Green clay: better than chemical medicines?
Clayer is the opposite of the chemical medicines which can destroy healthy tissues and both beneficial and bacterias. Our french green clay allows healing to take place at a natural rate. It contains active minerals that possess analgesic properties effective in relieving tissues by decongesting the affected area.
Here the study made by our supplier at the CHU Lyon (Clinic specialized on the skin) about our French Green Clay:
Made on the inflammation and the various phases of the wound healing of gingival. The model used was primary human cells of oral mucosa (fibroblasts and keratinocytes).
Anti-inflammatory effects and actions at the various healing stages:
The 3 phases of healing were investigated:
PHASE 1: The inflammatory phase: following-up the secretion of TNF-alpha and interleukin 1
PHASE 2: The repair phase of mesenchymal tissues underlying: following-up the synthesis of type I collagen and monitoring the migration of fibroblasts
The results of this study show that our french green clay has anti-inflammatory effects and actions at the various healing stages:
THE UNIQUE COMPOSITION OF OUR CLAY
55-65 % Illite – 10-15% Kaolin – 5-10% Montmorillonite (known as Bentonite Clay)
What is illite clay ?
IIllite is a group of closely related non-expanding clay minerals. Illite is a secondary mineral precipitate.
What is kaolin clay ?
Kaolin acts as a protective coating for the mouth to decrease pain associated with radiation-induced damage.
We are the only company with access to this French Green Clay in the USA as we have an exclusive agreement with our supplier.
The composition of minerals:
Our 100% Natural French green clay contains essential minerals. The body absorbs those minerals that it needs to maintain health & vigor. Because we want to be transparent with you, here the list of the minerals found in our French Green Clay:
Silicon – 20.2 %
Silicon is an essential ingredient for stronger bones, better skin and more flexible joints.
The human body contains approximately 7 grams of silicon, which is present in various tissues and body fluids. The silicon in tissues is usually bonded to glycoproteins such as cartilage, whereas the silicon in blood is almost entirely found as either free orthosilicic acid or linked to small compounds.
Calcium – 3900 mg/kg
Calcium is a mineral that is necessary for life, mostly find in the bentonite clay. In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium enables our blood to clot, our muscles to contract, and our heart to beat.
Every day, we lose calcium through our skin, nails, hair, sweat, and more. Our bodies cannot produce its own calcium. That’s why it’s important to get enough calcium. When we don’t get the calcium our body needs, it is taken from our bones. This is fine once in a while, but if it happens too often, bones get weak and easier to break.
Iron – 3300 mg/kg
Iron is an essential mineral. “The major reason we need it is that it helps to transport oxygen throughout the body,” says Paul Thomas, EdD, RD, a scientific consultant to the National Institutes of Health, Office of Dietary Supplements.
Potassium – 2900 mg/kg
Potassium is an important mineral that functions as an electrolyte. It helps regulate fluid balance, nerve signals and muscle contractions. Our clay is rich in Potassium thanks to its composition of bentonite clay.
Magnesium – 1600 mg/kg
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heart beat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aid in the production of energy and protein
Phosphorus – 930 mg/kg
Phosphorus works with calcium to help build bones. You need the right amount of both calcium and phosphorus for bone health. Phosphorus also plays an important structural role in nucleic acids and cell membranes. And it’s involved in the body’s energy production. Your body absorbs less phosphorus when calcium levels are too high, and vice versa.
Manganese – 400 mg/kg
Manganese is predominantly stored in the bones, liver, kidney, and pancreas. It aids in the formation of connective tissue, bones, blood-clotting factors, and sex hormones and plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation.
Molybdenum – 0.54 mg/kg
The molybdenum cofactor activates four essential enzymes, which are biological molecules that drive chemical reactions in the body. Below are the four enzymes: Sulfite oxidase: Converts sulfite to sulfate, preventing the dangerous buildup of sulfites in the body
Sodium – 330 mg/kg
Sodium is an essential electrolyte that helps maintain the balance of water in and around your cells. Found in the bentonite clay in our product. It’s important for proper muscle and nerve function. It also helps maintain stable blood pressure levels. Insufficient sodium in your blood is also known as hyponatremia.
Zinc – 85 mg/kg
Zinc is a nutrient that people need to stay healthy. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells
Chromium – 53 mg/kg
Chromium is an essential trace mineral that canimprove insulin sensitivity and enhance protein, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism.
Copper – 18 mg/kg
Copper is an essential nutrient for the body. Together with iron, it enables the body to form red blood cells. It helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function, and it contributes to iron absorption. Sufficient copper in the diet may help prevent cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis, too.
Selenium – 0.93 mg/kg
Selenium is a nutrient that the body needs to stay healthy.Selenium is important for reproduction, thyroid gland function, DNA production, and protecting the body from damage caused by free radicals and from infection.
