Are Liquid Zeolite Supplements Legit?
Updated: Apr 19
A number of zeolite products have saturated the market in recent years, and what seems to be trending in the zeolite industry right now are "liquid zeolite" products.
What is Zeolite?
Zeolite is a silica-based volcanic ash (sand-like mineral) that forms over time. Zeolite is an alkaline mineral that is very porous and has a negative charge. Since most toxins, such as heavy metals, radiation, and pesticides, are positively charged, zeolite is pulled to the toxins, like a magnet, and sucks them up into its structure.These dangerous substances become trapped in zeolite’s cage structure, and are then safely and gently carried out of the body. Zeolite can be a very effective detox tool when used properly.
What do you get when you mix dirt with water...liquid dirt? No, we usually call that mud. If you're going to buy some dirt for your garden would you buy it as a powder or would you buy it as mud? Personally I would buy dirt, because that's the only thing that makes sense to me. If I want to make mud I can just add water later. What if the garden center sales rep tells me that the newly released "liquid dirt" product is better for my garden. It has a smaller particle size and is more bioavailable for the ground. I would politely decline because I know that's a load of dirt...mixed with water. So when I see a "liquid zeolite" supplement being marketed I have to ask myself, "what is really being sold here?"
The Sad Truth
The truth is that liquid zeolite supplements are simply small amounts of zeolite powder in water (or any other type of liquid) because zeolite cannot be liquefied. Years ago, a process was developed to liquefy zeolite by a pharmaceutical company. Unfortunately, the chemists discovered that when zeolite was liquefied, it was no longer zeolite since the essential porous structure of the mineral was destroyed. Without this cage-like structure, zeolite CANNOT detox. Besides the fact that zeolite doesn’t detox after being liquefied, liquid zeolite supplement companies do not actually liquefy their zeolite because it requires an expensive patent licensing from the pharmaceutical company to use their liquefaction process. Further, it is a highly complex process to carry out using very specific lab equipment. It is for these reasons that zeolite supplement companies are not actually liquefying the zeolite, but simply mixing minuscule amounts of zeolite powder into a liquid. The amount of zeolite in these products is typically so low, that it is virtually ineffective for detoxing.
Liquid Zeolite's False Claims
“Liquid” zeolite supplement companies have made a name for themselves within the marketplace with ridiculous claims about what their products can do compared to powdered or encapsulated zeolite. Some of the most common ones include entering the bloodstream faster, passing the blood-brain barrier, being “activated” so it detoxes more efficiently, needing to take a certain amount of drops or sprays a day to build up a detox, or "nano" sized zeolite, which wouldn't even be large enough to absorb a heavy metal molecule. All these claims are just marketing propaganda to entice customers and make their products stand out.
The Danger of Liquid Zeolite Supplements
The two most important aspects to consider when utilizing zeolite for detox are quality and quantity. It's important to choose a quality, effective zeolite product and also to take it at the necessary dose. Utilizing a poor quality zeolite or taking the wrong dose can result in negative outcomes. Let's focus on zeolite dosing. The biggest mistake I see people making with zeolite supplementation (when using a quality product) is taking too small of a dose. A small dose will result in detox reactions, redistribution of toxins, and an ineffective detox. If you are experiencing detox reactions when taking zeolite you should up your dose immediately. It seems counter-intuitive but the lower the dose, the more likely you are to experience a detox reaction. I explain why this is the case in my blog post "Zeolite: The Dosing Paradox." The point here is that in order to effectively detox with zeolite you need a relatively high dose, and the more toxic you are the higher dose you need. The therapeutic doses cannot be achieved with liquid zeolite supplements. For most liquid zeolite products you would need to take over 100 bottles per day to get the proper dose. Many people are tricked into thinking that their liquid zeolite supplement is working because they are experiencing a detox reaction. Yes, it is working to some extent but the fact that you are experiencing a reaction means you need a way higher dose. Utilizing a high-quality zeolite powder can expedite your results and reduce or eliminate the detox reaction, even in sensitive individuals.
Liquid Zeolite Products are Overpriced:
Many liquid zeolite products on the market are outrageously priced. Our $29 jar of ZeoBoost™ contains between 600 and 1200 times the amount of zeolite than most liquid zeolite products on the market.
ZeoBoost™ is a high-quality, powdered zeolite supplement offered at a fraction of the cost of many zeolite products on the market.
