Activated Coconut Charcoal has risen in popularity in recent times due to it’s notable health benefits.
Yes, it’s black. No, it doesn’t taste like coconuts. It’s actually odourless and tasteless and is derived from the husks of coconuts. It maintains a high alkalinity, which enables it to fight infections and bacteria. It’s porous surface has a negative charge which attracts positively charge gas and toxins causing them to bind to it. These chemicals and toxins are absorbed into it’s pores which is why it’s used in emergency rooms for emergency toxin removal.
Some of the many other health benefits from this charcoal include detoxification, oral health, kidney and liver support, assistance for bloating and gas, skin health and much more!
We’ll write more about these benefits at a later date, and whilst the health advantages render it a very popular therapeutic product at the moment, if it’s an ultra-fine food grade activated coconut charcoal you can use it for anything from teeth whitening to an ingredient in foods and drinks. It’s really risen in popularity as a trendy addition to cafe menus (our local cafe uses our Activated Coconut Charcoal for their signature Charcoal Chicken dish!), “nice”creams, breads and baking, and even cocktails!
