Montmorillonite Clay is a very soft phyllosilicate group of minerals that typically form in microscopic crystals, forming a clay. The substance’s absorption properties are relatively high. Clay offers more than 60 naturally balanced macro, micro and trace mineral elements in a highly bio-available form. Clay works in a dogs body to expel parasites, remove toxins and facilitate the exchange of cations, resulting in an unsurpassed cleansing agent. It balances and maintains the body’s pH, water balance, osmotic pressure and intestinal flora.
The removal of a full spectrum of toxins is one of Calcium Montmorillonite Clay’s main claims to fame. It can assist the body in ridding itself of heavy metals and toxins through binding (adsorption), made possible by its negatively charged ions seeking out positively charged ions (toxins) throughout a dogs body.
