Zeolite does sound like a superhero ~ Captain Zeolite, defending the human subterranean from negative toxins and harmful metals (it’s not that far from the truth). Not many people know about Zeolite, but its been around for centuries dating all the way back to the Romans. They used zeolite to build their aqua ducts and discovered the water tasted better, they were detoxing by unintentionally creating filtered water. I’ve been taking Zeolite for almost a year now, to safely and gently carry positively-charged toxins out of my body. This is important, because no matter how hard we try to minimise our exposure to chemicals and toxins, they keep showing up in our bodies in increased levels.
What is Zeolite?
When volcanic molten lava meets the sea, the chemical reaction creates a crystal with a cage-like, porous structure, which is also a negatively-charged mineral (this negative charge is what makes it a natural detoxifier). Since most environmental toxins and heavy metals carry a positive charge (remember the term in science class opposites attract?), they bind to the Zeolite like flies to sandpaper and swiftly leave our bodies.
How does it works?
Most environmental toxins and heavy metals we are exposed to are positively- charged, zeolite clinoptilolite is negatively-charged and works like a magnet, attracting these positively-charged toxins. You may not think you absorb any toxins or heavy metals, radioactive particles, and volatile organic compounds, but according to reports by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the average person now has 212 environmental chemicals in their blood. These include things like mercury, lead, cadmium and plastic byproducts, that simply aren’t supposed to be there. That’s pretty scary, but it’s nice to know that nature is always there to help us.
What I’ve experienced since taking Zeolite
I’ve tried other brands of Zeolite and this one for me seems to work the best for me. I respect the ethos of the company, read the research and felt the benefits, but don’t just listen to me go and investigate and decide for yourself. I started with Zeolite Extra Strength and wow did it give me a real kick. For me strong detoxifying effects cause me to feel a bit low for a few days, then I have a surge of energy and lightness (all the yuck has left my system). Zeolite Extra Strength certainly did that, I felt worse before I felt better and its important to be gentle on yourself during this time and to drink lots of water. I also read about how people were using it to help with skin rashes, so I sprayed it on my eczema, which was particularly bad and it helped to calm it down and stop the itching. I took Zeolite Extra Strength for three months, then moved onto Pure Zeolite, it’s cheaper and still helps to naturally remove toxins out of my system. I’ve got my mum taking it and also the family dog, as bow-wow Jake also absorbs heavy metals (we just a few drops in his water of pure zeolite once a week).
The main benefit I have noticed is that I sleep better and feel like I’ve had a good sleep. I rarely toss and turn, get up in the middle of the night, not fall asleep quickly or use an alarm clock. It’s also important to note that it’s not just one single thing that I do, but my lifestyle and accumulation of things like regularly taking Zeolite that keeps me healthy and happy. I’m continually learning and trying new ways to cleanse my body of toxins, as we are all different and something that works for me might not be as effective for you, but if you don’t try you won’t know. By writing these blogs and sharing my experiences I want to inspire you, for you to stop and think about your life, how you feel, what factors make you feel the way you do and suggest new things you could try. I only want the best for you and for you to feel as awesome and as in-tune with your body as I do! Please contact me if you have any questions about taking Zeolite, I’m more than happy to help you on your journey of health and vitalty.
