Carbo Animalis is a homeopathic remedy made from animal charcoal, useful for the health of lymphatic tissue, nervous system and gastrointestinal mucosa. Let’s find out better.

Description of Carbo Animalis

The homeopathic remedy Carbo Animalis originates from animal charcoal. The latter, also called bone charcoal or animal black or even bone black, is obtained from the carbonization of bones and animal tissues.
