Bentonite clay is a type of natural clay that is very fine and soft. When water is added, it makes a paste. Some people use this paste for medical or beauty purposes, like treating rashes and acne or putting it on their hair as a mask.
People have been using bentonite clay for thousands of years to get rid of oily skin and toxins in the body.
Bentonite clay is in a lot of skin care products, but some people also put it in their food or drinks to help with digestion or get rid of toxins in their bodies.
A lot of research has been done on the health benefits of bentonite clay, but most of it has been done on animals or cells. Before scientists can know what the real benefits and risks of bentonite clay are for people, they need to do more research.
In this article, we'll look at the research behind 11 possible health benefits and risks of bentonite clay.
Bentonite clay absorbs, which means it pulls things like dirt from your skin to itself. It also takes in a lot of water by absorbing it. It is used to make face masks and makes pet litter stick together.
Bentonite is able to exchange a lot of ions. That means that ions with a positive charge can stick to clay, which has a negative charge. Those are minerals like magnesium, sodium, and potassium. Aluminum and silica are also found in bentonite.
◉ Removing toxins from the body - A toxin called aflatoxin B1 that comes from some types of mold was made less dangerous by bentonite clay. When chicks got a concentrated bentonite clay product, it made them sick less than when they didn't get the clay.
◉ Bentonite Clay for internal use - When Bentonite Clay is eaten, it gives the body nutrients like Calcium, Magnesium, Silica, Sodium, Copper, Iron, and Potassium that help replenish vitamins and minerals and make the body more alkaline. It can help with digestive problems like constipation, IBS, and nausea by getting rid of toxins, chemicals, impurities, and heavy metals from the gut.
A daily Bentonite Clay drink is an easy way to get all of these benefits. Just add Bentonite Clay powder that is safe for food to a glass of water, juice, or smoothie. We love adding one teaspoon of Earths Purities Drink, Body & Bath Bentonite Clay, which is made from food-grade clay, to our morning smoothies to make them more nutritious.
◉ Dental care - Bentonite Clay has many benefits for teeth, such as getting rid of plaque, remineralizing teeth, and cleaning the mouth well. Bentonite Clay is gentle, a little rough, and has a mild, pleasant taste. It can make your smile shine brighter than ever.
The My Magic Mud Whitening Toothpaste Peppermint with Bentonite Clay, food-grade Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal, Coconut Oil, and Diatomaceous Earth is our favorite Bentonite Clay toothpaste. What happened? A toothpaste that works well and doesn't hurt your teeth. It polishes and whitens teeth without damaging the enamel.
◉ Make a facial mask with bentonite clay - Bentonite clay tightens and tones the skin, and because it is absorbent, it can pull out toxins from deep inside. Mix 2-3 tablespoons of clay powder with the same amount of water or apple cider vinegar to make a face mask. Follow up with this facial serum and facial oil moisturizer that you can make yourself.
Put a thick but even layer of the mixture on the face and let it dry for about 10 to 15 minutes. It should be tight and have a slight tingling feeling. Run warm water over it and pat it dry. Use once or twice a week for the best results.
