Charcoal is used as humankind’s most gentle and perfect detoxifier. In a toxic world, tools of detoxification, such as Birch charcoal becomes more and more important.
For some people, activated charcoal products are too strong for daily use. Birch charcoal is more gentle on the digestive system than activated charcoal or Kohlbitr charcoal.
Birch charcoal is a normal edible charcoal, similar to what our ancestors would have consumed at the edge of a fire. Birch trees not only make good charcoal but also make for good mushrooms. Many species of medicinal mushrooms grow out of birch including Chaga!
The activation process for charcoal was invented around 1900 and typically uses super-heated steam to remove the last 10% of organic residues which can include sulfur and not-entirely-combusted or charcoaled organic materials.
“I love Birch charcoal, and I find it not as strong as Kohlbitr charcoal. If I run out of my own Kohlbitr supply, then I will switch to Birch charcoal. Consuming birch charcoal is an original ancient human experience. Birch charcoal is ideal for those with sensitive digestion, those who want to try a different type of charcoal and those who like to switch back and forth.” ~ David “Avocado” Wolfe
Charcoal adsorbs toxins, metabolic waste products and artificial chemicals that can damage the body. Charcoal has been found to be safe for all ages. Start slow as charcoal is a binder and excessive use (initially) may lead to constipation.
