Bentonite clay is composed of aged volcanic ash found in different parts of the world and has been used in treating medical conditions since earliest recorded history. Bentonite clay can be found all over the world, however, the largest and most popular deposits known are located near Fort Benton, Wyoming. Thus the name Bentonite clay. Bentonite clay acts as a detoxing agent used internally because of its negative charged molecules, which seems to enhance its adsorptive properties. It’s able to pass through the intestinal tract and attract the toxins, harmful bacteria, pesticides and parasites which are positively charged. When they are in contact with each other, they swap ions and are bound together and the toxic molecule is absorbed by the clay molecule then flushed out of the body. Bentonite clay is typically used for cleansing the body of toxic metals, compounds that may compromise the health of the body over time. The most damaging toxic metals are mercury, cadmium, lead, and benzene, compounds contained in unnatural and processed foods (especially those with high fructose corn syrup), drinking water, building materials, even the air we breathe. Bentonite clay is powerful and effective. The clay can be used as a facial mask by mixing 1 tablespoon of bentonite clay with 1 tablespoon of water.
