Charcoal has been used as a treatment for digestive disorders and an antidote to poisons for centuries. It provides natural relief for indigestion, wind and heartburn and alleviates the symptoms of stomach discomfort which is often accompanied by bloating, belching and nausea. A huge Wellness benefit of activated charcoal is that while absorbs chemicals, gas and toxins in the stomach and intestines, it does not absorb any nutrients, minerals or vitamins from food sources as these substances are either too large or do not bond with activated charcoal. Thereby the body holds on and absorbs the properties it needs from food, but will still absorb some ‘baddies’ - often sources of stomach problems, bad odors and digestive distress.
The supplier of our activated charcoal is a British manufacturer who produces their product from coconuts. We have worked hard on sourcing the most local and most wholesome source of activated charcoal we could find and feel confident in it’s ability to help the stomach to feel better, which is why we have included it in our Digest Best biscuit.
Please NOTE if your dog is on medication. Due to the Activated Charcoal content contained in Digest Best, do NOT feed these biscuits within two hours of your dog ingesting medication. Activated charcoal will absorb toxins and medicine in the stomach and may render the medication ineffective if eaten in close proximity to the time it is given.
Activated charcoal may also change the color of your dog's stools. This is due to the color of the charcoal and is nothing to become alarmed about.
