Activated charcoal can safely bind and eliminate anything with a positive electrical charge. That includes heavy metals like mercury… toxic chemicals like BPA and pesticides… and even mold toxins.
Plus, because activated charcoal binds to bile in your gut, it can also help you excrete dangerous fat-based toxins before they can be re-absorbed to keep on circulating through your body.
That means activated charcoal is more than powerful enough to handle any kind of toxin you’re likely to consume with a suspect meal or a bad cup of coffee…
And keeping activated charcoal in your first-aid kit or medicine cabinet could even save your life when every second counts (of course, it goes without saying that you should immediately seek medical attention if you think you’ve been poisoned).
