Medicinal Benefits of Bamboo Charcoal
We believe that bamboo charcoals have more than 400 kinds of minerals and hundreds of medicinal benefits and effects for our health.
Simply, I can say that charcoals have moisture removal and humidification function.
If you use an electron microscope, you'll see infinite numbers of extremely small micron-sized holes in the charcoal. This is the porosity. Because of that, 1 gram or just one pinch of charcoal has a surface area that reaches approximately 300 square meters (3000 square feet).
Therefore, water and air can pass easily. Furthermore, various impurities or foreign matter will be absorbed on the wide surface area of the charcoal. When air passes, and if humidity is high, the charcoal will absorb the moisture, and air will be converted to dry. If the air is too dry, then the charcoal will discharge its moisture adjusting the humidity in the air.
Through the microscopic-sized holes, charcoals will absorb harmful matters including bad smell particles simultaneously.
Trees and shrubs grew by sucking up necessary nutrition such as minerals from the ground. Because of that, when trees and shrubs are made into charcoal, these carbonated and oxidized minerals can be easily dissolved in water. Therefore, if the charcoal is submerged in water, the minerals which are trapped in the charcoal will start dissolving. This will change the water to mineral water.
Charcoal flame produces infrared rays not visible with our eyes. The place it hit will become warm regardless of air temperature. This warmth promotes proper blood circulation and renewal. Fish, meat, and vegetables will taste better and other nutrients will be produced.
Charcoals generate negative ions. Negative ions begin to work in the parasympathetic nervous system, which relaxes the mind and body.
The above-mentioned effects are just a few of several benefits you can obtain from charcoals. During the process of charcoal making, you can have more products for health and good living.
Bamboo Charcoal Vinegar
Bamboo charcoal vinegar is extracted when making charcoal and is used for hundreds of treatment on almost all aspects. During the charcoal making process, a lot of smoke comes out from the chimney. When the chimney cools down, condensation occurs and the smoke will turn to a thick black liquid. This liquid is called bamboo charcoal vinegar. We believe that this liquid contains 400 kinds of chemical elements and can be applied in many purposes such as cosmetics, insecticides, deodorants, food processing, and agriculture.
All these benefits were found since charcoal making started thousands of years ago in Japan.
