High, food-quality (FOOD GRADE) activated carbon obtained from coconut shells, characterized by a large absorption surface
shows adsorbing properties
counteracts the excessive accumulation of intestinal gases
improves digestive comfort
Activated carbon is an elemental form of carbon, characterized by a very high porosity. Due to the existence of an extensive network of pores, such carbon has a very large specific surface (even over 3000 m2 / g). This activation of the carbon is accomplished by exposing the carbon to high temperature with limited air access.
Thanks to such an extensive surface, activated carbon has excellent adsorption properties (adsorbent) and is able to bind on the surface and neutralize many substances. In addition, as an adsorbent, it is also used in cosmetics (skin cleansing masks), in hygiene products (whitening toothpastes) or in many other areas, as a filtering agent (e.g. in aquariums).
The origin of activated carbon
Many products on the market are based on low-quality, technical activated carbon, obtained from charcoal or fossil coal, which are not intended for consumption purposes, but for industrial or technical applications. Due to the low purity class of the coal used, they may contain substances harmful to health. The safest source of pure activated carbon for consumption is coconut shells.
Aliness activated carbon is obtained from coconut shells and intended as an ingredient in dietary supplements. It comes from a leading European supplier and is manufactured in one of its production plants located in Sri Lanka, Thailand and Indonesia. It can also be used to whiten teeth.
