Activated charcoal is a toxin eliminator for the body, both in terms of supporting the liver and the digestive system. It assists in trapping chemicals as well as helping to reduce gas in the digestive tract. Combined with lemon this water is soothing and cleansing for the digestive system. Activated Charcoal is made from your foodie's favourite hero ingredient: the coconut. Coconut husks are burnt at high temperatures to remove all the oxygen and the resulting charcoal becomes "activated" when it combines with a gas or activating agent. What is produced is a highly absorbent material with millions of tiny pores that capture and bind to toxins in our bodies such as toxic heavy metals, chemicals and intestinal gasses. Put simply, it is extremely good at 'mopping up' anything unwanted in our gut - try it on a hangover, works wonders!
Organic activated charcoal
Charcoal is activated at high temperatures and is not absorbed by the body. It attracts toxins and carries them out of the body. A great substance for detoxing.
Agave is a natural sweetener made from the sap of the agave plant which is native to South America. It contains a mixture of glucose and fructose and has a wonderfully delicate and light flavour.
Our water is filtered twice through a carbonit activated carbon filter (filter fineness 0,45 µm).
Lemons contain a high amount of vitamin C, soluble fiber and plant compounds that give them a number of health benefits. Potentially, lemons may help with weight loss and provide protection against heart disease, kidney stone, digestive issues and more.
