Activated Charcoal Detox Drink Recipe

The world seems to be absolutely infatuated with activated charcoal. 

Activated charcoal has a variety of popular uses: It can be used to relieve bloating and gas, clean hair and skin, treat insect stings and mild infections, and even whiten teeth. 

Activated charcoal binds toxins. In fact, it works so well in cleansing your body that it’s is also used as a treatment to remove undigested poisons . When used in moderation, activated charcoal can help pull unwanted toxins out of your system

I use very often to help to treat poisoning and stomach discomfort for my family.

If you’ve never experienced charcoal in a drink fear not, it doesn’t taste like dirt. The charcoal is tasteless and seriously good for you

Here's how you can make the most of it.



8 cups water

3 lemons, juiced

4 tablespoons agave nectar or honey 

½ teaspoon activated charcoal

Adding 2 tbs Apple cider vinegar will balance blood sugar and fight GI distress. 

I do not add Apple Cider vinegar if i am making charcoal lemonade for  my kids. 


Don't forget to  drink lots of water when taking activated charcoal supplements, in order to avoid constipation.

Avoid taking medications or supplements at least one hour (or preferably longer) before you enjoy this recipe. Since activated charcoal is so potent, it may negate the benefits you would get from these treatments.
