Activated charcoal has gained some fame and attention in recent years as a unique and peculiar way to not only get brighter, whiter teeth but to detoxify your kidneys by filtering out undigested toxins. The health and wellness industry has seen a plethora of ways to use activated charcoal but one of the simplest, and most convenient ways to experience the benefits is to drink it. Now, I know what you may be thinking… what on earth does activated charcoal even taste like anyway? Activated charcoal adds very little taste to whatever it is added to—and the most delicious, and simplest way to ensure that your detox is exploding with flavor is to make an activated charcoal lemonade.
What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal, also known as activated carbon, is made of organic materials that have been processed and heated in very high temperatures to create small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. This type of charcoal is not the same type of charcoal you would typically use in a barbeque grill, for example—activated charcoal is food-grade and can be safely ingested.
