‘Healthy’ Charcoal Latte May Actually Have Negative Health Effects

Charcoal latte is the latest trendy drink, and its black or gray color makes it particularly photogenic. It’s also marketed as a healthy drink that acts as an anti-inflammatory and may be able to treat gastrointestinal issues. Some also say charcoal lattes can help treat hangovers and are good for detoxing.

However, some medical professionals are warning against drinking charcoal lattes. While activated charcoal is used to help treat drug overdoses and poisoning by removing toxins from the gut, it can also remove beneficial nutrients and medications. Some experts even go so far as to say that people who are on medication should not drink charcoal lattes as they can be “detrimental to health and well-being,” reports MetroFull Story
