Activated charcoal is one of nature’s finest magnetic sponges for absorbing toxins, pain from burns, poisons, pollutants and bacteria. Eden Healthfoods Activated Charcoal is ultra-fine and‚ will adsorb and render harmless over 3,000 known drug residues, pesticides, insecticides and just about every harmful chemical known! It’s also a great addition to your beauty cabinet as it can be used to detox skin, digestive system and even whiten your teeth!
An ultra-fine powder derived from pure coconut shell fibre. It has been steam activated (unlike chemical activation) making it 3-5 times more porous. It has also been medicinally activated using a purification process which empties the carbon molecules completely, further increasing its surface area, which enhances its adsorption and drawing capacity (more than steam activation alone).
Internally, charcoal cannot adsorb all poisons, but it can bind with, and thus neutralise many of them. Here are but a few of the many things it adsorbs:
- Many industrial toxins including DDT and dieldrin, strychnine, malathion, parathion
- Many medical drugs including aspirin, barbiturates cocaine, opium, nicotine, morphine, penicillin and sulphas.
- Many inorganic chemicals including mercury, phosphorous, chlorine, lead, iron and silver.
It’s also a great multi-tasking product for your beauty cabinet as it can be used as a tooth whitener, face mask and to help detox organs internally and externally.
