Vegan & 100% as is.
We know finding the perfect detox drink that is palatable is tough so we went ahead and made you a really delicious one.
Black Limonade is best consumed when you need a little bit of pep in your step so feel free to shake one up when you need. That's kind of what it's there for.
Made from Activated Coconut Charcoal (ACC), Black Limonade is an excellent all round detoxer, can help reduce a bloated tummy and can help prevent tomorrow’s hangover – we like to think we’ve got your back.
This refreshing way to enjoy Activated Coconut Charcoal is not only good for you - it looks pretty snazzy too.
The results of a good functioning diet can make you feel sexier than any outfit can. When everything is working well hair, skin and nails glow. A huge part of that is making sure the digestive system is detoxing the way it should be – it is hard to feel bubbly and be your best self when your body is working against it.
When you consume foreign substances such as alcohol, caffeine and other liver loaders, your liver prioritises converting those poisons to a manageable substance that the body can then get rid of. Regular consumption of ACC can help speed up the detoxification process giving your liver a chance to focus on the value adding part of its job such as making hair, skin and nails pretty as well as controlling emotions and hormones.
Getting technical, charcoal is a natural chelating agent, which means it can bond with other molecules to help trap and remove them from the body when ingested. Primarily a carbon substance, ACC is formed by charring organic material in absence of oxygen. One teaspoonful of ACC has a surface area of more than 10,000 square feet (slightly bigger than Katy Perry’s mansion), giving it unique absorption properties, which is why it is used medically for alcohol and mercury poisoning.
And then there are hangovers. Gross.
There is nothing great about spending the day in bed incapacitated as a former shell of who you were the night before. And then for those punters who get up anyways and try to make the most of it, fighting the nausea and urge to vom whilst out about can be overwhelming. Taking ACC before going to bed helps eliminate alcohol from the body giving you the best chance at waking up bright eyed and bushy tailed.
Basically, life is busy and fun and we want you to have your cake and eat it to.
YOU WILL NEED
1/4 teaspoon Ultra Fine Activated Coconut Charcoal
1 glass of water – can be still or get your schmancy sparkle on
1 Lime or it’s cousin le lemon
Ice - lots and lots of ice.
THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT
This drink can be consumed as much as you like - some peeps do it every couple of days but it is also effective as a three day cleanse or a once off detox. Drink before bed as a hangover preventative.
- Add Activated Coconut Charcoal and the juice of half the lemon to water to a glass jar.
- Shake until incorporated.
- Pour over ice in your favourite glass.
- Top with the rest of the lime.
Boring but helpful warning:
Err on the side of caution, this can get messy – but don’t worry - Activated Coconut Charcoal comes off most surfaces if you rinse it off right away.
To aid the detox process, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
If you are taking any other medicine, do not take it within 2 hours of the activated charcoal. Taking other medicines together with activated charcoal may prevent the other medicine from being absorbed by your body.
In case of emergency, before using this as a medicine, call a poison control center, your doctor, or an emergency room for advice.
