Activated Charcoal Benefits

June 14, 2016

Activated charcoal, also known as activated carbon, is a substance known for many amazing health benefits. It’s almost identical to regular charcoal with only one difference – activated charcoal is created solely for medicinal use. It is created in a process where regular charcoal is heated with a gas which cause its expansion, creating a porous surface responsible for trapping toxins.

Activated charcoal has been used for decades for different purposes, and today it has a wide range of health benefits.

1. Toxins

A study published in a prestigious journal clearly indicated that activated carbon prevents the gastrointestinal absorption of many toxins and drugs in emergency situations and increases their elimination. It can help with:

  • Toxins from pesticides
  • Lead, mercury and other chemicals
  • Pharmaceutical drugs like morphine, cocaine, opium and aspirin

Therefore, if someone has taken a toxic substance, consuming activated charcoal can help toxins pass their body quickly and save their life. It’s also important to note that activated charcoal has no effect on cyanide, alcohol, some acids and a few metals like lithium and iron.

2. Skin Health

Due to its effectiveness in toxin removal, activated charcoal help reduce acne and other skin impurities. The best way to apply it is to mix one capsule of the FORZA Activated Charcoal capsule of powder into a teaspoon of water, 5 drops of tea tree oil, aloe Vera gel and a pinch of sea salt. By mixing everything together you’ll create a black mask which will do wonders for your skin.

3. Teeth

People have been using activated charcoal to whiten their teeth for decades. It appears that this black powder is really effective and all you have to do is place it onto your toothbrush and start brushing your teeth. Seeing your mouth after washing teeth with charcoal can be strange at first, but soon you’ll get used to it and in a couple of weeks you’ll get your desired results.

4. Gas

Activated charcoal is very effective at gas reduction, and can relieve nausea or an upset stomach. It travels though our gastrointestinal tract and traps and absorbs intestinal gas, preventing smelly farts. People who experience bloating, belching, abdominal cramps and flatulence after eating use it after their meals, especially if beans are on the menu.

5. Bee Stings and Bites

Mixing a poultice of activated carbon with flaxseed powder or cornstarch and water can help cure spider and snake bites, poison ivy rashes, bee stings and other poisoning bites. This can be very beneficial, especially for people who experience allergic reaction to bee stings or snake bites.

Activated Charcoal Supplement

When you take a look at all its benefits, it’s no wonder why this carbon has become an important supplement. FORZA Activated Charcoal contains 1000mg per capsule and can help remove toxins, but also get rid of gas and skin problems.
