Activated charcoal has been associated with a bunch of different health benefits such as detoxing, improving digestion issues, and kidney health.
Activated charcoal can be used as a natural teeth whitener, making a detoxing face mask, and can also be used for treatment for different types of poison consumption (in both humans and dogs!)
