Unlike minerals and vitamins, aluminum does not do any good to our body. Many food manufacturers would say that a certain product does not contain harmful aluminum—but truth is, aluminum is neither safe nor beneficial to both humans and animals.
Aluminum is a naturally occurring metal that is difficult to destroy or decompose. Once it was introduced in our system, it accumulates in our brain, kidney, lungs, and other body tissues where it interferes with our nutrient absorption processes.
Individuals who come in contact with higher levels of of aluminum over a long period of time are at risk of developing mental illnesses. This is because aluminum—when absorbed by the body tissues—produces oxidative stress within the cells leading to various neurological diseases.
But don’t fret—we can 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.
