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.
Instead of offering one particle size, our zeolite is micronized into a range of particle sizes insuring a more complete full-body detox. Smaller zeolite particles are carried into the bloodstream for cellular detox, while the larger particles stay in the digestive tract to act as a binder. This offers a more balanced detox and reduces detox reactions common with many zeolite supplements.
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 of the 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.
Mold- 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.
Microbial Pathogens- Zeolite can bind to number of pathogenic microbes including Candida and a host of viruses. 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 blog posts and will cover later on this page about the importance of proper zeolite dosing.
ZeoBoost™ is a natural heavy metal and toxin detox supplement.* ZeoBoost™ is a proprietary clinoptilolite zeolite product specifically designed to remove toxic elements from your body. Our zeolite is micronized in powdered form with the highest available negative charge to bind to toxins that don't belong in your body.
Cleaned: Naturally occuring zeolite is often contaminated with a number of toxic elements. ZeoBoost™ zeolite is cleaned via a proprietary cleaning process prior to micronization. The result is the purest zeolite on the market with the strongest binding capacity.
Microninized: Zeolite Micronization is an expensive process that Zeolite supplement companies rarely invest in. Micronization is important for Zeolite supplements because the smaller Zeolite particles are able to leave the gut, circulate throughout the body, and travel deeper into tissues and between cells for a more thorough detox. A majority of other Zeolite supplement companies rely on milling to reduce the particle size. Milling, conducted at the mine, is where the Zeolite is crushed by machines, causing the structure of the Zeolite to be compromised. ZeoBoost™ utilized advanced mirconization processing to ensure the highest quality product.
Particle size: A combination of small and large particle size offers the most comprehensive zeolite detox. For example ZeoBoost™ contains 80% micronized particles which enter the blood stream and search for toxic elements to trap. These micronized particles are small enough to cross the blood-brain barrier and trap metals and toxins. 20% of the zeolite is a larger particle size which sticks around in the gut and acts as a binder.
