White Binchotan Charcoal loves adsorbing things!
What is adsorption you ask? Adsorption is different than Absorption in that molecules are drawn to the surface rather than being absorbed into it. In adsorption, the toxic chemicals are attracted to and bind to the surface of the charcoal, effectively removing toxins, poisons, harmful chemicals as well as unwanted gases.
So how does Binchotan Charcoal work to purify water?
The surface of Binchotan Charcoal is made up of macro and micro pores which allow the charcoal to attract and adsorb a range of unwanted particles in water. These contaminant are then held in the surface of the carbon until you boil the charcoal (which then releases all the contaminants).
The water moves through trillions of micro cavities inside the White Charcoal, leaving your tap water purified, naturally softened, and ionized, while being enriched with vital minerals such as potassium and magnesium.
One of the beautiful things about white binchotan charcoal is it can be repurposed for other uses around the house, kitchen, bedroom, or garden.
Here are some other ways to get great use out of your binchotan charcoal stick.
Due to its highly porous surface, binchotan charcoal can filter your water to get rid of impurities and toxins. It also provides great health benefits by releasing minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron into the water. Each stick can last up to 4 months with proper maintenance.
Add 1-2 sticks to your bath water to allow the charcoal to emit far infrared rays that enhance blood circulation.
Air Purifier + Dehumidifier
Charcoal sticks work wonderfully to absorb odors - place them in your refrigerator, bathroom, or anywhere that needs to be deodorized. Additionally, they're also effective in absorbing dampess. Place sticks in cabinets, closets, or laundry rooms to reduce moisture and prevent mold.
Electromagnetic Wave Absorber:
Place charcoal sticks by electrical appliances such as televisions, microwaves, computers, and mobile phones to block the harmful electromagnetic waves that they emit.
