BENTONITE CLAY ESSENTIALS
Spas in Rome used Bentonite Clay over 4,500 years ago, as did Cleopatra and Gandhi as part of detoxification, naturopathic and beauty ritual. Bentonite Clay has not only been used medicinally for hundreds of years by indigenous cultures around the planet, but has, in recent years, been increasingly used by practitioners of alternative medicine as a simple but effective detoxifying and cleansing agent to help in preventing and alleviating various health problems. Now, these legendary beauty benefits can be yours with Bentonite Clay Essentials, a unique new line of liquid and solid detoxifying agents you can enjoy right at home.
Hydrated Bentonite Clay exfoliates and firms, resulting in visibly revitalized skin and a youthful complexion. It has the added benefit of working to draw deeply embedded impurities and toxins out of the skin's pores. Additionally, calcium bentonite clay has remarkable cleansing properties that work in conjunction with its high rate of absorption to provide effective solutions for acne, cellulite, sun damage, stretch marks, wrinkles, blemishes, and much more.
As a general internal detoxification and cleansing agent, Liquid Bentonite Clay scrapes and cleans the lining of the colon. As the colon becomes cleaner, its ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients increases, making the minerals even more bioavailable, thus giving more energy. The internal use of Liquid Bentonite clay is an excellent and simple way to do an effective cleanse. Among other benefits, it can reduce body odor, skin blemishes, and digestive track issues of all sorts.
What is Bentonite Clay?
Bentonite clay is a natural volcanic detoxifier. It is medicinal powdered clay which is also known as montmorillonite, which derives from deposits of weathered volcanic ash. Bentonite is one of the most effective natural intestinal detoxifying agents available and has been recognized as such for centuries by native peoples around the world. Technically, the clay first adsorbs toxins (heavy metals, free radicals, pesticides), attracting them to its extensive surface area where they adhere like flies to sticky paper; then it absorbs the toxins, taking them in the way a sponge mops up a kitchen counter mess. There is an electrical aspect to bentonite’s ability to bind and absorb toxins. The clay’s minerals are negatively charged while toxins tend to be positively charged; hence the clay’s attraction works like a magnet drawing metal shavings. But it’s even more involved than that. Once hydrated (combined with water), bentonite has an enormous surface area. A single quart bottle can represent a total surface area of 960 square yards or 12 American football fields. Bentonite is made of a great number of tiny platelets, with negative electrical charges on their flat surfaces and positive charges on their edges. Bentonite Clay Essentials contains 71 trace and ultra-trace minerals, including many that are probably unknown to most consumers, such as ruthenium, tellurium, and thulium. Trace minerals enable the body to absorb nutrients- they are the bonding agents in and between you and food.
How Can Bentonite Clay Be Used?
Bentonite is used in pharmaceuticals, medical and cosmetics markets. Bentonite is used as a filler in pharmaceutical drugs, and due to its absorption-adsorption capabilities, it allows paste formation. Bentonite is used in industrial protective creams, wet compresses, and anti-irritant lotions for eczema. In medicine, Bentonite is used as an antidote in heavy metal poisoning. Personal care products such as mud packs, baby powder, sunburn paint, and face creams may contain bentonite. Bentonite is not a mineral but a commercial name for montmorillonite, the active mineral in many medicinal clays and which comes from weathered volcanic ash. This name derives from Montmorillon, France, where the medicinal mineral was first identified. Sometimes mineralogists use the term smectite instead to describe the same substance. Bentonite minerals are derived from an ancient seabed formation in Utah; according to geologists, the clay formed when a layer of volcanic ash fell into what was, long ago, a shallow inland sea. As the ash filtered through the seawater, it collected pure minerals, forming a layer of highly mineralized clay. The best way to drink clay is on an empty stomach, or at least an hour before or after a meal or immediately before sleeping at night.
How is it manufactured?
Bentonite is usually quarry mined from deposits that can range anywhere from 100 feet to several thousand feet. This depends on the health and vitality of the land it is processed from and how far a producer will go to find the right clay with the proper characteristics and consistency. From here it is mined from the earth and brought out into the sun to remove excess water and moisture and, to make it easier to work with. After the initial drying begins the final transformation. It gets processed (ground) with huge hydraulic crushers and it then goes through the final process of micronization, or "fine granulating". This is usually done with the assistance of sophisticated and expensive granulators. Upon completion of this final process it gets inspected by a quality control team and is sent off for consumer use. This information has not been evaluated by the Food and drug Administration.
