For over 10,000 years, healers from Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western medicinal traditions have used activated charcoal to eliminate poisons and regulate intestinal health through the process of "adsorption" (as opposed to absorption), the adhesion of a thin layer of molecules to the surface of solid bodies or liquids with which they are in contact.
Activated charcoal is attained by burning a source of carbon such as wood (Willow Bark), debris, or coconut shells at high temperature, thus removing oxygen. The result is a highly adsorbent agent with millions of tiny pores that capture, bind, and remove poisons, heavy metals, chemicals, and intestinal gases which have thousands of times more weight than the charcoal itself. Just two grams of activated charcoal powder has about the same surface area as a football field. The porous surface has a negative electric charge, which in turn attracts positively charged toxins and gas for elimination.
Studies show activated charcoal prevents many cellular changes associated with aging, including compromised adrenal gland, liver and kidney function, thus slowing the brain's increasing sensitivity to toxins, encouraging better cognitive functioning.
