How It Works

There are times when you have a stomach ache and you absolutely know it is caused by gas bubbles floating around your intestines. When this happens to me, I take 2 charcoal pills. The charcoal pulls the"air" out of the intestines. Be aware that it also does pull out some nutrients with it, so don't take them right after supplements. Take them only when the discomfort from the stomach ache outweigh losing some nutrients.

Every time I have pain in my stomach charcoal works! Sometimes I cannot get up and I have to lay on my stomach till the pain subsides, but if I take a pill it goes away pretty quickly. I really recommend carrying with you for travel in case of unwanted bloating or gas pains.
