This Zeolite is the Clinoptilolite form which is naturally occurring volcanic mineral compounds with an negative magnetic charge and a unique crystalline cage-like structure. Many harmful toxins have an attraction or affinity to the cage, so they are drawn into the cage like a magnet attracts iron filings.
Zeolite is actually the name of a family of minerals as there are over 60 different types. Some are very fibrous and ineffective and at least two may be toxic to people. One of the toxic ones is called Erionite. It has a effect similar to asbestos as it may burrow into tissue making it difficult to pass through the digestive system. There are only two forms of Zeolites proven safe and beneficial to people in scientific studies. The first is Clinoptilolite which is the one we sell as are almost all Zeolite supplements on the market. The second is Mordenite, but this form has a sharp molecular structure that could have long term negative irritant effects on the digestive tract because of its razor like structure.
Zeolite forms where volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Zeolite also crystallizes in post-depositional environments over periods of thousands of years in shallow marine basins. The term zeolite was originally coined in 1756 by Swedish mineralogist Axel Fredrik Cronstedt, who observed that upon rapidly heating the material stilbite, it produced large amounts of steam from water that had been adsorbed by the material. Based on this, he called the material zeolite, from the Greek (zeo), meaning “boil” and (lithos), meaning “stone”.
Suggested Usage: Adults, 1-3 teaspoons per day mixed with water, for 1-2 weeks. Note: This product will not dissolve complete, but simply swirl it in the water and drink. Do Not Chew as it can be abrasive on tooth enamel.
Reported Healing Uses of Clinoptilolite Zeolite:
1. Removing toxic metals from the body, such as Aluminum, Arsenic, Barium, Cadmium, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Radium, and Tin;
2. May enhance liver toxin flushing caused by Hep C;
3. Improves absorption of essential nutrients;
3. Aids in the normalizing of PH levels;
3. Reduces acid reflux symptoms;
4. Alleviate symptoms of Diarrhea;
Zeolite is non-toxic, has no side effects, no taste and is safe for use by both adults and children. Even the pharma-industry controlled FDA has classified zeolites as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS Status). More than ever before, the average person is exposed to more toxins through water and air pollution, household cleaners, pesticides, disinfectants, and food additives. This may well be the major reason for the increase and early onset of degenerative diseases today.
Zeolites are very specific in reactivity. They have a special affinity for mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead which are strongly correlated with neurological disorders such as autism, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Zeolite has a very low affinity for minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sodium and phosphorus; therefore is low risk to cause depletion of those critical electrolyte minerals. An animal study was done with zeolites to see if they would pull out essential nutrients and minerals like calcium and magnesium. It was found that animals with and without supplementation of the diet with these nutrients had much better nutritional status than those that were given no zeolite. The bottom line is that Zeolites appear not to pull out essential minerals, which is a classic danger with traditional chelation therapy.
Zeolite works differently than chelation; it traps toxins inside the molecule, where they are insulated by the zeolite cage from healthy tissue. The ionic charge pulls toxins into this cage-like structure where they are ensnared by the molecule and are not free to react with the outside space. The zeolites then stay in the body 5 to 6 hours until they are disposed of via waste elimination. You essentially ingest a clean molecule, and excrete a dirty one, making Zeolite one of nature’s most effective and efficient methods for detoxifying the body.
