Clay is everywhere: for centuries, it's been used to make pots, bricks, instruments and as a natural sealant. At its most basic, it's nothing more than dirt, but there exist special types of "healing" clays that can be used to treat the effects of environmental toxins. Here, we'll tell you a little more about the science associated with one of these clays: Calcium Montmorillonite (a.k.a. Kanwa), which is what we use to make all our products.
Kanwa is scientifically termed Calcium Montmorillonite. Chemical Analysis detemines Kanwa contains 90 trace minerals in a uniquely balanced proportion, that is healthy for the body.
Scientists are now discovering the superior healing properties contained in Kanwa to help fight infections, absorb harmful bacteria, stimulate cellular energy, and help reverse bone decay.
NASA and MIT sponsored research have both concluded KANWA contains a unique combination of essential minerals that can serve many benefits to the human body. It has the ability to absorb bacterial toxins, and regenerate healthy growth.
Benefits of Kanwa
Kanwa Tablets help absorb toxins from the environment, unhealthy foods, heavy metals, harmful bacteria and free radicals. Free Radicals are an atom or group of atoms that has at least one unpaired electron and is therefore unstable and highly reactive.
In animal tissues, free radicals can damage cells and are believed to accelerate the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and age-related diseases.
Medical Science Benefits
Hospitals in Europe use clay to neutralize the stomach from toxic overdose.
Benjamin H. Ershoff, Ph.D., submitted evidence to NASA showing Montmorillonite to improve bone formation and growth. NASA Astronauts started consuming Montmorillonite tablets in the 1960's.
German Scientist, Julius Stumpf, described the curative properties of clay to almost instaneously stop bacterial growth.
Kanwa Mineral Content
Trace Minerals activate the enzyme systems and biological functions that underlie nearly every manifestation of life.
All of the evidence over a period of ten years demonstrated most excellent results from use of this particular deposit of Montmorillonite. In our estimation, this product has far reaching qualities which have not been explored.

Research The curative properties are founded in its special characteristic, above all in the distribution of its minute particles. Individual clay particles are smaller than many bacteria. If infected mucous membranes are more or less flooded with clay, the bacteria are completely surrounded by clay particles and are thus separated from their source of nourishment and become imbedded in the igorganic material. Growth and the survivability of the bacteria are thus halted almost instantaneously. -German Scientist
Kanwa for Consumption Kanwa can be taken to charge the immune system during an ongoing disease, and it can also be taken as a preventative, to help ward off any potential ailments. If we want to keep healthy, we need to keep our immune system functioning at its best. Kanwa contains minerals and nutrients that the defense mechanism needs. -Clay Cure by Ran Knishinsky
The Physical Application of Kanwa Kanwa possesses a natural antibacterial action as well as an antiseptic action. Therefore, for just about any skin ailment, Kanwa will stop the growth of bacteria, prevent decay, and arrest the development of microorganisms. This is why, for example, it is so effective in the treatment pf acne, boils, and wounds. Also, Kanwa packs may be useful as an auxiliary remedy for healing broken bones, strains, and sprains, because they are said to help reconstruct damaged tissue. -Clay Cure by Ran Knishinsky
