Charcoal in toothpaste???

    Charcoal seems to be the current "it" ingredient on Social Media. These charcoal products in food, beauty and health products tout supposed health benefits.
    The latest issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association published a literature review of toothpastes with charcoal as an ingredient. They found insufficient evidence to support the efficacy claims of charcoal products. None of these products have the ADA Seal of Approval.
     More studies need to be done regarding any harm from the use of charcoal internally.           MouthHealthy.org provides additional information on teeth whitening, including natural teeth whitening.
