What is Activated Charcoal and Why Is It Good for You?
Activated charcoal is a flavorless, odorless black powder. It is made by treating charcoal at a very high temperature in the presence of oxygen. The process makes it highly porous. The final product can then be used as supplements and even added to products like toothpaste or ice cream.
The activated charcoal consists of a negative electrical charge that attracts positively charged molecules in the body like gasses and toxins. In this way, the toxins and chemicals bind to the activated charcoal, which is then eliminated in the form of stool from the body. Overall, activated charcoal is a very healthy ingredient.
