Bentonite clay is an organic, geological clay, derived from volcanic ash, which possesses a strong, natural, negative ionic charge. For this reason, bentonite clay is able to magnetically attract substances that have a positive charge, including heavy metals, toxins, bacteria and environmental contaminates, binding them to the clay, and then eliminating them from the system.
I’ve used bentonite clay personally for about seventeen years, as well as professionally recommending it to patients for a little more than a decade now.
Here are the top 10 benefits to using bentonite clay to detoxify your body:
1. Because of its ability to draw-out toxins, bentonite clay helps promote healthier skin, and can help the body to heal from conditions such as eczema, acne, insect bites, and even help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
2. Bentonite clay absorbs toxins before they enter the bloodstream. This is a very important function, insofar as it relieves your liver and kidneys from having to filter out as many toxins, given that the average person absorbs more that 100 toxic ingredients (mostly through the skin) every morning, before 9 AM.
3. In addition to helping reduce the appearance of cellulite, studies have demonstrated that bentonite clay helps create a healthier (alkaline) environment in the body so it breaks down fat, nutrients, and sugar more effectively.
4. Bentonite clay helps to cleanse the colon naturally. This is due to the its ability to remove toxins and absorb large quantities of liquid.
5. Bentonite clay supports the body’s ability to rebuild and repair cellular damage.
6. Bentonite clay assists in restoring the body’s healthy pH levels. Since clay is homeostatic, it is a catalyst to aid in bringing the body back to a balanced state.
7. By reducing the strain on the live, bentonite clay can help the body naturally eliminate allergies. Since allergies are triggered by the release of histamines, reducing the strain on the liver (caused by having to filter out all the toxins in the bloodstream), bentonite clay allows the liver to once again begin producing the necessary antihistamines, which prevent allergic reactions.
8. Bentonite clay can help balance bacteria in the digestive tract, while strengthening the immune system. Bentonite clay improves digestion, as a result a healthy working digestive tract absorbs nutrients more efficiently (which helps strengthen the immune system).
9. Bentonite clay helps rid the body of mercury and lead.
10. Bentonite clay helps with digestive disturbances, including acid reflux, constipation, bloating, gas, etc. (Kaolin clay was common ingredient in medicines like Maalox and Rolaids for years).
Just a single tablespoon of organic calcium bentonite clay (like the source we exclusively use with patients, clients and in our own homes, which is Clay Vitality Detox Powder from goDésana) supplies the following mineral array (click to enlarge):
Pure bentonite clay has many practical applications, and because of its powerful natural properties, it has been referred to as “healing clay” thoughout the ages. Clay can be used both internally and externally, but it has to be the right type of clay to be both safe and effective. We only recommend the use of Clay Vitality Detox Powder for both internal and external uses (or Clay Vitality Detox Mud for external use).
While it is legally required that we disclose that we are independent distributors, associated with goDésana, it should also be noted that we have been using their bentonite clay exclusively for five years, prior to our association, simply because IT WORKS.
One Last Powerful Benefit of Bentonite Clay
I recommend adding bentonite clay to any tap water you may be drinking, in addition to adding 20 drops of beCalm Magnesium biomineral formula, to help eliminate flouride in your drinking water. (I actually advise not drinking tap water, but if you must, this can be a helpful tip!)
Studies show that this could be the most effective means of deflouridation of our drinking water. (See:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20462694)
