Our bodies absorb heavy metals daily. Mercury, Aluminium, and Lead can all cause neurological damage. Processed foods, plumbing, industrial waste pollutants, airborne toxins and even old paint coverings all contribute to high levels of dangerous toxins.
Heavy Metals tend to remain in the blood and internal tissue as they cannot be metabolized or filtered out easily by the liver and kidneys or eliminated through the skin with perspiration.
This can lead to long-term health issues, DNA damage, and disease. It is essential to detox these heavy metals out of our systems on a regular basis.
How Zeolite Works
Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals that are mined in certain parts of the world. When volcanoes erupt, molten lava and thick ash pour out. Because many volcanoes are located on an island or near an ocean, this lava and ash often flow into the sea.
Due to a chemical reaction between the ash from the volcano and the salt from the sea, amazing minerals like zeolites are formed in the hardened lava over the course of thousands of years. What makes zeolites so amazing is the fact that it’s not only one of the few negatively-charged minerals found in nature, but it also has a very unique structure. Zeolites have large, vacant spaces, or cages, that allow space for large, positively charged ions to be attracted to it, then trapped and eliminated from the body.
When ingested with water zeolite slowly travels through the gut and small intestines, coating the millions of tiny hair-like intestinal villi. The villi are the nutrient absorbing gateways from the intestines to the bloodstream. This means that the blood gets purified by zeolite before continuing through the body.
The mechanics of this process eliminates the possibility of toxic materials re-entering other organ tissues after being flushed out.
(Children in Russia were routinely given powdered Zeolite after the Chernobyl disaster to help eliminate radioactive poisons from the body)
Not Just For Detoxifying
In addition to removing toxic heavy metals and other chemicals, zeolite tends to raise the bodies overall pH creating higher alkalinity. Some clinicians and scientists believe that low body pH or acidity is the bodies equivalent of “stagnant water” that attracts pathogens to flourish as well as being a cause of Cancer.
Reported benefits of using Zeolite for detox include higher energy, mental clarity and an overall improved sense of well being.
