Natural Clay Plaster: Negative Ions & Health
The true advantage of American Clay Earth Plaster is the significant health benefits inherent in natural clay. The dense molecular structure and shape of the clay give your walls the ability to “breathe,” sending good-for-you negative ions into the air to offset the electromagnetic effect given off by the computers, appliances and synthetic plastics in your home. These negative ions are important to human life for their ability to utilize oxygen, which elevates energy and feelings of well-being, while alleviating stress and depression. The “breathing” nature of American Clay stands alone among competitors currently on the market.
American Clay Earth Plaster is also an excellent choice for chemically or allergy sensitive individuals. The negative ions eliminate static, clumping particles together in the air and keeping the walls clear of dust. The non-toxic, natural clay plaster also helps to filter pollen and dander, making American Clay a perfect alternative for individuals with allergies and other respiratory conditions.
