Charcoal Lemonade Recipe

Activated Charcoal Lemonade with Collagen Recipe

Our take on the activated charcoal lemonade with collagen recipe craze looks much cooler than the sludge-colored detox drinks everyone seems to be sipping lately. We froze our activated charcoal into ice cubes, creating a stark contrast when served in bright lemonade. When the ice starts to melt, it creates a cool-looking swirling effect as the charcoal mixes with the drink. To give it an extra boost, we mixed in Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate powder. Collagen helps keep joints flexible and skin supple but because it decreases with age, it’s important to replenish with collagen-rich foods or supplements. This powder from Great Lakes has been hydrolyzed so it won’t congeal and features a unique combination of amino acids that may be beneficial for bone and joint health.

Benefit of Charcoal:

 

Activated charcoal is a potent natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t reabsorb them. It’s made from a variety of sources, but when used for natural healing, it’s important to select activated charcoal made from coconut shells or other natural sources.

Charcoal is commonly used as a digestive aid due to its absorption qualities. In the digestive tract, Charcoal can provide some intestinal comfort by absorbing gas produced from a meal.
