Our Suggestion


Activated Charcoal

  Charcoal ActivatedActivated charcoal has an amazing ability to "attract" and absorb. This makes it ideal for removing poisons from the body.
It is approved by the FDA in place of ipecac for internal poisoning. The poisons adhere to the large surface area of the specially-processed, finely ground powder so that both are eliminated together.
Charcoal will actually absorb intestinal gas, giving relief from bloating and acting to remove the intestinal coating that prevents normal absorption and removal of gas via the blood and lungs.
It is also used internally for hangover, high cholesterol, food poisoning and to remove wastes from under-active kidneys or liver.

A Vital Organ!
Your liver, the largest organ in your body, plays a vital role in regulating life processes. This complex organ performs many functions essential to life. You simply cannot live without it.

The location of the liver
The liver, located behind the lower ribs on the right side of your abdomen (see diagram), weighs about 3 pounds and is roughly the size of a football.

This vital organ performs many complex functions.
Some of these are:
To convert food into chemicals necessary for life and growth;

To process drugs absorbed from the digestive tract into forms that are easier for the body to use; and to detoxify and excrete substances that otherwise would be poisonous.
Your liver plays a key role in converting food into essential chemicals of life. All of the blood that leaves the stomach and intestines must pass through the liver before reaching the rest of the body.

In essence, the liver can be thought of as the body's refinery.
Furthermore, your liver plays a principal role in removing from the blood ingested and internally produced toxic substances. The liver converts them to substances that can be easily eliminated from the body.
It also makes bile, a greenish-brown fluid which is essential for digestion.
Bile is stored in the gallbladder which, after eating, contracts and discharges bile into the intestine, where it aids digestion (of fat in particular).

Your liver helps you by...

• Preventing shortages in body fuel by storing certain vitamins, minerals, and sugars;
• Aiding in the digestive process by producing bile;
• Controlling the production and excretion of cholesterol;
• Neutralizing and destroying poisonous substances;
• Metabolizing alcohol;
• Monitoring and maintaining the proper level of many chemicals and drugs in the blood;
• Cleansing the blood and discharging waste products into the bile;
• Serving as the main organ of blood formation before birth;
• Helping the body resist infection by producing immune factors and by removing bacteria from the bloodstream;
• Regenerating its own damaged tissue; and storing iron
