When bentonite clay is taken into one’s body, metals and toxins are drawn into the ‘sponge’ through electrical attraction and bonding.

A few years ago my husband and I moved into a house infested with black mold- but we couldn’t see it and didn’t know it was there. In a short time, we both started getting sick. At first we just thought our immune systems were run down, but three months later I was in the hospital with my heart hurting. Long story short, we did not get better overnight. I tried many things. We even tried a diet for three months of no sugar, no grains, no yeast, and no dairy. We ate wild meat, organic vegetables, and, later in the diet, added some organic fruit. We felt better while we were on the diet, but after we stopped, I started getting sick again. I did some more research and found that a person’s body can hold metals and will hold them more often if your immune system is down. Having large amounts of metals in your body can be fatal. That is when I started using Sodium Bentonite Clay.

Bentonite Clay Powder is made up of a high number of tiny platelets with negative electrical charges on their flat surfaces and positive charges on their edges. When bentonite clay absorbs water it swells up to anywhere from double to triple its size; in other words, it is stretched open like a highly porous sponge. When bentonite clay is taken into one’s body, metals and toxins are drawn into the ‘sponge’ through electrical attraction and bonding. I had tried many detoxes in the past, but they all made me too sickly. My body could not handle the flush of toxins that my body discharged so suddenly. So how was this detox different? Bentonite clay does not flush toxins into the liver and kidneys; it absorbs them. It has a high astringent quality. I read that if you take a bentonite clay bath, depending on how much metal you have in your body, the clay will darken and get a little slimy. If you are highly toxic, the clay will turn black and tar-like.

I mixed 2½ lbs of the clay into a hot bath. I drank lots of water before and throughout my bath. I was sweating as I rubbed the clumps of undissolved clay against my skin, being careful to get clay on all my glands (armpits, neck, crotch, behind the knees, etc.). After 20 to 30 minutes of soaking, I got out, but left the water in. I let it sit for a few hours until the clay settled. Then I drained off the water and wiped up the very dark, slimy clay out of the tub.

This worked very well to help with my problem, but it was very time-consuming. Later, after much more research, I compounded an internal cleanser mixture with bentonite clay, active charcoal, bilberries, fiber and small amounts of other ingredients, which I call Detox+. This was my turning point.

It is best to drink bentonite on an empty stomach at least one hour before or after meals. If drinking it is too much for you, bentonite powder can also be encapsulated. Fiber helps the bentonite do its job better while getting the toxins out quicker. I started with one tablespoon of my bentonite clay compound daily, mixed with a small amount of juice. I paid attention to the results for a week, then gradually increased the dosage to no more than 4 tablespoons daily, in divided doses. As my body “cleaned house,” it started healing itself. All of a sudden, the supplements I had been taking started working again.

My body had been so overloaded with metals and toxins that it could not heal itself; now it does. I hope this helps you as it did for me. I am not a doctor and cannot advise or prescribe any treatment for you. Consult your physician, and do your own research before taking anything internally.


First Week:

Start with 1 Tbls. Detox+ in 8 oz. or more of water or juice once a day.

Second Week:

Add more after first week. Work up to 2 Tbls. a day.

I took it for over a month, about 4 to 6 weeks.


Remember to take fiber with the bentonite clay and/or Detox+. I (Shoshanna) took 1 Tbls. fiber from Melaleuca called FiberWise. I mixed my Detox+ with the fiber and drank it in the morning before breakfast. You can use any fiber you want to, so do not feel like you have to use what I did, but if you choose to, you can get it at You can also find fiber at Wal-Mart or a health store.

You will not need to take bentonite clay and Detox+ together. Take one or the other.

Detox+ (which contains activated charcoal) will more than likely conflict with medication(s). If you are on medications, it is suggested to have a doctor or medical professional oversee your consumption of Detox+, especially in the case of strong medications. The same goes for vitamins and supplements.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

Detox+ cannot be encapsulated. Bentonite clay and charcoal powder can be encapsulated.

