Bentonite Clay for Inner Health
Bentonite clay is a form of montmorillonite, named after Fort Benton, Wyoming, where it was first discover in America. Montmorillonite is the sodium salt of an aluminum silicate, containing 4 times the silicon dioxide of bentonite and is also more hydrated, and those that describe the two as being equivalent are wrong.
It had been used for centuries, if not millennia, by Native Americans for a number of purposes, including medicinal ones where it helped with digestive issues such as constipation. In fact, bentonite has historically been used worldwide by ancient Egyptians, Mesopotamians, Africans and Australians to beautify their skin and sort out gastroenteric problems.
It has been found an effective remedy for many of the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, and also Crohn's disease. Because it swells up into a soft sponge, bentonite can be used in treating both constipation and diarrhea - an unusual combination of properties! That sponge is also electrically charged through its ionic state, and also adsorbs toxins, such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic by electrical attraction. It is capable of absorbing herbicides, pesticides and pathogenic viruses in addition to its antibacterial properties. If your bowels are acting up, then a tablespoonful of bentonite in water or fruit juice should deal with it.

Purity BENEFITS: Great Plains® Bentonite provides strong
detoxification in the digestive tract, with the ability to bind
herbicides, viruses and other potentially harmful substances by
adsorbent action. Great Plains Bentonite is specially formulated
to provide the maximum benefits of bentonite. Bentonite's
mechanism of action is physical, due to its colloidal structure
and charged particles, which allow it to bind with toxins in the
stomach, small intestine and colon. It is not digested, nor is
it absorbed into the bloodstream. Since toxins are bound to the
bentonite, they are excreted from the body when the bentonite is
eliminated through bowel movements.* Bentonite (also known
as montmorillonite) is a natural clay mineral of volcanic
origin, created from volcanic ash deposits that are millions of
years old. Some of the largest - and highest quality - deposits
of bentonite occur in the Great Plains area of the United
States. Bentonite is made of microscopic rectangular clay
platelets, that when properly hydrated in water form a porous
"house of cards" structure with an enormous surface area.
Great Plains Bentonite has maximum activity through special
selection and processing to ensure an enhanced surface area and
optimum adsorption. Studies have shown that maximum binding and
removal of toxins occurs only with the rare naturally occurring
sodium ion form of bentonite containing a specific range of
exchangeable sodium ions. Using advanced processing methods, the
special bentonite used in Great Plains has a huge surface area
up to 960 square yards per tablespoon serving. To put that in
perspective, a quart bottle of Great Plains Bentonite contains
over 12 football fields of surface area! Great Plains
Bentonite has maximum purity. There are many different grades of
bentonite, primarily designed for industrial uses. Yerba Prima
uses only USP/NF pharmaceutical grade bentonite that has been
through a natural four-step purification process. This not only
ensures that the bentonite is ultra-pure, but also contributes
to the light color and strong activity of Great Plains
Bentonite. Bentonite has an unusual property you will notice
when you open the bottle. After complete hydration, it becomes
very thick and viscous when it sits for a while. If shaken or
stirred, the bentonite can be poured, which is why the
instructions say "Shake well before using." It will become thick
once again if allowed to sit undisturbed. Yerba Prima gives
consumers a choice of pint or quart bottles. The pint bottle is
shatter resistant amber PET plastic, and the quart bottle is
amber glass. SUGGESTED ADULT USE: Shake well before using.
For daily use, take 1 tablespoonful with liquid once or twice a
day on an empty stomach. For short term use, up to one week,
take 1 tablespoonful with liquid every two hours. Drink
additional fluid during the day. For serious conditions,
consult a health professional before use. In case of intestinal
discomfort during use, reduce amount used or discontinue usage.
