Bentonite clay provides strong detoxification in the digestive tract, with the ability to bind with unwanted substances by adsorbent action. Bentonite is specially formulated to provide the maximum benefits of bentonite. Bentonites mechanism of action is physical, due to its colloidal structure and charged particles of sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium ions, which allow it to bind with unwanted substances in the stomach, small intestine and colon. It is not digested, nor is it absorbed into the bloodstream. Since unwanted substances are bound to the bentonite, they are excreted from the body when the bentonite is eliminated through bowel movements.
Bentonite is made with the most powerful detoxifying bentonite, known technically as montmorillonite. It is a natural clay mineral of volcanic origin, created from volcanic ash deposits that are millions of years old. Some of the largest and highest quality deposits of bentonite occur in the Great Plains area of the United States. Bentonite is made of microscopic rectangular clay platelets, that when properly hydrated in water form a porous honeycomb or house of cards structure with an enormous surface area.
