Dear Aphex,

Renew Life has been monitoring radionucleotides ever since the tsunami that hit Japan a few years ago. We have found no evidence of a concern in our formulas.

As part of the quality and purity checks for products containing Kaolin Clay is radioactive activity checked?  I agree that Kaolin Clay is highly effective, I'm just hoping to alleviate concerns around the clay absorbing things which aren't good for internal consumption.

Hi Aphex,

We really can't comment on why kaolin clay was removed from Kaopectate. We don't have any information on that.

And you are correct that it's highly absorptive which is why it's so helpful in DiarrheaStop. We always test our formulas for quality and purity so they are safe to consume.

I've read that since Kaolin Clay is highly absorbent it often contains radioactive isotopes, see here for a summary: http://www.realmilkpaint.com/article-kaolinclay.html.  Is this why Kaolin Clay was removed from the original Kaopectate? Should I be concerned with consuming Renew Life products which contain Kaolin Clay such as Diarrhea Stop?
