Superfood Spotlight: Activated Charcoal


Yes, yes. We know it sounds pretty counterintuitive at first. But bear with us for a moment on this, and we’ll explain. Activated charcoal is actually one of the healthiest, most physically helpful substances you can welcome into your body.

For over 10,000 years, healers from Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, and Western Medicine have used activated charcoal to soak up poisons, and to improve intestinal health through a process called “adsorption” (yes, you read that correctly), which means “to bind to” rather than “to absorb.”

It can extract and neutralize thousands of times its own weight in gases, heavy metals, toxins, poisons, and other chemicals that we don’t want loitering around inside us.

Additionally, because carbon is alkaline, it contains lots of negatively charged ions that cling to the positive ions of toxins to clean out your inner ecosystem and escort impurities out of the body – alcohol included. (So basically, say hello to one of the most efficient hangover remedies!)

It also has anti-aging properties. Studies show that activated charcoal prevents many cellular changes associated with aging, adrenal gland, and kidney function.

Meanwhile, charcoal is a huge agent for detox, cleansing, and assisting the healing process of the body, preventing/helping hangovers, helping with intestinal issues/food poisoning/gases. It also helps keep you sharp and focused. Add to it, lemon, maple, and lavender for maximum detoxification.

That’s exactly why we created our charcoal lavender lemonade. Drink it in, and let it take your detox levels to new places.
