Unlike most sodium-based bentonites, Medi-Clay-FX contains a rare, freshwater-based bentonite believed to be the only known bentonite sourced from the site of an ancient underwater volcanic eruption that was flushed with fresh water for millions of years. This particularly unique smectite form of bentonite clay exhibits powerful absorptive detoxification properties.*
At the outer surface of this clay’s distinctive crystalline structure is a negative electrical charge which characterizes Medi-Clay-FX’s highly effective absorptive qualities. When these negatively charged clay molecules meet undesirable positively charged particles, the clay’s ions are exchanged with the positive ions of the undesirable molecule. Once the clay molecules’ charges are electrically satisfied, the clay’s absorptive properties, which have a crystal-like composition, act like a sponge and pull these undesirable substances deep into the clay’s inner structure, trapping them until the body is able to eliminate them.
Due to the clay’s vast interactive surface area, two capsules, taken 3 times daily (with 4 oz of water) are recommended for beneficial results. It is not necessary to hydrate or soak the clay before use.
