The clays minerals are negatively charged whereas toxins are positively charged, hence the clays attraction works like a magnet, attracting and leaching toxins out of the body.
When mixed with water, bentonite swells up (this is imperceptible to the naked eye) and becomes very porous like a sponge. The electrical and molecular components change and produce an electrical charge. The toxins are drawn into these spaces by electrical attraction and bound fast. Bentonite cannot be reabsorbed by the body so is completely safe with no side effects and very effective at removing all these unwanted toxins.

Common components are montmorillonite, kaolinite and attapulgite. Small amounts of other minerals may be present in fuller's earth deposits, including calcite, dolomite, and quartz. In some localities fuller's earth refers to calcium bentonite, which is altered volcanic ash composed mostly of montmorillonite.
