    You've probably seen it on Pinterest, Instagram and Youtube: it's the trendy black powder, the activated charcoal. Charcoal is normally made from coal, coconut shells or wood, and we say it's "activated" when it's superheated with steam or hot air at very high temperatures. This will increase the surface area of the charcoal, that makes it perfect to absorb materials in large quantities.

    Activated charcoal is a detoxifier - which means that it helps the body get rid of toxins and oxidants. It can also help your stomach can debloat by cleaning your intestines and colon.

    Activated charcoal has historically been used to filter water as well, since it can absorb a range of toxins, drugs, viruses, bacteria, fungus, and chemicals found in it. It also has medicinal, cosmetic and culinary uses.

    Today we want to share the Activated Charcoal Detox Smoothie recipe, featuring our Wild-Caught Marine Collagen. Don't worry, neither ingredient will add flavor to the drink!

    Before we jump into the recipe, let me tell you why you should use Marine Collagen.

    Why add Marine Collagen?

    Collagen is one of the most important bodily constituents, since it accounts for 1/3 of the entire protein supply of the human body. Adding an all-natural and bioavailable source of collagen to your diet will help to prevent the distribution of pathogenic substances and toxins.

    80% of your skin is composed of collagen, but unfortunately, at age 30 we start to lose over 1.5% of our natural collagen stores each year. By taking Marine Collagen daily though, elasticity and flexibility can improve significantly when you're consistent in taking it daily.

    Moreover, rich in Type 1 & 3 collagen, wild-caught cod marine collagenwill help to keep your bones, tendons, and joints healthy, while also supporting flexibility and lean muscle, as well as recover faster and restore the nutrients depleted during the exercise.



    1 mango
    1 zucchini
    1/2 lemon
    1 coconut (or the equivalent of 1 cup of all-natural coconut water)
    1 tsp of activated charcoal
    1 tbsp of raw chia seeds
    1 scoop of Wild-Caught Cod Marine Collagen
