In recent years, charcoal became trendy as a result of a surge in people’s interest in zero waste lifestyle. The extremely porous texture of activated charcoal traps toxins and chemicals, and since activated charcoal cannot be absorbed by the human body, the activated charcoal carrying the chemicals and toxins it has absorbed are carried out of the body through feces. This absorbing capacity has led to activated charcoal being used to:

  • treat diarrhea and food poisoning
  • treat overdoses following oral ingestion 
  • improve intestinal and kidney health
  • reduce intestinal gase
  • whitened teeth and improve oral health 
  • cure soft tissue conditions such as skin rashes

You get it, activated charcoal is an extraordinary product. And that is not even the best part: up to date there has been no adverse reactions to the use of activated charcoal!

Although having countless health benefits, the main reason why individuals are purchasing activated charcoal is to make tap water taste better. Have you ever noticed that tap water and bottled water taste different? Some people will say that all waters taste the same, but that is in fact not true. Indeed, water sommelier (we also didn’t know this job existed until recently, don’t worry), Martin Riese, said that water can vary almost as much as wine! This is due to all the minerals and other compounds, including impurities, that water picks up during its long journey to your tap. Due to its filtering capacities, activated charcoal is able to absorb impurities, hence removing the bad taste that tap water can carry with it and make it taste like mineral water flowing straight out of the Alps! People in general have been quite impressed with this function of activated charcoal.
