  • 8 ounces water filtered (not distilled)
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon (or more; see Instruction 5 below) bentonite clay see link for safe source of bentonite clay in Recipe Notes


  • Put bentonite clay and about 2 ounces of filtered water in 2-4 cup mason jar with plastic or coated metal screw-on lid.
  • Shake vigorously (about 60 seconds). Once mixed, add remaining 6 ounces of water. Shake again.
  • Drink immediately; or let sit out overnight and drink in a.m.
  • Follow by drinking additional filtered water.
  • For general detox, use up to 2-1/2 teaspoons bentonite clay daily for 2 weeks, in divided doses, morning and night: about 1-1/4 teaspoons in the morning and the same in the evening. For heavy metal detox, 1-1/4 teaspoons can be taken 3 times daily. For general long term use, 1-1/4 teaspoons can be taken once daily. More may be taken at any point, as desired. Increase gradually.
