Bentonite is one of most popular clays and comes from naturally occurring volcanic ash sediments in the United States. Bentonite clay has been traditionally used to assist in mineral deficiencies, and to help bind toxins making them more soluble. Bentonite, also referred to as Montmorillonite, is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays. Bentonite can be used externally as a clay poultice, mud pack, or in skin care recipes. A good quality Bentonite should be a grey/cream color, and anything bordering “pure white” is suspect.
The line of Bentonite offered by Peach Foams is a “Calcium Bentonite,” which is quarry mined from naturally occurring deposits from Wyoming, U.S.A and is untreated. Bentonite clay is sedimentary clay composed of weathered and aged volcanic ash. Our Bentonite is NSF certified and manufactured to ANSI/NSF 60 standards. Bentonite is usually mined from deposits that can range anywhere from 100 feet to several thousand feet. After being mined from the earth, it is brought out into the sun to remove excess moisture and make it easier to work with. After the initial drying it gets processed (ground) with huge hydraulic crushers, and it then goes through the final process of micronization, or “fine granulating.” Upon completion of this final process it gets inspected by a quality control team and is sent off for consumer use.
Bentonite is very unusual in the fact that once it becomes hydrated, the electrical and molecular components of the clay rapidly change and produce an electrical charge. Bentonite is a swelling clay. When it becomes mixed with water it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. Indigenous cultures have used this clay internally for healing and wellness, our Bentonite Clay is sold for both external and internal use.
Bentonite clay has been used for centuries, and research is catching up and investigating its long term use. As a detox tool, bentonite clay may be helpful for reducing dietary and environmental toxins, supporting the immune system, and helping to remove fluoride from drinking water. Here are some of the researched benefits of bentonite clay.
One study found that bentonite clay, when combined with magnesium chloride, successfully reduced fluoride contained in fluoridated water. This may provide hope for the development of a natural filtration technique in the future, especially considering the rising concern of fluoride on human health.
Combats Dietary Toxins
Aflatoxin is a type of mold-like compound produced by organisms that thrive on a variety of different food crops. These toxic substances are detectable in peanut butter and some cooking oils, and research shows that they can interfere with the functioning of the immune system.  Aflatoxins may also contribute to possible liver damage, including liver cancer. Animal models have shown that bentonite clay may reduce health damage associated with the ingestion of dietary aflatoxin.
Toxic Metal Cleansing
Bentonite clay is typically used for cleansing the body of toxic metals, compounds that may degrade the health of the body over time. The most damaging toic metals are mercury, cadmium, lead, and benzene, compounds contained in some processed foods (especially those with high fructose corn syrup), drinking water, building materials, and the environment. One study has revealed that bentonite clay may be helpful for reducing these harmful metals.
Immune System Support
Bentonite clay has been shown to be protective against agents responsible for reducing the effectiveness of the immune system, and animal models show that bentonite clay may be a possible immune system strengthener. In one study, broiler chickens were fed food containing aflatoxins to test their immune response. Aflatoxins seemed to initiate unfavorable effects in the immune system, an action that can increase the animals’ predisposition to a number of diseases. Following the administering of bentonite clay, the aflatoxins’ immune-degrading effects were significantly suppressed.
Used on the Skin to Heal Eczema, Dermatitis & Psoriasis
When combined with water and left to dry on the skin as a clay mask, the clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores to extract these from the pours. This helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes, alleviate redness, and also to fight allergic reactions from irritating lotions or face washes, and even helps help poison ivy.
Thanks to the clay’s special ability to act as an antibiotic treatment when applied topically to the skin, the clay can help to calm skin infections and speed up healing time of wounds or eczema, even when prescription antibiotics were not able to help solve the problem.
