Clay has an amazing ability to help keep toxins from being absorbed into the body. When taken internally, the minerals that make up Bentonite clay work together to absorb heavy metals and other toxins in the gut. Even external use has benefits. Clay baths and topical application can also help with detox through clay’s strong drawing powers. Through a pulsing action, clay can actually draw out infections, gangrene, heavy metals, and toxins (2).
For me, I enjoy ingesting clay because it’s a natural way to boost my diet with minerals. It contains magnesium and approximately 67 other trace minerals. Especially because modern day soil is so depleted, your body will definitely thank you for giving it some mineral love.
