Daily Splash: Drinking Clay—The Celebrity Detox Trend
We’ve all heard how far celebrities will go to stay trim, but some techniques are downright bizarre. The latest in detox diets is digesting clay.
It all started when 22-year-old Shailene Woodley, star of Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars, raved a few months back to talk-show host David Letterman about the substance's all-natural cleansing benefits. Then, this summer, Zoë Kravitz admitted that drinking clay helped her lose 20 pounds for her role in The Road Within.
Not so fast, Bikini Girls. This doesn’t mean you should start consuming your every-day clay face mask. Only food-grade clay is legit, otherwise you’re facing a whole lot of stomach problems.
But if you can get your hands on the good stuff (celebrities are fans of the bentonite clay), the solution has been known to cleanse the liver, ridding the body of impurities, as well as to aid in weight loss and boost the immune system.
