3 Uses For Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is basically Black Magic.
It is a potent natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t reabsorb them.
It’s made from a variety of sources, but when used for natural healing, it’s important to select activated charcoal made from coconut shells or other natural sources.
You can find it in health food stores either in capsules or powder.

1. Use to Whiten Teeth.
Have your teeth become stained from too much coffee or wine? Activated charcoal is a very effective, natural, and cost-friendly solution to whiten teeth! It works to whiten teeth by adsorbing plaque and microscopic tidbits that stain teeth.


2. Prevent Hangovers.
While activated charcoal does not adsorb alcohol directly, it does help quickly remove other toxins from the body that contribute to hangovers. Alcohol is rarely consumed in its pure form; mixers that include artificial sweeteners and chemicals are common. Activated charcoal removes these toxins.
In addition, when activated charcoal is taken at the same time as alcohol, some studies show it can significantly reduce blood alcohol concentrations.

3. Reduces gas and bloating.
We already know that our digestion slows down when we fly, and how bloated we can become. Take activated charcoal to alleviate uncomfortable gas and bloating. It works by binding with the gas-causing byproducts in foods that cause discomfort.

It is also great to use if you have eaten food that is “off” or if you think you have food poisoning
