CharcoCaps Homeopathic AntiGas Formula and CharcoCaps Dietary Supplement offers fast, natural relief of
Millions of people struggle each day with abdominal bloating and gas. Though it is a common, natural bodily
function (the average person passes gas more than 14 times per day) caused by many different factors, from the
types of food, beverages or medications we consume, to stress or as a result of more serious conditions, it can be
embarrassing for many, particularly if it arises in a public setting.
And that happens to many of us, according to a recent CharcoCaps survey, which found that nearly three quarters
of adults (72 percent) admit to passing gas in public.
CharcoCaps Homeopathic AntiGas Formula, an over-the-counter product that contains Carbo Vegetabilis (activated
charcoal), as well as additional homeopathic ingredients, is doctor-recommended to help stimulate and support the
body's own defense system against the discomfort of intestinal gas and the embarrassing/uncomfortable symptoms
associated with it while aiding in the fast relief of gas. When CharcoCaps is taken before and after a meal,
intestinal gas is reduced.
CharcoCaps Dietary Supplement, which contains activated charcoal, is a natural internal detoxifier commonly used to
help cleanse the body of unwanted materials, and also adsorbs the toxins in the intestinal tract, which will reduce
gas and odor naturally.
Activated Charcoal, an Age-Old Remedy for Reducing Embarrassing Gas, Now in Easy-to-Swallow Capsules for
Everyday Gas Relief
When people think about activated charcoal, the vision that sometimes comes to mind is the charcoal briquette
used in outdoor barbecues. Not true. Activated charcoal (or activated carbon), which is safe to ingest, is charcoal
that has been heated with steam to approximately 1000° C to create a very porous surface -- so porous that is has
an 'internal surface'. In fact, a teaspoon of activated charcoal has the surface area of an entire football
The use of activated charcoal dates back centuries ago as a natural internal detoxifier and was commonly used to
help cleanse the body of unwanted material and assist with the healing process of the body. It is also widely used
as an emergency antidote to treat certain kinds of poisoning (overdose) in humans by helping to prevent absorption
of poison by the stomach and small intestines.
The activated charcoal in CharcoCaps Dietary Supplement helps reduce intestinal gas by attracting and condensing
the gas molecules into the tiny pores that are created on the surface of the charcoal (which is called adsorbing)
once it is activated. These gases are then carried out of the body on the surface of the charcoal. Activated
charcoal is a powerful adsorbent that's safe and effective, according to clinical studies. CharcoCaps Dietary
Supplement is a natural internal detoxifier commonly used to help cleanse the body of unwanted material and
naturally adsorbs the toxins that cause gas and flatulence.
CharcoCaps Homeopathic AntiGas Formula stimulates and supports the body's own defenses against intestinal
gas. Made from Carbo Vegetabilis (activated charcoal), Lycopodium Clavatum (club moss), Cinchona Officionalis
(cinchona bark) and Sulphur, CharcoCaps offers support to the body's own defenses for fast relief of gas
discomfort, pressure and bloating.
Doctors recommend two capsules with water at mealtime or at first sign of discomfort. CharcoCaps should not be
taken within two hours of ingesting other medications and vitamins/supplements, as these medications can be
adsorbed as well.
Managing Gas Isn't Rocket Science: Gas Tips from the Doctor
Daily flatulence is normal and necessary. In fact, the average person passes gas about 14 times per day
(the human body produces one to three pints daily). However, some experience gas more than others, so here are some
recommendations on how to minimize it.....
Keep a gas diary:
If gas has become more than just an occasional nuisance, try to determine if your gas is related to a
particular food by noting the volume of gas within six hours of your last meal. It takes about a full six hours for
portions of a meal to be released as gas, so if you have a particularly gassy sensation, it might not be that snack
you just ate, but the meal you had earlier in the day. If you find that you are gassy, note all items in your last
several meals to crosscheck against other meal periods where you experience gas.
Non-smelling flatulence results from swallowed air, which is symptomatic of chewing gum, drinking through straws,
sucking on hard candies or nervousness, rather than something you've eaten. Foul-smelling flatulence is related
to the breakdown of actual foods as they go through the intestinal tract. If nutrients are poorly absorbed, they
"feed" bacteria in the gut, which then produces the smelly flatulence.
Deactivate gas fast: Take CharcoCaps Homeopathic Formula products as a natural and safe way to
relieve gas/flatulence. The activated charcoal/carbo vegetabilis in CharcoCaps is commonly used by people suffering
from gas discomfort, pressure and bloating, since it serves to adsorb the gas, reducing both the gas and its
Slow on fiber:
If your physician recommends that you increase your fiber intake, do this slowly. Fiber breaks down in the
intestines and causes gas.
Walk it off: Instead of keeping still after a meal, get moving: take a post-dinner stroll, do some chores around
the house, or walk the dog. Not only is this a nice excuse for a bit of exercise, but it will keep your body moving
and gas flowing.
Consult your doctor:
If excessive or malodorous gas persists, see a doctor. What's making your belly bloat might not be gas, but a
symptom of an underlying condition, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, pancreatic
insufficiency or lactose intolerance. A gastroenterologist can make these determinations and prescribe proper diet
Gas & Travel: “Jet Bloat” a Common Side Effect of Air Travel
Whether you are taking to the skies for business or pleasure, be prepared for a lot of “jet bloat,” the
body’s increased volume of gas that occurs from airline travel – the higher the altitude, the more the gas in our
bodies expands. In fact, a survey for CharcoCaps™ Homeopathic AntiGas Formula found that 16 percent of adults
admit to passing gas during public travel. Excessive gum chewing, candy sucking and air swallowing to equalize the
inner ear air pressure for take-off and landing will lead to non-smelling flatulence, while harried eating at the
airport is another contributor to jet bloat.
If you find yourself experiencing jet bloat and becoming gassier during airline travel, follow these guidelines for
eating and drinking at the airport and while in flight:
When scouring the food court, avoid anything that you’ve shown intolerance for on the ground. If milk intolerance
is your downfall – avoid all dairy. Try to avoid foods that will probably make you gassy, such as fried foods,
beans, bananas, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, or broccoli. If you get gassy, the volume will expand, even in the
pressurized cabin as you reach flight altitudes – so there will be even more volume of gas, which can lead to
discomfort from jet bloat.
If you do eat gassy food, take over-the-counter CharcoCaps Homeopathic AntiGas Formula immediately, so you don’t
inflate like a bag of pretzels as you reach cruising altitude. The Carbo Vegetabilis (activated charcoal) will
stimulate the body’s defense system against the discomfort of intestinal gas. Travelers sitting near you on the
plane will be grateful.
Drink beverages rich in electrolytes, such as tomato or fruit juices, which help with hydration. While water is
also fine, avoid coffee, tea and sodas since they will dehydrate you, and the carbonation in the soda can cause gas
issues. Since alcohol is also a dehydrator, hold off until you are on the ground at the hotel.
