Considered a Jing food in Taoism, activated charcoal is used for detoxification in Ayurvedic, traditional Chinese, and mainstream Western medicine alike. It has a highly porous, negatively charged surface that attracts and binds (adsorbs) positively charged toxins such as heavy metals and poisonous gasses. These toxins are then safely eliminated from the body along with the charcoal itself, resulting in higher energy levels and better gut health. Activated charcoal can also be used to resolve gas and bloating, and brushing with it will whiten teeth and enhance dental health by balancing oral pH levels and adsorbing cavity-causing plaque. Teelixir’s Coconut Charcoal is processed using sub-325 mesh to maximise its efficacy and will not alter the taste when mixed with water or food.
