How does Activated Charcoal work?

Activated Charcoal is a highly absorbent substance with millions of tiny pores that help capture and eliminate harmful chemicals and toxins in the body.

Charcoal doesn’t absorb the toxins, but rather, it undergoes the chemical process of adsorption.

In the body, absorption is the process where nutrients from food, toxins, and chemicals, are soaked up and assimilated into the bloodstream.

Adsorption is the chemical reaction where these same elements bind to a surface, in this case, the porous surface of charcoal.

The porous surface of charcoal has a negative electric charge that works like a magnet throughout the body to attract positively charged elements, such as toxic heavy metals and gas, and binds to them to safely and effectively remove them from the body.

With the continuous rise of harmful chemicals and pollutants in our environment, and the toxins from low quality, processed foods, it's very important that we support our brain and immune health by consuming foods and supplements that help eliminate the toxins we’re exposed to on an everyday basis.

Chronic exposure to toxins causes inflammation, cellular damage, allergic reactions, low immunity, and rapid aging.

Activated charcoal is the perfect tool to help remove unwanted toxins from the body, gently and safely, and leave you feeling regenerated with a new sense of vitality and wellbeing.

Activated charcoal increases energy and supports anti-aging.

Toxins that flood your body and affect the way your body produces energy can cause accelerated aging.

If you use charcoal to bind those toxins in your gut before they are processed and cause damage in the body, your gut health will improve, your energy levels will increase, and you will perform better.

Charcoal can help minimize the effects of gas and bloating

Particularly when you eat poor or low quality, processed foods. If you’re out at a restaurant and you’ve eaten inflammatory promoting foods that contain bad oils or unknown chemicals, simply take 1/2 - 1 tsp of Teelixir Coconut Charcoal with a full glass of water to help relieve the symptoms of gas and bloating. Follow the same procedure one hour before you know you’re going to eat a bad meal or drink alcohol.

Charcoal Boosts Jing and supports the Kidneys and Liver.

Rarely do we find black in nature. However, there are some natural foods rich in the colour black such as rice, chia seeds, blackberries, and beans.

Black foods are known, especially in the Taoist tradition, to possess a quality known as Jing.

Jing is a powerful substance that forms the essence of who and what we are. It is the primal energy of our life that determines one's ultimate vitality and the quantity and quality of one’s lifespan.

Imagine Jing is like your "savings account" of long-term energy. It is our body’s battery pack. It's very important that we protect, nourish, and preserve our Jing energy to live a long and healthy life.

Black represents Jing, and it is this black counterpart in Jing foods where we find the most nutrient density that offers the greatest benefits for human health. Like many of the Jing tonic herbs that are black in nature- He Shou Wu, Chaga mushroom, and Prepared Rehmannia, Charcoal is another powerful Jing supportive food that can help build the body’s foundational energy reserves and support optimal Kidney and Liver function.

The great reservoir of Jing energy is rooted in the Kidneys and is connected with longevity, vitality, sexual energy and our creative powers.

The Kidneys are our battery pack. To lead a long healthy life, one must accumulate an abundance of Jing to recharge the Kidneys and to avoid its reckless dissipation.

Jing governs the strength of our structural frame, hair, nails, our healing powers, our sexual functions and reproductive potential, our youthfulness and ability to handle stress, adversity, overwork, illness and the many other challenges that we face in our lives.

Activated charcoal is a great first aid kit resource.

In the event of an emergency where poisons, toxins, drugs, or chemicals have been ingested, immediately call 000 (or your country’s emergency line), and tell the operator that you have charcoal on hand. In the appropriate situation, they may advise administering charcoal before emergency help arrives.

Charcoal is often used for the safe and effective treatment of poisoning and drug overdoses. It is used widely all over the world in emergency rooms and hospital wards for this reason.

Activated charcoal is used in water filtration systems throughout the world

Drinking high-quality water is essential for our health and longevity.

Most tap water is toxic and flooded with chemicals and fluoride. Tap water should be avoided whenever possible.

Activated charcoal helps cleanse toxic water by trapping the impurities in water including solvents, pesticides, industrial waste, and other chemicals.

One study showed that activated carbon filters (activated charcoal) removed some fluoride. However, activated charcoal does not trap viruses, bacteria and hard-water minerals.

Note: Activated charcoal is NOT the same charcoal you use for your barbecue! That stuff is loaded with toxins and chemicals and should never be consumed. Not all activated charcoal is created equal. Before selecting any activated charcoal product, it’s important that you know what it’s made from. Always look for activated charcoal made from coconut shells or identified wood species.

  • Never consume activated charcoal at the same time as supplements or prescription medications, including the contraceptive pill.
  • The high adsorption ability of activated charcoal may reduce the effectiveness of certain medications. Take charcoal two hours prior to meals, supplements, and prescription medications.
  • Always consult your physician before consuming activated charcoal if you are taking medications.
  • May cause harmless darkening of stools.
  • May cause constipation when taken in high doses. Remember to drink plenty of water!
  • Do not put charcoal directly on the broken skin.
  • Not intended for long-term use.
  • Be cautious using charcoal around clothing and surfaces as it may cause stains.
