Activated-CharcoalNo, we aren’t trying to give you a good chuckle… charcoal really is on the leading edge of natural health, and for good reason, it’s loaded with health benefits for us all!

Next time you’re in a health food store or even a grocery store, pay close attention and you’ll soon notice charcoal is popping up everywhere from shampoo and facial masks to toothpaste, gut-cleansing drinks and even charcoal pills.

What’s the big deal about charcoal?

First, it is important to point out that what we are discussing is technically called activated charcoal, which is different than the charcoal you use to light the grill. Activated charcoal has oxygen added to it, which increases its porosity and adds to its surface area. It is normally used to remove chemicals, toxins, and gases from the environment, foods and water… and now from people too!

Activated charcoal has long been used in emergency rooms as a way to quickly detox the stomach and digestive system of too much alcohol or other dangerous poisons. It prevents the absorption and thus saves the patient’s life.

Now, it is also being used as a way to naturally whiten teeth without the use of chemicals, as a gentle and safe detoxifying and skin brightening facial treatment, as a hair cleanser, as a treatment for bug bites and small scratches, and so much more!charcoal soap

In addition to its anti-aging and beauty-boosting uses, activated charcoal also offers a long list of internal health benefits as well, including treatment for:

  • Bloating
  • Ulcers
  • Gas Discomfort
  • Digestive System Detox
  • Water Retention
  • IBS
  • Weight Loss
  • Tinnitus
  • Energy Levels

Even if you do not currently struggle with any digestional discomfort and health problems, activated charcoal is a fantastic way to cleanse the kidneys, colon and liver. This is a great way to keep your body functioning at 100% and further prevent any health problems down the line.

The easiest and most effective way to use charcoal for a whole body cleanse is to take it in capsule form, for quick digestion and full absorption for maximum benefit.

In fact, A Bio-nutritional Chemistry Professor from the University of Brussels, Dr. Richard C. Kaufman, BS, MS, PhD, has said there are 2 main ways a charcoal cleanse should be done for maximum detoxifying results:

  1. Use activated charcoal on two consecutive days each week. Take a total of 20 to 35 grams each day divided into two or three doses. Take in the morning, at midday and before bed on an empty stomach. Avoid excessive calories or processed foods on those days.
  2. Take about 20 grams a day of activated charcoal in divided doses for several months. Follow with a one-month break and resume the cycle.charcoal

It is interesting that charcoal has long been known to be the best single detoxifier for whole-body cleansing in ER and other medical settings (where it is depended on for saving lives!), but the natural health community is just now catching on to the fact that it can safely and effectively be used in so many health and beauty-boosting ways by all people!

Activated charcoal is safe, affordable and has endless uses! That’s why, if you haven’t already, you will soon start noticing charcoal based health and beauty products all over the place! Because it is safe, natural and proven, we give activated charcoal 2 big thumbs up! As long as it is a brand you trust, we bet you will see some real results!

Hi there! This is my little blog project where I am trying to learn more about health, wellness and living a balanced life, while also sharing a bit of my silly side as well. By "silly" I mean sarcastic. And by "a bit" I mean way too much. Sorry about that.♥ - Anna
