Granular Activated Charcoal To Solve Persorption


Apr 12, 2014
Ray Peat
I’m not confident of the purity and proper particle size of the charcoal products that are available, so I think bamboo shoot and carrots, along with cascara sagrada as needed, are the safest way to keep endotoxin and estrogen under control.

Does anyone have experience with using any granulated activated charcoal? Perhaps this would solve the persorption through the intestines issue.

Since many users are already using charcoalhouse brand made from coconut shell, this may solve the purity issue, at least compared to what was available whenever Peat made this statement. ... ted_carbon

The 20 x 50 mesh looks like it might be a good balance between large surface area and not too small particle size.

I assume no one has tried this since a search turned up nada. It's getting ordered.

I have to get rid of my powdered charcoal and get granulated. It seems the powdered is not recommended and can cause potential problems.
