Did you know that you can add activated charcoal to any drink order at Tonic Juicery?

If you're not already a firm believer in the black magic of activated charcoal, here's 3 reasons why you should try adding it to your next juice order. 

DETOXING

Activated charcoal is extremely porous with a negative electric charge. This means that it's really great at trapping all of the positively charged toxins, chemicals, and gasses floating around in your body.

Once the toxins, chemicals, and gasses are trapped in the millions of teensy tiny pores, they bond with the activated charcoal through a process called adsorption so your body doesn't have to absorb them. 

Good to know: You need to be consuming a lot of liquids if you plan to incorporate activated charcoal into your life. If your body doesn't have enough water on board, activated charcoal and cause dehydration. 

Totally Flavorless

Okay, so activated charcoal definitely will turn your juice BLACK. Dark Knight black. We promise you cannot taste it though and it's totally worth the spooky factor. 

Fact: Activated charcoal is not the same thing as the charcoal used in your grill. Grill charcoal is toxic and should not be eaten. Ever.
