Activated charcoal is a potent natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so that the body doesn’t reabsorb them.
Gets rid of gas and bloating
Activated charcoal works by binding the gas caused by products in foods that cause discomfort. Take 500 milligrams one hour prior to a typical gas producing meal, with a full glass of water. Follow with an additional glass of water immediately thereafter to help get the charcoal into your system, where it can bind with gas-producing elements.
Reduces high cholesterol
Activated charcoal has been proven effective in reducing bad cholesterol (LDL) and increasing good cholesterol (HDL) as much as many prescription medications.
Reduces skin irritation
Add charcoal to some coconut oil and rub it on your skin. It reduces redness and swelling. It can even be used to treat bites from snakes and dangerous spiders.
Add little to your tooth paste and normally brush your teeth. It removes built up stains from some of the toughest foods and drinks. Brush with it when you are in the shower, because it can make a black mess of your sink.
