Zeolites are also renowned for their ability to absorb radioactive particles. In fact, shortly after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986 the US government charged the USGS (U.S. Geological Survey) department to find the best zeolite mines in the US and Canada. The lead scientist and zeolite expert on this project was so impressed with our Zeolite that he became a partner in the mine when he retired from the USGS.
Ammonia is a toxin that has no place in a healthy body, in fact thousands of people with liver and kidney disease die every year from too much ammonia in their blood. Yes, the average person can handle low levels, but it adds stress to a hard working immune system, compromises overall health and slows recovery.
Most ammonia in the body forms when protein is broken down by unfriendly bacteria in the intestines. It is also produced by parasites, yeasts and molds. These organisms produce ammonia both as a waste product but also as a mechanism to keep their host (your intestines) in an unhealthy state.
A healthy liver converts ammonia into urea, which is then eliminated in urine. A key benefit of dietary zeolite is its ability to directly remove ammonia, which means less stress on your liver and kidneys - a bonus for your wellness. Of course, reduced ammonia is also a bonus for healthy digestion, pathogens and parasites are weakened and beneficial bacteria can recolonize.
This is another reason to add dietary zeolite especially important if your liver is not working properly. Ammonia that remains unprocessed and can enter the bloodstream and invade the central nervous system, causing many dangerous symptoms. Even your brain can be affected. In advanced cases of liver disease, for example, a mild mental aberration may progress to coma and, ultimately, death. Increased levels of ammonia in the blood are characteristic of liver failure.
The use of zeolites as myco-toxin binders are not recognized in the United States. Nevertheless, the effectiveness of zeolites as myco-toxin binders is recognized in many other countries. For example, in Europe where zeolite is commonly fed to animals*, antibiotics are seldom used. Furthermore, micro-zeolite is an all-natural buffer, which rapidly reduces acidosis and assists in nutrient transport. (*The addition of zeolite in animal feed increases muscle gain, overall wellness and longevity - as demonstrated in many studies available in worldwide research).
The liver and kidneys are the body’s two primary detoxification organs. They are responsible for filtering out the “bad stuff.” Zeolites can help lessen the burden of detoxification on these organs, thereby supporting their healthy function.
Scientists have found that zeolites may relieve diarrhea and possibly enhance the absorption of nutrients in the digestive tract. Zeolites may also aid in normalizing bowel movements, acid reflux, leaky gut and other intestinal disorders.
Because many allergies stem from toxins and other foreign agents in the body, zeolites can lesson the risk or severity of allergies by trapping such foreign agents
Due to its molecular structure, zeolite minerals are capable of selectively attracting and binding toxic particles, whether they are heavy metals, radioactive particles, viruses, or other dangerous substances, and safely removing them. By removing toxins from the system, zeolites can help the body to defend itself while also increasing strength, endurance, and stamina.
Oxidative stress can be increased when we are exposed to pollution or chronic infections. This leads to the generation of free radicals. Free radicals are toxins too, only they are generated inside the body instead of coming from environmental sources. If they are not neutralized, free radicals attack and damage healthy cells and their DNA, causing premature aging, immune dysfunction, and a myriad of dysfunctions and diseases. Zeolites can act as an antioxidant, countering free radicals and helping the body defend itself against this attack.
Because of its net negative charge, zeolites can attract and bind to positively charged viral sub-particles. These are the particles that actually join together to form a new virus. By doing this, zeolites helps to limit the proliferation of viruses which can then be safely removed from the body.
Scientists believe that zeolites may be able to activate large groups of T-cells (the “killer” lymphocytes in the blood). In a study on patients being treated for immunodeficiency, six to eight weeks of zeolite supplementation was found to increase the blood counts of certain immune cells, enhancing the effect of the immune system.
Zeolites eliminate harmful substances, stop destructive attacks of free radicals, and find and bind pathogens in the circulatory system.
Glucose molecules carry a slight positive charge and as such have the capability of attaching themselves to the outside of a negatively charged zeolite particle. Through this passive mechanism, zeolites may help eliminate excess glucose and, as a result, help modulate blood sugar levels.
Zeolites can protect the blood vessels and tissues in the brain by trapping highly reactive free radicals and eliminating them from the system.
As free radicals travel through the blood, they set the stage for heart, vascular, myocardial and cerebrovascular disease. Zeolites may help to trap free radicals along with environmental toxins, thereby preventing or limiting further damage.
Zeolites, in conjunction with the antioxidant network, protect vital cell membranes from degradation and weakening by the effects of toxic substances.
Zeolites’ cavities are negatively charged compounds that attract and capture toxins and other harmful substances like free radicals in order to eliminate them. The elimination of these toxins allows the body’s cells to stay functional and repair themselves when damaged.
Heavy metals from environmental pollutants can accumulate in our body’s organs and tissues. The most dangerous metals are lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. They strain the ability of the liver to metabolize compounds for use in the body and eliminate toxic compounds. Zeolites can attract these compounds and eliminate them from the body.
An adaptogen is something that reacts and interacts with other compounds, thereby helping the body “adapt” or normalize within its current health state. Zeolites are used by the body in a variety of ways–– adapting to the body’s needs and acting as an antioxidant, blood cleanser, cell strengthening mineral, and toxin remover.
