Go “Mud” Yourself!! Yes, I really mean it!

Why should you make “mud” (aka detoxifying clay) a regular part of your daily supplement routine?

OK, it’s really not “mud” but in fact, a special, purified, detoxifying clay with many health benefits. Many people are unaware of the powerful impacts of high-quality calcium bentonite clay and its ability to detoxify a broad range of toxins by biochemically latching onto toxic substances and then safely carrying them out of the body.  

Wow! What can’t this type of clay do?  

Does it matter what type of bentonite clay it is? 

Of course, it does! Many clays are available as the more common form of clay as sodium bentonite – definitely not preferred. Here we are talking about calcium bentonite – a premier form (though more difficult to find) that is a high potency, detoxifying clay.  

Where does calcium bentonite clay come from?  

Calcium bentonite is a rare desert clay with excellent, proven detoxifying properties. It can be used for both internal and external use. It has been obtained from a deep sub-surface mine in the southwestern desert area of the U.S. which has been uniquely protected from leaching by the climate.  

This clay was created by an underwater ancient volcanic eruption that has been continually drenched with fresh water for over 43 million years. This clay deposit has been sealed away and untouched by the ravages of natural elements by a crust of zeolite minerals. 

Because its excellent adsorptive properties have not been compromised by outside air or groundwater contaminants, the highly charged, 100% pure calcium bentonite clay has significant drawing power that has been proven to be unsurpassed.  

How does it work?

Calcium bentonite has extremely strong absorptive and absorptive properties. That’s why it is especially effective for total body detoxification when taken internally. However, it can also be used for deep cleansing and clarifying of the skin by using external applications for many types of skin conditions (such as rashes, burns, and other external injuries). You cannot find a purer or more significantly effective clay from any other source in the world. 

Does the clay alkalinize the body?

Yes, it does! The pH of calcium bentonite is 9.7 (highly alkaline)*, and thus acts as an alkalinizing agent in the body. The body's pH level plays a critical role in its ability to remain healthy and resist attack. Tissues in the body that are poorly oxygenated, or devoid of oxygen, are acidic and prone to immune compromise.  

In contrast, healthy tissues are always alkaline; compromised tissues are always acid. Blood, lymph, and cerebral spinal fluid in the human body are all designed to be alkaline when in a healthy state. Since most health concerns begin to occur as the body’s pH falls into the acid range, it is essential to alkalize the body (as indicated by a preferred first-morning urine pH between 6.4 to 7.0) and to keep it alkaline on a regular, ongoing basis. 

What about detoxifying pesticides and glyphosate? 

Yes to both! Calcium bentonite clay has been studied for its ability to absorb and detoxify all four of these troublesome toxins: pesticides, aflatoxins, endotoxins, glyphosate, antibacterial and volatile organic compounds.  

The natural detoxification powers of this clay are due to the negative electrical charge on the outer surface of the clay micelles. When this negative charge meets the positive charges of toxins in the body, negative ions replace the positive ions (the toxins). This clay then acts like a sponge to pull unwanted toxins and encase them within the clay’s structure, so your body can safely eliminate them later on.   

OK, I’m in! How do I get started? 

Good choice! There really is no other substance that acts with such a full, detoxifying splendor as calcium bentonite clay!   

The next step is to select a pure clay source from a high-quality company with a long history of excellence and dedication to wellness. Make calcium bentonite clay a part of your daily nutritional regimen so you can achieve your own optimal health status.
