You know the deal, once a week we get to make our lead broker and owner of the Nazar Kalayji Group try something new. This week Nazar got a bit of a break because his challenge was to try an activated charcoal drink. We stopped by our local nékter down the street to pick up an activated charcoal lemonade for him to taste.
Why has everyone been raving about this drink? Or more importantly, what exactly is activated charcoal?
Activated charcoal, in simple terms, is the process of using hot gasses to heat materials such as bamboo, wood, coconut husk, and coal. When these materials are activated, they form internal pores making them absorbent. This absorbent feature helps trap toxins within our body allowing them to be flushed naturally so they are not reabsorbed into the body. This can be great for cholesterol, bloating, skin treatment, or even after a night of drinking. It doesn’t necessarily get rip of alcohol and hangovers, but it helps absorb the chemicals and artificial sugars from mixers. The list goes on about the different uses of charcoal, you can read more here.
Our office loves nékter Juice Bar located in Eastvale, Ca and it conveniently has a Charcoal Lemonade amongst their brightly colored pressed juices.
So we decided to give this unappealing pitch black drink a taste… well we made Nazar do it! Our #TrySomethingNewTuesday involved him drinking this bizarre looking drink. It obviously wasn’t bad at all and the health benefits definitely aid in the purpose of the drink. You can watch the full video here.
