Detoxificant No. 7 Description from Sonne's Organic Foods
Our Detoxificant is a natural and powerful detoxificant derived from bentonite, a mineral-rich volcanic clay. We use a special process to refine the raw bentonite clay to remove mica, dirt and other impurities, in order to concentrate the active detoxifying ingredient, Bentonite.* This procedure places Bentonite into a colloidal suspension and retains its innate negative charge. These properties allow the powerful adsorption (physical binding) of positively charged substances. (Most metabolic, environmental, and chemical wastes are positively charged.) Bentonite possesses the ability to adsorb about 40 times its own weight in positively charged substances present in the alimentary canal. Because Bentonite has such strong adsorptive properties and is not digested, it tightly binds toxic material to be excreted.
A perfect accompaniment to #7 Detoxificant is our #9 Intestinal Cleanser. Mixed together in juice, this Cleansing Drink offers the scrubbing and roughage benefits from soluble and insoluble fiber from psyllium, and the detoxification properties of bentonite.

Adults, add 1 tablespoon to 8 ounces of water and then consume it once a day. May be taken for a duration as long as required to support the kidneys in detoxifying the body. Do not consume within 30 minutes of food and 1.5 hours from consuming another supplement or taking medication. Not intended for and should not be taken by: (1) children, or (2) women of childbearing age.
Since bentonite, the main ingredient in #7 with its active constituent, montmorillonite, has such strong adsorptive powers, its consumption could render unavailable some of the necessary nutrients, such as certain vitamins, by adsorbing them from the alimentary canal. However, independent experiments purposely designed to find out how much this adsorption would adversely affect the growth and health of experimental animals indicated no ill effects when the intake of bentonite was 25% of the total diet, but did adversely affect the health when the intake of bentonite was increased to 50% of the total diet. (From Annals of the N.Y. Academy of Science, Vol. 57, page 678, May 10, 1954.) Since our product is mostly water with only a small portion of bentonite, to reach this state of toxicity it would mean projecting the results of this experiment so that a person would have to consume each day a supply designed for 1032 days. In other words, mathematically for the bentonite in our product t
