Is charcoal juice beneficial in weight loss?

Weight loss poses a big challenge, and many people follow fad diets and obnoxious things that trend in the market.

Not only they have a disastrous effect on our health in the  long run, but following them blindly is not advisable. One such new diet trending the ‘charcoal juice’ which is supposed to cleanse your body and rid it of toxins.

The New York post reported beauty blogger Annie Atkinson, who recently started having the gray juice, saying that the juice, which doesn’t exactly look appetizing and is made from activated charcoal and greens, really affects your skin.

Eric Helms, founder of Juice Generation, said that it’s one of the most popular products that they’ve ever introduced, and admits that the taste was a big challenge. It required months of testing to make its taste palatable. Activated charcoal is made from burnt organic matter, but Juice Generation uses coconut hulls that are processed to have a negative electrical charge, which allows it to bind to toxins in the body and help aid detoxification.

Beth Warren, a registered dietician-nutritionist based in Brooklyn, is less optimistic about the trend, and says adding charcoal to vegetable juice doesn’t make sense because the charcoal, not the drinker’s body, will absorb the juice’s nutrients.
