When talking about diarrhea, the official Gastroenterology says, “The use of clay is interesting, because it consists of pure or mixed silicates that are mostly aluminum, which gives clay absorbing properties. This quality explains the long history of use of clay in traditional medicine for digestive diseases in the Mediterranean area (geophagia)”. In acute diarrhea, absorbency is particularly effective in relation to bacterial or viral toxins, food, drugs, and bile salts that may affect the integrity of the intestinal mucosa and cause diarrhea. These substances are mechanically kept away from the mucosa and taken away (adsorbed) by clay. Other interesting uses of clay involve diarrhea in irritable bowel and “short bowel” syndromes.
