What is the difference between zeolite powder and activated zeolite powder?
Both our zeolite powders, natural and activated, are the same powerful grade of Australian micronised zeolite powder from the same source. We “activate” the zeolite powder that goes into the capsules and into the 200 g jar of activated zeolite powder. We do this to make it easier for sensitive and very toxic people to process the zeolite. This is how it works:
- All clinoptilolite zeolites are hydrated aluminosilicates, which means they contain water within their structure. All water contains naturally occurring microbes. The water and microbes are removed in a four-stage heating and cooling process.
- Activating zeolite powder in this way gives it more surface area for the detoxifying cation exchange to take place. It also removes the microbes.
Activated zeolite is your best choice if you are sensitive or very toxic.

Is it safe to ingest synthetic 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 …”
What happens when you take zeolite powder?
“CMZ is a sodium zeolite. In the gastrointestinal tract CMZ binds to positively charged molecules including some toxins, and exchanges a sodium ion for each molecule bound. If the zeolite has been in the stomach at acid pH of 1 for any period of time the sodium ion would have already exchanged with an Hydrogen ion. After it has passed through into the alkaline part of the small intestine, the zeolite most likely would have reverted to the sodium form or may be binding an ammonium ion say, after digesting a meal.”
“From this it can be seen that heavy metals do not pass into the body from zeolite, as some people suggest, as Australian zeolite exchanges a sodium ion, not a heavy metal ion, for each molecule bound. I don’t know which ions are exchanged by American, Asian and European zeolites but they wouldn’t be heavy metal ions because that’s not the way zeolite works.”
Zeolite also removes heavy metals and other toxic matter from the parts of the body where it has been stored. I asked David Stevens, who at the time was completing a post graduate course in Medical Physics at the ANU in Canberra, to describe the process to me and he said:
“Most transportation in the body is the result of diffusion, where materials pass through membranes in the direction from higher concentration to lower concentration. Large particles can’t travel through cell walls, however atoms and molecules can. Heavy metals will pass from higher concentration to lower concentration (for example from bone into blood) until the concentration reaches an equilibrium (same concentration in the blood as in the bone).”
“The same thing happens between the blood and the gastrointestinal tract. A high concentration of heavy metals in the blood will pass through the blood vessel walls into the gastrointestinal tract as long as the concentration is lower in the gastrointestinal tract. Now, if the zeolite in the gastrointestinal tract adsorbs the heavy metals (which it does), the heavy metals are removed from the tract, leaving a low concentration there (in fact zero concentration), so more heavy metals pass into the gastrointestinal tract from the blood, thus removing them from the blood stream, so then the heavy metals pass from the bone (higher concentration) into the blood-stream (lower concentration).”
* CMZ is the source of our Australian Organic Certified zeolite powder.

Is the Aluminium Content of Zeolite Harmful?
In vivo, the acid concentrations of the intestine are substantially lower than those used in industrial activation process. For instance, gastric acid in the stomach contains HCl at 0.05–0.1 M. In such an environment, a certain release of Al species from the clinoptilolite surface may well be hypothesized even though aluminum from the clinoptilolite materials does not enter the blood or accumulate in the body as shown in athletes supplemented with zeolite-clinoptilolite supplement (Lamprecht et al., 2015) or healthy rats supplemented with different clinoptilolite materials (Kraljević Pavelić et al., 2017) where 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.

What is the difference between zeolite and bentonite clay?
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.

What is the CEC of your zeolite?
Cation exchange capacity is measured in meq/100 g. When the tests to assess the CEC rating are carried out they are carried out over a range of time periods, from a minute or so to an hour. About 10 readings are taken and then they are averaged. Our CEC is an average of 150 meq/100g. When the CEC tests were carried out on our Australian zeolite the top readings over short periods were over 200. Always ask a supplier for the average reading.
There are more ways to rate a zeolite's quality other than just looking at the CEC. Mineralogy and stability are extremely important. Zeo Natural's zeolite is 85% clinoptiloliote and 15% mordenite, both of which are therapeutic. Stability is measured on the Moh scale which measures hardness. Our zeolite is hard at around 5 Mohs whereas US and Asian zeolites are much softer, and therefore not as stable, at around 2 Mohs.
