Activated Charcoal Cures Hangovers? You Bet.

Activated charcoal offers many great health benefits, ranging from hangover cures to glowing skin.

Activated charcoal is acquired by heating charcoal made from coal, wood, peat or coconuts in some case, until it develops thousands of microscopic pores on its surface.

These tiny pores create a sponge like consistency and are incredibly absorbent. This absorbency allows charcoal to flush out impurities and eliminate toxins from the body such as waste and heavy metals.

Activated charcoal can be purchased from most health food stores for under $10 either in a charcoal pill or capsule form, or as charcoal powder which can be dissolved in a glass of water.

 The benefits:

It’s All About That Detox

Activated Charcoal acts as a fantastic natural detoxifier. Taking charcoal either as a powder or tablet will absorb toxins, chemicals, mould, or any other nasties from the body which will allow for more energy and better general health.

Glowing Skin

Activated charcoal is like a magnet that attracts and absorbs dirt and oil, making it perfect for clearing and refining pores. When dirt and oil found in pores come in contact with the carbon in the activated charcoal, they stick to it and then get washed away when the Charcoal is rinsed away, allowing for absolutely glowing, fresh skin. Experts say it takes a couple of weeks of regular charcoal intake to see results. 

No More Bloat

Activated Charcoal will attack and soak up any unwanted gas and acids in the stomach that can cause bloat. This will remove any uncomfortable stomach pains and result in a flatter stomach. Some people even claim that activated charcoal works to reduce the effects of food poisoning in the most natural way. 

 Say Good Bye to Hangovers

Due to the absorbing nature of Charcoal, it will soak up and metabolise any alcohol, or related toxins, in the body allowing for faster recovery time through a hangover.

Pearly Whites

Activated Charcoal is the most cost effective, natural teeth whitening product. Dipping a toothbrush in activated Charcoal powder, before brushing teeth, will remove plaque and whiten teeth in the process.

Magic Touch

Activated Charcoal powder can be used to create a paste (mixed with water) to treat minor injuries, skin irritations, allergic reactions, insect bites and stings as it draws out the infection. Baking soda must be added to the paste to lessen the strength of the Charcoal, which alone can be quite dehydrating to the affected area.
