Detoxificant No. 7 Description from Sonne's Organic Foods
Our Detoxificant is a natural and powerful detoxicant derived from bentonite, a mineral-rich volcanic clay. For centuries, native tribes around the world have recognized and benefited from the healing properties of bentonite clay in internal and external applications. In the early 20th century, bentonite clay was used by the British Army in India to treat acute bacterial food poisoning and in China to help treat cholera. 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, montmorillonite ("mont-mor-ill-o-nite"). This procedure places montmorillonite 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.) Montmorillonite possesses the ability to adsorb about 40 times its own weight in positively charged substances present in the alimentary canal. Because montmorillonite has such strong adsorptive properties and is not digested, it tightly binds 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.

Purified Water and Bentonite Clay
SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING
For average adult, 1 tablespoon. For others, 1 teaspoon for each 50 lb. body weight. Take 2 doses per day. The first one in water upon rising, the other in the evening. Drink plenty of water with this product - at least one glass of water between meals to assist elimination of acid and toxic waste through the kidneys. May be taken for a duration as long as desired.
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
