Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals that are created when volcanoes erupt and molten lava and thick ash flow into the sea.  Thanks to a chemical reaction between the ash from the volcano and the salt from the sea, zeolites are formed. These Zeolites are usually are encased in the hardened lava for thousands of years.  Mining is the only way to free them.

Zeolites have the rare distinction of being one of the few negatively-charged minerals found in nature.  They also possess a very unique structure with large vacant spaces or cages.  The negative charge combined with this structure allows for large, positively charged ions to be pulled into the Zeolite cage and trapped.

When ingested as a supplement, a zeolite works at the cellular level to trap allergens, heavy metals and harmful toxins. In fact, because it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, a zeolite acts as a magnet, drawing toxins to it, capturing them in its cage, and removing them safely and naturally from your body. This unique ability to remove dangerous toxins is so well documented; it was used by the Russian government to absorb radioactive chemicals and other harmful toxins after the Chernobyl disaster. For centuries, the powdered forms of specific zeolites have been used as traditional remedies throughout Asia to promote overall health and wellbeing.

ZEO Health LTD. is the first Zeolite health supplement manufacturer in the United States and the largest in the world. We source our Zeolite from one of the only mines in the world, mining specifically for human consumption. Our products are manufactured in an FDA licensed and certified GMP pharmaceutical facility.

How to recognize a quality zeolite supplement

The Cleaning Process of ZEO Health Zeolite

We start with the cleanest zeolite on earth.  We mine specifically for human consumption (the only mine in the world that does this). The zeolite is then intensely washed with purified water and prepared to ensure a standardized cat-ion capacity and clean cage. The zeolite is then put through rigorous quality control tests to ensure its quality and safety is maintained for human consumption. It is thoroughly dried and then MICRONIZED to the smallest powdered particle size thus allowing it to penetrate throughout the body and even through the blood brain barrier to safely remove disease causing toxic heavy metals that include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, barium and other toxic chemicals.

Milled vs. Micronized Zeolite

The easiest way to identify a commercial grade zeolite is by the particle size.  In order for zeolite to be used in any application it has to go through particle reduction after mining.  There are two forms of particle reduction for zeolite, milling (resulting in commercial grade) and micronization (resulting in pharmaceutical grade).

All zeolite is milled once it is mined out of the ground.  This enables the mine to transport the product easily and efficiently.  The milling process is inexpensive, doesn‚€™t require much expertise and delivers a product the suits most commercial standards.  Commercial applications of zeolite include water and air filtration, soil treatment, additives to kitty litter and concrete as well as a cleanup agent for radiation contamination.  Companies that use commercial grade zeolite generally don't require the zeolite to be cleaned.   Milled zeolite, although useful in commercial applications, is not suited for supplementation let alone human consumption without proper cleaning. 

Particle reduction through milling will generally not yield a particle size below 20 microns.  Micronization on the other hand can produce particle sizes from 0 to 20 microns.  Without significant micronization, zeolite will not be small enough to travel through the bloodstream when used as a supplement.  The micronization process also makes zeolite more efficient in attracting toxins by exposing more of its surface area while keeping the important cage-like structure intact.  Zeolite must be cleaned and micronized to be considered pharmaceutical (or food) grade. 

When faced with the choice of using a commercial grade zeolite or spending the money for a quality controlled cleaning and micronization process, many zeolite supplement manufacturers choose to use the cheaper, less effective, unclean commercial grade zeolite.   Pharmaceutical grade zeolite can cost more the double the price of commercial grade zeolite to produce, but the results are a safe and effective product.  All of ZEO Health Ltd. zeolite is cleaned and micronized with the strictest quality controls and highest standards for human consumption to ensure the highest quality, most effective products.

CEC Rating and Micron size

The CEC rating measures the ability of the zeolite to absorb toxins and heavy metals.  Zeolites with higher ratings have better absorption capabilities.

Zeolite FAQs

Icon General Questions

Icon Will ZEO Health products conflict with any medications that I may be taking?
Probably not. They contain all natural minerals and vitamins. Zeolite passes through your system collecting the toxins and heavy metals, and is passed naturally without you even noticing. Since Zeolite remains intact and does not break down in the body it generally does not interact with any other medications. We have no knowledge of any known drug interactions with our products. However, you should always check with a medical professional if you have any concerns about interactions with medications that you are taking. Heavy metal based medications such as lithium may be less effective when taking our products since Zeolite traps heavy metals in the body.

Icon I never heard of Zeolite before, what is it?

Zeolite is a volcanic mineral which was created when ash and lava from a volcano had a chemical reaction with sea water. The result is a compound with a cage-like structure and a negative charge. The negative charge acts like a magnet to attract positively charged toxins and heavy metals to the Zeolite. These are then trapped in its cage structure and carried out of the body. We use the micronized powder form of Zeolite which is the form shown effective in all of the scientific studies.

Icon How does Zeolite work in the body?

Zeolite is one of the very few minerals that are naturally negatively charged. This means that it actually attracts the toxins and heavy metals from your body like a magnet. The mineral has a honeycomb shape that allows it to trap these toxins and heavy metals as it passes through the body. Our products contain Zeolite with unique formulations that have been proven to absorb the toxins, free radicals, and metals from your body, as well as boosting the immune system. This mineral has also been shown to balance the body‚€™s pH. Foreign cells cannot grow in a balanced pH environment.

Icon Does your Zeolite get into the bloodstream?

Yes. Instead of offering one particle size, our zeolite ranges from a micron size of 0 to 11.  This insures a more complete full body detox.  Smaller zeolite particles are carried in the bloodstream and to the brain while the larger particles stay in the digestive tract longer.  This approach to detoxification offers a more balanced yield.

Remember that the Zeolite does not break down in the body and remains intact, collecting heavy metals and toxins then carrying them out.  Our product is designed to reach more places in the body and offer the most complete detox.

IconWhat is the deal with liquid Zeolite?

Let me start by saying, ALL ZEOLITES ARE POWDERED ZEOLITES, whether in a capsule, container or in a liquid.  Liquid zeolites on the current market are ‚€œzeolite suspensions‚€, which means they are powdered zeolites suspended in some kind of liquid. 

There used to be a zeolite product that liquefied zeolite using hydrochloric acid.  The initial drug was designed to be injectable, but testing showed the product was rendered ineffective because the zeolite bonds where broken in the process.  It was then sold and then marketed as an ingestible supplement.  This supplement was soon found to be dangerous and the company  changed the formulation to a zeolite powder in a liquid suspension.

Icon I have had problems with side effects of other detoxifying products, will I have the same problem with your products?

Toxicity in the body can show itself in different ways in different people. Most detoxifying products have side effects but our Zeolite products generally do not have any side effects, although it may vary with certain individuals.

Icon How safe is Zeolite?

This form of Zeolite is listed by the FDA as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) and is used in many products that you have probably come in contact with. Zeolite has been shown to be completely nontoxic, even at extremely high dosages. The great thing about using this all-natural and safe product is that it can be taken over and over again, long term without worry, with only beneficial benefits for your body.

Icon How long will it be before I see results?

This is a difficult question to answer and all depends on the individual person. Everyone shows toxicity in their body in different ways. Some may have bad skin, some may have severe medical issues. Based on the persons exposure to toxins and heavy metals, there are different levels in people. People also respond differently to treatment. Our general recommendation is to take the product for 90 days and then be reevaluated by your medical professional to see what progress has been made. Please make sure that you are also taking the recommended dosage based on your needs to ensure that you are receiving the optimum benefit from the product.
