Activated charcoal 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. Charcoal is made from coal, wood, or other substances. It becomes “activated charcoal” when high temperatures combine with a gas or activating agent to expand its surface area. When used for natural healing it’s important to select activated charcoal made from coconut shells or other natural sources.
Healers from Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, and Western Medicine have used activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is used to treat poisonings, reduce intestinal gas, lower cholesterol levels, prevent hangover, and treat bile flow problems during pregnancy. It also used as air and water purifiers. Activated charcoal is a global remedy for general detoxification, digestion issues, heart health, and anti-aging.
Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in its millions of tiny pores. It doesn’t absorb the toxins but instead it works through the chemical process of adsorption. Adsorption is the chemical reaction where elements bind to a surface. Taking activated charcoal on a daily basis is a great way to help you thrive in an overly toxin-filled environment. Whenever you take activated charcoal, it’s imperative to drink 12-16 glasses of water per day. It can cause dehydration if adequate amounts of water aren’t consumed in tandem. This also helps to flush out the toxins quickly and prevents constipation experienced by some individuals.
Activated Charcoal Uses
You shouldn’t take activated charcoal if you’re taking prescription medication, as it could render your medication useless. Before you try these out, remember that activated charcoal may have many health benefits but it’s not a wonder drug. We recommend keeping activated charcoal ingestion to a moderate amount when you first try it out.
