The fact that not all zeolite supplements are created equal is an extremely important concept to understand before blindly purchasing a zeolite supplement.
There are dozens of zeolite supplements on the market. Many disappear off the market within a year or two, and a few major brands have stuck around. But just because your friend has used a certain zeolite supplement for years does not mean it’s a quality supplement.
Liquid Zeolite is Ineffective for Detoxing
Zeolite liquids are usually on the cheaper end of the spectrum, which make them alluring to first time zeolite users who don’t want to invest that much to try out a product. On the other hand, some zeolite liquids are very expensive because they are sold by multi-level marketing (MLM) companies, which has huge markups so distributors can make profits.
What is really in Liquid Zeolite?
Any liquid product you get is not worth the money because it is not liquefied zeolite. Liquid zeolite is a tiny amount of zeolite powder in water. The amount of zeolite you get in a typical zeolite bottle is not enough to do any significant detoxing, even if you drank the entire bottle all at once. Further, if you pay $20 for a bottle of liquid, you are probably only getting 5 cents worth of zeolite (if even that much).
This is why it is always better to go with a powder or encapsulated powder product. You will get a significant amount of zeolite that will work to actually detox heavy metals from your body and improve overall health.
Many Liquid Zeolite Products Have Attractive Marketing
Since liquid zeolite products are a complete waste of time and money, companies have to make their products stand out against the competition. Some of the commonly used claims are ‘nano zeolite,’ ‘advanced zeolite,’ ‘ultra zeolite,’ ‘activated zeolite,’ and ‘cellular zeolite.’ All of these phrases are marketing nonsense that try to convince customers that their products has special powers. (MLM companies especially use these phrases to try to justify their high prices.) None of these phrases mean anything. As a doctor and expert on zeolite, I can assure you that there is no such thing as nano zeolite, advanced zeolite, ultra zeolite, activated zeolite or cellular zeolite.
What is Important in Finding a Zeolite?
All you have to worry about when finding a zeolite supplements is: 1. That it is a powder or encapsulated powder product, 2. That it is micronized and not milled, and 3. That it is very pure zeolite. The more pure the zeolite, the more it will detox. If it has low purity, this means that zeolite already absorbed many toxins before it was mined, and cannot absorb much more. It’s that simple. You can discover the purity of a zeolite by calling a company and asking to see lab results. I have never seen purity higher that 91-93% percent. I would be skeptical if a company told me their purity was higher, with no 3rd party paperwork to prove this.
