Healing effects of Slovenian Bentonite clay
There are a host of benefits that are obtained from Slovenian Bentonite clay. Let’s see what they are:
● Removes toxins that bombard the body and the skin through air and water pollution. Although the body has a natural mechanism of ridding itself of these toxins, but due to bodily problems these toxins fail to pass through the stools and get reabsorbed in the bloodstream. This puts an additional strain on the organs in getting rid of these toxins, thereby giving rise to all kinds of ailments. The intense negative electrical charge possessed by this clay helps in absorbing the positively charged toxins.
● Inhibits the propagation of Candida, a fungal disease, that causes a host of problems, such as exhaustion, hormonal imbalance, joint pain, gas, bloating, loss of sex drive and others. Slovenian Bentonite clay kills off this fungus by blocking its respiration.
