Still don’t know activated carbon? It is a charcoal that is obtained from coconut shells, beech wood, eucalyptus, black poplar, willow, pine or oak.

Activated or activated carbon is known to be a powerful detoxifier in emergency situations due to its properties but for centuries, it has been used as an air, water and body purifier.

This purifier has become fashionable again thanks to celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, who have confessed to having added activated charcoal detox juice to their diet. A juice that is prepared by mixing charcoal with lemon, lime, agave and alkalized water; and it is already marketed by numerous brands of diet shakes.

What are the benefits of activated charcoal?

  1. Purifies: Activated carbon, as it is a very porous substance, is capable of trapping and clinging to the toxins that we have in our body. For this reason, it helps to purify our body to keep the immune system in good condition and to protect the organs.
  2. Helps digestion: If you’ve eaten too much and feel bloated, activated charcoal is a great ally to relieve the feeling of heaviness and help regulate digestion, as well as to prevent gas.
  3. Anti-aging: Aging due to age is natural and inevitable, but what we can avoid is premature aging with activated carbon, since it helps prevent cell damage in the kidneys and liver. In addition, as we have said before, it eliminates toxins that damage our body.
  4. Lowers Cholesterol: Numerous studies show that activated charcoal lowers bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol as much as some prescription drugs.
  5. Eliminate mold: Mold is not only on the outside, but we can also have it inside our body. This is the cause of kidney and liver failure, decreased brain function, heart disease, eye irritation, headaches, vomiting, impaired immune system function, and severe respiratory distress.

Although it has numerous benefits, the disadvantages of this juice are that it can trap the nutrients in the food you have eaten that day and can even alter the intestinal flora.
