12. Emergency Toxin Removal

Activated charcoal is most widely used as an emergency treatment of poisoning. Overdoses of prescription drugs such as sedatives as well as over-the-counter medicines such as analgesics can be treated with 50-100 grams of activated charcoal mixed with water or sweetened liquid.

The timing of activated charcoal administration is of paramount importance. When administered within five minutes of drug ingestion, the chances of damage are minimized.
The longer the duration of the drug overdose and the administration of activated charcoal, the higher the chances of drug absorption into the systemic circulation.
In certain cases, physicians also employ multiple dosage regimens of activated charcoal for complete eradication of toxins from the gut. However, activated charcoal has limited efficacy as an antidote in cases of heavy metal poisoning.

13. Trimethylaminuria (a genetic condition characterized by the fishy smell of urine, sweat, and breath)

Activated charcoal does not adsorb absolute alcohol, and hence, it is not a treatment of choice in cases of alcohol poisoning. However, as alcohol is usually consumed as a mixture with other liquids, activated charcoal can reduce toxic effects of these liquids, and thereby reduce the severity of alcohol poisoning symptoms. Some physicians also consider it to be useful in preventing a hangover.
Patients can benefit from the use of activated charcoal. The accumulation of odorous trimethylamine can be reduced by adsorption with activated charcoal after systematic multiple dosing regimens. Additionally, activated charcoal also finds its use in the alleviation of gas and bloating after consumption of gas-producing meals.

14. Cholesterol Levels

Scientists also found activated charcoal to be helpful in reducing cholesterol levels across several clinical studies. Bile acids and high-fat content from food were adsorbed on the surface of activated charcoal in the gut. This, in turn, reduced the absorption of fat from the gut. Moreover, low-density lipoprotein (LDL, “bad cholesterol”) level was reduced, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL, “good cholesterol”) level was increased in one study.

15. Water Filtration

The traditional application of activated charcoal as a water cleanser is still relevant today. Fluoride and other heavy metals are effectively removed with the help of activated charcoal filters.
However, it is not useful for removal of viruses and bacteria from water. Therefore, modern water purifiers contain multiple filter components targeted for different impurity types.
Despite numerous proven as well as anecdotal benefits of activated charcoal, every instance of its use should be backed up by the fine medical judgment to avoid any unwarranted complications.
Activated charcoal should not be used without consultation with a toxicologist. Also, aspiration of the substance into the lungs can cause severe complications. . Lastly, activated charcoal should be given within 1 to 2 hours of poisoning.

      Hello anonymous, the Active minerals in charcoal help remove surface stains on your teeth. This is because Charcoal is mildly abrasive and is also able to absorb surface stains to some degree. so if you wet your cloths and place the powder on the stain and let it seat for some minutes before washing off with detergent. The active minerals and abrasive effect will help to remove the surface stains
