Top 10 Health Benefits Of Bentonite Clay (#6 Is Simply Mind Blowing!)
If you are interested in one of the most inexpensive and naturally effective means of detoxifying the body, as well as the ability to heal different part of the body, then you will want to read this article about bentonite clay.
Bentonite is a type of clay is created from volcanic ash that has been broken down by water. This clay has a powerful negative ionic charge, which means that it attracts all substances with a positive ionic charge. Items that have a positive ionic charge are bacteria, toxins, and heavy metals such as mercury. Items with a positive ionic charge stick to bentonite clay much in the same way that two magnets will stick together. Since our bodies cannot absorb clay, the clay, along with the toxins it has absorbed, is removed from the body.
If you have ever looked at the oil in your car and realized that it was dirty and needed changing, you understand the same way our bodies need to be “cleansed” of the toxins they absorb. Bentonite clay is one of the best ways to do exactly this. When mixed with water, this clay expands like a huge, porous sponge, absorbing toxins that are drawn to its negative charge. The active ingredient in bentonite clay is hydrated aluminum silicate. It also has healthy levels of iron, magnesium, silica, and calcium. It is these ingredients that cause this type of clay to be called “healing” clay.
Because this clay has a type of electrical charge, never store it in a metal container or stir it with a metal spoon. Good quality bentonite clay is either cream or green in color. White bentonite clay should not be used as it is not true bentonite.
Bentonite clay has been used for thousands of years and although scientists are trying to play catch up and do more research, there is plenty of research available to prove that this is one of the best ways to remove toxins from the body. It also aids in supporting the immune system, the improvement of digestion, and much more.
