Activated charcoal is a botanical substance that’s been around for thousands of years.
It’s created by taking charcoal and treating it with oxidising gases, steam or air.
Centuries ago it was used as an antidote to poison and diseases.
It’s said to trap and bind toxins, and bring them to the surface, or carry them through the body so they are excreted rather than absorbed.
These days you can consume it as a tablet supplement, or in charcoal lattes, charcoal pizza and charcoal ice-cream.
As such, the entirely natural ingredient has triggered something of a “goth” food trend.
Aside from curing someone of poison, there’s a range of modern-day health benefits and other purported uses.
It’s thought to have a detoxifying effect, that works to reduce bloating and helps digestion.
Indeed, in 2011 the European Food Safety Authority supported the claim that it can reduce flatulence by absorbing excess gas from the intestines.
Interestingly, there are also suggestions it can go as far as helping colon disease.
Activated charcoal is being used in toothpaste to replace fluoride, known to trigger harmful effects on the body in the long term.
It’s claimed to strip away stains and plaque to make your teeth look whiter.
