7 Benefits of Activated Charcoal: Medicine of the Egyptians, Greeks, and Native Americans


Carbon, also known as Activated Charcoal, Carbon, or it’s more common name, Activated Charcoal has been around for thousands of years. It was even used by Hippocrates and Pliny in their day.

Carbon is 100% alkaline and is spinning with electrons making the substance highly electrical. Carbon’s negative ionic charge attracts positive ionic charges (of toxins and poisons) causing them to bind and then escorts them out of the body via the eliminative channel of the intestines.

Charcoal is “activated” because it is made to have a very small particle size. This increases its overall surface area and absorptive capacity. Activated charcoal is produced by adding acid and steam to carbonaceous materials such as wood, coal, rye starch, or coconut shells. To understand just how effective this substance is at absorbing toxins, one standard 50-gram dose of activated charcoal has the surface area of 10 football fields. It also encourages bowel movements, so it can help to rid the body of toxins rather quickly.

7 Benefits of Activated Charcoal

1.Just like baking soda, charcoal absorbs odor and works great for the refrigerator. Put your charcoal in either a perforated bag or an empty bowl and place it in the back of your refrigerator. You can change it out every time you clean your refrigerator.

2.No substance removes acidic plaque from the teeth like Carbon. It will greatly clean your teeth and help to remove stains on the teeth (especially stains derived from drinking coffee).

3.Using activated charcoal, you can make a face mask that helps pull the toxins and impurities out of your skin. Open 3 charcoal tablets into a bowl, a little warm water and a squeeze of honey and stir until it becomes a paste. Then apply it to your face, making sure to avoid your mouth, eyes, and nose area.

4.This majestic substance helps to heal all colon diseases and greatly benefits the intestines. Carbon will greatly counteract flatulence (gas) and help to eradicate foul odors in the colon or intestinal tract.

5.Another good use for Carbon is in the area of accidental ingestion of poison, drugs (legal and illegal), and household chemicals. All you have to do is add a teaspoon of Carbon to a glass of water, stir it up really good, and have the person who ingested the poison to drink the glass full of Carbon water.

6.You can use those small pieces of your all natural hardwood lump charcoal at the bottom of the bag of or break it up into 1 inch squares as a substitute for mulch. If you cover your soil with it, it helps reduce weeds and keeps the moisture the soil so you don’t have to water as often.

7.Scratches can be a big eyesore on your hardwood floors. For a quick fix, use your charcoal as a temporary corrector. Just color in the scratch and wipe it off to make sure you don’t have a lot of excess. This works best on dark wood floors.
