Natural zeolite (clinoptilolite) does not have to pass through the blood brain barrier to detoxify heavy metals and other toxic matter from the whole body. Zeolite powder is known to be safe and effective and many peer-reviewed medical studies have been published on the subject. Nano-sized zeolite remains untested.
Synthetic zeolite is not safe to ingest in the long term because it releases aluminium into the body where it can accumulate. This does not occur with natural zeolite.
It states in the Critical Review on Zeolite Clinoptilolite Safety and Medical Applications in vivo:
“ … aluminum from the clinoptilolite materials does not enter the blood or accumulate in the body …”
“… aluminum released into systemic circulation was observed only in rats supplemented with synthetic zeolite A. The latter effect was attributed to the zeolite A lower stability in the acidic pH relevant for the human intestine in comparison to clinoptilolite materials.”
“In this study, authors also proved that clinoptilolite materials were efficient in the removal of aluminum from aluminum chloride-intoxicated rats in vivo. These observations may be attributed to the clinoptilolite stability …”
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.
While zeolite powder is travelling through the gastrointestinal system, it draws heavy metals and toxic matter into its structure. Zeolite draws toxic matter from other parts of the body by diffusion. Please click here for further information.
Zeolite is an aluminosilicate. Aluminium forms part of the zeolite structure but it is permanently bonded into the structure, making it unavailable and therefore harmless. Without the imbalance caused by the presence of aluminium, zeolite would not have the capacity for cation exchange and would not be able to take up heavy metals or other toxic matter.
Zeolite contains heavy metals like lead and cadmium, that’s because that’s what they do … take up heavy metals but then they bind them so they are permanently unavailable. This means when you take zeolite you are not eating lead, cadmium, etc. The whole intact zeolite particle passes through your gastrointestinal tract gathering more heavy metals and other toxic matter as it goes.
Taking zeolite will not normally deplete your body of necessary minerals, as zeolite has an affinity with ammonium, heavy metals and other pollutants and takes them up first. For zeolite to take up any essential minerals from your body, you would have to have a perfectly non-toxic system, which is very difficult to achieve.
The minerals which compose zeolite’s structure are permanently bonded within that structure and are not available to the body as a mineral supplement.
Zeolite will not travel through the body to remove titanium.
Overseas trials have shown that zeolite powder can help to regulate blood levels and can decrease the complications of diabetes. The best advice would come from a health practitioner who is familiar with zeolite as the dosage would differ depending on general health and weight.
If you search this subject, you may find articles about a synthetic zeolite taking up fluoride but I can’t find any scientific evidence showing that natural clinoptilolite takes up fluoride, even though some people say that it does so.
No, we don’t sell liquid zeolite as it is not good value. Instead we sell the finest quality zeolite powder which you can mix with water to make you own liquid zeolite.
To make the equivalent of five bottles of liquid zeolite (one bottle contains approx 500 mg), add 1 level teaspoon Australian zeolite powder (2500 mg) to a large glass of water, stir.
Yes, even though we describe it as superfine it can also be described as micronised which means “to break into very fine particles”.
No, there is no need to clean Australian zeolite as it doesn’t contain dissolved salts. The companies who say they clean their zeolite would be supplying much younger zeolite which still contains dissolved salts, making cleaning necessary. Australian zeolite is ancient (more than 300 million years old) and time has naturally removed any dissolved salts which may have been present within its structure when it was much younger.
Bentonite is an aluminosilicate and is described as a swelling clay. It has a two dimensional sheet structure into which toxic matter is absorbed. Its cation exchange capacity is (from memory) an average of about 60 meq/100 g and its pH level is approximately 10. Taking bentonite clay may give you a bloated feeling in your stomach as the clay swells in size on contact with water.
Zeolite is a hydrated aluminosilicate. It has a three dimensional structure. Each grain is riddled with tiny pores and channels where water is captured along with toxic matter. It is a lot more powerful than any clay, having an average cation exchange capacity of 150 meq/100 g. Its pH is 7.4.
No, Australian zeolite is not self-heating as it is a sodium zeolite. Calcium zeolites from overseas are considered to be self-heating.
The zeolite powder in the capsules has been “activated” by a process of heating and cooling which removes the water from the channels inside the zeolite to give more surface area for cation exchange to take place.
Regardless of its particle size, zeolite travels through the gastrointestinal system and does not travel through the cell walls or into any other part of the body. An exception to this rule is nano-sized zeolite which would be small enough to do so but not enough is known about what would happen if this occurred. The only nano-sized zeolite I know of is produced in the Netherlands.
