Zeolite And Viruses

Updated: Sep 30, 2023

Zeolite is one of the most fascinating and powerful natural remedies out there! Zeolite is a naturally occurring mineral that contains a very strong “cage-like” structure and negative charge.  There are many types of naturally occurring zeolites. The zeolite that is being discussed in this article is called clinoptilolite, which is the form that has been most studied for human consumption.


How Does Zeolite Work?

Zeolite is an alkaline mineral that is very porous and is one of the very few minerals that is negatively charged by nature. Since most toxins, such as heavy metals, certain radioactive particles, 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 and Viral Infections

Zeolite is a fantastic option to consider when putting together an anti-viral protocol or looking for an effective way to keep your immune system balanced. Let's look at two ways that zeolite can help your body fight off a virus:


One: Remove Toxic Elements that are Burdening Your Immune System

Viruses are opportunistic, meaning they need an opportunity to take over a host. The main “opportunity” that a virus needs to take over is a weakened immune system which can be caused by a number of factors including an increased toxic burden. Metals, environmental toxicants, molds, and radioactive materials are a few of the immune-draining toxic elements that many of us have picked up over the years and are harboring in our bodies. Zeolite can absorb many of these toxic elements and remove them from your body, freeing your immune system to focus its energy on other issues such as viral invaders.


Consider a computer virus…it has no power over a computer with a strong anti-virus program. As long as its defense system is strong it has nothing to worry about. The virus has no opportunity to cause damage. Now let’s consider the human body…A human body with a strong defense system has nothing to worry about. Zeolite helps remove immune-drainers allowing your natural defense system to shift its focus to viral invaders.


Two: Directly Interfere with Viral Replication

Not only can zeolite lighten the load for your immune system, it can also directly address viral infections. The theory is that zeolite absorbs viral particles into the pores of the micronized zeolite aggregates. This explains why zeolite seems to block the development of many viral infections. Zeolite has antiviral properties due to its potential ability to absorb viral particles.


A study conducted to evaluate the antiviral properties of micronized clinoptilolite zeolite (what we use in ZeoBoost™) showed promise that zeolite can be used to inhibit viral replication. The study stated that the antiviral effect of the zeolite seems to be non-specific and is more likely based on the incorporation of viral particles into pores of zeolite aggregates than ion exchange properties of clinoptilolite. This means that zeolite may be effective against a whole host of viruses, not just the viruses used in the study. It is interesting to note that the low dose of zeolite in the study "induced a very low antiviral effect or the antiviral was not observed at all" but the high dose "induced a significant inhibitory effect upon viral proliferation." This supports the views I have shared on previous blogs about the importance of zeolite dosing.


What Else Does Zeolite Bind to?

Zeolite has a strong negative charge and thus is attracted to positively charged molecules. Since most of the things that don't belong in our bodies are positively charged, zeolite can be an effective detox method for a number of toxic elements that are draining our health. Here are a few more things zeolite binds to:


Heavy Metals- Heavy metals are toxic metals that accumulate in our bodies over time and put an enormous burden on our immune and nervous systems, and make our bodies work overtime to stay healthy. Eventually our bodies lose the ability to keep up with the excess demand and symptoms such as chronic fatigue, brain fog, irritability, and a host of other symptoms and conditions can manifest. Zeolite can target hidden metals such as lead, cadmium, and arsenic among other in your body and trap them in its cage-like structure for safe removal. Once the heavy metal burden is lifted your body can start functionally at its peak potential again.


Environmental Toxins- In the 21st century we face an unprecedented number of toxic stressors in our daily lives. From the air you breathe, to the food you eat - toxins are everywhere. Over time these toxins accumulate in your body wreaking havoc on your health.  Fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, a weakened immune system, and countless health issues are common side effects when these toxins build up. Since these toxins have a positive charge most of them will fall victim to zeolites strong binding capacity for safe removal from the body.


Mycotoxins- Mold toxicity is increasingly becoming recognized as a serious problem and a player in a number of serious chronic conditions. Even if you are not currently exposed to mold in your home or workplace it is possible that mold from a previous exposure is multiplying in your body. Mold spores can linger and continue replicating in your body for years even in the absence of external mold exposure. Zeolite is an incredible detoxifier of mold and is a must have in any mold detox protocol.


Radioactive Materials- After being exposed to ionizing radiation, radioactive materials are left in your body and will stick around for years if you don't take action to remove them. Chances are you've got a fair amount of radioactive materials hanging around in your body which have accumulated over the years from CT scans, Mammograms, X-Rays, naturally occurring radiation like radon, medical radiation procedures, nuclear fallout, etc. Zeolite is a fantastic tool to help remove leftover radiation from your body.



Is Zeolite Safe?

Yes, absolutely...well at least the high-quality clinoptilolite zeolite we utilize in ZeoBoost, I can't speak to the safety of other zeolite products on the market. There are hundreds of types of zeolite, but we are only talking about clinoptilolite zeolite here, which is the only type of zeolite that is used in supplements. Zeolite is a natural mineral and has a variety of elements in it. It is important to note that the structure of zeolite does not get broken down in the body. Because zeolite does not get broken down in the body, it does not leech any elements that make up the compound. Zeolite is not like an essential mineral that is utilized for cellular functions. It simply passes through your body collecting positively charged toxic elements and then is excreted. Therefore you cannot overdose on zeolite and you cannot poison yourself with zeolite.


How to Choose a Quality Zeolite Supplement

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. Poor quality or liquid zeolite supplements lack the dose, combination of large and small particle size and binding capacity needed for an effective detox.


What About Liquid Zeolite?

First of all just to clarify, liquid zeolite is not actually liquefied zeolite, it's powdered zeolite mixed with water. Powdered zeolite is sometimes the same as the liquid except in a powdered form that you can mix with water at home and make your own "liquid zeolite." So we are essentially talking about the same zeolite being used. In some cases however liquid zeolite supplements exclusively contain nanosized zeolite particles which are smaller than what is used in many powdered zeolite supplements. The particle sizes in the nanosized liquid zeolite supplements are usually around 2 microns or less. The idea here is that these nanoparticles can cross the blood brain barrier and provide a full-body detox while many of the powdered zeolite supplements only detox the gut. This is great in theory but in reality these liquid zeolite supplements are limited in what they can detox. If the zeolite cage-like structure is only 2 microns in size then larger toxins may not fit inside the zeolite cage. ZeoBoost™ also contains sub 2 micron particles but also includes a range of larger particles for a more comprehensive detox.


Common Zeolite Usage Mistakes

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.


Conclusion

High-quality zeolite clay is worthy of consideration when putting together an anti-viral protocol. Zeolite is an effective and safe detox tool for a number of toxic elements including heavy metals, environmental toxicants and mycotoxins. It is important to utilize a quality zeolite clay (not a liquid) at the proper dose for optimal effects.
