Non-activated & Natural Charcoal Supplement

What is it?

Britain’s Best Charcoal supplement can be fed to all animals. It is a natural and traditional feed supplement for supporting digestive health. Our charcoal is non-activated for a more natural and gentle effect. It is 100% pure with nothing else added. Our charcoal is in the form of low-dust granules which can be mixed with feed.

What is it for?

Charcoal supplements are traditionally fed to support a healthy digestive system.

For Horses – Charcoal is used to support a healthy gut, particularly during periods of stress, a change of diet or when their history dictates. Loose droppings, crib biting, weight loss and tummy discomfort or all indicators of an unsettled gut.

For Working Dogs – charcoal is a popular supplement to help reduce body odour and flatulence. It has the effect of mopping up toxins in the gut and can make your dog a lot more pleasant to live with!

For Chickens –  Charcoal helps to mop up toxins, including ammonia, so it supports the health of your birds plus improves the environment within their coop. Due to it’s very porous nature, hens that eat charcoal will also produce better quality fertilizer for your garden!

How is it made?

Britain’s Best Charcoal is very unique, and a true artisan feed for animals. It is made from sustainably sourced British hardwoods where forestry management is key. Most other charcoal feeds are made from coconut shells which have to be imported, adding food miles as well as pollution from mass-production methods.

Britain’s Best Charcoal is not activated, so it has a more natural and gentle effect on the digestive system, and may be fed on a longer term basis (months rather than weeks)

**Our Exmoor producer is no longer making charcoal, hence the change in product name. Our charcoal is now made in the South of England, and like all our ‘Britain’s Best’ range we believe our British charcoal is one of the best you can buy.


Britain’s Best Charcoal is available in a bio-degradable pouch, or plastic pouch for the 1kg size.
