Bentonite Powder 1lb
Bentonite Powder is a natural clay most commonly used as a facial mask to remove skin impurities, dirt, and excess oil. The powder contains high amounts of trace minerals, and has become popular at health spas for promoting healthy, youthful skin. Betonite Powder can also be used as a body mask, but should not be used on sensitive areas. This product helps you naturally detox. If you are sick of spending your hard-earned money on spa visits, this is a cheaper and safer option.
Since 2500 B.C., cleansing and beautifying clays have been used by many cultures for their many benefits to the skin, including the Egyptians, Germans, Romans, Greeks, and ancient tribes from Australia, and South, Central, and North America. Discover the ancient beautifying benefits for yourself today!
Bentonite is a volcanic ash, when processed into a very fine power and liquid suspension, acts toward toxic material as fly paper does with flies. The unique properties of bentonite were reported in the Medical Annals of the District of Columbia in June 61 by Frederic Damrau, M.D> who established that bentonite absorbs toxins, bacteria, and viruses both in laboratory dishes and in humans. Because bentonite, itself, is not absorbed, whatever it absorbs is removed in the feces. This includes miscellaneous intestinal poisons and toxins generated by Candida albicans.
This is an amazing mineral and it never goes bad!
You will not find better quality bentonite .
No other additives are required for bentonite to act as an antioxidant and to detoxify your body. Not even calcium.
Bentonite is historically known for its highly absorptive properties and its ability to draw out and bind heavy metals, drugs and other toxins from the body. This clay has been used for thousands of years as both an internal and external purification aid.
Bentonite occurs in the Big Horn basin, The Powder River Basin and along the western edge of the Black Hills of Wyoming, It's also known as western or sodium type bentonite. This type of bentonite is capable of absorbing 7 to 10 times its own weight in water, and swelling up to 18 times its dry volume. Because of this unique characteristic, Wyoming Bentonite is the standard against which all other bentonite in the world is measured.
Geologically Bentonite is volcanic ash that was deposited in sea water approximately 60 million years ago. This is a swelling-type sodium bentonite containing no more than 17 minerals. Don't be fooled by bentonite claiming to have 50 to 70 minerals. The extra mineral content is from the added calcium that is commonly used to dilute bentonite for commercial and industrial use.
Good high quality bentonite.
Bentonite is an absorbent aluminium phyllosilicate, in general, impure clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite. There are different types of bentonites, and their names depend on the dominant elements, such as potassium (K), sodium (Na), calcium (Ca), and aluminum (Al). As noted in several places in the geologic literature, there are some nomenclatorial problems with the classification of bentonite clays. Bentonite usually forms from weathering of volcanic ash, most often in the presence of water. However, the term bentonite, as well as a similar clay called tonstein, has been used for clay beds of uncertain origin. For industrial purposes, two main classes of bentonite exist: sodium and calcium bentonite. In stratigraphy and tephrochronology, completely devitrified (weathered volcanic glass) ash-fall beds are commonly referred to as K-bentonites when the dominant clay species is illite. Other common clay species, and sometimes dominant, are montmorillonite and kaolinite. Kaolinite-dominated clays are commonly referred to as tonsteins and are typically associated with coal.
The earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March 2011 and left the Fukushima power plant damaged and leaking radiation into the environment seems to have faded into the past, but the dangers to the environment and human health are far from over, with the latest leak of highly radioactive water being described by the plant operators, TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Co), as a serious radiation incident.
TEPCO finally admitted in July that radioactive water has been leaking from the plant and is now taking steps to try to prevent any future leaks from ending up in the Pacific Ocean. But the latest leak is the largest yet with a massive 300 tonnes of highly radioactive water escaping from a damaged tank and creating fears that it will be washed from the land with rainwater into the sea.
The obvious question for those who might be in danger of being exposed to this leaked radiation is how do we protect ourselves? One way is to use bentonite clay.
The amazing healing power of bentonite clay
Healing clays have been traditionally used as natural medicine by mankind for thousands of years and are still used regularly by people around the world for their healing and health promoting properties. Bentonite is one of the best of those healing clays and is part of a class of clay minerals known as smectite.
Bentonite clay is made up of flat rectangular particles, which, when hydrated, have a powerful negative charge, giving them an amazing ability to pull to their surface, and hold on to, positively charged ions, similar to the way a magnet will pull and hold on to iron filings.
This makes bentonite clay a powerful therapy that can be used to not only remove radiation from the body but also heavy metals, pollutants, bacteria, fungus, viruses and even parasites. Bentonite clay can be used internally, mixed with water, or externally in baths as well as in poultices and compresses.
Bentonite clay has been found to be a simple and safe treatment for a wide range of health issues and can be useful for adults, children and pets. For example, clay baths have been found by many parents of autistic children to often provide positive results, because the clay removes mercury as well as other heavy metals and pollutants.
While most of us have no problem using clay externally, the prospect of consuming clay can be a little daunting, but the health benefits are real and the taste is not so bad. If clay is to be consumed, ensure that it is calcium bentonite clay (not sodium bentonite, which is not suitable for consumption). Never let bentonite clay come into contact with metal, and ensure that plastic or glass are used to mix and store it. When taking clay internally, mix between 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon in 8 oz of water and consume at least two hours away from taking any food, supplements or medication.
