In the search to improve the quality of life of the human being, for a long time it has been working on providing healthy options to achieve healthier lifestyle habits. From dishes prepared with special ingredients to simple edibles that are highly nutritious and that in the past were not known about their benefits.
Today, there is a new possibility that has echoed across the health food spectrum. It involves the addition of activated charcoal in drinks, such as lemonades for example.
The use of charcoal has various properties that help reduce toxins from the body, absorbing harmful substances and subsequently discharging them from the body. The process to obtain activated charcoal is carried out by heating the charcoal made from wood, or coconut or until it develops spongy pores.
Some of the most common uses for charcoal lemonades are:
- Food poisoning
- Hangover prevention
- Reduction of intestinal gas
- Reduction of cholesterol levels
- Increased energy level
These are just a few examples of the benefits you can get from drinking activated charcoal products.
Something important to note, that many companies that sell these products do not say, is that in addition to eliminating toxins, charcoal also eliminates the active substances of drugs that have been taken the same day you ingest the drink in question, so in those cases it is not highly recommended.
Certainly nowadays there is no food or drink that alone helps maintain a healthy lifestyle, however, these little tips complemented with exercise and a balanced diet will make you feel better about yourself.
