Why everyone is going Charcoal Crazy?

Why everyone is going Charcoal Crazy?

From Charcoal croissant to Charcoal Ice cream and classic Charcoal Latte… You may have noticed the charcoal trend in town.

So why everyone is going Charcoal crazy? What are the benefits of it?

First of all, what is activated charcoal? It is carbon produced from any organic material bamboo, coconut husk, wood… and it is activated after contact with extreme high heat (steam and oxidation process). Usually coconut husk is the one used for dietary purposes.

Healers have been using activated charcoal for centuries to soak up poisons and improve intestinal health thanks to a process called “aDsorption”. An adsorbent blinds to substances, and capture, remove everything: poisons, heavy metals, chemicals and bacteria. How does it work? Actually, the surface has a negative electric charge that attracts positively charged toxins and escorts them out of your body through the natural elimination process of your intestine. So, use of activated charcoal can detoxify your body.

Studies showed as well that that activated charcoal reduces bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol as much as some prescription medications.

Not only a great as digestive supplement, Activated charcoal uses help prevent cellular damage to kidneys and liver for instance thanks to its toxins and chemicals cleanse actions. In addition to being a great digestive supplement, you probably notice that activated charcoal was used as well in cosmetics to whiten teeth or cleanse skin. The same detox principle is used.

However, a daily consumption can result in side effects like decreasing vitamins or medications absorption, gastrointestinal discomfort like vomiting, nausea, diarrhea…  

Too much of anything is never a good thing. Remember: everything in moderation ;)
