Applications of medicinal clay have proven to be quite helpful inhibiting bacterial activity.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
Zion Health, a California-based maker of popular clay-based toothpaste for gum problems, organic shampoo, soaps and detox treatments announced today that New Leaf Community Markets at 5667 Silver Creek Valley Road in San Jose will carry its new line of natural body care products. The key ingredient in Zion Health’s natural home remedies is Calcium Montmorillonite Clay, “Kanwa”, an effective detoxifier that has been used to treat wounds, acne, dry skin, wrinkles, stomach ulcers, and a variety of other ailments.
The benefits of Kanwa have been known since Native Americans and Aboriginal medicine men first discovered its healing qualities generations ago. Kanwa is now attracting the interest of the scientific community with recent MIT and NASA-sponsored research confirming the healing and beneficial qualities of this native home remedy.
Kanwa clay contains small particles as a result of the natural crystallization process making it easy for the body to absorb. The clay’s negative charge gives it the ability to absorb or attract positively charged toxic matter. Kanwa is also touted by homeopathic practitioners and known in the scientific community for its bacteriostatic properties. An article published by Ronald Whitmont, MD in May of 2008 entitled ‘MRSA and Its Treatment’ states: “Applications of medicinal clay have proven to be quite helpful inhibiting bacterial activity.”
