Britt Brandon is a certified personal trainer, nutrition specialist, and author of Activated Charcoal for Health. In this book, Britt explains that activated charcoal is a natural agent that offers many health benefits throughout daily life. Though it is regularly available, it is not yet readily used.
Britt describes activated charcoal as a granulated powder, though it can be used in a variety of forms. The key is to purchase it from providers that sell quality versions of the product. Though there are ways to make it at home, Britt would not recommend doing so.
Activated charcoal is so useful because of its propensity to cling to things and its ability to act as a cleansing agent. It binds to anything that is a chemical or a foreign body and flushes it from the body. Britt notes that it is important to consume charcoal at appropriate intervals to ensure that any supplements or medication you take are not flushed as a result.
The book details many of the benefits and uses of activated charcoal. First, activated charcoal is especially helpful in improving cholesterol levels and preventing heart disease, as all toxins are removed from the body and it is able to operate in an optimized state. Activated charcoal can also help to improve cognitive function, remove stain deposits on teeth, and minimize varicose veins, just to name a few.
A charcoal detox is another topic of discussion. While this can be helpful, it needs to be implemented hand in hand with other healthy lifestyle implementations such as a cleaner diet or more physical activity. It cannot be used as the “end all, be all,” but rather used in addition to healthy everyday choices.
