Clay comes from the decomposition of mineral species by the action of atmospheric agents. The minerals it contains are usually almost always the same, although the proportions (and in some cases certain elements) can change according to the soil from which is extracted. All minerals in the foods we consume are absorbed from the earth, we need not lose touch with that source, preventive and curative care, full of all the vital principles. Then we make a detailed description of some of the minerals it contains and their healing properties.
Clay contains silica mineral that strengthens the body's elastic tissues such as skin, tendons and tissues of the cardiovascular system. This mineral is also a good "glue" in the body, which makes the clay very effective to play a role in the skeletal system (fractures, tears, sprains, strains) in the vascular system, respiratory, etc. For its silica content, the clay is recommended for various ailments especially in cases of difficult growth, delays or problems with teeth, in case of demineralization, atherosclerosis, aging, arthritis, diabetes, etc.

Magnesium is a general tonic, regenerative for cell and balances system, it is a good antiseptic for internal and external. Strengthens the body's defense system. Its deficiency in the body produces various imbalances such as excessive irritability, cardiovascular accidents, and so on.

Calcium has benefits for the teeth, tendons and blood balance. It is indicated in cases of excessive fatigue, and lung problems for the nervous system. To maintain calcium, it may be needed phosphorus, vitamins D and C, fluorine, copper and magnesium. Calcium is also necessary for blood clotting.
