A look at our Detox Drink, Charcoal Lemonade:
Charcoal has been used for years to detox the body from alcohol, harmful chemicals, and any toxins we might be taking in from processed food. Its cleansing qualities are used in everything from water filtration, face masks, and air purifiers.
Activated Charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in its millions of tiny little pores. When these toxins bind to the surface of the charcoal, they're removed from the digestive tract and bloodstream. Similarly, when charcoal is used in air or water filtration, the harmful elements are trapped in the charcoal, leaving the air/water cleaner and more purified!
Lemon juice, which we squeeze fresh in house, is a powerful liver detoxifier as well as being filled with vitamin C, B6, A, & E. It's also a source of minerals like potassium and magnesium.
Lemon juice has also been shown to help with weight loss goals. Remember that old "master cleanse"? Drinking lemon juice, cayenne and maple syrup to drop a bunch of weight? Well, no reason to go that extreme. Lemon juice contains pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to help lose weight. Also, Lemon juice in the morning will stimulate your digestive tract!
We lightly sweeten the lemonade with a little agave syrup. It's refreshing, delicious, and your body loves it!
