When my daughter had her first reaction to a spider bite we soon learned that black charcoal was the cure. Her foot turned red, and she developed a nasty headache. I broke one capsule into a small bowl, added water, and applied the poultice to the wound, covering it with a bandaid. For her headache I gave her one tablet to swallow. Within 30 minutes her headache was better, and the next day her bite was looking much better.
I was iffy on taking charcoal. The first time a friend recommended this product I was like TAKE WHAT?! But... my spouse and I were both home sick from work from either a small bug or something we ate so my friend came over and brought us each a handful of these pills. By that evening we were both hungry for dinner and actually ate turkey burgers with sweet potato fries. So if that isn't enough proof, I don't know what is!!!!!
Awesome product that everybody in my family loves and hates running out of. The fear is "What if it's out of stock!" It's one of the first things we go to for any stomach issues. A bottle goes everywhere with us. I'm even starting to try it on my teeth occasionally for whitening. A little messy though. anyway, we love it and will be buying more in the future! The charcoal book is awesome and a great help also!
Our family's favorite (and first) go-to solution for tummy aches, bloating, and "not sure if what I just ate was ok" situations! A couple capsules taken before bedtime helps calm tummies enough to fall asleep.
I will not be without these ever! I have a bottle in my purse, just in case, one in the kitchen and one in our first aid kit. I think I will add one to my car as well in case I am not the one driving. Our whole family has used them many times when we have upset stomachs for various reasons.
I bought a bottle of charcoal about a month ago and the bottle is almost gone. My coworker and I both bought some around the same time and she has rave reviews as well. The first time I took it, the rest of my family had a particularly contagious case of the stomach flu, I was paranoid of getting it b/c I couldnt miss work. I started feeling a little nauseous so I took 4-5, I kept getting waves of nausea every 15 minutes throughout the day, I kept taking it every few hours, and finally I also took one Ultimate defense probiotic, and then the nausea was gone, I escaped without having any diareah even! it has saved me from tummy troubles, and gas, I don't think I ever want to be without it again, I even keep a little baggie of charcoal and ultimate defense probiotic in my desk drawer at work in case something I eat for lunch doesnt agree with me.
I recommend this to all my friends......so many uses! Just this past week we were exposed to flu bug of some kind, so I had my family take a precautionary dose and we are doing good. Wished I would have known this a long time ago!! Thanks Beeyoutiful for great products and teaching us healthy ways!
I'm a RN but i believe in natural remedies. Going to the doctor or to the ER is my last resort, if i can't fix what is bothering my family. This charcoal has saved me and my family a lot of trouble -food intolerance, stomach aches, indigestion, bloating, or when my kids come home not feeling well thinking they got some virus from school. I even gave my friend this capsule when she was indigested and she said the effect was immediate. I gave this to my daughter who went to college and told her when to use it. It's one of her first aid remedies, too!
The miracle pill! My husband sometimes wakes up sick in the middle of the night after eating something that doesn't agree with him (chili, spaghetti sauce, etc.) and after finding this amazing product, he rarely gets sick anymore. If he eats something he knows will come back to haunt him later, he just pops a pill or two before bed and it takes away all discomfort. I can't believe I'm just finding out about these babies, but I'm SO glad I did! Definitely something everyone should have in their medicine cabinet!
I first tried activated charcoal when my son had food poisoning a few years ago..he was surprised at how fast it worked..I have never been without it since...my family takes it at the first sign of stomach upset...I recommend it to everyone I know.....
I used this for me when I had a really really bad stomach bug. To be honest it didn't make the stomach bug completely go right away. But I did think that it helped. The next time i get the stomach bug which i hope is a long time away I will use more. I think the reason why i didn't get fast results is because i didn't take enough, It was hard to want to take anything when you feel like that.
Living in Belize, I have pretty frequent tangles with large scorpions. My reaction to each sting was getting worse... until I started using charcoal. These capsules make it handy to always have charcoal with me. I down 10 caps when I am stung, and usually open one, mix with a little water to form a paste, and apply to the site. No pain, and no numbness. Fantastic! The capsules are so much more convenient than the loose powder I used to use: oh the messes I made!!
I am gluten sensitive, and I take a capsule of activated charcoal whenever I eat out to head off any cross-contamination. The charcoal greatly reduces or eliminates negative reactions for me. I usually take a capsule before a meal out and sometimes after if I am suspicious of cross-contamination. I don't want to be without this!
