Indigo Herbs Bentonite Clay comes to you in an immaculate state and is of Premium Grade quality.
What makes Bentonite Clay unique? It is thought that because of the presence of Montmorillonite, a flat microscopic crystal flake with a very high negative ionic charge, Bentonite is able to absorb toxins from the skin extremely effectively. The negatively charged Montmorillonite acts like a vacuum pulling positively charged toxins like a magnet; the toxins then anchor to the microscopic Montmorillonite crystals to be withdrawn out of the body.
It can also be ingested either in drink form or by eating the clay. This has the twofold effect of drawing dangerous toxins from the body and of supplying an abundance of important minerals and can therefore be used as a nutritional supplement.
There are two types of Bentonite Clay sold today each with a special quality; these are either rich in sodium or calcium. It is generally thought that the difference between these two is that sodium Bentonite has greater detoxifying properties, whereas calcium Bentonite is thought to have a larger content of minerals. Because of continuity of supply, here at Indigo Herbs our batches of Bentonite sometimes differ between sodium and calcium rich Bentonite Clay. Each will perform with similar effectiveness but having a small edge over the other in regards to the above. Indigo Herbs Premium Grade Bentonite Clay has wonderfully powerful properties and we hope that you might benefit from its remarkable detoxifying effectiveness.
Bentonite Clay is a mined material that has many varied uses in a multitude of different industries from beauty products to reversing soil degradation in developing countries. This prehistoric material started being formed 120,000,000 years ago when the North American tectonic plate moved westwards and forced the edge of the pacific plate deep into the Earth's mantle. The subsequent volcanoes and swift westerly winds led to volcanic ash drifting into an inland sea which now is occupied by the central United States. The ash deposits mixed with sediment from eroding landforms and with a few million years of compression Bentonite Clay came into being.
