(NewsTarget) Before healing clays became so popular, there was very little information on the internet regarding these all-natural, drug-free, alternative healing modalities. Since the popularity of Calcium Bentonite Clays have increased, misconceptions about how they work have become rampant. It is now time to correct some of these common erroneous beliefs.

1. MYTH: Taking clay internally will absorb nutrients, vitamins and minerals from daily supplements and foods you eat.
FALSE. Quite the contrary. Calcium Bentonite Clay molecules hold a strong negative ionic charge, and they are only attracted to substances that hold a positive charge like toxins and contaminants. The Clay cleanses the colon by pulling out old putrefied fecal matter and mucoid plaque buildup that is blocking the absorption of vitamins, minerals, supplements and nutrition from the foods we eat. Energy levels are known to increase in 1-3 days depending on the state of the individual.

2. MYTH: Calcium Bentonite Clay will absorb all the good flora bacteria in the digestive tract.
FALSE. Aside from its absorbent and revitalizing properties, Clay is also a catalyst when taken orally, for it favors the transformation of foods into nutritive elements. According to Raymond Dextreit, the author of Earth Cures, "Clay is incomparable for maintaining or reestablishing a good normal flora, for it favors the development of useful ferments, while opposing the growth of pathogenic bacilli."

3. MYTH: Aluminum in Clay is dangerous.
FALSE. Aluminum is part of the structural make up of all clays. The aluminum in Calcium Bentonite Clay is in a safe oxide form, not the dangerous man-made processed aluminum. The many trace minerals in Calcium Bentonite Clay are fused together into a super compound structure known as a clay particle, which cannot break down and cannot be absorbed by your body.

4. MYTH: Clays are dietary supplements, like vitamins.
FALSE. Though very small amounts of the dominant minerals (i.e. calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium) in clays might be exchanged in the adsorption ionic exchange layer, they are not sufficient to meet daily supplement requirements.

A little bit of incorrect knowledge can be very harmful. Help set the record straight on this multi-beneficial gift from Mother Earth. Now, go spread some good information.

All that being said, all clays are not alike. It is important to know your clays.
