The key to health is eliminating toxicities and deficiencies! - Dr. William R. Kellas

Clinoptilolite Zeolite

In our modern world, with pervasive toxicity, if you don't do something daily to detoxify yourself, then your body is inevitably becoming more toxic... more damaged... and losing lifespan and qualify of life potential. We highly recommend natural zeolite to counter this wrong-way direction.

  • Zeolite is a safe method of detoxification for virtually anyone - because it is does not provoke toxin release. It only captures toxins that are already circulating in the blood stream. Thus, it will not increase the amount of exiting toxins being processed by the body, but will only reduce the amount of toxins that bodily systems have to deal with.
  • Also, since it only works from the intestines (at the villi point of contact with the blood stream),without entering the blood stream, it puts no burden on the kidneys, lymph or liver. That means it is safe for nursing or pregnant mothers because it will not increase the amount of toxins entering one's child as other forms of detoxification do.
  • GRAS status - due to a long history of use, it is categorized by the U.S. government as generally recognized as safe.
  • Our zeolite can capture heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, aluminum and many more.
  • Our zeolite can also capture radon gas, environmental radiation, nuclear fallout, medical radiation (x-rays or radioactive dyes) or radiation from space (this is mostly encountered during air-travel at high altitudes)

Highest CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity) Rating of All Tested Zeolite Products

  • Cation Exchange Capacity  (CEC) means the ability to capture and remove cations (such as heavy metals and ammonia from a liquid solution).
  • The more powerful a zeolite is, the higher will be its cation exchange capacity.
  • While other zeolite products may tout "manufacturing processes", "additional ingredients" or other marketing ploys, NRG Zeolite simply states that a measured CEC is what matters... the ability of zeolite to pull toxins out of one's body is what we are seeking.
  • No other product comes close to NRG Zeolite's CEC rating of 180 meq/100 grams. Most liquid zeolites are less than one and most other powders less than 50.

Long History of Safe Use

For How Long Has Zeolite Been Used?

  • B.C. — Used in Roman Aqua Ducts to purify water
  • 1760s — Rediscovered by a Swedish mineralogist
  • 1960s — Mentioned in scientific circles in Europe and the U.S.
  • 1970s — Used for wastewater treatment, ammonia removal and Chernobyl radioactivity removal
  • 1980s — Used to clarify pool water in Europe and then in USA
  • 1990s — Used in agriculture and with cattle and poultry and began to be sold as a supplement for detoxifying the human body
  • 2000s to present — Many companies are now marketing zeolite in numerous products

The Origin of Zeolite

Natural Zeolite Formation

Zeolite powder begins as a volcanic ash that has been turned by natural processes into crystalline rock known as zeolite.

Zeolite crystals are unique in that they have an interior honeycomb or porous or capillary structure that is naturally negatively charged, and that thereby attracts and captures positively charged toxins such as heavy metals, pesticides, solvents and even ammonia atoms (produced from metabolism of protein).

Zeolite rock can be crushed into powder, which gives more surface area and therefore greater access for toxins to become trapped in its negatively charged, crystalline structure. This zeolite powder can be consumed in any food or liquid so that its detoxifying power can go to work inside our bodies.

What is Zeolite?

Porous volcanic rock that can be ground into powder and added to food or drink, and will then trap pollutants that may exist in the body and carry them out in the stool. Typical mineralogical composition of our Natural Zeolite Powder is 95% Clinoptilolite plus minor amounts of smectite (common, silica clay that makes up 50% of earth’s crust) and feldspar (common, silica rock that make up 41% of the earth’s crust).

Zeolite Mechanism of Action

Zeolites exchange existing internal cations (calcium, potassium or sodium) with whatever cations (heavy metals and other toxins) that enter into its crystalline structure, and will then retain (via capillary and electronic attraction) those toxins within its crystalline pores. The zeolite crystals will mix with the stool and the zeolite and toxins that have been trapped will eventually exit the body in the stool.

