Mercury is a naturally occuring heavy metal found in the earth’s crust. Despite its threat to our health, mercury has been continuously used in the production of many products we come in contact with every day. We cannot totally avoid heavy metal exposure—even healthy foods and prepackaged fresh goods can be hiding loads of mercury. According to reports, this toxic metal has been proven to be abundant in fish, a common fresh ingredient we considered healthy for us. Preventing heavy metal intoxication is easy by doing a holistic detox on a regular basis. Bentonite clay is one of the most inexpensive yet effective natural detox tools available for both humans and animals. Harvested in the deposits near Fort Benton, Wyoming, this aged-volcanic clay has been used as a detoxification tool and healing ingredient in treating medical conditions since pre-historic era. Up until now, many people—and even celebrities—are trying this nature’s wonder. Also known as the detoxifying clay, bentonite clay contains a strong negative charge that can flush out positively charged toxins, heavy metals, and other impurities in our body. Enriched with various trace elements such as magnesium, potassium, sodium, iodine, it can also be taken internally as a food supplement or mineral replacement for both humans and animals.
