Just Bein’ Honest with SCHIZANDU founder Dita Curgus

Oh my GAH! Am I really going to ingest this?” 

The black chalky like powder, fluttered in to my glass. I added a full helping of filtered water to the mix of what appears to be chimney soot and stirred with grace. An “oil spill” transformed my clean water in to a beverage of complete mystery… but what would it taste like?


I thought about plugging my nose, I held back… gulp. WOW, it was clean and very hydrating on all levels! This daring concoction I ingested was CHARCOAL! 



Schizandu Charcoal

NOTE: Be certain that it is finely blended together or else the remnants may be left at the bottom, a little too grainy in my opinion.

“Is it working yet?!” Honestly, I had no idea as to what I was to be feeling. I sipped while doing my morning meditations and yoga stretches. I felt as though I got a little more POWER within my breath and movements, a little more clarity. Was it this black stuff that I just drank?

Some of the uses are:

Teeth whitening, detoxification, supporting colon, candida, and parasite cleansing and digestive issues. : )

Most recently, I was lucky to interview the founder of the brand that provides this magical charcoal, just one of the products that is sourced.


I invite you to listen in and send along a comment {and please rate our podcast}.

Episode 31 : How the founder of Schizandu started saving lives with CHARCOAL

About this Podcast:

Dita Curgus, is the Founder of Schizandu Organics. She is on a mission to bring truly natural and exceptional products to people to help them cleanse, detoxify and nourish from the inside out and the outside in.

Born in Budapest, Hungary, to a home with no computers but all food “made from scratch” and put on the table from market-fresh or home-grown ingredients, she had participated in kitchen activities from very early on and started diving into books researching health-related topics at the age of 11.

Her insatiable interest in science, health and longevity, as well as airplanes, led her on a journey to study plants and their healing qualities, all things mechanical, flying, and even looking into the feasibility of putting fuel cells on the latest Boeing models.

While there was a time when she thought she would remain a pilot forever, after years of flying, she earned her Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering and her Master’s in Aerospace Engineering at UCLA while health-coaching in the evenings and on weekends. Even doing top secret work while an engineer for 5 years has left her with a feeling of void and she ended up getting a Health-Coaching Certificate to make her counseling official.

To be efficient in health-counseling she felt too limited to one-on-one sessions and smaller groups and she had a desire to reach a larger crowd to be able to help more people who suffered unnecessarily. Soon after leaving engineering altogether, in January 2016, she founded Schizandu Organics to make her dreams of helping more people and making a difference quicker a reality.

Today, she has reached 61,000+ customers across the globe and her products have been the choice of high-end health-food stores, restaurants all over the U.S. and beyond including Café Gratitude, Erewhon, L.A. Press, Menotti’s, Kippy’s Ice Cream, Rooted Juicery, Inscape Meditation Center, Wattle Café, Cathedral Coffee Shop, Bae Little Tokyo Ice Cream Shop, Narwhal’s Crafted Urban Ice, Hot 8 Yoga, Longevity Warehouse, The Shaman Shoppe , Coha Health Complimentary Medicine of Bermuda and many others.
