I've been using Beano and Simethecone for gas, but I was wondering if anyone has tried activated charcoal ?

I used it for a while, but didn't benefit from it. It didn't give me any negative effects, only made my stools tar-ish looking. If you do take them, you need to take them seperatley from vitamins because if consumed too close together, the charcoal will absorb the vitamins.

You said it made your stools tarish. Is that the same as hard ? I already have to watch everything I eat to avoid C. I was wondering if they might absorb the toxins in my digestive tract as well as get rid of the gas. Do u know if it comes in liquid form ? I have trouble with capsules.

Have you tried to figure out what foods are causing your gas, other than the obvious gluten? Dairy, cruciferous veggies (broccoli, etc), beans? Avoiding the foods that cause you gas is a better way to go than popping gas relieving pills IMHO, also be absolutely certain that these anti-gas remedies don't contain gluten, many do!

Charcoal does work for gas and stomach issues, but it also absorbs your good nutrients and isn't good to take all the time. It will also slow down things and make you C! So I wouldn't recommend taking it on a regular basis, but it is supposed to be great for food poisoning, etc.

Thanks. I'm stuck with the gas for now, because my diet is limited to vegan at this point. I need the beans for protein. The part about losing nutrients is a concern. Does anyone know how long should I wait after eating before taking it ? Marcia

I have been battling some serious bloating and stomach inflamation the past few weeks and nothing has been able to help. Went to the Vitamin shop monday and bought me some Activated Charcoal, some Ginger, and some Golden Seal root tablets. Ive been an a minimal dosage of all three the past few days and I have felt significantly better. The abdominal pain that I had is almost all gone....the Big C that I have been dealing with is also getting better. Crazy thing is that I went to bed last night with a headache, 10 minutes after my head hit the pillow I felt a sensation that I have not felt in months. NO HEADACHE!!!!

Not sure what one thing to credit with it or if it was a combo of the stuff I began taking. Im sure the Ginger had something to do with the headaches. My stools have been dark but not in a tarry kind of way. I did notice my heart racing a bit last night but I think it was more of the anxious feeling I got when the pain in my head went away. I havent been pain free in so long...

Im taking the Charcoal about 30 minutes after I eat breakfast and dinner. None for lunch.

Edit: Sorry Mods....didnt realize this thread was this old.
