Activated Charcoal [Pharmaceutical Grade]
This Pharmaceutical Grade Activated Charcoal is made from coconut shells. It is profoundly detoxifying.
The use of Activated Charcoal for medicinal purposes dates back to 1,500BC.
It has been used for cases of acute toxicity from poisonous agents and snake bites etc. It is still used in hospitals, to this day, when a stomach pump is required.
Activated Charcoal For Skincare
Adding Activated Charcoal to clays, such as green clay and red clay, is a great way to supercharge the detoxification benefits of a face mask or body mask.
Activated Charcoal For Oral Health
Activated Charcoal is also excellent for oral health & teeth whitening. This is why we are finding an increasing number of commercial toothpastes containing v on pharmacy shelves.
However, you can use a small amount of Activated Charcoal with your preferred toothpaste to the same effect.
Activated Charcoal Kidney Health
Activated Charcoal is advocated for acute use for kidney health. If kidneys are heavily overburdened, they will fail to cleanse our blood properly, leading to all manner of subsequent issues.
A brief kidney cleanse using Activated Charcoal will help to eliminate the toxic burden on the kidneys, and restore kidney function.
But, it is imperative to thoroughly research Activated Charcoal for kidney health before considering a kidney cleanse using Activated Charcoal. Buying a book on the subject is advised.
Activated charcoal may be able to assist kidney function by filtering out undigested toxins and drugs.
The following quote is from an article in Medical News Today, which cites two very promising studies. These studies show gastrointestinal benefits and improved kidney function after Activated Charcoal administration.
Activated charcoal seems to be especially effective at removing toxins derived from urea, the main by-product of protein digestion. More research is needed, but some animal studies show that activated charcoal may help improve kidney function and reduce gastrointestinal damage and inflammation in those with chronic kidney disease.1
