Not All Clay Was Created Equal
Shaped and formed over the life of our planet, clay is the complex result of volcanic activity, weather, mineralization, and a variety of other geologic factors. Clay deposits run along veins in the earth, and much like humans, each vein of clay has its own “fingerprint” that makes it individually unique in its therapeutic potential. Edible Earth is a synergistic blend of the finest healing clays in North America, to produce the highest quality clay supplement available. Edible Earth is “alive” and always handled with the utmost respect for the natural energy and vitality instilled by mother earth.
Everything that we ingest
The Mechanics of Clay
A more apt name would be "the chemistry, kinetics, and thermodynamics of clay" for the sticklers out there... but we're trying to keep this as digestible as possible without all of the geek speak.
The question “How does the clay work exactly?” is a topic that pops up in conversation quite often – which isn’t surprising, given that clay is our core product. The actual "mechanics" of clay are both quite simple as well as thoroughly complex, as most things are in life. So, let's start off with a more general view before we get down to the nitty gritty (Get it? Gritty?).
Clay is one of the most universal tools when it comes to detoxification - and that doesn’t just refer to its applications inside (and outside) the human body. Around the world, various types of clays are utilized for everything from water purification, to hazardous and radioactive waste cleanup. Right now, your local water treatment facility may even be using a form of bentonite clay to help filter heavy metals and chemical contaminants out of your drinking water in order to make it potable. In fact, the discovery that clays held this amazing capacity to capture micro-contaminants was a huge boon to many industries – especially in heavily mined areas where groundwater showed dangerous levels of contamination on such a large scale.
Just how far do the powers of clay extend, you ask? Well, through ongoing research, we’ve seen bentonite and montmorillonite clays used successfully in the removal or containment of most detrimental toxins that are thrown at them – dyes, pesticides, volatile chemicals compounds, radioactive isotopes, various viruses and bacteria, heavy metals, surfactants, oxidizing agents… the list goes on and on.
Clays like these are essentially nature’s safety net, filtration system, and storage vault. But what exactly gives them this unrivalled knack? One word: Adsorption.
What is adsorption?
Adsorption is the process in which an adsorbate (like lead or mercury) adheres to the surface of an adsorbent (like our bentonite clay). This is a very different process than absorption, because adsorption is strictly surface based - whereas absorption involves a fluid permeating or being dissolved by the absorbent.
The amount [of adsorbate] that will “cling” to the clay depends on many factors – one of which is surface area. The extremely fine grain of our bentonite clay creates a large amount of surface area which grows as the clay swells with water. Another factor is the pH of the mixture – in which a slightly more acidic mixture (pH between 5-6) has shown to improve sorption properties.
(For more on how these properties are measured, look up the Langmuir Adsorption Model)
So… it’s not really “magnetic” then?
Although there are forms of bentonite that are either naturally magnetic, or modified to be magnetic, that quality is not a necessity in order to perform the job that we are using it for. It would be highly convenient, though, to think that we are literally using magnets to drag these toxins from our bodies (and, of course, infinitely more understandable)… but the reality is much more elaborate, to say the least. We utilize the term "magnetic clay" as a means to provide a more visual understanding of a complex process.
And, to tell you the truth… Exothermic Adsorption Clay Detox Baths just doesn’t have the same ring to it!
