Zeolites are porous, microscopic volcanic sediments. Specific zeolites, such as clinoptilolite, have an incredible ability to trap and remove toxins from the human body. In this video, follow millions of years of history, starting with a volcanic eruption to a supplemental ingredient that can benefit your health today.

clinoptiloliteClinoptilolite acts as an adsorbent; it is capable of adhering certain substances to its surface or within its pores, activity that comes in handy in the context of targeting and eliminating toxins in the human body. Larger molecules interact externally while smaller molecules can interact internally, becoming trapped in the pores of clinoptilolite’s honeycomb structure by ion exchange or charged binding. Additionally, clinoptilolite’s stability in acidic environments makes it an optimal candidate for travel through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, again an appropriate quality for supporting detoxification.

Clinoptilolite’s adsorbent properties make it useful for supporting the elimination of mycotoxins, exotoxins, ammonia, cholesterol and bile, and harmful heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, silver, cesium, and mercury. Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by microscopic fungi, and they are associated with negative health outcomes in humans.

Clinoptilolite is also linked to supporting the rapid elimination of and protection from toxic effects of dietary acquired materials after exposure to heavy metals. This mineral may promote healthy, regular bowel movements, support the GI lining under stress conditions, counteract GI barrier damage, and enhance mucosal barrier protection and repair functions.
