Activated charcoal probably isn't on your usual grocery list, but you're likely using it and don't even know it. It's in a lot of water and air filters, as it works to draw out toxins by trapping chemicals. In our new JRINK: Black Magic, we've ground it up fine so that it adds a tasteless and detoxifying property to the juice.

Late pregnancy may cause an uncomfortable bile flow problem for some women, which can be treated with activated charcoal, thanks to its' detoxifying properties.
5. It's in BLACK MAGIC.
The sultry, mysterious black hue gives way to a refreshing grape flavor that finishes with a kick of citrus. One of our regulars called it an "out of body experience." No, seriously. We only add a touch for color and don't worry, it's not overpowering nor added in large quantity but.
One side note: if you're taking any side pills or vitamins, skip the charcoal.
