Dear Health Conscious Reader,
There’s a powerful substance every hospital in the country carries in their ER to treat poison victims.
It’s so potent that one gram of it – an amount the size of your fingernail – can absorb enough toxins to fill the square footage of four tennis courts.
I’m talking about activated charcoal.
It’s a form of carbon that’s been processed into a fine, black powder. It’s odorless, tasteless, and safe to consume. And it’s more readily available than you think.
You can take charcoal to wipe out decades of toxic heavy metals that may have been building up in your body. Harmful metals like arsenic, copper, mercury, and lead.
You’re exposed to these toxins every single day. They enter your body through the air you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat, and even through your skin.
Very few doctors realize how powerful this stuff is as a way to detox. In fact, many doctors fail to see the benefit of detoxification at all. Mainstream medicine often depicts detox believers as wacko, left-wing tree huggers who don’t know what they’re doing.
That’s a shame, because activated charcoal is the single best supplement for enhancing detoxification. And it could one day save your life.
An activated charcoal detox leaves you feeling like a new person – pumped up, recharged, and bursting with energy. As if you were suddenly 20 years younger.
You can find it at any health-food store. It’s relatively inexpensive and easy to take. In fact, because it’s a powder, you can take it just like you would your favorite protein drink.
I regularly use charcoal as part of my personal detox plan. And I recommend it to patients I see in my clinic.
It’s best to use a powder form, mixed into a liquid. Tablets or capsules take too long to absorb and release the activated charcoal. And the dose is usually too small to do the job.
Take 20-30 grams a day of powdered activated charcoal (in divided doses) mixed with water over a period of 1-2 weeks.
We’re currently testing a powdered charcoal drink mix that will be included in the Primal Force line of supplements. It’s not quite ready yet, but once it is, you’ll be the first to know.
In the meantime, you can look for activated charcoal powder in your local health-food store.
I recommend getting it in bulk sizes of one pound (454 grams) or more.
To Your Good Health,
Al Sears, MD
