Domesticated pets have much lower defenses for heavy metal intoxication than those that are in the wild. While they can protect themselves from toxins, their natural defenses struggle to protect them when getting exposed with above-normal levels of toxic metals.
Aluminum is a concern for your cat and dog. Exposure to this heavy metal has no proven benefits and will just accumulate in your pet’s body in the long run. Reduce their exposure to these toxins by doing the following:
- Switch to products with less aluminum content. For example, purchase wet canned foods (contain 17mg of aluminum) instead of dry kibbled products (800mg of aluminum).
- Use stainless cooking pans, pots, and bowls for your pets instead of its aluminum counterparts.
- Abstain from vaccination whenever possible. Aluminum is more dangerous when injected than ingested.
We can also prevent heavy metal toxicity by doing a holistic detox on a regular basis. Bentonite clay is one of the most inexpensive yet effective natural detox tool 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.