Zeolite Affinity for Trapping Cations (Toxins)

  • Zeolites have greater affinity, or capturing power, for some elements than for others, i.e. they are selective as to which elements they will trap and most strongly hold on to.
  • The particular cations for which a zeolite has the most affinity depends on the electronic charge within the tunnels and fissures of the zeolite crystal and upon the size of those tunnels, which depends upon the type of zeolite, the makeup of tightly held metals in its structure (which give it its negative charge) and which cations (such as calcium, potassium, sodium, etc.) it contains in its cages (i.e. tunnels and fissures).
  • Clinoptilolite Zeolite has the greatest affinity for heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury. It also has a strong affinity for ammonia.
  • Each Clinoptilolite deposit will differ slightly from another Clinoptilolite deposit in regard its particular affinity for various cations because of its differing tightly bound metals and differing cations that are in its cages (pores and fissures).
  • Typically, the cations in those cages are sodium, potassium, or calcium, sometimes iron, or copper. When a toxin is encountered for which the zeolite has has affinity, an exchange is made, the lower affinity element goes into the body and the higher affinity element goes into the zeolite cage… this exchange process continues until the zeolite leaves a person’s body in the stool.
  • Thus zeolites will continuously exchange encountered elements that are preferred over the existing elements trapped in its cages. For instance:
    • Zeolite powder originally contains calcium.
    • And exchanges an encountered cadmium element for the calcium.
    • It then exchanges an encountered mercury for the cadmium.
    • It then exchanges an encountered lead for the mercury.
    • Clinoptilolite Zeolites have a greatest affinity for lead and so nothing else encountered will be exchanged for the lead.
    • This is one reason what it is important to use zeolite continuously for a long time to ensure that heavy metals are all removed. They will be removed in priority order, first all the lead, then all the mercury, then all the cadmium and so on, until finally, lower affinity elements such as ammonia will be removed.
  • Thus, zeolite cleans the body of toxins in a hierarchical order, according to affinity, which comes down mostly to element size and valence.
  • It’s also one of the reasons why, consuming zeolites results in many heavy metals of lower affinity going into the urine… while the highest affinity metals remain in the zeolite, which often goes out of the body through the stool

Books to Read About Zeolite Detoxification

What is Zeolite?

The short answer is micro-porous minerals of volcanic origin.

The longer answer is that Zeolite is an inorganic porous material having a highly regular structure of pores, chambers or capillaries that are negatively charged (very unique in nature) that allows some substances (neutral or negatively charged) to pass through, and causes others (positively charged toxins) to be trapped inside its chambers. For our purposes, ”toxins check in, but they can’t check out”.

For the chemists out there, our Zeolite is Clinoptilolite, or Potassium-calcium- sodium-aluminosilicate, and is classified as a dietary supplement under US-FDA guidelines (see FAQ for more information). The tiny, nanosized tunnels of Clinoptilolite are so small they can only be detected by electron microscopes or X-Ray Diffraction Analysis.

Mining of Zeolite

Zeolite is mined from zeolite deposits (there are several zeolite sites in the U.S. and around the world.




Zeolite Rock General Analysis

The Natural Zeolite we use comes from US mines and has the following properties. It is 95% Clinoptilolite with remaining 5% being a mix of feldspar and smectite, which are the two most common components of earth’s crust.

Hockey Player’s Stiffness and Arthritis Gone

“Having played hard during my youth especially in hockey I have had painful stiffness in my hands and knees. I’ve used powdered Zeolite for over a year now and haven’t even thought about my hands and knees. My bodies infrastructure is changing and I know the value of the removal of the heavy metals form my body! I believe that the silica in this pure natural Zeolite has assisted greatly in this transformation.”

