This Is Why You Need Activated Charcoal In Your Life

charcoal-powder

This black powder may look scary, but activated charcoal does wonders for the body. The reason why activated charcoal comes with the Full Body Cleanse is because it helps to trap heavy metal toxins and chemicals in the body and draw them out. It helps to lower cholesterol, reduce bloating, and help bile flow problems during pregnancy. Most commonly, activated charcoal is used to help treat drug overdoses or alcohol poisoning.

 

How Does It Work?

The short answer is that it flushes toxins from the body. This happens via the process of absorption. The charcoal doesn’t actually absorb the toxins; rather, it traps toxins in its tiny pores. It is also negatively charged, which attracts positively charged toxins, just like a magnet. One thing to note is that activated charcoal is not the charcoal you use in your barbecues.

 

While there are many different uses for activated charcoal, here are five uses that we love!

 

Water Filtration:

Similar to how charcoal traps toxins and chemicals in the body, it also traps solvents, pesticides, or waste in water. It is commonly used in many water filtration systems worldwide, but it cannot trap viruses or bacteria. Clean water is integral for optimal health, so using a filter with activated charcoal is great to have in your home!

 

Whitens Teeth:

Many videos of people brushing their teeth with charcoal products have surfaced around the web lately. Activated charcoal helps to promote great oral hygiene by balancing the pH levels in your mouth. It also helps to whiten your teeth, removing coffee, tea, or berry stains. Be careful not to brush with activated charcoal too much because it can be a bit abrasive to your gums and enamel.

 

Anti-Aging Properties:

While aging is a natural part of life, some people like to do what they can to remain youthful. Activated charcoal helps to support the adrenal glands and prevent cellular damage in the kidneys and liver. Taking activated charcoal also helps to keep your toxic load down, which helps you stay younger. It can also reduce your risk of cognitive decline!

 

Digestive Cleanser:

Activated charcoal is great for your digestive system. It helps to remove toxins, which can lead to a weakened immune system, allergies, oxidative damage, and digestive diseases. Most of the food in the Standard American Diet is laden with toxins and chemicals, so taking charcoal, in conjunction with eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, can help cleanse the digestives system.

 

Relieves Gas And Bloating:

Depending on how your body reacts to food, gas or bloating are very common digestive symptoms. Activated charcoal helps to relieve gas and bloating by binding to the gas-causing products in foods and flushing them from your system. Mix ½ teaspoon of activated charcoal powder in 8 ounces of alkaline water and drink it at night to relieve bloating symptoms.

    Q: I have obstructive sleep apnea and I sleep with a CPAP machine. I'm doing the full body detox. On the third night while taking the ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, I woke up in the middle of the night from a dream that my head was full of air and was about to explode. I took the CPAP mask off and I haven't taking the activated charcoal since. I believe my throat collapsed, however the first night using it I slept well. I am now on my fifth day with the FULL BODY DETOX. Do you have any suggestions. Will the lack of the charcoal water formula #7 ruin my detox.

    The ACTIVATED CHARCOALis not causing the problem. You associated it with the problem. But you don't have to take the charcoal.

    Q: What generally is the difference if I were to purchase from dherbs to get the activated charcoal instead of GNC. Also my friend says that he purchased the toothpaste off of dherbs.

    A:

    I can assure you we don't sell toothpaste. We never have! We only sell a top-selling herbal tooth powder which I highly recommend. In regards to charcoal, Dherbs is 100% quality. Period! GNC is a corporation and their products are usually cut with additives (fillers, binders, preservatives, etc.) There's no comparison between Dherbs and GNC! Take a chance and find out for yourself!