We are so happy to have found these! We first tried the activated charcoal in the powder form and found it fabulous on stomach flu and more, but sometimes it was hard to get down because it is gritty in water. That is why we like this capsule form. Easy to swallow, no gritty taste. Take when you first have a slight symptom of sickness and it will be gone quickly. We have a large family and when one person gets ill, the rest of us use these as a preventive measure of cleaning out the gut of any bad bugs.
My husband and son are farmers and occasionally have to deal with harmful chemicals, both organic and conventional. After they work with any chemicals they take a capsule or two for the next day to try to 'catch' any chemical that may have infiltrated their system.
Activated charcoal is AMAZING stuff and these capsuls are a clean, easy way to get it down!
We still use our powder form for poultices and such. Love it too!
Last year I found myself in tears when I had my eighth (!!!) stomach flu of the year. I had noticed the Beeyoutiful catalog in the bag from our state homeschool MTHEA curriculum fair. I emailed the nice people at Beeyoutiful and asked for their advice. We have 4 kids and my husband always ends up needing IV fluids when he gets stomach bugs. They directed me to the activated charcoal. We have been using it at the first twinge of stomach trouble and have not had one full blown stomach bug in the 6 months since!!! It is like a miracle! I never want to be without these capsules :)
Our family took a trip to Mexico on a mission trip. We don't vaccinate anymore, so I wanted to take some preventative products in case anyone got sick. Our family was taking many products to stay healthy, so thankfully only one of our sons started feeling yucky one morning. We gave him some of this and he felt better within a couple of hours and was then running around and ready to go! We did even share some with others in our mission team as a tummy bug went around to most of the other people on our team.
This has been a huge answer to prayer! When the kids start feeling sick to their stomachs, this product knocks it out! We used to have two-week throw up sessions, but haven't had one since we started using charcoal. When we are around anyone that has had a stomach virus, we all take a few rounds to ward it off. Such a blessing!
I love this product. We always have this on hand for stomach upset. I was nervous to try it at first because of the name but it works so well and super fast. We take it the minute we have a sick stomach and it goes away so fast! Thanks
I bought this product because I had read that activated charcoal can help with the candida detox overload symptoms. And it really has. Now I don't have to be so concerned about going too fast in my fight to rid my body of the candida. I am careful to take it at least 2 hours after and 1 hour before I take my other nutritional supplements.
We are using charcoal and flaxseed for a seriously inflamed overgrown toenail and it is healing it quite nicely. Daily poultices a couple times a day has resulted in also complete healing. I love using charcoal in so many ways.
This is a great product. We take it at any hint of stomach upset and it seems to quell the issue every time. I keep a few in my purse just in case, and sent the whole bottle with my husband on his guys' trip to Vegas :) His friends were grateful.
My youngest woke up with the symptoms of a stomach virus this morning. God reminded me that I had some Activated Charcoal in my cupboard from 3 years ago. She was so nauseous, but was able to sallow a capsule with some water. 1 1/2 laters, she was her complete bouncy self! Activated Charcoal to the rescue! Thank you!!
This isn't just for stomach issues. Buy the book! I have used it for so many things from bad gas to deadly spider bites. It's a necessary first aid kit product. The baby books recommended it but I never understood why. Wish I had researched it a long time before when I first became a mom. Better late than never.
I had heard of using charcoal for stomach flus but never knew where to find it. I was interested to see it on your website. I bought a bottle and the book you recommend. My family is hooked! There are 9 of us in our family and the package arrived just in time. We had just been exposed to stomach flu at a home we visited. I came down with it and immediately took the capsules. I only had nausea. No vomitting or diarrhea. My son experienced the same thing. However, my 2 daughters age 4 and 7 had vomitted and experienced some diarrhea but it was nothing like it could have been. I made a slurry water as suggested in the book and it was easier for them to take. My 1 yr. old had it too and it helped her as well. The others took it prophylactically and have not come down with it and my husband who was with the little ones while they were sick has not had it either. He has told everyone we know about this remarkable find! Thank you, Beeyoutiful!
There is such a wide variety of uses for charcoal, one should not be without it on hand. I have had success using it after becoming sick after coming into contact with a pesticide on my herbs. I have emptied the capsules and used a paste of the charcoal and oil to alleviate swelling and pain of wasp stings. I have also used it with my toothpaste to heal an absess. I even believe it to help in the treatment of stomach flu/illnesses and shortening the duration of other flus and sicknesses. I keep it on hand always!
