Bentonite Clay provides many excellent natural healing heath benefits for people and pets. Bentonite Clay aka montmorillonite or sodium Bentonite has powerful drawing and healing properties. Bentonite can be applied topically (compress or poultice) to skin and wounds or taken orally to draw toxins and impurities out of the body quickly. Bentonite Clay removes poisons (bacterial poisoning, salmonella, etc.) and intestinal parasites out of the intestinal tract while alkalizing the body.
Bentonite Clay binds herbicides and other potentially harmful substances by adsorbent action so they do not remain in the body. It cleanses the colon and aids constipation and diarrhea, as well as intestinal issues, including ulcers. Bentonite clay works well for irritable bowel syndrome.
Bentonite Clay is excellent to rejuvenate and cleanse the skin. Topical applications are helpful for acne, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, wound healing, and help draw poison from ant, bee, wasp, and similar bug stings and bites. This helps reduce inflammation, irritation, itching, and swelling and is excellent applied to hot spots.
