I like using this on a daily basis, between meals and supplementation, to help "sweep" the gi tract of any toxins. I believe it to be working well.

Swanson's Activated Charcoal
I don't take these on a daily basis, I just like to have it on hand. I only use this if I want to do a 'cleanse' or incase of an emergency where you want to do a detox. This is also great to take along when you go camping, to help purify drinking water. If you're a 'prepper', then you should be stocking some of this.

I purchased this product to use as a mouthwash to help whiten my teeth and also remove toxins. The capsules are easy to open and the results have been positive.

As a vegetarian, I eat a LOT of fiber, so it's important to have charcoal capsules on hand. I've found the Swanson brand to be as effective as other brands, and the price is lower. Highly recommend!

Great price and value.
I have purchased other brands of charcoal, however, this is the best. I use it 2 times a day. Very effective.

When I need it it works every time!

This is as good as any other charcoal supplement, for a lot less money. Why pay more?

I have been using the charcoal with water (making a paste) to brush my teeth. Teeth look whiter and breath is fresher.

These activated charcoal capsules have been a godsend for me. First they were hard to find locally and the price is better at Swanson. The really great thing is that I hardly have to see my doctor any more since he told me about charcoal caps. Really pleased.

This product works well enough

I would tell everyone I know to buy this product!
It works great for anything in my family!
Plus you can't beat that price! And how many caps! You get!

a must-have in the household
This is great for anything that feels not all-right with the digestive system. Everyone in my house takes these occasionally as needed, so I make sure not to run out.

Really helps for those high fiber diets. Or if you over indulge in the wrong kind of foods. Much better than running out of the room every 5 minutes! :^D

Doesn't work as well as others but I take 3 instead of 2 caps and that solves the problem.

Best Value in Activated Charcoal
I have been using their own brand of this product for many years. it has several uses and this product works well for all of them. The price is also excellent compared to other websites. Highly recommend.

My wife HAS to have this on hand at all times. It's great for her PH level and it keeps her bowels feeling up to par.

Just one capsule a day was too much. It is very constipating. I had to return the unopened bottles.

Always the best price for a quality product. Have trusted this brand for a long time.

We have used Charcoal for many years and Swansons brand is one of the best.

doesn't bother my stomach like some brands
too soon to tell if it's working, but the value and comfort (no stomach upset) are there.

NOW LESS EFFECTIVE
This product was very messy to handle prior to being coated. Then Swanson took it off the market for about 4-6 months to reformulate and coat. Now that it’s been coated its effectiveness unfortunately has been greatly diminished, now it requires additional dosing to realize the same previous result of less capsules. Our suggestion is for Swanson to offer two different varieties, one coated and one uncoated. We’d gladly deal with the minor inconvenience of a non-coated capsule to ensure an effective result with fewer capsules.

A Messy Product
The effectiveness of this product is excellent. However, my complaint is that the charcoal comes off the capsules and gets all over your hands and whatever else it touches. I had to dispose of most of the capsules into the trash and use another brand of charcoal.

This is a great product I found while changing to a high fiber diet.

recommend with a caveat
This product works well but the label should warn users to take it with a large glass of water or don't take it @ all. I learned that the hard way.