I was skeptical about the use of charcoal. Wow! It worked so well on my upset stomach, acid indigestion. I have FINALLY found a product to replace Alka Seltzer! Beeyoutiful products are just so refreshing, finally a natural company I can trust
I have been reading the activated charcoal book that the site carries and am so excited to have all this great information and ways to use the activated charcoal. Thank you for carrying such wonderful products.
Every since I read an article about activated charcoal in Beeyoutiful's catalogue, I've kept it on hand. On more than one occasion it has nipped the flu or food poisoning in the bud when symptoms first appeared. Though for my children, I break the capsule open and pour the charcoal into their mouth to swallow with water as the capsules seem to take too long to break down for them.
one of my boys is allergic to wheat and dairy products. If he ate any foods which has those things,Skin around his eyes get irritated badly and it made him looked he always has stuff in his eyes like he never cleaned his face after he got out of his bed. I carry activated Charcoal in my vehicle and my diaper bag, cause my family know it catches these irritating guys right away. when the stuff around his eyes show up , He takes this catcher capsules and it cleares his skin within 2 days.
It also worked when my baby had a hives all over his body. it acts rapidly and you can take as much up to16 capsules in 24 hours.
Must have in all household whether you like natural stuff or not!
I seriously love this stuff!! Multiple Stomach bugs have come and gone with little or no affect on my family! As soon as anyone complains of belly issues all of us take some (the little's get it in some yogurt)! I've had a stomach bug make it through the whole family only once since we started using this. I take it on vacations. If recommended it multiple times (though some still think I'm crazy...). I try to always keep some on hand!
This is one of those products you should always keep around so that you have it to immediately use it in the case of stomach trouble. My husband got food poisoning from a local restaurant and the people he ate with were uncomfortable and down and out for a couple of days. We treated him with the activated charcoal as soon as we noticed the symptoms and he was back at work the next day feeling fine.
Is this something you can take daily as a precaution? We take tummy tune up as a daily precaution also. Thank you!
Question by: Laurie on Jul 21, 2014 4:15:40 PM
No, this is a supplement you can take as needed, for example when you have been exposed to a stomach virus or having any complaints of one. Long term or on-going use can cause mineral depletion, so you would want to supplement the mineral intake if you are taking consistently.

Can little ones take the activated charcoal caps? I have a 4 y/o and a 4 month old?
Also, when using Tummy Tuneup and Activated Charcoal during a bout of the stomach flu, how much and how often should one take each of them?
Question by: Judith on Sep 8, 2013 8:36:25 PM
Yes, Activated Charcoal Capsules can be used with both ages. For those ages in my little ones, I will open the capsule and put in a small amount of water. My four year old will drink it up through a straw and the infants I give a baby bottle. I usually give them half a capsule as needed every two hours. Beware that charcoal will stain. So I usually put them on an old comforter that we have if they are sick and in old clothes that I don't mind being stained if they were to throw up.
During a stomach flu, we use both Tummy Tuneup and Activated Charcoal. I will tell you since we have begun using Tummy Tuneup daily with our family a little over five years ago, we have only had one real course of the stomach flu. Other than that we have just had a few random throw ups but no stomach virus. But this is how we did treat it and would treat it. We do 1/2 capsule of Tummy Tuneup every hour and 1/2 capsule of Activated Charcoal every two hours or as needed. You cannot overdose on either. I do this until it appears they are not throwing up anymore. Then I let them sip on small sips of bone broth or coconut water to ensure they are getting adequate minerals back into their system. Or with a breastfed baby, I nurse them during the entire time.

My 7 yr. old and I have a tummy bug. (Ache, diarrhea) I took 4 capsules this morning. How much should I take today, and how many should she take? She weighs maybe 60lbs?
Question by: Lindsay on Sep 11, 2012 9:08:55 AM
Oh no~! We have had the stomach bug hit our house recently as well. Fortunately between Tummy Tuneup and Charcoal capsules, we kept it to a minimum.
With charcoal you really cannot overdose, so taking according to how much your body needs it to relieve symptoms is fine. I usually take it once every 15-30 minutes during active vomiting and then back down to once every couple hours after that.
The important thing to remember about charcoal is it can leach out minerals and other nutrients, but especially minerals. So sipping on coconut water, mineralized water or bone broth is important!
And for your daughter, I would suggest as needed for her as well, just remineralize her when she takes them!