Ken

Stopped Toxic Reaction

“I am writing to you to tell about my dog Georgio having a toxic reaction to Iverhart which was given to me by a Vet tech, because they were out of the Sentinel that I use. After 6 hours he started to display a neurotoxic reaction vomiting, no appetite and wobbling as he tried to walk. I remembered that the Zeolite has a detoxifying property and so I cooked up some chicken and rice, adding a quarter tsp of zeolite to this food. At 3pm he was highly active and wanted to play chase. He is 13 years and he is not usually this active. So the Zeolite, made him feel better than before. Thanks for the Zeolite.”

Patti

Renewed Athletic Performance

“I have been detoxifying my body with Zeolite for almost 90 days now and the results have been miraculous. I have been an athlete for most of my life, but as 30's became 40's, 40's turned to 50's, and now 50's have become 60's I found that my athletic ability had slowly deteriorated until I wasn't sure that I hadn't made up all of my past athletic accomplishments.

Now, 90 days into Zeolite, I can run/walk our 3.5 mile course instead of walk/ walk the two mile course. I can do 40 minutes on the elliptical cross trainer at level 5 and feel great. I can dance all night with my "GINGER" and not feel any of the discomfort in my hips and legs that I used to feel after just one or two dances.

Thanks to Zeolite I'm like a fine wine, the older I get the better I feel.“

Jerry

There are numerous sources of the toxins in the human body including:

  • Mercury in dental fillings
  • Petrochemical products
  • Nitrogen compounds such as ammonia (produced in the body)
  • Cadmium in cigarettes and smoggy air
  • Preservatives and pesticides in and on our food
  • Perfumes and lotions that we put on our skin
  • Air-fresheners
  • Cleaning fluids
  • Out-gassing from carpets, Formica, pressed wood and paneling

Mother's Take Note - Your Baby is at Risk

Many newborn babies have been shown to have toxic loads at birth that exceed the toxic loads accumulated during an entire lifetime by preceding generation adults.

Newborn babies today can have toxic loads at birth that exceed the accumulated toxic load of old people of generations past. The reason is the high level of toxins today. The high toxic load of a young mother today (who is exposed to industrial pollutants means that those toxins will pass into the fetus from the mother's body. Although not yet proven, the environmental toxic load going into a fetus combined with toxins in early childhood vaccinations is what many people now believe to be the true cause of autism in children.

So, if you are a nursing mother, pregnant woman, or mother-to-be, we urge you to daily seek to get the many toxins out of your body in order to protect your baby since most toxins will pass into the fetus while inside the womb or into a nursing baby through mother's milk!!! If you are currently pregnant or nursing, only use zeolite so that your baby is not exposed to any potential damage from exiting toxins. If you are not yet pregnant then you can combine zeolite with active detoxification methods that provoke toxin release. By ingesting zeolite powder you will help ensure that all of those toxins are eliminated as quickly as possible. Active detoxification methods include sauna, chelation therapy and fasting.

Summary: Ingesting a few teaspoons daily of zeolite powder is a safe form of detoxification for mothers since zeolite powder does not break up toxin storage sites to release their toxins en-mass into the body as does chelation therapy. (Breaking up a toxin storage site releases many toxins all at once.)

Frequently Asked Questions - About Our Clinoptilolite Zeolite:

While other zeolite manufacturers seek to nanosize their powders or ultra clean their zeolite liquid solutions, NRG Natural Zeolite has only one goal:

  • This goal is to maximize the toxin removing ability of our product.
  • To accomplish this goal we do not nanosize (ultra-grind) the zeolite crystals as that breaks up too many of the micro-scopic chambers of a zeolite crystal. A broken chamber cannot capture anything. This is evidenced by our much higher CEC rating.
  • The size of our zeolite crystals is such that it does not pass into the bloodstream, but works entirely from within the villi of the small intestines to capture toxins out of one's blood stream. By, not entering the blood stream, our zeolite will not cause extra work or damage to the kidneys to filter the zeolite out of the blood stream.

