Activated Charcoal

My clients often ask me what they can take if they drink too much alcohol or have an indulgent meal. I suggest activated charcoal. In fact, charcoal is administered in hospitals to patients experiencing a drug overdose or food poisoning.

Its benefits include detoxification, as charcoal has the unique ability to bind to heavy metals and toxins, as well as aid in the relief of gas and bloating.

Be picky about the charcoal you choose. I like mine made from coconut shells, like those found in the BulletProof brand. Integrative Therapeutics also makes a great one too.

Always take charcoal at least one hour away from food, supplements, or medication, as it can interrupt the absorption of nutrients.
