Derived from volcanic ash mined in Wyoming and Montana, this food-grade Sodium Bentonite Clay is a naturally occurring element with a reputation as “the mineral with a thousand uses.” This Bentonite Clay is silica-based and is colloidal in nature, meaning the particles suspend in liquid without breaking down or dissolving, and therefore does not get digested. Mining practices are designed to keep out impurities. The clay is kiln-dried, milled, and screened to size. Bentonite Clay is often used to clarify beverages such as juices and wine.
Healers, estheticians, herbalists, and even nutritionists have cited Bentonite clay as a superfood for its detoxifying and healing properties used both topically and orally. It is thought to draw out impurities and bind with toxins because it has a strong negative electromagnetic charge. When activated by water, it acts like a magnet in and on our bodies, pulling metals and toxins to it.
The clay has a range of nutrients and is known to have an abundance of minerals. From the skin to the digestive system, bentonite clay's possible health benefits are numerous. Commonly used as a baby powder substitute and a toothpaste. If you choose to consume bentonite clay, be sure to do it only in small quantities and use clay sold by trusted merchants.
