Great Plains Bentonite Detox
- Alimentary Detoxification
- Maximum Activity
- Maximum Purity
Great Plains® Bentonite provides strong detoxification in the digestive tract, with the ability to bind herbicides, viruses and other potentially harmful substances by adsorbent action. Great Plains Bentonite is specially formulated to provide the maximum benefits of bentonite. Bentonite's mechanism of action is physical, due to its colloidal structure and charged particles, which allow it to bind with toxins in the stomach, small intestine and colon. It is not digested, nor is it absorbed into the bloodstream. Since toxins are bound to the bentonite, they are excreted from the body when the bentonite is eliminated through bowel movements.*
Bentonite (also known as montmorillonite) is a natural clay mineral of volcanic origin, created from volcanic ash deposits that are millions of years old. Some of the largest - and highest quality - deposits of bentonite occur in the Great Plains area of the United States. Bentonite is made of microscopic rectangular clay platelets, that when properly hydrated in water form a porous "house of cards" structure with an enormous surface area.
Great Plains Bentonite has maximum activity through special selection and processing to ensure an enhanced surface area and optimum adsorption. Studies have shown that maximum binding and removal of toxins occurs only with the rare naturally occurring sodium ion form of bentonite containing a specific range of exchangeable sodium ions. Using advanced processing methods, the special bentonite used in Great Plains has a huge surface area up to 960 square yards per tablespoon serving. To put that in perspective, a quart bottle of Great Plains Bentonite contains over 12 football fields of surface area!
Great Plains Bentonite has maximum purity. There are many different grades of bentonite, primarily designed for industrial uses. Yerba Prima uses only USP/NF pharmaceutical grade bentonite that has been through a natural four-step purification process. This not only ensures that the bentonite is ultra-pure, but also contributes to the light color and strong activity of Great Plains Bentonite.
Bentonite has an unusual property you will notice when you open the bottle. After complete hydration, it becomes very thick and viscous when it sits for a while. If shaken or stirred, the bentonite can be poured, which is why the instructions say "Shake well before using." It will become thick once again if allowed to sit undisturbed.
Yerba Prima gives consumers a choice of pint or quart bottles. The pint bottle is shatter resistant amber PET plastic, and the quart bottle is amber glass.
Suggested Use: Shake well before using. For daily use, take 1 tablespoonful with liquid once or twice a day on an empty stomach. For short term use, up to one week, take 1 tablespoonful with liquid every two hours. Drink additional fluid during the day.
For serious conditions, consult a health professional before use. In case of intestinal discomfort during use, reduce amount used or discontinue usage.

Yerba Prima believes in making high quality products that are pure and natural, and are made only from premium quality ingredients.
Yerba Prima has pioneered significant advances in health enhancing products, including natural dietary fiber, internal cleansing, standardized herbs and preservative-free aloe vera juice.
The company was founded in 1980 by a group of health conscious individuals in Northern California who were learning about the benefits of internal cleansing. However, the high quality herbs and fiber that they needed were not readily available. Because of this need, the original Internal Cleansing Program was introduced in 1980.
Since that time, Yerba Prima has continued to develop, manufacture and market a range of fiber and internal cleansing products that are of the highest quality, are natural and that respond to the needs of health conscious individuals. Yerba Prima is the only company that manufactures a complete range of all-natural fiber and internal cleansing products.
After many years in Oakland, California, the company relocated to a custom designed corporate office and manufacturing facility in beautiful Ashland, Oregon, in 1991.Yerba prima is registered both as a food manufacturer and as an Over-The-Counter Drug Manufacturer. Manufacturing takes place in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) that are stricter than normal industry standards, to ensure the safety, purity and efficacy of all Yerba Prima products.
Extensive testing is done at each step of the manufacturing process, beginning with testing of all incoming ingredients and packaging materials used in Yerba Prima products. Additional microbiological, chemical and physical tests take place during and after each manufacturing cycle to ensure product quality.
