Bentonite Clay Detox

Bentonite Clay Detox

Okay, so we all know the importance of detoxing, right?  With all the chemicals and toxins that are everywhere in our fast-paced society today, cleansing and detoxing is necessary to achieve good health and fitness.  Unfortunately, we live in an instant gratification type society.  Everyone wants it now, with a side of convenience of course.  That immediate want and convenience comes at a price, and that price is our health.

With so many processed foods with preservatives on the market, fruits and vegetables with pesticides and herbicides, pollution in the air and water and the chemicals in the products that are supposed to keep our kitchens and bathrooms clean, it is no wonder that our bodies are being overloaded with toxins.  Our bodies are made to be well oiled machines.  Toxins and chemicals can and will comprise that.

Bentonite clay is a very effective and natural colon cleanser that I use.  This clay can be ingested in the powder form, or you can purchase liquid calcium bentonite clay.  I like the liquid calcium bentonite clay because it is more convenient in my opinion.  Consuming the clay will eliminate toxins in the body by absorbing toxins as it passes through the body.  Bentonite clay is an alkaline substance so when it is consumed it neutralizes the body’s acidity.

Bentonite clay is extremely safe.  You will definitely see an improvement in your health and energy.  Other benefits include; aiding in constipation, bloating and gas.  Once you feel better and the more energy you have, you can go out there and exercise like you never did before.

Cleansing can help with flattening your tummy too.  This was a huge problem with me, after years of subjecting my body to toxins and chemicals, it became manifested in my belly.  This is because excess waste and toxins can accumulate making one bloated and give the impression of a protruding tummy.  That is what happened with me.  After I had my kids, I lost weight everywhere but my belly, and I could not understand why that was the case.  After doing a TON of research, I realized I needed to detox.  This is key to a flat tummy.  All the crunches and sit ups are not going to make a difference if you are bloated because of toxins in your body.

This clay is very beneficial for optimum health.  It also has cosmetic benefits as well which I will talk about in a forthcoming post.

Till next time…detox and keep the body running like a smooth machine!

  1. I’ve been looking into doing a detox, but I never knew where to even start looking for one. Especially one that is natural. I’m HORRIBLE, 100% horrible with my diet, I eat so much junk. I just love it, but I’ve been trying REALLY hard to change that.. it’s just SO hard for some reason. But I’m sure once I do it, and stick to it.. the benefits will make it WORTH it!

  2. Hey Amber,

    I have used bentonite clay many, many times! It’s completely neutral, which means it acts like a sponge for all other gunk in your system. Great post. Good recommendation.

    I would love to.know.more about this. I go to the gym twice a fay most days and I always seem to feel bloated.

    • A lot of people seem to think that being bloated is just something their body does for no reason but usually there is a reason. Food sensitivities are the reason for a lot of it. I had to eliminate food groups and see how my body responded. Also, toxins will leave you bloated too. For me I had to detox and eliminate foods that I was sensitive to relieve being bloated.

  4. I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog (from YML). I really need to try this, do you take it daily or is it just something you do for a short period of time?

    • I take it daily but in small doses. It helps me a lot. But one thing I have found out when taking it daily is that it not only clears the bad stuff but it takes away the good stuff in your gut too. So if you take it daily, taking probiotics is necessary. Good bacteria is good for the gut too so you have to find a good balance for you. You can do it for short term use too. For short term use, the bottle says take 1 tablespoonful every two hours. Drink lots of water. I have seen good results from daily use.
