effective it goes through an activation process. This process increases the many small low-volume pores in each grain of carbon, vastly increasing the surface area available for the adsorption of toxins and chemicals. Steam activation is one of the best ways of activating charcoal. In this process, the carbon (e.g. from coconut husks) is heated in a furnace at very high temperatures in the absence of oxygen. All volatile compounds are removed and at the same t...
Activated Charcoal Powder
For Teeth Whitening, Detox, Poison Neutralisation and more.
From the camp fire to the Emergency Room, activated charcoal powder is one of the most versatile healing remedies known to man. Simple, yet profoundly complex, charcoal is one of nature's wonders. It has stood the test of time and the rigorous scrutiny of modern science. It is one product that could be said to have “a thousand uses”!
Charcoal is used in a wide scope of fields, from simple home use, to medical hospitals, scientific research and even defence.
The secret to charcoal's long record of success lies in is incredible adsorption capabilities. One gram of charcoal has the surface area in excess of 500 m2 to 1500 m2. An scanning electron microscope reveals that each particle of charcoal contains millions of tiny air spaces. These spaces allow it to adsorb many times its own weight of chemicals, toxins and poisons. Below is a particle of charcoal under a scanning electron microscope:

No one knows exactly how it works, but these millions of tiny air spaces have an electrostatic drawing effect on poisons and toxins.
