Let’s start with the first ingredient: Activated Charcoal. In the last 20 years, Activated Charcoal developed ubiquitous use in the ER for overdoses and poisonings. Recently it has been shown to have a wide range of applications.

What is it? Activated charcoal, also commonly called activated carbon, is made from peat, coal, wood, coconut shell or petroleum. At Living Earth, we use activated charcoal made from coconut shells. Our Activated Charcoal is finer and more porous than other brands on the market.

How is charcoal “activated?” According to WebMD, “manufacturers heat common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop lots of internal spaces or “pores.” These pores help activated charcoal “trap” chemicals.” It is that trapping or adsorbent quality that makes Activated Charcoal particularly useful for your teeth.

You may be wondering, how does Activated Charcoal whiten teeth? The key here is the highly adsorbent nature of Activated Charcoal. According to a medical dictionary, adsorption is “the action of a substance in attracting and holding other materials or particles on its surface.” Similarly to how a chipmunk collects acorns and stashes them in its mouth, Activated Charcoal adheres to the surface stains of your teeth and inters them in its internal spaces or “pores.”

Activated Charcoal also has a deodorizing effect on the mouth. According to five reputable medical studies, Activated Charcoal has an odor reducing effect when used to dress wounds. These results suggest Activated Charcoal traps toxins and odors in the mouth in a similar way.

Activated Charcoal alone is an amazing substance for your teeth, but when used in combination with Bentonite Clay and a synergistic mix of anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-septic Organic Spices it reaches in a whole other level of benefits for your teeth and mouth.
