Slimming with activated carbon - a myth or the truth?
For more than a decade, we have been using the tablet form of activated carbon to combat poisoning or the accumulation of toxins in the body. Indeed, this tool is considered absolutely natural.

In fact, it is impossible to lose ten kilograms with the help of activated carbon. This is confirmed by the practice and research of treating specialists. A maximum of 14 days, you can lose 3-5 kg.
How does absorbent work when ingested? As you know, for the treatment of food poisoning, we take 1 tablet per 10 kg of weight. When ingested, this tool absorbs and absorbs the following components:
- compounds of metal salts and toxins;

With the help of this absorbent it is possible to reduce gas and excessive flatulence. Among the representatives of the beautiful half of humanity there is an opinion that under the influence of activated carbon, subcutaneous fat is actively split in the body. But this is not the case.
