Bentonite Clay – Why I eat it everyday

I have been consuming food grade bentonite clay everyday for over a year. What has it done for me? It took my joint pain away, plain and simple. If I forget to take it, I can feel it.

This is a naturally forming substance that does more good than most medications, clears heavy metals from the body, toxins are removed and on and on.  You can see what Dr. Axe says: https://draxe.com/10-bentonite-clay-benefits-uses/

My own opinion:  This is an amazing powder, that when used properly can help with gout and many other bodily issues. The reason I mention gout: I told a friend about using food grade bentonite clay as he was REALLY suffering from gout. He bought it and three days later sent me this message…

“Ken, thank you for the food grade bentonite clay suggestion, it is the first time my knees are not hurting in years. Where has this been all my life?!  Thanks again, Carl

This is how I use food grade bentonite clay:

I put a tablespoon or so in a sealable pint jar, Add clean water 3/4 full and shake it up. I put it aside to let the clay mix with the water fully (takes about an hour). Then I drink a half pint a day which translates to about two teaspoons of clay being ingested.

Another way:  If you are drinking it regularly, you can add a teaspoon to a glass of water and let it sit for a while, stirring occasionally until it is fully dissolved. You may have a little grit but it is so worth it!

If I have specific body pains (sore joints, etc) I will drink a whole pint or a double dose and it alleviates the pain within an hour or so.

A little goes a LONG way, so be patient and be sure to read the article as it says using in a bath and on your skin is also beneficial. I use it in my bath on occasion, but it does take some time to dissolve, so be patient. 🙂

I hope this heals what ails you!  🙂


food grade bentonite clay is a “healing clay” that many people are enjoying the benefits by taking internally (in other words, drinking and eating it), on top of using it.
