like everybody here I am concerned about lead in Pascalite. I am waiting from the company to call me back. I have done some reading on this subject. Here is original FDA site:
1)it is "Voluntary: Firm Initiated" tests
2)only some lots/batches are recalled
For Pascalite powder "Lot numbers imprinted or hand written include: 2010M; and D10 through 12 with a
noted OT,U,V, or W. The code information is found on the bottom of the product."
I have A13 written on the bottom of the bottle. I had 6 bottles, now 2,5 bottles left, 16oz each.
I am still worried somewhat and definitely will investigate this issue for my own peace of mind.
I still think it is a very good clay and since I am one of very the few people (at least on this forum), who used 5 different clays and can compare them, how effective each of them are and how they work for colitis specifically.
Terramin clay is a very good clay also but specifically for colitis, at least for me, I think Pascalite is more effective. Living clay is even stronger, especially for a severe diarrhea. Another good clay is French Green Illite clay. One thing everybody need to understand, we are all different and have some other factors and health issues accompanying our colitis. It could be infections, yeast/fungus overgrowth, low immune system caused by other diseases or steroids/immunosuppressant drugs, mineral/vitamin deficiency.... All of these will effect the result of using clay and which clay will work better. Just as different drugs work better for different people, different diets are better for some and not others, different herbal supplements effect differently everybody, just as clays will give different results....
As for the clay or activated charcoal for yeast/fungus.
Yes, it will work very well. I have used both. I would not use Zeolite though, it is the most processed, heated clay from all and the least effective. At least according to what I have read about it.
Please, do more research on this subject.
The best activated charcoal is from coconut shell for removing toxins/fungus. At one point I mixed 1 teaspoon of Pascalite with 1 teaspoon of activated charcoal powder with 16oz of water, let it settle and drank this clay-charcoal water during the day. It made me feel better, since I was in a bad flair at that time.
As soon as I hear from Pascalite company I will post the result of my conversation.
