Magic Clay – the many uses for Green Clay and why every animal owner needs it

Green Clay has amazing drawing properties and can be used both for consumption and topically to encourage healing.

In nature, animals will often choose to drink muddy water rather than clean water as the mud has therapeutic properties.

Green Clay has been used for thousands of years for promoting health in animals and humans.

The best clays are found 40-60 meters below the ground surface and contain only natural materials with no chemical additives.

They are rich in magnesium and trace elements, iron oxide and organic plant matter which give clay its nutritional benefits for detoxification and to maintain and support the mineral levels in the body.

Used internally, the clay will absorb toxins in the body, immobilize them and pass out of the body with the toxins attached.

Used topically, the clay helps prevent infections and provide a protective layer for the wound. It helps stop festering and encourages formation of new healthy skin.

Our 100% natural Green Clay contains magnesium, selenium, calcium, potassium, silica, manganese, phosphorous, silicon, copper, aluminium and zinc.
