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.
