OUR MONTMORILLONITE CLAYS ARE VERY PURE, CONTAINING 97% MONTMORILLONITE CRYSTALS.
THE SPECIFIC LATTICE STRUCTURE and negative (anionic) electrical charge OF MONTMORILLONITEs, OFFER the HIGH AFFINITY FOR ATTRACTING TOXINS, PATHOGENS & HEAVY METALs. These are DRAWn DEEP WITHIN THE CLAYs structure, WHERE THEY CAN BE SAFELY retained (‘absorbtion’), they also adhere to the clays surface (‘adsorbtion’). Beneficial minerals such as iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium are then displaced and released from the clay, making them available for use by the body.
