TERRAMIN®, make no mistake, is a Premium Calcium Montmorillonite Clay. Though it is sometimes called, by name, Calcium Bentonite. To the truth seeker searching for an edible clay, the differences between a Montmorillonite and a Bentonite are significant and go far beyond the grouping together, by name, of the two different species of Smectite clay.
Wise consumers looking for a safe and effective edible clay, will research the differences between Bentonite and Montmorillonite to discover the Science that makes Premium Montmorillonite clays the most logical choice , between the two, for an EDIBLE CLAY or EDIBLE MINERALS product.
The properties that differentiate the two clays will lead educated consumers to this conclusion. It is clear when they discover the importance of a fully formed crystal lattice structure and its link to surface area, molecular particle size, (not mesh size), Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC), and the importance of the ratio and distribution of the minerals in a clay suitable for human ingestion
These properties are critical when evaluating a clay’s efficiency in delivering minerals to a body. If the minerals are not in a clay in a proper proportion and ratio, internal organs are left wanting. If the particle size of the clay is too large, as is the case of most true Bentonites, there is no mineral benefit.
If the Cation Exchange is too weak to survive the gut milieu or if the surface area is lacking due to poorly formed crystal lattice structure of the molecule there is very little detoxification benefit, other than a thorough scrubbing of the intestines. Since Bentonite swells to twice the size of TERRAMIN, the larger bulk passing through the intestines tends to scrub the intestines. However, the question remains. How effective is an intestinal scrub for overall health, especially if bacteria, pathogens and toxins, remain in internal organs?
It sounds a bit complicated but if you consider a simpler analogy of two different building structures being constructed to survive earthquakes. Since Bentonite is used to make Bricks, let’s call the Bentonite building, "B Clay" and its structure is a brick and wooden structure built on soil placed on a standard concrete slab. When finished, it looks great from the outside.
The second building represents Montmorillonite. This one we will call, "M Clay". M Clay is built on soil but the slab is created using steel reinforced concrete with the ideal ratio of water to sand ratio and with the proper admixtures to increase its strength. M Clay is also built using base isolation. The building is separated from the foundation by a suspension system of springs and bearings, lead cylinder cores that are layered and wrapped by rubber, all intended to increase ductility. It is finished using a brick exterior veneer. When finished, it looks great from the outside.
Which building will most likely survive an earthquake; “B clay” or "M Clay?" The obvious answer is the building with the best foundation materials and building design. The same holds true when you compare many Bentonites to Montmorillonites. When we choose an edible clay we want to be sure we are getting one that has the right materials. Always search to find the exact properties of an edible clay prior to taking it internally. Most clays are safe topically, but only a few are effective internally.
Consider this truth when selecting an edible clay. The daily “earthquakes” that our bodies experience with exposure to environmental toxins, and the lack of available quality building materials and toxins in processed food sources are reasons enough to select the better built structure. TERRAMIN is the highest quality edible minerals, with the strongest structure in particle size, perfectly formed crystal lattice structured surface area and a super -sized Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC). Try TERRAMIN for yourself and feel the difference.
Human Bodies were built to be fully self-contained processing plants, ideally suited for its own survival. Due to population pressure and its demand for more and more food from inadequate farmland availability is causing a deficiency in the food fuels humans need for optimum health. Industrialization and Technological advancement places humans in a toxic environment that steals our health. The need for selective, supplemental detoxification is real. Edible minerals are a real boost to our systems.
With over 8,000,000.000 people on Earth, vying for food and better living conditions, there is incredible pressure on Governments to provide for their people. Over farming the limited farmlands is a short term solution, GMO’s and more thorough food processing provide another short term answer. Sadly, these short term solutions create long term negative health conditions. Supplementation, with our natural products will fill in some of the health gaps that occur in the current environment of nutritionally void farmlands, artificial food production and processing methods. TERRAMIN will detoxify and add missing mineral nutrients. You receive two benefits in one product. These values are available for every user.
TERRAMIN brings back to the body the minerals that are not available any longer in current food sources and due to its unique structure helps the body rid itself of many of the toxins or the environment and the chemical toxicity found in processed foods.
TERRAMIN alone is not the answer to the ills of an overcrowded world yet it can be an answer for some of the deficiencies caused from the way we are currently dealing with these world pressures. Perhaps TERRAMIN can be an answer for an individual looking to do the best they can in the situation we all face. Using TERRAMIN will be a huge step is the path to keep healthy in a very complex world.
