Bentonite is known for its highly absorptive properties and its ability to adsorb (attach to) and bind with certain substances. How does healing clay work? Adsorption & Absorption
The words adsorption and absorption sound similar but are fundamentally different in the functions they represent. "What takes place is actually an ion exchange which is often described as a magnetic or drawing effect.It is electrical attraction." Adsorption describes how clay is able to attach to other substances.
The clay molecule can perhaps be pictured as a stack of business cards with space between them. Around the edge of these cards is a negative electrical charge of unsatisfied ionic bonds. These ions naturally seek to be satisfied and therefore when in contact with substances that carry the opposite (positive) electrical charge an ion exchange takes place.Pollutants and toxic substances carry a positive electrical charge. Absorption is the when clay swells and is stretched open like a highly porous sponge, drawing pollutants and toxins etc. into its internal structure, literally locking them away.The greater the surface area the greater the power to pick up positively charged particles.According to Robert T. Martins, B.S.,a mineralogist University of Minnesota; Ph.D., Cornell University and Mineralogist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the molecular surface of one gram (1/28th of an ounce ) of Bentonite Clay has a surface area of 800 sq. meters.Things to consider before purchasing clay: Not all clays are the same and not all clays achieve the same results Australian Healing Bentonite Clay contains NO ALUMINIUM (Scientifically tested and confirmed by the CSIRO) Bentonite clay is the only clay recommended for both internal and external use (always ensure you use only 'Food Grade' clay internally) Some clays may be irradiated, heated, contain fillers or potentially be contaminated with other substances.
