Clay is one of the most versatile and cost-effective natural health products on the market. Fine Green Marine Clay has been used since ancient times for a range of health benefits.
If you are not drinking clay as part of your health regime every day, here are 6 important reasons you should consider it now!
1. Drinking Clay Daily Helps To Eliminate Toxins From The Body
Extensive research shows that drinking quality clay is effective in eliminating toxins to keep us healthy.
We are increasingly exposed to chemicals through our food, personal care products, environment and lifestyle choices. While our bodies are generally efficient in eliminating toxins, a problem arises when these chemicals are allowed to build up faster than they can be eliminated, resulting in toxic overload. Some symptoms include fatigue, muscular tension, unexplained aches and pains, mental fogginess, joint stiffness, even bloating and flatulence, acidity and reflux.
Green Marine clay binds to toxins, chemicals, parasites and heavy metals and eliminates them from your body, as it moves through your digestive tract.
Drinking clay daily will help you to eliminate these toxins more effectively from your body.
2. Marine Clay Cleanses The Digestive System And Improves The Body’s Ability To Absorb Key Nutrients.
Fine Green Marine Clay has a powerful ability to cleanse the digestive system.
Clinical Naturopaths will tell you that the key to optimal health lies in the gut. Your digestive system is acomplex and sophisticated system responsible for breaking down the food you eat into a form that can be easily absorbed by your bloodstream. Poor digestion, overeating, eating the wrong kinds of food, and an increasing exposure to man-made chemicals, can interfere with this absorption.
A well functioning digestive system means that vitamins, minerals and trace elements necessary for good health are more easily absorbed by the body and into the blood stream which improves the overall functioning of our organs and key systems.
3. Drinking Marine Clay Replenishes The Body With Essential Minerals
Fine Green Marine clay is rich in a range of essential minerals and trace elements such as Magnesium, Silica, Iron and Calcium. As the clay moves through the digestive tract, it allows for the absorption of these minerals, making it a cost-effective and efficient way of ensuring your body is re-mineralised.
Magnesium is essential for healthy muscles, strong bones and teeth and a healthy heart.
Silica is vital for radiant and glowing skin, flexible joints; and strong healthy hair. It also increases the overall benefits of calcium, vitamin D, and Glucosamine for healthy bones.
Iron is important for healthy blood and a strong immune system.
Calcium is important for healthy bones and teeth and preventing osteoporosis. It is also well documented as being important for treating PMS and supporting an alkaline body, thereby minimizing inflammation and chronic disease.
4. Drinking Marine Clay Can Improve Energy Levels
Clay helps to absorb toxins and eliminate them from the body before they enter the bloodstream. In doing so, drinking clay regularly, helps to reduce the overload of toxins the liver, kidneys and the lymphatic system normally have to filter out.
The more efficient these organs are the less energy is wasted in eliminating excess toxins. The result is a more energetic and vibrant body.
5. Marine Clay Is Anti-Ageing And Stimulates Healthy Cell Growth
Clay is a powerful anti-ageing stimulus, when taken internally, and promotes a positive state of health and well being. Its high negative ionic charge enables the clay to attract, absorb and eliminate toxins, thereby reducing free radicals.
Free radicals age us and contribute to disease. As oxidants, free radicals age our bodies and cells. By eliminating free radicals, marine clay helps to keep us youthful.
6. Clay’s Alkaline PH Helps To Balance The Body
Taking marine clay internally is about promoting an alkaline pH. This is important because a body that is too acidic can become inflammatory and result in chronic pain and disease. While a typical western diet involves foods that are highly acidic, for example, meat, alcohol, sugar, refined carbohydrates and saturated fats, our metabolic processes depend on an alkaline environment. A system that is chronically acidic corrodes body tissue and can interrupt cellular activities and functions.
Maintaining an alkaline system is very important to good health. This requires the intake of a lot of alkaline foods such as green and leafy vegetables. Drinking activated marine clay regularly assists with promoting a more alkaline body, and all it takes is one glass a day.
