Activated charcoal is popping up all over the wellness world, from whitening toothpastes to detox drinks (think smoothies, lattes, and lemonades, which can range in color from gray to a striking jet black). Quick science lesson about activated charcoal, because it isn’t the same as the charcoal you throw on the grill. Instead, it’s charcoal that’s been heated to high temps, which increases its overall surface area. This porous charcoal is often used to treat acute poisoning (like the kind that happens with overdoses) because the chemical makeup of activated charcoal means that it can bind to other substances really well. And when charcoal binds to toxins, that means fewer toxins for your body to absorb. That’s why this remedy has gained popularity as a detox option, and why it’s also sometimes included in hangover remedies or used to treat intestinal gas.
