Activated Charcoal

I love taking and using Activated Charcoal for many different reasons. Here are my favorite uses of this magical find:

Teeth Whitening. I like to use the powder form and simply get my toothbrush wet, put the activated charcoal on the brush and just brush it all over my teeth while brushing as usual. Be careful because it does stain everything else it may touch. 

Mold Cleansing. We don't like to think about the facts when it comes to mold living in our body but it unfortunately does. Toxic mold can cause depression, kidney and liver failure, eye irritation, heart failure, decreased brain function, vomiting, severe respiratory disease and imparied immune system function. 

Bloating. If you're just having one of those days, activated charcoal is a great way to help with that uncomfortable feeling. 

Treats Alcohol Poisoning & Helps Prevent Hangovers. Yep, you heard me right. Ever wonder how celebrities party all night and seem fine the next day? Activated Charcoal helps rid the body of unwanted substances. Artificial sweeteners and chemicals are found in alcohol, especially in mixed drinks while activated charcoal removes these toxins. You're welcome ;)

Water Filtering. Great way to filter your water. 

Skin and Body Health. Can help relieve discomfort from insect bites and also help with body odor issues. 

Anti Aging. Because of it detoxify qualities it helps flush out the gross stuff in our major organs keeping us good as new. It also helps with that annoying brain fog we get every now and then. 

*Activated Charcoal can cause dehydration so it's imperative to drink 12-16 glasses of water per day.