It is best to do the bentonite clay bath at the beginning of your detox to start it off strong. You can continue doing the baths throughout the detox period.

Bentonite clay (which is one of the main ingredients in the Detox+) helps draw lead out of your system.

I feel a whole lot better since using detox+
by Amber60 on Apr 5, 2014

I have Fibromyalgia, and now since using detox+ I do not wake up with all the muscle pain I used to have. I feel 100% better. Thank you bulk herb. I just bought another pound for my husband.

Fiber with Detox
by Anonymous on Mar 4, 2014

You recommend taking fiber with this product. Would the Resolution Fiber be ok? I just received my Resolution kit and am thinking of ordering Detox+ as well.

    Re: Fiber with Detox
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 10, 2014

    Yes, you can take the resolution fiber for extra fiber with the detox+.

I have Fibromyalgia and wonder if this will help?
by Valerie Valentine on Feb 23, 2014

I have been thinking, could it be the heavy metals that causes Fibromyalgia? Doctors do not know what causes it. I'm thinking there could be a high possibility that heavy metals would cause it. I'm going to try it and if it does stop the Fibromyalgia symptoms I will have to tell other fibromyalgia patients that it does and where to get Detox + and about the empty capsules, and machine to make them.

    Re: I have Fibromyalgia and wonder if this will help?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 24, 2014

    From what I have read, it is quite possible that heavy metals may be a cause of Fibromyalgia. In which case, detoxing would be the place to start!

by Rebecca on Feb 17, 2014

Are the ingredients listed in order of most to least portions? Could you share what apple fruit pectin does? I didn't see it sold individually with a description of its uses. Thanks!

    Re: Ingredients
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 18, 2014

    Hello, yes the ingredient list is from most to least. As for the Apple Fruit Pectin, it is a source of fiber, to help your body pass toxins quickly.

Weight loss
by Angie on Feb 7, 2014

Hi there! I have been struggling to lose weight after my last pregnancy. I eat carefully and exercise faithfully and not a pound has come off for the last eight months. Will this help? I am currently making the liver cleanse and plan to take that soon. I am very frustrated as I would like to lose 15-20 pounds.

    Re: Weight loss
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 12, 2014

    This may help with weight loss if your body is holding toxins and heavy metals. I would also strongly recommend that you check out our Resolution Kit and our Women's Only Tincture Kit as some women's weight struggles originate from a hormonal problem. Thanks!

Detox confusion?
by Crissy on Feb 6, 2014

So, detox+ is a detox/cleanse for the colon? Correct.. .? After I follow the regime , I would like to do a thorough liver cleanse. Suggestions?

    Re: Detox confusion?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 12, 2014

    Detox+ is a colon cleanse, however it is also good for getting rid of toxins and heavy metals. Check out our Liver Cleanse Tincture mix for a great liver cleanser! Thanks!

Detox+ with coffee?
by Amanda on Oct 1, 2013

My husband and I just got our packages of Detox+ and I have a question. Hubby drinks coffee first thing in the morning. Will that have any effect on the detox? Should he wait and drink it later?

    Re: Detox+ with coffee?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Oct 2, 2013

    No, he can still drink coffee in the morning as normal. Thanks!

    Re: detox
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 9, 2013

    This will help detox your body. I would take the vitamins a couple hours after taking the Detox+. Make sure to drink plenty of water! Thanks!

Dosage question
by Audra Silva on Jun 17, 2013

Do you take the 2 tablespoons at once, or divide the dose in two?

By the way, I've noticed if I seem a little foggy brained before I take this, within a couple of minutes after I finish, I'm much clearer. Love that. :)

    Re: Dosage question
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 19, 2013

    The 2 tablespoons can be divided into 2 doses or taken at once. Whatever your preference.