Answer: Although, Clinoptilolite zeolite is a natural and, therefore, a varying product by deposit, Clinoptilolite’s commonly accepted chemical formula is: (Na,K,Ca)2-3Al3(Al,Si)2Si13O36·12(H2O). That translates into Hydrated Sodium Potassium Calcium Aluminum Silicate, also called Potassium-calcium-sodium- aluminosilicate for short.

Answer: Cation Exchange Capacity, or CEC, is a way to measure the capacity that a particular zeolite has to capture cations (positively charged particles such as lead, ammonia, etc.). After all the marketing hype is done, the only thing that really matters is the relative capacity of Zeolite to detoxify (or remove cations) from blood and cellular cytoplasm.

CEC is measured in the laboratory by putting a test substance (such as ammonia, which is a strong cation) in water solution, adding zeolite, then removing the zeolite through filtration and measuring the remaining test substance (cation, again, typically ammonia) that was not removed from the water. The less of the test substance that remains in the water after treatment with zeolite), the higher it’s CEC rating (or toxin pulling power). At 180 to 220 MEQ/100 grams, our Natural Zeolite Powder has the highest CEC rating of all zeolites on the market.

Answer: Some people might call Zeolite a nutrient because it can deliver silica, calcium and potassium to the body. However, Zeolite’s primary contribution to health is detoxification.

Answer: Natural Zeolite Powder makes contact with the blood as it passes through the villi of the small intestines. Intestinal villi are actually “mixing chambers”, and there are millions of them in one’s intestines. It is in this mixing chambers that food particles have intimate contact (by mixing with the blood). Blood enters the the villi so that the blood can pick up food particles and and carry them throughout the body. The blood circulates back out of the villi (after having come in to get food), but the zeolite does not go into the bloodstream.

While the zeolite is going through the alimentary canal and villi along with food particles, fiber, water, wastes, etc. the zeolite captures whatever toxins were in the blood and intestinal tract and then continues its path through gastrointestinal tract. Eventually, the zeolite (laden with the toxins it has trapped) exits the body in one’s stools.

Answer: A short answer is that this particular dirt is good for you.

Actually, eating dirt is a healthy practice. In this regard, Zeolite is an especially good dirt, since its naturally occurring heavy metals are all tightly-bound (and, therefore, will not go into the body) and it supplies silica, calcium and potassium which are good for the body. Also, zeolite removes toxins from the body. A sample analogy for Zeolite is that it is like a vacuum that, although it contains dirty bags and dirty filters, is still able to clean your house of dirt.

In giving a longer answer to this question:

  • The kind of Zeolite we use called Clinoptilolite is GRAS listed (generally regarded as safe).
  • Our Clinoptilolite Zeolite is exceptionally pure (see its assay and CEC rating).
  • Our Clinoptilolite Zeolite is free of pathogens.
  • Our Natural Clinoptilolite Zeolite Powder CEC rating shows that it is exceptionally capable of removing toxins from the body. Tightly bound means that the naturally occurring, aluminum, titanium, copper, iron and other heavy metal components of zeolite, are all tightly bound (not water soluble). Tightly bound means that they are bound in the zeolite crystal, will not leave the crystal and will not go into the human body. Actually, those tightly bound elements are necessary to be there to give the negative electrical charge in the capillary structure. When zeolite goes through one’s digestive tract, the zeolite will capture heavy metals, such as aluminum, lead, or titanium that it encounters. It clears the blood of these heavy metals and other other toxins in the intestinal villi where zeolite mixes with food. Indeed, it cleans the body like a dirty vacuum cleans dirt from our houses. Toxins go into zeolite, but not out!

Answer: That’s grossly misleading… very similar to saying that that "beans" are poisonous.

A few beans are poisonous. Most are not. One particular zeolite has been shown to be cancer causing. But, just as most beans are edible and nutritious, most Zeolites are beneficial. There are 50 types of zeolite, only one is cancer causing. A fibrous, white colored zeolite known as Erionite is a damaging to cell membranes and highly correlated to cancer. Even though erionite is a zeolite (i.e. it has negatively charged internal tunnels) and has been shown to increase cancer, Clinoptilolite and many other zeolites are not cancer causing.

