I listen to Bulletproof podcasts and I have heard plenty about the miracles of activated charcoal. The first time I heard about charcoal as a detoxifier was in regards to water purification filters. Apparently certain substances tend to attach themselves to the charcoal and in this way the water was considerably cleaner. Now, I never thought that one could simply swallow a charcoal capsule and detoxify. But, after testing the Upgraded Coconut Charcoal I can say that I noticed some incredible effects.

The capsules contain very fine smooth charcoal. Make sure to drink plenty of water or you can burp charcoal!
On Fridays I often buy a bag of delicious beef jerky. The strong spices of black pepper and salt make the beef super tasty! I really love beef jerky! But eating this is not the healthiest. Since switching to a Bulletproof-like diet I can now notice the effects of some foods on my body. The black pepper in the jerky, I believe, contributes to morning baggy/puffy eyes. Every time I consume beef jerky, and even tomato-based salsa, I have baggy eyes after a night of rest. Sometimes it feels like I'm struggling to open my eyes because the bags are quite large! After an hour or so the baggy eyes go away. When I eat only Bulletproof foods I don't get those baggy eyes. Now, I love to have beef jerky and it would hate if I had to stop eating them due to the baggy eyes. The solution, that I found, is the Upgraded Coconut Charcoal. Taking two capsules before eating the jerky gets rid of the morning baggy eyes every time. I don't know how it does it, but it does.
When I'm walking around and I notice people with baggy eyes I just want to let them know about my experience with the Upgraded Coconut Charcoal. While $30 is not cheap, and I wish the price was less than that, I have to say that overall I'm satisfied with the product. When I run out I'll order the same or similar products.
Note: The salt in the jerky is not the contributor to baggy eyes. I can say this because I eat salt with most foods already.