Detox++ liver+ kidney+ colon cleanse
by Anonymous on Jun 9, 2013

Thank you for the sharing of all your research and caring for the health of others! I have been reading up on some of the different herbs, tinctures, and cleanses, in preparation for my own detox and health rehaul, and have come up with a few questions. If I am doing the Detox+, why would it be neccessary to also do a liver, colon, and or kidney cleanse? Wouldn't the Detox be cleansing all of my organs especially if combined with the Clay baths? Would any of the cleanses/detoxes cancel the other out?

    Re: Detox++ liver+ kidney+ colon cleanse
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 12, 2013

    The Detox+ is geared toward cleansing the colon, so it wouldn't cleanse all the other organs in your body. You would need to do additional cleanses such as liver, kidney, blood, or whichever organs you want to clean. You can do the Detox+ and Liver Cleanse at the same time. I would personally start on the Detox+ while the Liver cleanse is "brewing" and once it is finished start on that as well.

1. For Chronic Fatigue, Would you suggest using this for 6 weeks FIRST before using Erin's Green smoothie mix and beet root powder? Or taking all three of them simutaneously?

2. Would you recommend anything else For Chronic Fatigue?

3. How much of the Detox plus do I need to purchase for a full 6 week regimen? (I totaled a need of 77 TBS)
THANK YOU! Praising God there is hope to free my dad from 20 years of Chronic Fatigue.

    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 25, 2013

    You can take the Erin's drink mix and beet root powder while doing the Detox+ as long as you take it at least 2 hrs. before or after the Detox+. If it was me, I would also try to eat organic non-GMO products, organic meat, vegetables and fruit and cut out refined foods from my diet as much as possible. For 1 person using it for 6 wks., you will need approx. 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. of the Detox+ if you are following the suggestions on our website.

Question on the flax seeds
by JoyElaine on Mar 8, 2013

I was wondering why the flax seeds in the Detox + aren't ground up. I've heard that whole flax seeds aren't digestible. Should I be chewing them, or was it the intent that the mix be ground up more before taking it?

    Re: Question on the flax seeds
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 19, 2013

    The reason they are not ground up is because the whole seed is more of a "colon broom" than the powder would be, but yes you want it ground if you're taking it as a fiber. You don't need to chew them in the Detox+ and it's not intended to grind before taking.

Detox+ is a must!
by Anonymous on Feb 24, 2013

Detox+ should be in every medicine cabinet. Here is how I was first introduced to it.

I am allergic to eggs. I realized that I had accidentally eaten some eggs when my stomach started getting that feeling of pain and nausea I get when I've eaten an egg. My sister had a supply of detox; she put a tsp into a small glass of water and said, "Here, take this." Less than 30 minutes later my stomach wasn't hurting any more. Totally took the pain away.

Yes, I'll always have this on hand. THANKS BULKHERBSTORE!

Allergy relief
by Rachel on Aug 18, 2012

Detox+ helped amazingly with my husbands battle with seasonal allergies. None of the herbs we tried seemed to be working, so we decided this year to clean house with Detox+. The results have been incredible. His symptoms are almost completely gone!

Many benefits of Detox +
by Anonymous on Jul 19, 2012

Detox + is a great product. I found that after a week of taking it, my cravings for sugar and caffeine were gone. I took it for a month, and later I found that my monthly mood swings completely disappeared. I felt even-tempered all the time -- it was great.
It also cleared up my yeast overgrowth problem.

My husband was so impressed with my recommendation, that he took it for a month.
With the world we live in, having a good detox is beneficial for just about everyone.

Skin seems clearer and brighter!

Cleans me out :)
by Shelby Nutz on Jun 20, 2012

This detox mix is wonderful. I have been using detox mixes, taking
detox pills etc for years, and many of them just did not do the trick
or seemed to bloat my stomach more than clean it out. I take this mix
at night, with several cups of water. It does nothing to my system
except clean it out around noon the next day - no bloating or gas, no
pain! I am so thankful for this mix!! I am planning on taking this to
my doctor and recommending that she introduce this to other patients
who need detox for heavy metals or any other issue.

Please, take a moment and comment on this product.
