Hello and Welcome to our site. We are in process of reviewing and updating content and resources. We will activate our webstore with a revised ordering setup as soon as possible.
This clay was organic before we were organisms. Organic molecules began forming in the primordial "soup" of elements as the earth was coalescing. Calcium elements in the molecules were building blocks of the life-friendly foods which became the bio-available base providing for evolution of basic primitive life.
Montana Bentonite harvests all-natural minerals from our own resource. We are Licensed, Permitted, Bonded and insured. We produce our products ourselves. We are a small family-owned operation. From this we hope that our friends, our clients, our customers will have assurance that we not only are directly involved in and responsible for what we make, but also that we care about what we deliver and what we say or represent about our products.
Our standard ordering procedure will be to set up a customer account with an initial order, then we can ship without check-cashing delay for subsequent orders.
We will post our snail-mail Order Form on each of the products and materials pages. We do this so that both you and we will be more safe by virtue of not participating in the "card-not-present" transaction process.
It is also important to understand that the confusion over calcium bentonite and sodium bentonite continues. We research other sites presenting these materials and it distresses us that so many of these misrepresent their material and product offerings. Many do not provide any information at all of any good use. I am skeptical enough to believe that they do this on purpose: they can buy cheap sodium bentonite and resell it for more by simply not telling buyer what that person is getting.
As we work to upgrade and update our webstore, please also be aware that things will not be just perfect in the transition. There is much to be done and we are not just the best at these things. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Calcium Bentonite, the "Mineral of a Thousand Uses" is the original bio-available organic, chelated and colloidal mineral clay.
"The term 'bioavailability' attempts to include in a single concept the effect of a sequence of metabolic events, i.e., digestibility, solubilization, absorption, organ uptake and release, enzymatic transformation, secretion and excretion."

"Jesus healed the blind with it. Dams are patched with it. The Native Americans used it for money. The Russians capped Chernobyl with it after the nuclear plant melted down. NASA feeds it to astronauts to prevent osteoporosis.In a culture that worships high-tech, "scientific" medicine, let me make the following sacrilegious statement: Clay is the most versatile, profoundly effective, cheap, mysterious, underrated, covered-up health treatment available.: Julie Crist, M. Ac. "Clay: The Healing Underground"
As we continue our practice of setting up in-house accounts for our customers. We accept the standard forms of written checks for initial purchases. With each new purchase we set up a record so that every subsequent purchase up to that amount does not get delayed waiting for the check to clear at the bank. We ship the ordered goods without delay and as long as a customer's check does clear, all is well. We have never been disappointed in this. We have order forms available for printout and mailing, also, if this may be easier for you.
Montana Bentonite, LLC is a member of The Clay Minerals Society (www.cms.org). This is THE resource for scientific and emprically-validated information on clay minerals of all types. It is very important to have this professional body for information and documentation that we can have confidence in.
