According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people exposed to heavy metals have significantly decreased over the last 100 years. However, in some parts of the world, exposure to heavy metals is still increasing—especially in less developed countries.
For years, heavy metals have been studied and proven to be a major threat to the health of any living organism. Individuals and animals who are exposed to these can experience several adverse health effects which include:
- Cramping and convulsions
- Difficulty in breathing
- Inability to perform activities that involve cognitive, motor, and language skills
- Digestive distress
- Aching joints
- Impaired blood sugar regulation
- Female reproductive problems
- Irregular menstruation
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.
