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 and benefited from the healing properties of bentonite clay in internal and external applications. In the early 20th century, bentonite clay was used by the British Army in India to treat acute bacterial food poisoning and in China to help treat cholera. 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 material to be excreted.*
Note: A perfect accompaniment to #16 Detoxificant is our #19 Intestinal Cleanser. Mixed together in juice, this Cleansing Drink offers the scrubbing and roughage benefits from soluble and insoluble fiber from psyllium, and the detoxification properties of bentonite.
This product is a key component included in our 7 Day Cleansing Program kit.
Our #16 Detoxificant is liquid packaged in a one quart, recyclable amber glass bottle that ensures potency and freshness.
