Bentonite clay is a natural clay with a fine, soft texture. It forms a paste when mixed with water.
Bentonite clay is present in many skin products, and people have used bentonite clay to remove impurities on the skin, such as oils, and toxins from the body for thousands of years. but some people also add it to foods or drinks with the aim of relieving digestive issues or removing toxins from the body.
When a person uses it on the skin, bentonite clay may have the power to adsorb oils and bacteria. When they consume the clay, it may adsorb toxins or other unwanted substances from the digestive tract.
Bentonite clay contains natural minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron, which may provide additional benefits.
How to use :
Mix up to 1 teaspoon (tsp) of bentonite clay with 6–8 ounces (oz) of purified water and drink once per day.
Take bentonite clay at least 2 hours before or after taking any medications. Because it can adsorb other molecules, bentonite clay may bind to some medications and reduce their effectiveness.
