Charcoal is a man of many talents. Despite its simplicity and humble beginnings of a mere flame, charcoal is a powerhouse of goodness. From our skin to our tummies, Charcoal becomes a potent purification that works in perfect harmony with the human body.
Essentially, Charcoal traps the toxins and chemicals in your body and prevents their subsequent absorption.
Activated charcoal is a fine deep black powder formed on burnt bone char, coconut shells, wood, peat, petroleum coke, coal, olive pits or sawdust.
It becomes 'activated' by heating it at really high temperatures which in turn changes its physical structure. Its pores reduce in size while the surface area increases, resulting in a substance more porous and absorbent than normal charcoal.
This new texture is negatively charged, attracting positively charged molecules like toxins, chemicals and gases. But since it's not absorbed by our bodies, it simply carries the nasties and comes out in a number two.
Do not confuse Activated charcoal with the charcoal on your barbie. That charcoal hasn't been at a high enough temperature to be activated and still contains toxins harmful to humans.
Charcoal is commonly used as a teeth whitener!
Charcoal is a heaven send for your gut.
Charcoal is beautiful expressive art medium.
Due to its toxin absorption and the human body's inability to absorb the charcoal, it's the perfect emergency poison extractor.
