VitaClay may look like another high-tech kitchen appliance, but inside is an unglazed clay pot instead of aluminum  (heavy metal).  For years, I have been cooking mostly with stainless steel or ceramic and avoiding the use of aluminum cookware. However, my trusted rice cooker is the only appliance/cookware I still owned that had aluminum. VitaClay changed all that for me.  No more heavy metals or toxins to deal with.

Good health depends in part on having adequate amounts of essential nutritional elements, and low levels of toxic elements.   Essential elements are essential because they are needed to maintain health. For example, potassium and sodium are essential for proper heart function, while calcium and magnesium are essential for bone development.  Toxic elements usually cause damage by taking the place of essential elements and interfering with their usual function. For example, calcium helps strengthen bone, but lead can take the place of calcium in bone, making bone more porous and less sturdy.

As a rice cooker, it does an amazing job.  No more babysitting the stove, you can actually start the process and go about your business without the fear of burning your rice.  The other great thing about the VitaClay is that you can also use it as a slow cooker, soup maker, yogurt maker, bone broth,  and more.

Here are some of my favorite recipes that I now prepare in the Vitaclay.

Lentil Stew

Barley and Lentil Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Quinoa and Sweet Potato Chili


Wondering what health problems can come from Toxic elements (heavy metals)?

  • Anxiety/Depression: Both lead and mercury toxicity can contribute to symptoms of depression. Arsenic and mercury have been associated with symptoms of anxiety.
  • Memory Impairment: Lead toxicity can impair long term memory and cause confusion. Cadmium may also cause confusion.
    Heart disease: Antimony toxicity may damage the heart. Cadmium toxicity increases blood pressure and may also damage heart muscle. Lead has been shown to increase blood pressure.
  • Neurological problems: Arsenic toxicity causes numbness and tingling in the feet and hands. Extremely high levels of bismuth may also cause neurological problems like muscle twitches, tremors or convulsions.
  • Fatigue: Mild toxicity with any of the toxic elements can contribute to symptoms of fatigue

Worried about heavy metal toxicity?  Hair analysis is what I recommend at Oasis Health to help determine if heavy metals are causing any health related conditions.  Book an appointment for your hair analysis kit.    Sample Hair analysis Report
