Our Detoxificant is a natural and powerful detoxicant derived from bentonite, a mineral-rich volcanic clay.* For centuries, native tribes around the world have recognized the health benefiting properties of bentonite clay. We use a special process to refine the raw bentonite clay to remove mica, dirt and other impurities, in order to concentrate the active detoxifying ingredient, montmorillonite ("mont-mor-ill-o-nite")*. This procedure places montmorillonite into a colloidal suspension and retains its innate negative charge. These properties allow the powerful adsorption (physical binding) of positively charged substances.* (Most metabolic, environmental, and chemical wastes are positively charged.) Montmorillonite possesses the ability to adsorb about 40 times its own weight in positively charged substances present in the alimentary canal.* Because montomorillonite has such strong adsorptive properties and is not digested, it tightly binds toxic material to be excreted.* * This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
