By now you’ve probably heard that we all need to detox. The environment and the foods we eat are taking a toll on our body. A detox is meant to rid ourselves from the toxins we take in. Juices, pills, just about everything has been promoted to help us detox, but is this all hype?

The latest trend in detoxing is to use activated charcoal. Activated charcoal, if you’re unfamiliar with it, is a charcoal – typically made from peat, coal, wood, coconut shells or petroleum – which is heated in the presence of gas to make it porous. These pores allow the activated charcoal to trap chemicals. Common uses of activated charcoal are to treat people who have been poisoned, reduce gas and cholesterol, prevent hangovers and treat bile problems.
