Green Calcium Montmorillonite clay that has high swelling ability when water is added, is the best edible clay. It's also known as Calcium Bentonite. As a result of their absorbing and adsorbing powers, this edible clay has a high power of attracting toxins and removing them.
Montmorillonite is a 2:1 clay, and has an octahedral layer between two tetrahedral layers. It is made of hydrous aluminium phyllosilicates.
Do not worry about the aluminium in clay. It is harmless unlike man-made aluminium containers which can contaminate the food stored in it.
It is the 40-50% of silica in the clay that makes clay a healthy choice for the body. Silica is an element found in most of the tissues in our body.
All clays from the Smectite family of clays, such as Montmorillonies and Bentonites, have powerful adsorption and absorption powers. They therefore attract positive ions and bind them.
Positively charged particles include toxins, heavy metals and pathogens. Calcium Bentonite or Calcium Montmorillonite are able to draw them and bind them.
Intestinal worms are also attracted to the clay because they like to feed on the clay. When clay is eliminated, so are the toxins, heavy metals, pathogens such as bacteria and intestinal worms that adhere to it.
Clays that are able to adsorb and absorb are called Living clays. Living clays also have an electromagnetic energy charge.
A Living clay is able to support the cleansing and detoxifying of the body to balance and heal it.
They are able to adsorb and bind positively charged ions to the negative charge on the surface of the clay.
The clay also has a negative charge inside the layers of the clay. These inner negative charge too will attract the positive ions of toxins. The positive charge is pulled slowly because absorption is a slower process compared to adsorption.
All kinds of toxins are easily adsorbed and bound to the surface and some also absorbed and bound within.
Since clay is indigestible, it passes out together with environmental toxins including heavy metal, body toxins from metabolic processes, worms and pathogens.
Calcium Montmorillonite clay can be used safely to remove accumulated toxins through both internal and external means.
The result of a clay detoxification is you will have less pain, less inflammation and less swelling. After a while of using the clay, all these symptoms, usually disappear completely.
Many Calcium Montmorillonites or Bentonites are non-swelling unlike the Sodium Bentonites. However the green Calcium Montmorillonite clay has exceptional swelling powers and is used traditionally as a healing clay.
Green clay is not sedimentary clay which hardly has any healing properties. Green clay was made as a result of volcanic ashfiltering through an ancient sea, river or lake and settling on the bed. The water then dried up and left behind the natural clay, sometimes seen as layers.
Get some Calcium Montmorillonite and stay healthy. Just make sure it has been put through a 325 screen mesh, so that it is not gritty and therefore, easier to eat. Also ensure that it has a pH of 9 or more.The green Calcium clay is the best for internal detoxification
And, what is edible clay...
As Calcium Montmorillonite clay is part of the Smectite family of clays, it has very strong negative charges. It attracts positive ions easily, when hydrated. This makes it an excellent detoxifying agent.
Of all the Smectite Clays, green Calcium Bentonite or Calcium Montmorillonite is the rarest and better of the clays for consumption.
The natural form of Calcium Montmorillonite has a high power of attracting toxins and removing them. It is also reasonably priced and is safe to eat. Yes, you read it right. Eat! When eaten it can do an effective internal cleansing and detoxifying.
So, yes I am encouraging you to eat dirt. I highly recommend it.
