Cholacol - $14.50 for 90 tablets
Indications: Toxic bowel, constipation, intestinal detoxification and ileocecal valve (open) problem.
Commentary: The use of natural clay as cleansing and adsorbing agents has been used throughout history. Calcium bentonite is a montmorillonite clay capable of adsorbing 200 times its weight in fluid. Montmorillonite is the substance in soil that helps the ground retain its moisture and prevent water from sinking too low into the subsoil. These clay molecules are too large to pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. Therefore they attract and bind up waste fluids in the gut, which will be eliminated when the bowel evacuates. Therefore the value of this substance is as a binding detoxifier.
