Bentonite Clay is recognized more and more for the amazing benefits that it has. It is full of minerals. There is a revival for its historically respected detoxing abilities. All Bentonite has at least 30% of montmorillonite in it, and montmorillonite is also in other mineral composites. The montmorillonite Bentonite Clay contains ions. The ions act as a magnet with an electrical charge that draws the opposite charge. All types of Bentonite have negative charged ions which bond to positive charged particles. That is a really good thing! You know how they say living in the country, breathing fresh air from plants, the wood, the ocean, and waterfall spray (and bentonite clay) are all good for you? They all have negative ions which have traditionally been respected for their abilities to attract and absorb positive ions. Because of Bentonite clay’s powerful detoxing abilities, people use it for cleansing including eliminating odors, purification, baths, masks, and so much more.
Calcium Bentonite vs. Sodium Bentonite
The difference between calcium and sodium bentonite clay is the higher levels of those minerals. You can take calcium bentonite clay and add salt and it would be sodium bentonite. Calcium is also found at higher elevations and is a cleaner clay. Both clays have at least 30% of montmorillonite in it, but montmorillonite is also in other mineral composites. Montmorillonite has high levels of negative ions that may help with cleansing.
Calcium Bentonite: obviously has more calcium than sodium. It is often more alkaline. Calcium Bentonite expands in size, but not as much as Sodium Bentonite.
Sodium Bentonite: clay soaks up water quickly and swells up to 15x its size. Sodium Bentonite clay is often used in everything from industrial uses, products, bath soaks, poultices and more.
The FDA has issued two warnings about using Bentonite Clay internally. So for safety, this product is labelled for External use only.
