Activated Charcoal-Why is it beneficial?

Activated charcoal is a natural treatment used to remove toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so that they aren't reabsorbed. Activated charcoal is made from natural ingredients that are used medicinally for many major conditions sch as poisoning and overdoses, as well as chemical build up in the body over the years. Activated charcoal is made from controlled decomposition of carbon-based compounds like coconut shells or vegetable matter.

How does activated charcoal work?

It works by trapping toxins and chemicals in its millions of small pores. Instead of absorbing the chemicals through the charcoal, it works through a chemical process called adsorption. Adsorption is the chemical reaction where elements bind to a surface. The surface of activated charcoal has a negative electric charge that causes positive-charged toxins and gas to bind with it. The charcoal is activated by processing it at very high temperatures. The high temperatures change its internal structure, reducing the size of its pores and increasing its surface area.

Health Benefits of Activated Charcoal:

  • Whiten teeth
  • Alleviate gas and bloating
  • Treats alcohol poisoning (and prevents hangovers)
  • Mold cleansing
  • Water Filtration
  • Emergency toxin removal
  • Skin and body health
  • Digestive cleanse
  • Anti-aging
  • Reduces high cholesterol


One thing to keep in mind when taking activated charcoal is that as with any supplement, there can be side effects. Potential side effects include constipation, black stools and slowing or blocking of the intestinal tract. It is also important for maximum absorption to take activated charcoal an hour and a half to 2 hours before a meal, supplements, and prescription medicine.
