Clay is a clay mined from an underground clay layer, dried in sunlight and finely crushed. Many clays are dug deep underground on unpolluted river banks. The excavated clay is sun-dried to activate minerals. Clay is rich in abundant earth minerals. Although there is a slight difference depending on where it can be collected, minerals that promote the function of nerves, improve blood flow, activate skin cells, etc. are commonly contained in all clays. Clays on the market are divided into white, red, yellow, pink, green, brown, etc., due to the different colors depending on the minerals contained. Clay therapy is performed by applying a paste that is loosely dissolved in water or oil to the body or face.
Clay has a variety of functions, but its most prominent function is to eliminate toxins. That is, detox. It's because of the basic structure of clay. Clay has a molecular structure like multiple layers of paper. Therefore, in terms of surface area, even a small amount of clay has a very large surface area. For example, the molecular surface area of 1g of clay is a whopping 800㎡. In addition, the surface of the molecule has negative electrons. Since waste and toxins have positive electrons, the power of attracting plus and minus brings a powerful detox effect.
In addition, most clays contain minerals that promote the function of nerves, improve blood flow, and activate skin cells. It is also ideal for removing sebum that has remained on the skin for a long time and oxidized sebum, and horn plugs that can easily block the nose. Oxidized sebum, dirt, and horn plugs are a source of skin problems such as acne, so they have great promise for prevention and improvement. Clay that has a whitening effect is perfect for problems such as acne scars. The complexion will improve, and the dullness will disappear as if drifting. Bears and eyelid shadows due to poor circulation are also thinned by the same effect, so they are perfect as aging care for eyes that tend to look old. The moisturizing power of mud also keeps the skin firm.
Normally we eat food by mouth, but the three essential nutrients, including carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, are the essential minerals contained in food, but the main minerals are calcium, phosphorus, sulfur and potassium , Sodium, magnesium, and chlorine are seven types, and trace minerals are nine types of iron, iodine, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, cobalt, molybdenum, and chromium. There are 16 minerals that are essential for our body.
Clay contains trace minerals. Trace minerals contribute to the normal functioning of our body functions. For example, a lack of iron can lead to anemia, helplessness and loss of appetite. The difficulty is that iron deficiency cannot be justified by taking iron alone or increasing the amount of iron in the diet. Copper, vitamin C, protein, etc. are needed to absorb iron. If these are insufficient, iron will not be absorbed. Gastric acid also plays an important role in iron absorption. It is important to incorporate sourness, fruit vinegar (such as lemon and kabosu) spices and flavored vegetables in cooking to promote the secretion of stomach acid, but it is very difficult to ingest them while maintaining the balance created by the natural world That is the thing. Minerals and nutrients are all balanced by each other. Even if one is missing like a chain loop, this chain loop does not become a loop.
Since ancient times, natural remedies using clay (clay remedies) have been performed around the world. Animals spend clay everyday. They spend their days rubbing the earth's mud, eat the soil as it is, and when they get hurt, they roll around in mud mud to kill bacteria on their bodies. In the human world, ancient Egypt and Rome used clay to treat inflammation, ulcers and fractures. In recent years, there has been a record of French troops taking oral clay treatment for dysentery, and clay compresses were used in medicine in Switzerland and Germany in the early 20th century.
