Dave Asprey of Bulletproof wrote an article called “Activated Charcoal: The Natural Way To Detox and Slow Down Aging.”
From the article:
As a biohacker and general health nerd, I quickly realized that it doesn’t matter how clean I eat — our environment is saturated with high levels of toxicity. This is even more of a problem when you have to eat out or are traveling. A commercial flight exposes you to high levels of toxic jet fuel and other airborne contaminants. And that’s not even counting the additives from the crappy airplane food.
Activated charcoal always saves the day when I overindulge on food or when I’m on long trips. And it does wonders when my kids suddenly drop into uncharacteristic fits of whining or tantrums, especially after snacks at a friend’s house. Activated charcoal always brings them back to normal within about 10 minutes. It’s amazing to watch.
Take activated charcoal when:
You eat out at restaurants or eat processed junk foods
You drink bad quality coffee
You’re drinking any alcohol
You feel moody or tired
You’re traveling, especially air travel (activated charcoal is part of my no-jetlag protocol)
