Yes, it is black! It tastes like lemonade though!👌🏼
I often recommend activated charcoal as a binder for kids who are having a die-off reaction/ Herxheimer “herx” reaction from antibiotics. When a child starts on treatment, they may have a symptom flare including a rise in behavioural symptoms like OCD, anxiety, and oppositional behaviour. They may also have other inflammatory symptoms such as an escalation of tics, joint pain, headaches, urinary frequency, fever, and restless sleep/nightmares. Charcoal assists in detox by soaking up the bacterial toxins!
