Charcoal has many surprising uses aside from just grilling. Did you know that ingesting charcoal can be beneficial to your health?
Charcoal may not be the first ingredient that comes to mind when you think about cold-pressed juice. However, research shows that ingesting safely made activated charcoal juice can be beneficial to your health.

What Is Activated Charcoal?
To be clear, activated charcoal is not the same as what you throw on your barbecue grill and light on fire. It’s considered safe by the Food and Drug Administration. At one point, it was considered a universal antidote to help with drug overdoses and to treat poisonings.
Activated charcoal is developed with safe materials, such as bone char, coconut shells and olive pits. Activated charcoal works because it is heated to extremely high temperatures that strip any molecules it may have absorbed before being cooled and powdered.
Activated charcoal has a porous texture, much different from traditional charcoal. This allows it to trap toxins and chemicals in the gut and prevent free radicals from being absorbed by the body.
Benefits of Activated Charcoal
Now that you know activated charcoal is safe to drink, you may be wondering what it does and why we serve it at 3Natives.
If you are looking to refresh your system and detox, activated charcoal may be the ingredient you never knew you needed in your life.
Activated charcoal has a negative electric charge. This allows it to attract toxins and harmful chemicals, moving them out of the body quicker. It also has excellent anti-aging benefits.
Consuming activated charcoal regularly may help you:
- reduce stomach discomfort
- get clearer skin
- improve your kidney health
- help with intestinal gas
- get relief from acute poisonings
- ward off nasty hangovers
