Many products, even those that are touting to be organic and chemical free, contain toxic metals in them. From the food we eat, water we drink, and to the air we breathe, everything has been exposed to heavy metals.
Although heavy metals are naturally occurring substances, exposure to these pollutants (in larger amounts) can have long-term harmful effects to our body. Lower level exposure of certain metals such as arsenic can cause the following:
- Decreased production of red and white blood cells
- Abnormal heart rhythm
- Damage to blood vessels
- Sensation of “pins and needles” in hands and feet
Bentonite clay is one of the most inexpensive yet effective natural treatments available. 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 the body. Enriched with various trace elements such as magnesium, potassium, sodium, iodine, it can also be ingested and used as a food supplement or mineral replacement for both humans and animals.