The type of zeolite that is used for human detoxification is called Clinoptilolite. Clinoptilolite is GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) listed by the U.S. government and has been used for a long while (since the Roman Aqueducts) with a history of benefits. Millions of people are currently consuming Clinoptilolite Zeolite, with beneficial consequences. Clinoptilolite Zeolite has a great capacity to remove toxins, including radiation from people, soil and water. Detoxifying the body is one of the most beneficial practices any person can have today because of the toxic world in which we live. The regular use of Clinoptilolite zeolite will help prevent cell membrane damage, which takes one in the opposite direction of cancer.

Answer: Our Natural Zeolite Powder stays in the gastrointestinal tract and never enters the bloodstream. But, our liquid Zeolite/fulvic/humic product, Zeoheal™ enters both the blood stream and also crosses into the blood brain barrier as well as into individual cells to clean them.

Answer: The truth about zeolite is that it CAN take nutrients away. But, it isn’t likely, if used as directed. And the truth is that virtually any food or supplement can hurt you if you take too much. Just like it is possible to drink too much water, or eat too many nuts or berries, or take too much Vitamin C, or do too much exercise (anything good can be overdone) it is possible to take too much zeolite and the of taking too much can result in a loss of nutrition from your body.

Here’s how that could happen:

  • Zeolite will capture any positively charged ion, but it has a preference for high valence elements, such as mercury, cadmium, lead, ammonia, etc.
  • If you eat too much zeolite, and it cannot find preferred toxins to trap, it will trap lower valence minerals, such as free calcium, potassium, etc.
  • As Zeolite goes through the gastrointestinal tract, it constantly exchanges the cations (positively charged elements) that it encounters for which it has a higher affinity (i.e. the ones that have a higher valence or atomic weight).
  • It will keep doing this exchange process any time it encounters a positively charged atom that has a higher valence than what is currently trapped in its pores.
  • So, when zeolite finally exits one’s body (in the stool) it will contain within its cages the highest valence atoms that it encountered during its transit through the blood connections of the villi of the gastrointestinal channel, it contacts toxins in the blood as well as in the intestinal tract. What this means in practice is that if you eat more zeolite than you have toxins in your body, the zeolite will capture minerals and carry them out of the body. For this reason, we recommend that you do NOT eat more than 2 teaspoons in one serving.

An interesting way to tell if one is consuming the right amount of zeolite is by the smell of one’s urine and stool. If there is an ammonia odor, then, most likely, one can safely eat more zeolite, but if there is no ammonia odor, then the zeolite is probably already being consumed at a high enough rate to have removed existing toxins (since zeolite’s preference for ammonia is at the bottom of its preference list), and taking more zeolite would remove nutrients

It has a slightly chalky taste.

Answer: Hmm... not really.

Whether red, black, brown, green, white or translucent... all Clinoptilolite zeolites are useful for detoxifying the body. However, a good general statement would be that colored zeolites will work better than translucent zeolites (because they will have a higher CEC rating or toxin capturing power). A completely pure zeolite would be translucent like glass and would have less toxin capturing power than a colored zeolite.

