Uses of Activated Charcoal That Might Change Your Life.

Activated charcoal is nothing new on the health scene; ancient Egyptians used it as early as 1500 BC (Cleopatra reportedly lined her eyes with charcoal), and women around the world have used it for teeth whitening, skin care and natural cleansing. In modern medicine, it’s used in emergency rooms to treat drug overdoses and poisoning, by attaching to toxins and preventing their absorption. The theory in beauty products is the same: activated charcoal attracts and binds to toxins, bacteria, dirt and oil, preventing them from causing harm. But when we say “charcoal,” we’re not talking about the stuff in the bottom of your grill left over from your last barbecue. Never use that. It’s filled with harmful chemicals. No, I am talking about a different kind of charcoal. Activated charcoal is derived from wood or coconut husks and then treated to increase its ability to bind to toxins. The result is a coal-black powder that’s available in several forms, including powders, capsules, soaps and tooth products.
