What Is The Benefits Of Bentonite Clay?
Hello and welcome to JADa Therapy
Today I am going to show you some of the amazing benefits of Bentonite Clay.
I love using bentonite clay and have found it a real game changer in many ways. I have been using bentonite clay for over five years now and I still have a lot more to learn about how truly amazing it is.
Bentonite clay has been used for centuries by many cultures for nutrients and to help the body get rid of toxins.
Even animals will instinctively eat dirt and clay to help remove poisons from their system when they are ill.
Today Bentonite clay and other clays are becoming once again more popular for internal and external detoxification and this is for very good reasons.
What is Bentonite Clay?
Bentonite clay is a make-up of aged volcanic ash which is also known as ‘Montmorillonite’. The name comes from one of the largest deposits of bentonite clay which is located in Fort Benton, Montana.
Bentonite clay is an odourless grey or cream in colour and a fine consistency. What I really like about it is that it is really easy to work with. When I am mixing it, it works well with my natural recipes.
Bentonite clay contains a high concentration of minerals such as:
It also absorbs and removes toxins, impurities, heavy metals and chemicals.
Bentonite clay is a common ingredient in many external detox and cleansing products such as:
- Mud masks
- Skin care products
- Detox baths
It is also used for internal use because of its amazing ability to have an alkalizing effect on the body when taken correctly. It is really good for bringing balance to the gut bacteria.
Word Of Warning When handling Bentonite Clay
It is important to note that when you are using bentonite clay, you do not let it come into contact with anything metal, because the clay will draw any impurities from it, making it less effective. Always use glass, wooded tools when handling it. If you do not have glass or wooden items then use plastic.
What Are The Benefits Of Bentonite Clay?
How does it work?
Bentonite clay is a really unique clay that as the ability to produce an electric charge when it is hydrated. When it comes into contact with fluid its electrical components change and it then carries a strong negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins.
The really cool thing is that when it comes into contact with a toxin, chemical, or heavy metal, the clay absorbs the toxin and then it releases its minerals for the body to use.
Bentonite clay also helps oxygen get into cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen, now that is amazing.
People using bentonite clay have benefited in so many ways such as;
- Acid reflux
- Improvement with skin conditions
- Allergy issues
- Oral Health
- Recovering from vomiting
- Recovering from diarrhoea
Bentonite Clay Can Remove Fluoride From Drinking Water
Research as shown that bentonite clay can effectively remove dangerous fluoride, which is often found in drinking water, which is linked to serious diseases such as:
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Brain damage
When bentonite clay is combined with magnesium it becomes very beneficial in purifying tap water, which is a really promising possibility for the future of a cost-effective way of purifying tap water.
The possibilities are endless with the uses and benefits of bentonite clay. As I mentioned early, I have been using it for over five years now and I am still learning more about how truly amazing it is.
