Bentonite clay is a volcanic ash, containing many minerals, it is very mild/bland tasting - so easy to drink. Good quality Bentonite Clay should be grey/cream in color. It has a very fine, velveteen feel and is odorless and non-staining.
Bentonite Clay is primarily used for two reasons: it is good at firming up stool and alleviating diarrhea and it is also an excellent detoxification agent.
The value of montmorillonite (the active ingredient in Bentonite) lies in its ability to adsorb (not absorb) many times its own weight and volume in a liquid medium. It has a predominantly negative charge that is capable of attracting many kinds of positively charged particles. Bentonite Clay's structure assists it in attracting and soaking up toxins and contaminants on its exterior wall and then drawing them into the interior center of the clay where they are held and then excreted out in your stool.
It is this sponge-like quality of the Clay that makes it a good anti-diarrhea substance whilst detoxing your body! However, the only drawback is that montmorillonite has been shown in studies to also draw bacteria out of the intestines. So, if your bacterial flora is unhealthy, this is a good thing. But, if you’re supplementing with probiotics, trying to implant a healthy bacterial flora, then you certainly don’t want to be ingesting large amounts of a substance that’s going to pull all these good bacteria out of your gut as well! Therefore, I would only use Bentonite Clay short-term, or in small amounts and then get yourself on the high dose probiotic supplementation that will address the root-cause of your diarrhea.
For two weeks at a time, every so often, bentonite clay provides a good, but gentle detoxification – and then follow with oral probiotics or Jini’s Probiotic Retention Enema.
Your best option for alleviating diarrhea or constipation may be to use the MetaCleanse blend since it contains a combination of psyllium, flaxseed and a small amount of bentonite clay per serving. Many readers find that the combination (synergy) works better than any of these bulking agents on their own. I would agree!
So for pure detox, you may want to use the bentonite, on its own, for 2 weeks or less. But for ongoing or intermittent diarrhea or constipation, the MetaCleanse would be the better option. MetaCleanse will bulk up your stools and help absorb the excess water in diarrhea. If you suffer from constipation, it will keep your stools soft and spongy, stimulating peristalsis and making them easier to pass. Hence, in both conditions, it helps avoid hemorrhoids.
