Charcoal, in your mouth? That's right! Activated charcoal toothpaste is where it's at!
For those of you unfamiliar with activated charcoal, it’s one of the world’s oldest detoxifying remedies. It has been used for thousands of years in Chinese Medicine and is even used in hospitals today to help patients that have ingested large amounts of toxins. Basically, activated charcoal is super super absorbant so it helps clean, detoxify and remove toxins from your body. Perfect for your teeth, right? Yup! The carbon in the toothpaste pulls toxins from your mouth and removes stains.
What I love about this toothpaste is that it’s free from all of the crap that you see in colgate, crest and most other major toothpaste brands, plus, it’s excellent for whitening teeth! It does look a little scary when you use it (see my husbands black teeth), but it’s just scrubbing away, making your teeth stronger, whiter and more beautiful! No joke, my teeth are already so much whiter from using this for just one week.
I've only tried the Twin Lotus brand which you can buy on Amazon. Have any of you tried charcoal toothpaste? And if so, which brand? Did you like it? Stay tuned for another post coming soon on activated charcoal pills. These might be your next hangover cure!
