Why is everyone talking about the benefits of activated charcoal?
Activated charcoal is incredibly porous and adsorbent, which means that material and debris are attracted and held in the pores of the charcoal powder. This amazing micro-porosity means that just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area of over 3,000 m2!