  • The color of zeolite is imparted by the particular minerals that are part of the zeolite deposit, iron, copper, titanium, etc. The majority of zeolites are gray or brown in color.
  • Zeolite color is the result of how light is reflected when it strikes the zeolite. The color is the result of the particular combination of minerals and silica making up the zeolite. Zeolite gets a large part its toxin attracting power color from the minerals within the zeolite structure of silica crystals. Those minerals are essential for zeolite to work.
  • The various combinations of minerals can create red, blue, green, brown, black colored zeolites. But, instead of trying to judge by color (outward appearance) which is not very scientific, we simply say to judge by CEC rating.
  • CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity) rating can be measured. CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity) means how powerful is the “toxin pulling and trapping power” of zeolite, i.e., how much toxic material a zeolite can pull out of water solution (or out of the human body). That is a real measure of zeolite power, not color.
  • Here’s an analogy... if a group of men all claimed to be the strongest, instead of believing their stories of strength (or being attracted to their brightly colored outfits), a better way would be to invite them to a weightlifting contest. The one who lifted the greatest weight would be the strongest, not the one with most impressive stories (marketing copy) or physique (outward appearance).
  • Similarly, CEC rating is what you want to know, not marketing hype.
  • We have heard of one zeolite vendor stating that a green color of zeolite means that ingesting that particular zeolite would poison you with copper. This is utter nonsense, possibly designed to scare you away from any zeolite but that particular vendor’s zeolite.
  • Heavy metals are captured by zeolite, not released. That is a basic fact about zeolite. If you don’t believe that, then you don’t understand zeolite’s ability to remove toxins from the body. Our Zeolite rock/ore is 95%+ Clinoptilolite zeolite, while most zeolite ores are only 50 to 70% pure zeolite.
  • Clinoptilolite, itself, is translucent like glass. The metals in the zeolite crystal become tightly bound as zeolite is formed from molten lava and seawater, and do not come out of the zeolite when mixed with water or when eaten.
  • Those metals are essential to the electrical attraction of the zeolite (which is what captures toxins). Ranchers, who have the most practical experience with zeolites, believe that green zeolites are among the most effective in producing healthy animals.
  • However, this has not been addressed through studies, going beyond the rancher’s account sheets showing their profits.
  • Since it is possible that zeolite crystals could be mixed with colored dirt one should never judge a zeolite by its color only.
  • Science says: don't believe in the color, believe in the CEC rating.

Answer: Eating inorganic, free aluminum or aluminum salts isn’t a good idea, but the aluminum in Zeolite is not free.

  • Therefore, that aluminum will not be digested or otherwise enter the blood.
  • Aluminum in Zeolite is tightly bound in the zeolite crystalline structure.
  • As a matter of fact, if Zeolite encounters aluminum ions or other heavy metal ions in the body it will trap them and carry them out of the body.
  • Consider that many people daily eat salt, which contains two terribly poisonous substances, sodium and chlorine. Sodium by itself can kill you and chlorine by itself can kill you. Yet, we eat salt without fear because of the way salt is put together and tightly bound.
  • The same principle applies to zeolite. It is put together in a way that is going to benefit you, not hurt you.

Answer: We recommend Zeolite for all of the following: plants, animals and people.

Zeolite makes greener lawns and healthier plants, animals and people, both by increasing nutrition and especially by trapping harmful substances so that they do no damage. For instance, with plants, Zeolite prevents the uptake of arsenic and even radiation from the soil. As an example, after the Chernobyl reactor accident, the Russian government spread hundreds of millions of pounds of zeolite on the ground to trap the radiation. As a result, the foliage in this area has blossomed as never before.

However, as always, we always encourage people to discuss their plans with a health professional who is treating you as a unique individual. We are not health care professionals, and more importantly, we are not your health care professional, and therefore cannot be responsible for your health decisions.

Even if you were considering exercising, drinking more water or eating more fruits and vegetables, things that are commonly believed to be good for virtually everyone, there are dangers in the uniqueness of each individual. What is good for 999,999 out of 1,000,000 people might be bad for you. That’s why you would do well to discuss your health plans with a health care professional who knows you individually.

Answer: We recommend one to a maximum of 5 teaspoon servings spread out during the day depending on a person’s “estimation” of their toxic load and depending on how one feels at a particular dosage. Zeolite can cause constipation in higher doses.

One could even take more zeolite than five teaspoons if highly toxic. Some people have taken up to ten teaspoons a day for a period of time (with a lot of extra water to avoid constipation). A possible gauge other than how one feels for determining a dosage could be the urine and stool smell. A bad smelling stool means ammonia is present in the stool. So, when the urine and stool becomes odorless, that zeolite dosage is just about perfect.

