Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Detox !! My wife claims to feel better, less heavy, less drained, content with results. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Peace of mind for the medicine cabinet Activated Charcoal! Such a peace of mind to have in the medicine cabinet, and at a reasonable price. September 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gas free I have been taking this supplement for about 2 weeks now. I have less gas expulsion and I'm happy about it. July 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for my husband Wow! My husband seems to encounter bad gas problem on days when we eat out. We are one happy family, except on those lovely nights. One day I decided to add the Swanson activated charcoal to my order. A few weeks later needs arised and I subtly offered two capsules as a test. He took these twice in two days and everyone including the dog and cat uttered a sigh of relief. We can finally eat out, and enjoy a relaxing movie afterwards, at home or out in public. The only thing I don't get is... why I waited 20 years to try this. If you or your love one ever experience similar issues, give this a try. You can thank me later. May 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Activated Charcoal Does Wonders I take this when I eat questionable foods and it helps them pass without the detrimental effects that I would normally experience. Since it helps to block the absorption of foods/substances, you should not take this with any medication because it will block their absorption. April 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it should Activated charcoal is reputed to help a sour stomach. This product can have near immediate results. February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Every medicine cabinet and first aid kit should contain a bottle of this. Toss one in each vehicle, your camping gear and backpack for hikes, etc etc. I encourage you to google it since I cannot go into details about the benefits due to government restrictions for dietary supplements. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable product I like the way this product works! December 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by really works I have taken this product on several occasions where I may have overindulged a bit on a dinner that was not the most healthy. These capsules worked very quickly and took away that icky feeling. December 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by works This activated charcoal is a great price and works well if you take two. November 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This stuff is awesome! I am so glad we found this product! We are using it to make a charcoal mask along with the aloe vera gel we also purchased through Swanson for our teenage son. It has helped improve his skin so much! So easy, cheap and arrives quickly. November 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Charcoal Forever Love this product.... I have a sensitive stomach and activated charcoal works wonders October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Multi-purpose Great product for a great price! I use this before/after eating bothersome foods that can cause gas. It also helps with GI 'die-off' symptoms when you change your diet or eat garlic. I always have some on hand for hubby and myself. October 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson's Activated Charcoal This is an excellent product to have on hand for those times you need relief right away. This works for me. October 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by don't be without it Activated charcoal is a standard item to have on hand in our household. Many stomach problems can be alleviated by taking and it such a simple solution! Keep some on hand! September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price This is a great product for a great price. The capsules are easily opened just in case you want to make your own face mask, toothpaste, or etc. I will be buying this again when I get low August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It Works 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. April 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by my wife is using it often my adult family is using this product ocationally, and we allways need to keep it in stock. February 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Purchase 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. January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Charcoal capsules 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! December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good When I need it it works every time! November 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Totally Satisfied This is as good as any other charcoal supplement, for a lot less money. Why pay more? November 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brighter Teeth I have been using the charcoal with water (making a paste) to brush my teeth. Teeth look whiter and breath is fresher. August 29, 2013
