Calcium Bentonite Clay
Healing Clays have been used throughout history for their nutrients and to help rid the body of toxins. Many animals will also turn to eating dirt and clay to help remove poisons from their systems or during times of illness or distress.
Bentonite Clay have once again been gaining popularity for internal and external detoxification, and with good reason. Calcium Bentonite Clay is a unique clay due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals.
Why Calcium Bentonite Clay
Because it does not swell as much as sodium bentonite. Calcium Bentonite will have some tiny particles small enough to pass through the colon wall into the bloodstream. There it will scavenge out toxins and leave behind vital minerals. Montmorillonite is a Silica based mineral and it is silica that allows calcium to pass through the outer portion of the bone to the interior where it is most needed.
Another factor that makes Bentonite Clay Powder so indispensable is it’s ability to elevate your body’s pH. The Bentonite will absorb some of the hydrogen from your cells enabling them to fill that space with the oxygen which we all crave.
Since Bentonite clay carries a strong negative charge it will bond to the positive charge in many toxins. When it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical, or heavy metal, the clay will absorb the toxin and release it’s minerals for the body to use. That is why we sell Calcium Bentonite Clay, you will get the benefits of calcium as it replaces toxins in your system. It is also why we don't sell Sodium Bentonite Clay as it will replace the toxins and leave sodium in its place! Clay also helps get oxygen to cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen instead.
It is a common ingredient in detox and cleansing products. It has an alkalizing effect on the body and when taken correctly, it can help balance gut bacteria.
Benefits of Calcium Bentonite Clay
Some of the benefits reported from taking Bentonite
Clay to help with:
- Digestive disturbances like acid reflux, constipation, bloating, gas, etc. (Kaolin clay was common ingredient in medicines like Maalox and Rolaids for years)
- Helping with skin and allergy issues
- To help provide minerals for the body
- To help speed recovery from vomiting and diarrhea
- In oral health preperations
- Externally for all types of skin problems and to speed healing
Things NOT To DO
You are never supposed to use metal utensils with your
bentonite clay because the metals can leach from the
utensil and be pulled into the clay. This fills the clay up with
those positively charged metals and means your clay will
practically be useless by the time you use it since it’s already
full of the metals from the utensil you used. Plastic spoons,
which everyone has somewhere are the correct utensils to use
with your clay!
If you take bentonite clay in water, you have to continue to drink water throughout the day to help the clay stay thin and not “settle” or “compact” in your colon.
When it is mixed with water it rapidly swells open like a porous sponge. Then the toxins are drawn into the sponge through electrical attraction and once there, they are bound.
Ways to USE Calcium Bentonite Clay
Clay can be very beneficial for hair in the same way it can be beneficial in the rest of the body: it removes toxins to leave hair super-clean and with a lot of shiny volume.
Bentonite Clay Mask:
A clay mask made from Bentonite will draw excess oils and debris to the surface of your skin, thus boosting circulation to tighten the skin and stimulate blood flow, cleans off dead skin cells that will clog pores.
Bentonite Clay for skin irritation:
To control itching: A simple “mud pack” made with bentonite clay powder and enough water to create a thick goo can help control the itch and dry up blisters, herbalists say. Spread the clay over the affected area and let air dry. Keep it on until the clay wears off or gets itchy. Wash off the residue.
For first-aid: To make a healing pack, mix Bentonite clay powder with water and an anti-infection herb like garlic or thyme and apply to pimples, boils, or wounds.
This is a very great way to use calcium bentonite clay since it works fast!

What Studies are Showing
Tough read but important. Calcium montmorillonite clay reduces urinary biomarkers...
Fumonisin B₁ (FB₁) is often a co-contaminant with aflatoxin (AF) in grains and may enhance AF's carcinogenicity by acting as a cancer promoter. Calcium montmorillonite (i.e. NovaSil, NS) is a possible dietary intervention to help decrease chronic aflatoxin exposure where populations are at risk. Previous studies show that an oral dose of NS clay was able to reduce AF exposure in a Ghanaian population. In vitro analyses from our laboratory indicated that FB₁ (like aflatoxin) could also be sorbed onto the surfaces of NS. Hence, our objectives were to evaluate the efficacy of NS clay to reduce urinary FB₁ in a rodent model and then in a human population highly exposed to AF. In the rodent model, male Fisher rats were randomly assigned to either FB₁ control, FB₁ + 2% NS or absolute control group. FB₁ alone or with clay was given as a single dose by gavage. For the human trial, participants received NS (1.5 or 3 g day⁻¹) or placebo (1.5 g day⁻¹) for 3 months. Urines from weeks 8 and 10 were collected from the study participants for analysis. In rats, NS significantly reduced urinary FB₁ biomarker by 20% in 24 h and 50% after 48 h compared to controls. In the humans, 56% of the urine samples analysed (n = 186) had detectable levels of FB₁. Median urinary FB₁ levels were significantly (p < 0.05) decreased by >90% in the high dose NS group (3 g day⁻¹) compared to the placebo. This work indicates that our study participants in Ghana were exposed to FB₁ (in addition to AFs) from the diet. Moreover, earlier studies have shown conclusively that NS reduces the bioavailability of AF and the findings from this study suggest that NS clay also reduces the bioavailability FB₁. This is important since AF is a proven dietary risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in humans and FB₁ is suspected to be a dietary risk factor for HCC and oesophageal cancer in humans.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22324939
