Charcoal supplements for body odor, part II of III

Please note : This example is used to show how effective charcoal can be in the gut, as it is still used by Emergency Rooms today for acute poisoning cases. Under constant supervision of the medical staff, it is used to adsorb (and make unabsorbable) the poisons left in their gut. It is not recommended that a similar treatment be used without medical supervision.

Activated charcoal itself is a fine, black powder that is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic. It is used in very high doses in hospital Emergency Rooms with most drug overdose cases, and is often given after gastric lavage—the technique often called the stomach pump. Gastric lavage is only effective immediately after swallowing a toxic substance (within about one-half hour) and does not reach beyond the stomach as activated charcoal does. It works by adsorbing (soaking up) chemicals, thus reducing their toxicity (poisonous nature), through the entire length of the GI tract (stomach and small and large intestines), and is estimated to reduce up to 60% of poisonous substances being adsorbed. This article says that activated charcoal is a very safe decontaminant in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (stomach and intestines). It is considered to be the most effective agent available, and is used after a person swallows or adsorbs almost any toxic drug or chemical. [1]

The National Institute of Health, Office of Rare Diseases, in their recommendations for the treatment of trimethylaminuria, prescribe activated charcoal taken at a dose of 750mg twice daily for ten days, with a note stating, "Individuals should follow the treatment advice of their health care provider and should not attempt to self-administer these treatment approaches. Medications and supplements can have unintended interactions, and dietary restrictions can result in nutritional deficits." [2]
