My name is Kali and I'm the founder and Director of Guide To Organics, and avid researcher of all things health. It’s my vision to create simple hacks for a healthier life and share my knowledge with you.

Healthy Hacks was born because of that finely powdered and very messy black stuff… yes that would be activated charcoal!

I was listening to a health summit earlier this year where they brought up all some of the amazing benefits for your health such as longevity and anti-ageing. It piqued my interest and I was curious about trying some. Being a person who is highly conscious about what I put into my body I, of course, started to do some research.

I began to contact companies to find out details and specifications for their products and quickly found myself coming up against many brick walls. Companies just weren’t forthcoming about what they were selling and saying to people.

I came to realise there were indeed differences in the charcoals being sold in Australia but at that point, I still didn’t know which one to use. I was becoming confused and frustrated at the lack of transparency.

Finally, I got lucky. I found a terrific supplier who explained to me the differences in the grades.

He explained that when he supplies businesses with the higher grade of charcoal he can provide them with a certificate to prove it’s guaranteed for human consumption, but with the lower grade he can’t. And, of course, the lower grade is much cheaper - like half the price!

Earlier this year I was listening to a health summit where they brought up the benefits of activated charcoal for longevity and anti-ageing. It piqued my interest and I was curious about trying some. Being a person who is highly conscious about what I put into my body I, of course, started to do some research.

I began to contact companies to find out details and specifications for their products and soon found myself coming up against numerous brick walls. Companies just weren’t forthcoming about what they were selling and saying to people.

I came to realise there were indeed differences in the charcoals being sold in Australia but at that point, I still didn’t know what that meant OR which charcoal was safe to use. I was becoming confused and frustrated at the lack of transparency.

Finally, I got lucky. I found a terrific supplier who explained to me the differences in the grades.

He explained that when he supplies businesses with the higher grade of charcoal that is safe for human consumption, he can provide them with a certificate of guarantee, but with the much cheaper, lower grade he can’t.

The higher-grade, ingestible charcoal has been through a process to reduce the ash content and inorganics like copper and arsenic - not exactly something I want to be swallowing.

It has also been more thoroughly pulverised, resulting in a more desirable, higher surface area. This surface area increases the ability of the charcoal to adsorb* toxins, especially in an emergency such as a poisoning or overdose.

Armed with this knowledge, I went back to the companies who I knew were selling the lower grade of charcoal and asked them for accountability and transparency in their claims. I wanted to see certificates guaranteeing their products were safe for human consumption. After all, a lot of unsuspecting people were purchasing and consuming their charcoal!

Perhaps predictably, they couldn’t. Because they weren’t buying or selling the right grade.

That journey led me to ask the question, “How many people are unknowingly ingesting low quality charcoal?” then, ultimately, to the launch of ‘Healthy Hacks - Activated Charcoal’. I wanted to get the right grade onto the shelves of health food stores and into peoples’ homes.

With much love,
Kali
