Does Your Bentonite Do Enough For You In The Studio?

Recommended Posts

Why not try out some of these recipes and make your Bentonite go further  ;) 

 

Super Easy Cookies 

1 roll Pillsbury's Cookie Dough, any flavor
1/4 cup Calcium Bentonite Dry Powder Clay

Unwrap cookie dough and set it in a bowl at room temperature to soften.  Once softened, mix in the clay.  Place by tablespoons on a cookie sheet, and bake as directed on the package.

 

Don't fancy cookies?

 

Brownies

1 ½ cups unsalted butter 
3 cups white sugar 
2 tsp vanilla 
7 eggs 
1 cup flour 
¼ cup TLC Calcium Bentonite Dry Powder Clay 
1 ¼ cups unsweetened cocoa powder 
1 tsp salt 
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350º F. Line a 9x9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.  In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Remove mixture from heat and beat in the eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mix until combined. Stir in walnuts and spread batter into the pan. Bake at 350º F for 45-50 minutes. Do not over bake.

 

Not so much of a sweet tooth?

 

Beef Stew

2  tablespoons all-purpose flour
1  pound beef or pork stew meat, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
2  tablespoons cooking oil
1/2 cup Calcium Bentonite Liquid Clay
2-1/2  cups cubed potatoes
1  cup frozen cut green beans
1  cup frozen whole kernel corn
1  cup sliced carrot 
1  medium onion, cut into thin wedges
2  teaspoons instant beef bouillon granules
2  teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1  teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2  teaspoon dried marjoram or basil, crushed
1/4  teaspoon pepper
1   bay leaf
2-1/2  cups vegetable juice or hot-style vegetable juice

Place flour in a plastic bag. Add meat cubes and shake until meat is coated with flour. In a large skillet brown half of the meat in 1 tablespoon of the hot oil, turning to brown evenly. Brown remaining meat in remaining oil. Drain off fat.

In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart crockery cooker layer potatoes, green beans, corn, carrot, and onion. Add meat. Add bouillon granules, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, marjoram, pepper, and bay leaf. Pour vegetable juice and liquid clay over all.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender. Discard bay leaf. Ladle into bowls. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

No seriously, why on earth would I eat clay? Is the stuff I buy even vaguely food safe? It must be sterile, or rather it can't be some probiotic thing, cuz who knows what lives in it after production and shipping , storing , shipping. Wow. If anyone knows the benefits for real, please enlighten me.

I used to work in the health food industry. Bentonite is sold as part of various candida cleanses. The principle is that because it's so absorbent, it will suck out all the dead yeast organisms in your intestines that have been killed off by the herbs you took for the last three days, and help your system flush itself. Really what it does is constipate the heck out of anyone who doesn't drink enough water with it. This brings about all kinds of returns to a hapless customer service clerk at the natural foods store who really doesn't want to know the gory details you're sharing with her, but wouldn't ever dream of even speaking to your doctor about.

 

It's also an inert filler in lots of pills.

I once came across a website (quite possible the same one High Bridge found) where the author remarked how well bentonite would be able to suck up all that blood if you happened to cut open your leg with a chainsaw. Who needs doctors?

Why not ingest clay? Have you ever taken kaopectate --

 

The active ingredient in kaopectate has changed since its original creation. Originally, kaolinite was used as the adsorbent and pectin as the emollient. Attapulgite (a type of absorbent clay) replaced the kaolinite in the 1980s, but was found to be unproven as to effectiveness by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in a ruling made in April of 2003. As a consequence, since 2004, bismuth subsalicylate has been used as the active ingredient in U.S. marketed products.[1] In Canada, McNeil Consumer Healthcare continues to market kaopectate using attapulgite as the active ingredient. (From Wikipedia)

 

But, as much as I am interested in things bentonite, I am still wondering if your chewing gum loses its flavor on the bedpost over night?
