Charcoal has many benefits including the ability to pull toxins from the body.
Charcoal is very effective at detoxifying the body. It is the agent used in the Emergency Room for overdoses caused by drugs and alcohol. It can be used to help rid the GI system of unwanted toxins as well as pull toxins from the tissues.
Did you know it is also very effective at whitening the teeth? The same properties that make it effective at detoxifying the body make it effective at whitening the teeth.
Dave Asprey, Bulletproof Biohacker lists numerous ways to take advantage of the black porous surface to rid the body of toxins. He states:
How to Use It to Detox Your Body and Feel Noticeably Better
Because activated coconut charcoal is mainly used to remove toxins from the body, it is great to use for the following purposes:
- Take it when you eat out at restaurants or eat low quality foods like processed junk foods
- Take it with bad coffee – it won’t fix the problem, but it helps
- It is particularly helpful to take when drinking alcohol
- Take it if you suddenly feel moody or tired
- Opening a capsule on your toothbrush does amazing things for stained teeth
- Use during pregnancy to bind toxins
- Helpful for jet lag
It’s 100% natural and safe for use to whiten the teeth…. but just how does charcoal whiten your teeth?
Trina Felber, CEO of Primal Life Organics and Skincare Biohacker demonstrates how charcoal works and why it is so effective in the detoxification process and to whiten the teeth. Watch this video to understand HOW!
Dirty Mouth Toothpowder BLACK Peppermint and BLACK Spearmint both contain charcoal to help whiten your teeth. When charcoal is combined with clay, it is the perfect formulation for cleaning, remineralizing and whitening the teeth.
Dirty Mouth Toothpowder contains three different clays (bentonite, white kaolin and french green) because these clays contain the minerals your teeth need to remineralize and stay strong. For the Black formula, charcoal is added to whiten the teeth- but does not contain minerals therefore will not improve the structural integrity of your enamel.
