Most clay cookware is made with a hint of passion. They have hues of pink, red, orange and other colors. Many are decorated quite festively as if they were made to be admired, yet this admiration is rarely recognized.
Clay cookware is popular among a small group of health enthusiast, but it should be recognized by many. Clay cookware is still used in third world societies; perhaps we should adopt these customs as well.
Contents of Clay: Choose Your Clay
Clay is a type of dirt, to put it in laymen’s terms. Clay is usually composed of three minerals: kaolinite, illite, and montmorillonite. The way these minerals are spread depends on the type of clay cookware you purchase.
Clay cookware is usually made of two types of clays: Red Clay or Terracotta. Both of these clays have the same components, but one may have more minerals than the other. So, if you want more kaolinite , you would choose Terracotta. Wheras Red Clay has more montmorillonite . Both clay choices offer enticing health benefits.
No matter what kind of clay cookware you purchase, you will enhance your health. When you cook in your clay pot or pan, you will slowly release enough clay particles into your food to help clean out your system.
The minerals within clay are negatively charged, and they are active when they make contact with water. This contact will occur either with the moisture from your food, or when these minerals are consumed. Your stomach has enough moisture to ignite the benefits of clay.
The energy from the minerals will give a boost to many of the cells within your body, which should give you energy. This energy will revamp your overall cellular activity. The natural negative magnetism will also pull waste or toxins from your body, and these toxins will be eliminated through your — ahem, bodily functions. But each mineral within the clay has a different function.
Illite : Stay Free of Bacteria
The illite within clay is a powerful antibacterial agent that will definitely be helpful. It is quite selective as well. When you intake the right amount of clay, your body will be able to get rid of harmful bacteria growth.
Why should a selective antibacterial agent matter to you? Many antibacterial medicines attack the bacteria within your body. You do not want this effect, because your body needs beneficial bacteria. Good bacteria are present to protect you from colon cancer, assist in proper digestion and to battle Candida infestations.
Montmorillonite : For Sight and For Bones
Cooking in clay cookware will also release the montmorillonite mineral. This mineral has an important role in keeping your eyes functional. So, if you wear glasses or have been taking steps to improve your eyesight, you will benefit greatly from Red Clay cookware.
This mineral will also release enough calcium to help keep those strong bones of yours in good condition. If you have children, you will also help them develop good, strong bones.
Kaolinite : Blood Loves to Sail Smoothly
Kaolinite is another component of clay that you should pay attention to. It has the ability to increase blood flow, as well as release and attract toxins. Toxins in your blood stream create a sluggish flow, and kaolinite is there to soften the load. This mineral will get your blood stream back on track.
Cooking in clay cookware should restore that beautiful rhythm that your body has been longing for — that rhythm that makes your cells move as they should. The toxins within you should be removed before they cause irreparable damage.
