Bentonite Brite Toothpaste(Bentonite Clay)
Traditionally used to promote internal cleansing and has become a popular ingredient in a number of detoxification programs. Bentonite clay has been used to address the following issues, constipation, reducing dietary and environmental toxins, supporting the immune system, and helping to remove fluoride from drinking water. Bentonite clay is also responsible for reducing the effectiveness of the immune system, and animal models show that bentonite clay may be a possible immune system strengthener. Bentonite clay binds to unhealthy substances in the mouth, such as around the teeth and on the tongue and gums, and helps to remove them before you swallow them and become sick. Because of Bentonite’s anti-bacterial properties it has been used in natural toothpastes and even mixed with water and used as a daily rinse.
