Calcium bentonite clay is made of iron, sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium from naturally occurring volcanic ash. Bentonite clay has a very strong negative electrical charge. Most toxins such as heavy metals, chemicals, and other impurities have a positive charge. When the clay binds to the toxins, it destroys them and releases minerals which the body then absorbs and uses. Bentonite clay pulls hydrogen from cells, allowing room for oxygen, helping to improve circulation and overall skin tone. Bentonite clay contains silica which strengthens connective tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone. Bentonite clay is also known for naturally diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of scars and rebuild damaged skin tissue.
