Bentonite has been used as a body detoxifier and cleanser for centuries. Bentonite, a finely ground clay that comes from deposits of volcanic ash, supports the intestinal system in the elimination of toxins. It can reportedly absorb pathogenic viruses, as well as herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals and radiation.

Bentonite attracts and neutralizes poisons in the intestinal tract. Studies show that it can help to eliminate diarrhea resulting from food allergies, food poisoning, mucus colitis, spastic colitis, viral infections, stomach flu, and parasites. Bentonite is naturally absorbent and gentle on the system.
