Activated Charcoal

If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with activated charcoal. I have been since I was little. My parents were always holistic people. We were never big on medications unless absolutely necessary (however we are big believers in vaccines).

I LOVE activated charcoal. I drink it in my drinks, I take charcoal pills when I have stomach problems, my deodorant is made with it, my face wash is charcoal, my face masks are charcoal, etc. It is literally part of my every day routine!

If you aren’t familiar with activated charcoal, note that this is NOT the charcoal you get from your grill! SO not the same. Not even close. The stuff from your grill is toxic! Please make sure to purchase your activates charcoal from a reputable supplier. Activated charcoal is not a naturally occurring substance, but rather is made from sources such as coal, wood or coconut shells and becomes “activated” through a heating process. It traps unwanted chemicals in its tiny pores by a process called adsorption, where positively charged toxins attach themselves to the negative charge of activated charcoal.

Here are the top uses for activated charcoal:

•Gas & bloating

•Reduces joint pain

•Whitens Teeth

•Prevents bad breath

•Prevents cell damage to kidneys and liver

•Reduces bad cholesterol

•Promotes healthy digestion

•Traps toxins and chemicals
