Do you want to know how charcoal removes toxins out of the body? It simply attaches itself to them which in turn get carries out of your system through the elimination process.
However, as helpful as charcoal might be for certain health issues, be aware because it can interfere with certain medications. Because of this it is best for you to check with your doctor before deciding to take some.
It is a simple recipe that requires several ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
- One to two activated charcoal capsules
- Lemon Juice ( 1 lemon )
- Maple syrup or stevia
First, cut the lemon in half and use a juicer to squeeze the juice out. You need to take out any seeds which may have fallen in. Add the juice to a 16 oz glass.
Be sure to check the dosage on the container or bottle of activated charcoal before breaking open one to two capsules. Add them to the lemon juice and stir well in order to mix up these two ingredients.
Next, fill the glass with water and add some ice cubes. Adding a sweetener, like a few drops of stevia it’s optional.
If you want to decorate the drink you can add a slice of lemon.
That’s it! Enjoy this delicious and refreshing beverage.
One more piece of advice: It’s recommended to drink large quantities of water if you consume activated charcoal. That’s why it’s better to add the charcoal to a water drink instead of just taking the capsules.
In this way you’re making sure that you are drinking enough water so that there is a good circulation of charcoal in your body. Since the activated charcoal has no taste, adding it to lemonade is 10x more delicious.
