What is Bentonite Clay?
Our Bentonite Clay comes from Alabama, from the purest Bentonite Clay mine ever discovered. It is free from Aluminum, Lead, Mercury, and other heavy metals. It is so pure that it is used to filter and purify water in the ponds used to raise baby Koi fish.
Also know an Calcium Montmorillonite, it is derived from ancient volcanic ash deposits. Bentonite Clay contains 71 trace minerals such as Ruthenium, Tellurium, and Thullium. Trace minerals enable the body to absorb nutrients. Bentonite Clay minerals are derived from an ancient sea bed formation. According to geologists, clay formed when a layer of volcanic ash fell into what was, over 30 million years ago, a shallow inland sea. As the ash filtered through the sea water, it collected pure minerals, forming a layer of highly mineralized clay.
How does Bentonite Clay Remove Toxins and Heavy Metals?
Bentonite Clay is made of a great number of tiny platelets, with negative electrical charges on their flat surfaces, and positive charges on their edges. Toxins and heavy metals zre negatively charged, causing the clay to bind with them like a magnet to metal shavings. Once hydrated, (combined with water) it has enormous surface area and is stretched open like a highly porous sponge. The toxins are drawn into these spaces by electrical attraction, and carried out through he intestinal tract. It then attracts and binds to pesticides, heavy metals, pathogenic viruses, some parasites, aflatoxin (mold), and herbicides such as Roundup and Paraquat. Bentonite clay is known as ‘living’ clay as it consists of minerals that enhance the production of enzymes in all living organisms.
