After getting an upset stomach, my friend passed me two little black capsules. “Activated charcoal,” he said. I had just eaten a bowl of spicy lamb noodles and a black sesame ice cream cone within the span of an hour. I was stuffed and wasn’t feeling very good.
He said, “I take these as soon as I feel like I have had food poisoning. Upset stomach. Rumbling tummy. A little nauseous.” That’s exactly how I felt so I took the two activated charcoal and then half an hour I was as happy as a clam who had managed to escaped from the bake.
Apparently the activated charcoal sops up all the toxins like a sponge. And apparently it isn’t only effective inside of your body. There are many uses.
I have yet to experiment properly with activated charcoal but after taking two of those little magical pills I am a believer. I think back to my favorite African black soap, and how well it cleaned, it must have had activated charcoal in it. In my research I found out there were many products on the market with activated charcoal:
I’m going to try it as soon as I can find some activated charcoal! In the picture I was experimenting with a Dead Sea salt mud mask. Maybe you guys can try it and let me know how it works? Best of luck 🙂
