What is Bentonite Clay?

Bentonite clay is a clay that is mined from the earth.  It is composed of aged volcanic ash.  Bentonite should not be pure white.  I find it to be gray or greenish in color.

It has been found that bentonite clay has a strong negative electromagnetic charge.  When bentonite clay is activated by water it acts like a magnet in and ON our bodies by pulling metals, toxins, impurities, and chemicals to it.  Bentonite clay also provides vital minerals to our body.  For these reasons I also use it in my squeezable remineralizing toothpaste.

You can purchase bentonite clay locally or online.
