Activated charcoal is a powerful and universal antitoxin to use for your health. It has numerous benefits including whitening your teeth, lowering your cholesterol, and removing toxins from your body. Even wonderful to remove blackheads and acne!
WHAT IS ACTIVATED CHARCOAL?
Charcoal is a fine black power that is primarily made from coal, coconut shells, bamboo or peat.
Activated charcoal should not be confused with the regular charcoal that’s been used in barbecues. The reason we call charcoal “activated” is because it has been processed at a very high temperature. This process changes the function and structure of the charcoal.
Note: The barbecue charcoal has toxins that are dangerous for humans.
HOW DOES ACTIVATED CHARCOAL WORK?
Activated charcoal is used to refine and purify any desired product. It’s unique enough that it makes you want to understand the scientific reasons why to use it. Basically, the secret behind is its negative cell charge.
This negative charge of the activated charcoal attracts positive mole cities and traps them preventing from absorption. Those positive mole cities are toxins, drugs, poisons, gases and other bad things.
Activated charcoal is amazing for the oral health of your entire mouth. It prevents cavities, cleanses your mouth, prevents gum diseases, and is wonderful for teeth whitening. It binds to the surface stains and plaque on the teeth and removes those old yellow teeth stains. And does it so naturally.
For teeth whitening, it’s surprisingly an easy process and can be done in less than 5 minutes. It can be done daily until desired effect is reached and then followed as a maintenance treatment.
