I ordered some pascalite clay tooth powder in my quest to heal my 2yo's cavities and I noticed on the paperwork they sent in the package that a lot of people seem to have success taking it internally for various ailments. I also saw that 1/2 tsp is supposed to have 150% of RDA of iron, which caught my eye as my son has been supplemented with iron on and off and hates the taste of everything I've tried.

Google informs me that pascalite clay is composed of 4.4% aluminum (compared to about 1% iron). Is that really supposed to be safe for internal consumption?

Thoughts/experience?

Very safe. The amounts are tiny and we use it whenever there are any digestive ailments. I've been using it for many years (maybe 7 or 8? I don't recall) and it is incredibly useful to have around.
