Food, water, and over the counter medications are some of the most common sources of aluminum. When this metal is absorbed by our body tissues, it slowly alters our cell communication and various cellular processes leading to brain degeneration and skeletal deformities.
While we cannot totally avoid heavy metal exposure, we can still try to reduce the risk of developing aluminum toxicity by doing the following:
- Use stainless steel kitchenware instead of those that are made from aluminum.
- Refrain from using aluminum foil when cooking or baking.
- Avoid drinking from soda cans.
- Check product label packaging to avoid products and over the counter medications containing aluminum.
- Reduce exposure to other heavy metals as these have a synergistic toxicity that can become more harmful when combined together.
- Take melatonin supplements to protect your body from aluminum toxicity.
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 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.
