What are Charcocaps and Charcotabs?

Charcocaps (capsules) and Charcotabs (tablets) are medicines especially developed to adsorb excess gas in the body’s digestive system (stomach and intestines) to help provide relief from bloating, fullness and flatulence.


How do Charcocaps and Charcotabs work?

Charcocaps and Charcotabs contain a medicinal grade of activated carbon and charcoal which helps adsorb excess gas from the body.

About activated charcoal:

Activated charcoal has a long history of medicinal use. It is a natural substance steam treated at high temperatures to maximise its surface area with holes or ‘pores’ which can trap chemicals or gases. Activated charcoal is odourless, tasteless and not adsorbed into the body.
