Activated charcoal is a fine black powder made of coconut shells, used to detox your body. It works by trapping toxins and chemicals in the gut, preventing their absorption back into the body during elimination.
The science behind it is that it’s negative electrical charge attracts positively charged molecules, like toxins, chemicals, and gases. The best part…it isn’t absorbed by your body, so it serves as a magical vessel to carry toxins out safely…yep we’re talking about poop, glorious poop!
This beauty can help with bloating and the always inconvenient (and funny!) but oh-so-natural flatulence. It can help lower cholesterol, and even helps prevent hangovers.
So we’ve curated a deliciously detoxifying smoothie with this gem just for you, our little love bugs!
*When using Activated Charcoal, whether in our smoothie or at home in your own creations, please remember that it’s imperative to drink 12-16 glasses of water each day. This will help prevent constipation (yep we’re talking about poop again!), as it can cause dehydration if you don’t drink your liquids in tandem with this amazing black powder.
