hey, guys. dr. axe here, founder of draxe.comas well as a doctor of functional medicine. today i want to talk to you about the manybenefits of bentonite clay, also known as montmorillonite clay. clay has been used forthousands of years for healing benefits. in this video, i'm going to talk about many thingslike how it can support skin health, reduce inflammation and especially support digestivehealth as well as detoxification and cleansing.
Oregano Oil For Warts, so, i actually have a bottle here. i've useda couple different brands here. this is actually a liquid form. most of the time i do it ina powder form. again, clay here, tremendous benefits. so, it's surprising to some people when isay that eating dirt or eating clay can actually
be good for your body and i want to kind ofbreak this down on how this works. clay, the reason it's beneficial is it absorbs the toxinsand microorganisms. if your body has been exposed to any type of bad bacteria, heavymetal or something that shouldn't be in your body, clay really binds to things. in fact,if you ever picked up clay yourself, you know it's very sticky. think of it that way. it'sgoing through your body and sticking to and binding to those toxins, pulling them outof your body. so again, really the first main benefit you'regoing to have with using bentonite clay is that it really supports your body in healthydetoxification. it absorbs the heavy metals. it absorbs to environmental pollutants. itabsorbs different types of bad bacteria, parasites
and other chemicals that you may be exposedto. again, first main benefit is detoxification. the second benefit of bentonite clay is thatit's anti-inflammatory. in fact, it's also great for the skin for that reason. womenhave been putting on clay face masks for well over 100 years and seeing great results intheir skin by doing so. this has been shown to be an effective natural treatment for eczema,psoriasis, dermatitis, as well as acne and supporting the slow aging or anti-aging ofyour skin. again, bentonite clay is great for that reason as well. one of the thingsyou can do is make a clay face mask by mixing just a little bit of water with clay, rubbingit on your face, leaving it on there for about 20 minutes and then rinsing it off. clay willactually bind to the bad bacteria on your
skin that can cause things like acne as wellas other chemicals and pull them off your skin. by the way, a lot of women should practiceputting clay on their face because a lot of these makeups today that women use, are loadedwith different types of chemicals that can cause the skin to age prematurely. a lot ofthose toxins can even get into the system over time, increasing the risk of differentdiseases. so again, clay is amazing for detoxifying the skin, great for skin health and it's alsogreat to be taken internally. the third main benefit of clay is how it supportsthe digestive system. so, you can take about one teaspoon of clay a day mixed with water.i recommend doing that right before you go
to bed or first thing in the morning. youwant to do it between meals, about an hour apart from a meal. again, it's great for thosebenefits as well. so, if you struggle with an issue, especially like diarrhea, loosestools, leaky gut, those issues you can benefit from taking a teaspoon of clay a day. again,especially diarrhea as i mentioned. so again, just one teaspoon a day, but it will reallygo through your system. if you have pathogenic bacteria, different types of let's say metalsor toxins within the body, it's going to go and absorb those and help your body eliminatethose. then last but not least, what i would sayis the fourth main benefit of bentonite clay, is that it can be as a natural multivitamin.it's absolutely true. in fact, when you look
at the minerals that are found in clay, it'stremendous. in fact, the soil itself is packed with healthy minerals and clay especially.again, in a way, it can be used as a natural multivitamin. now, obviously you need to consumea lot of fruits and vegetables and these things on a regular basis, these health foods. alsoit is packed with minerals and it's very alkalizing to the body. if you're looking to get yourbody more alkaline, it has a lot of alkaline minerals, especially things like iron, magnesiumand zinc, and a lot of those minerals in the soil that are alkaline in nature. this helpsreduce acidity and alkalize the body. so again, one teaspoon of clay a day is goingto bring your body tremendous health benefits. this is why i do recommend it. you think aboutthis, for the past 5,000 years, people ate
dirt. literally, when you pulled a carrotout of the ground, we washed it off but some of that good bacteria and microorganisms stayedon that piece of food. today, we chlorinate our foods. we kill off all the bacteria whichisn't good. we should be getting what are called sbos. those soil based organisms orsoil based microbes are great for our health and so clay is also going to contain probioticsas well as other micronutrients that really support the health of your body. again, if you really want to experience thesebenefits from reducing inflammation, detoxifying your skin, detoxifying your intestines andcolon and getting more nutrients and vitamins in the body which also will help alkalizethe body, then i recommend doing one teaspoon
of clay a day. by the way, when buying clay,make sure it's a food grade clay or a medicinal clay like bentonite or montmorillonite clay.if you've enjoyed this video, make sure you subscribe to our youtube channel and checkout more articles on the benefits of bentonite clay there on draxe.com.
