SVATV Bentonite Clay Removing toxins from the body
Some people ingest bentonite clay with the aim of removing toxins from the body. This may be one of its most well-studied benefits.
Various studies suggest that bentonite clay may reduce the effects of toxins.
For example, a study on chicks found that bentonite clay reduced the effects of a toxin called aflatoxin B1, which comes from certain types of mould. Chicks that received a concentrated bentonite clay product had fewer toxic effects than those who did not receive the clay.
Treating oily skin and acne
Bentonite clay’s adsorbent power may be helpful in treating acne breakouts and oily skin. The clay can help remove sebum, or oil, from the skin’s surface, and it may also have a calming effect on inflamed breakouts.
Using a clay face mask can help remove impurities from the skin to treat acne or reduce the risk of pimples and skin infections.
Detoxifying the skin
Some people use bentonite clay to cleanse specific parts of their bodies. Learn more about using bentonite clay in an armpit detox and a foot detox here.
