The health benefits of ingesting clay

Eating dirt

Use the Earth’s Wisdom:

The more we know and the more tuned in we are to the Earth’s knowledge, the more we can keep our pets happy and healthy. Animals in the wild use instincts to heal themselves, but most domesticated animals are not able to run to the river bank and ingest clay when they need it.

Imagine your animal eats something that makes them sick. The body’s natural defense is to destroy the unknown entity with a flush of acid. Unfortunately, this acid can start to erode the intestines, resulting in vomiting, diarrhea, or more serious conditions such as lymphoma or IBD. When Luxolite (VItality Science’s liquid clay) is given, it’s natural reaction is to soothe the GI tract and bind and expel the toxins.

Geophagia-The deliberate consumption of earth, soil, or clay:

Parrots of southeastern Peru and Jaguars along the Tambopata River in the Amazon crave the earthly delicacy of mud (or clay). Scientist have discovered that clay binds toxins naturally and prevents them from flooding the blood stream. Clay provides essential sodium, magnesium and calcium that may be missing from some diets.

A study out of Cornell University concludes that eating dirt or clay can provide protection from dietary chemicals, parasites and pathogens. Hundreds of species of birds, reptiles and mammals (including 70 primate species) eat small amounts of clay and earth with their food to help with digestion, and provide the body with bio-nutrients such as iron and zinc. When ingested, and when in combination of toxic substances and gastrointestinal distress, acidic compounds are neutralized.

Luxolite consists of pure white Bentonite, a Montmorillonite clay. There are hundreds of varieties of clay available in the world, and not all are ideal for ingestion. White Bentonite has a perfect balance of sodium and calcium, along with other high quality nutrients. These two variables will activate a nutrient compound that neutralizes acid, yeast, fungi, and pathogen overgrowth in the gastrointestinal tract.

A personal story: A few years ago, I gave my dog a can of dog food that was poisoned. She was throwing up, lethargic, and had very loose stools. I gave her (via syringe mixed with water) Luxolite every 15 minutes for 24 hours. It coated her stomach, compensating for the lack of food for that time and bound and expelled the toxins from the poison. She recovered quickly, and is fine to this day. From then on, whenever she gets even a little sick, I give her Luxolite. It reduces the acidity or fungi overgrowth and I can diagnose her symptoms without that factor.

I always have Luxolite on hand. It is a quick, simple, and natural emergency remedy. It does not need to be refrigerated, and has a very long shelf life. It is something that can be given on a daily basis if your pet has a sensitive stomach or undergoing treatments that may be causing stress, more acid release, or a decrease in immunity.

  1. My 18+ year old cat has kidney failure and has gotten very skinny! He seems to still be alert, and happy, but I want to give him super nutrition, that has digestive enzymes, and possibly some flora. I have been giving him Luxolite, which has given him a better appetite, but he doesn’t seem to be getting enough good nutrition.Most commercial wet cat foods have BPA-lined cans, and are low in good protein . Please advise.

  2. I have been having the same issue with my cat Mittens as Betty Eisenhauer speaks of. My cat is also 18 and has just been found to have kidney problems but all other blood work and thyroid work was normal. He has had diarrhea for almost six months now. He is very fuzzy and won’t eat hardly anything, just likes the juice from the food I give him. He was just put on a veterinarian prescribed diet for renal support. Royal Canin. He does not want to eat it. The only thing he wants is Treats, Greenies especially. I was told not to give him treats. I don’t know how long he can go without getting proper nutrition. Do you have any advice?

  3. Dear Becker family,
    May I know what is the difference between your clay products and clay products for humans ?
    And in general, supplements for animals and supplements for humans ?
    I bought a lot of products for my cat and I’m happy with the results, so sometimes I wonder what are the risks for me of using them too…

    • All our products are human grade, but not human approved for humans. We take many of the products. The Luxolite is an especially effective magnesium bentonite. The only precaution is that while animals can take it with food, humans should take it after food by 3 hours and before by one hour. Many people call it miraculous for acid reflux.

  4. My cat is 15 years old. She’s been vomiting after eating on and off for a couple years. Prednisone didn’t seem to help. I’m now feedIng her a 2.5 oz of turkey or chicken baby food, mixed with 1/4 can of high quality cat food, and bone broth. Some day she will vomit 3 to 4x’s. Her stools seem to be fine not loose.
    Would you suggest
    Feline Comfort Plus?
