Is there a more successful snake oil out there than emergen-c? $10 for thirty packets of vitamin c and sugar. That has to be killer profit margin.
Shit. I can get 500 five-hundred milligram vitamin C pills and five kilos of sugar for that at the Great Satan Store Walmart.

I noticed that at Rite-Aid they were selling a bottle of activated charcoal pills for something like $20. I pointed out to my wife that I could take her to the fish section at the local pet store and get that much activated charcoal for $5 or less.

I suspect the pet store doesn’t have food grade activated charcoal. Of course you can get a tub of it on amazon for dirt cheap.

For something like activated charcoal, I'd take my chances on aquarium grade.

No one in 'merica has "food grade" activated carbon/charcoal. It is not an approved food additive.

What you'll find is pharma-grade activated charcoal for use in/as dietary supplements.

Different regulatory schemes.
