Resolved Question:

Is bentonite clay safe to consume as a general detox agent for the body? I see various products advertised and sold as a detoxifier.

Thanks for choosing

A lot of people use bentonite clay for loads of health benefits such as clenasing of the liver and colon, balancing the bacteria in your stomach, improving nutrient intake, and providing a stronger immune system. It also has reported evidences of prevention of food allergies. But i will also like to give you some additional information. A diet full of green leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, kale, turnip ( e.t.c) or having a vegetable juice can also act as a natural detoxifier in your body. So do consume more of green leafy vegetables from now on. You can use bentonite clay, however we don't recommend it right away to our patients. Its better to stick to a more conventional healthy diet.
