Activated charcoal to detox your body

What is activated charcoal?

Charcoal is usually wood that has had nearly everything burned out of it - all of the water and volatile compounds are removed through slow, dry heat, leaving only carbon behind.

Activated charcoal is a bit different - during production, it is exposed to any one of several chemicals that make tiny pores and bubbles in its surface. This process increases the surface area of the charcoal, thereby increasing its ability to bind to or adsorb other chemicals. This reaction and absorption capacity is why it is called 'activated'.

How it works to detoxify you