Answer: Yes. In fact, the Russian government gave zeolite to large numbers of children to detoxify them from radiation following the Chernobyl reactor meltdown. It is well known that by birth children have already absorbed a large amount of toxins from their mothers while gestating and continue to do so while nursing. We do recommend, however, waiting until a child is at least a year old and eating solid foods. We also recommend using smaller serving sizes than for adults, such as 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon (depending on size).

Answer: There is no wrong way. We recommend consuming Zeolite in virtually any format - baked into cookies or bread, mixed in breakfast cereal, added to morning coffee, mixed in beverages of any type.

Mixed in cookies was how zeolite was used to remove radiation from Russians who were contaminated after the Chernobyl incident. Zeolite ability to remove toxins is not disturbed by cooking or baking. Please note that “starting slower” is ALWAYS better. We recommend starting at 1/2 to one teaspoon per day and increasing slowly from there.

Answer: So, let’s review the differences in zeolite types:

  1. An important difference between liquid zeolites and Zeolite is that liquid zeolites typically cost hundreds of times more than powdered Zeolites, when comparing gram to gram cost. Of course cost doesn't matter to wealthy people, but it may matter to someone who needs to budget carefully.
  2. A second difference is that liquid zeolites are usually ultra-cleaned. Ultra clean sounds very nice to modern day people, especially to women, but, it's actually not important, just like using somewhat dirty vacuum bags is not that important, either. The vacuum still is able to clean just fine even with a vacuum bag that's not brand new.
  3. A third difference is that liquid zeolites often have such small zeolite particles that the particles will enter the bloodstream and go into the brain as well instead of only cleaning the bloodstream through the intestinal villi.

In regard to # 1,

  • powdered zeolites are much more cost effective for general purification of the bloodstream, but if one's brain is highly toxic, too, there may be no better choice than to use a liquid zeolite.

In regard to point # 2,

  • powdered zeolites typically undergo only a minor amount of filtration and cleaning.
  • Liquid zeolites, on the other hand, are often treated at high temperature and chemically treated to clean the cages of any heavy metals they might have picked up over eons of time.
  • Wanting a zeolite that has undergone this ultra cleaning process could be compared to only using brand new filter bags each time one uses a vacuum. (Question: does a vacuum bag have to be brand new to be able to clean well?)
  • If you don’t use a brand new bag each time you use a vacuum cleaner then you can understand that zeolite doesn’t have to be absolutely purified in order to work. It just has to trap toxins and NOT release them into the body. As long as it does that, that’s all that is needed. And to evaluate this, all one needs to know is the CEC rating.

In regard to # 3,this can be important to consider. Two thought processes exist in regard to this point:

  1. The first consideration is that generally speaking it is better to only clean the blood from the intestinal villi without introducing zeolite into the blood (so that there is no possibility for damaging the kidneys which would have to filter those particles back out of the bloodstream). Small zeolite particles can get into the blood stream, but large particles cannot. That's why our zeolite is based on having a large particle sizes (Sieve size 30).
  2. A second thought process, however, is that occasionally it is important for zeolite to be small enough to enter the blood stream... in order to cross the blood brain barrier... in order to better clean the brain. This is why we offer ZeoHeal™.

While other zeolite manufacturers seek to nanosize their powders or ultra clean their zeolite liquid solutions, NRG Natural Zeolite has only one goal:

  • This goal is to maximize the toxin removing ability of our product.
  • To accomplish this goal we do not nanosize (ultra-grind) the zeolite crystals as that breaks up too many of the micro-scopic chambers of a zeolite crystal. A broken chamber cannot capture anything. This is evidenced by our much higher CEC rating.
  • The size of our zeolite crystals is such that it does not pass into the bloodstream, but works entirely from within the villi of the small intestines to capture toxins out of one's blood stream. By, not entering the blood stream, our zeolite will not cause extra work or damage to the kidneys to filter the zeolite out of the blood stream.
