Calcium Bentonite is a natural clay formed from the weathering of volcanic ash in the presence of water. It is sometimes called montmorillonite or Pascalite.
Clays, particularly bentonite clay, have been used for hundreds of years as natural medicinal remedies. Because of the great power of calcium bentonite for absorption and adsorption, it has many beneficial uses throughout the body for maintaining health.
Bentonite clay and its strong absorptive properties have been used topically to draw fluid from burns and infections, as well as on spider bites and bee stings. It is also used as a deodorant, a facial mask, and for healing acne and other skin problems. Calcium bentonite is also used as a digestive aid and a colon cleanser, as well as oral hygiene and dental health.
