Overview

Activated charcoal is a black, odorless, flavorless powder that has been used since ancient times to treat various ailments. Activated charcoal is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen at very high temperatures to make it more porous. This treatment changes its internal structure, reducing the size of its pores and increasing its surface area. Nowadays, it’s most commonly utilized in medical settings to treat drug overdoses or as an emergency anti-poison remedy. Activated charcoal is thought to offer several other benefits, including less gas and flatulence, lower cholesterol levels, and improved kidney function. Some people claim that it helps whiten your teeth, filters water, and even cures hangovers.

Benefits

It makes sense that activated charcoal can be used for a variety of treatments, as its powerful ability to eliminate toxins has been proven time and time again. Use it on your skin to tighten pores, treat acne, heal bug bites and cuts, and balance oily skin. Rather than ingesting activated charcoal like so many other instances call for, using it as a skin mask or a topical treatment can yield fast results.

Activated charcoal is the key ingredient to turn to when you want a deeper cleanse that removes deeper impurities from your face. If you love to use a lot of different skin or makeup products, over time some microparticles can get clogged in your pores and cause blemishes like pimples, blackheads, or overall dirt buildup. Using an activated charcoal cleanser or face scrub is a great way to fight off the negative effects of these impurities under your skin. It’s safe to use regularly. But if you tend to have dry or sensitive skin, use a scrub as a weekly deep cleansing. People with oily skin will benefit more from a regular or daily charcoal face wash.
Oily skin types often say they love activated charcoal because of its awesome ability to absorb excess oil. While a regular face wash might clean the surface of oily skin, activated charcoal reaches deep into the pores and soaks up extra oil.The absorbing power comes from the large surface area inside the activated charcoal. When you look at it under a microscope, activated charcoal particles look like little sponges. Going into the skin via a face wash or facial scrub, the charcoal powder works its magic specifically in your pores.

Activated charcoal may be able to assist kidney function by filtering out undigested toxins and drugs. Activated charcoal seems to be especially effective at removing toxins derived from urea, the main byproduct of protein digestion.
Activated charcoal may help eliminate waste products like urea from the kidneys, and thus benefit people with chronic kidney disease, who can’t remove these waste products as effectively as people with healthy kidneys.
A healthy digestive system is the cornerstone of optimum health, with the use of Activated Charcoal helping to promote overall digestive health by the removal of toxins. Routinely cleansing the digestive system of toxins can boost immune function, alleviate joint pain, enhance nutrient absorption, increase energy levels and increase brain functioning.
Activated Charcoal is a hugely popular ingredient in many detox and cleanse programs due to its ability to bind to mycotoxins, bad bacteria, microbes, mould and heavy metals and excrete them safely from the body.
Activated Charcoal can actually prevent many cellular changes that are associated with aging. It helps to prevent cellular damage to the kidneys and liver and supports healthy adrenal glands. A healthy adrenal system is necessary to help the body manage stress – a well-known cause of premature aging.
Activated charcoal is occasionally used for water filtration. A water filter that has activated carbon (charcoal) can help remove certain chemicals from water before you drink or use it.
Activated charcoal has the necessary components to keep your entire body fresh and alive! Working to eliminate toxins and chemicals that linger in our bodies, taking a few dose of activated charcoal per day can flush your system.
Many individuals suffer from digestive problems including gas and bloating after meals. If this is a common occurrence and becomes problematic, try using activated charcoal after eating. It works to bind together the elements in your meal that cause gas and bloating and helps you to eliminate them in the bathroom.
