Zeolite captures and bonds a wide range of heavy metal ions so when you take zeolite powder internally, it travels through the gastrointestinal tract collecting and binding these heavy metal ions and other toxins on the way. At the same time zeolite can also bind bacteria onto its surface while bacterial spores, viruses and some microbial toxins are bound within its structure. The bound toxic matter will be eliminated in the faeces with the zeolite powder.
