Activated charcoal could cleanse you of toxins, get rid of bloating, and even relieve a hangover. Activated charcoal is usually made from carbonaceous material, such as wood, that is heated at high temperatures to make charcoal and then oxidized. Activated charcoal has many small holes in the surface, making the surface larger and more porous. Some types of cabbage have an internal surface of 500 to 2000 m2 / g. It is this spongy property that enables activated charcoal to absorb a variety of substances and chemicals, which is why it can be used for filter products, including water filters.
