Clay (Argila chlora), more specific, Green Clay, is a sediment which over thousands of years accumulated in the Acquitaine region north of the french capital Paris (the so called Acquitaine basin). Clay in more general terms includes many combinations of one or more clay minerals with traces of metal oxides and organic matter. Geologic clay deposits are mostly composed of phyllosilicate minerals containing variable amounts of water trapped in the mineral structure.

Clays exhibit plasticity when mixed with water in certain proportions. When dry, clay becomes firm and when fired in a kiln, permanent physical and chemical changes occur. Because of these properties, clay is used for making pottery items, both utilitarian and decorative, and construction products.

Green Clay has unique medicinal properties for treatment of disorders of the digestive tract. On a pH scale it is rather basic, due to rich contents in essential minerals and trace elements. These compounds ‘embalm’ and protect the inner linings of stomach and intestines, which is very soothing with, and even prevents, ulcers and colics. Aplied externally (skin, joints), it can soothe swellings and inflammations.

The pharmaceutical industry is spending vast sums on advertising for antacid products; however, none of these chemical ‘blockers’ come even close to the naturlly beneficial properties green clay can provide.

History: Traditional use of clay as a remedy, used both internally and externally, goes back to prehistoric times. In ancient Egypt, Clay gathered from the Nile delta was mixed with other substances to embalm the dead. In ancient Rome, mud baths with Clay were very popular, and during the war torn 19th century, the soldiers of both the french and russian armies were given green clay (mixed with mustard) to prevent digestive disorders.


Take 2-6 capsules daily, with plenty of water.
