1. Losing Weight
A study by the Journal of Applied Nutrition found that the women who were given powdered activated carbon lost a substantial amount of weight after six weeks of taking a teaspoon of this substance before meals.
According to Dr. Mark Hyman, the author of “The Blood Sugar Solution,” this substance helps increase the body’s metabolism. So, if you’ve been eating more than your recommended portion size and are trying to lose weight, this substance can be used as an effective tool.
