Zeolite for Health
Zeolite detoxifies heavy metals and other pollutants from your body. Zeolite also eliminates free radicals and inhibits their formation. Heavy metal toxicity and the associated free radicals are the cause of many health problems, read more about them .
Another health benefit of zeolite is its slightly alkaline pH value of 7.4 which helps to neutralise harmful acid conditions. There is more information here.
Zeolite is a mineral supplement which supplies your body with a wide range of essential minerals and trace elements. Contact us for an analysis of Australian micronised zeolite.
Many health studies and clinical trials have been carried out on the health benefits of zeolite powder. These can be found on the Zeolite Research Studies page.
Hot particles are microscopic pieces of radioactive material, which can become lodged in living tissue either by being deposited on the skin or being inhaled. Hot particles deliver a concentrated dose of radiation to small areas of tissue and may cause reddening, ulceration, necrosis and a possible increase in the risk of skin cancer.
There has been a lot of research on zeolite being used to remove radioactive material. Go to the Decontamination page to read scientific reports on this subject and to Face Care Recipes and Body Care Recipes for other ways to use zeolite for detoxification.
Ammonia is not mentioned very much in any of these studies which is a pity. Ammonia is one of the most common toxic elements we come in contact with every day and it is very detrimental to our health.
Australian zeolite has a special affinity for adsorbing and removing ammonia which can easily be proven by putting some ammonia in a small bowl and sprinkling zeolite on top. The overpowering ammonia odour quickly becomes negligible or non existent depending on how much zeolite is used.
Consuming zeolite dehydrates your body. Before starting on a zeolite regime make sure your system is properly hydrated. Drink at least 2 Lt of water per day for a few days before you start then continue drinking water at this rate whenever taking zeolite.
If you are taking zeolite because you have serious health problems or as a detoxifying aid please consult your health practitioner first.
Only Grade 1 superfine zeolite is recommended for health purposes.
How Much Zeolite to Take
From 1 to 2 level or heaped teaspoons per day depending on your state of health and the reason you are taking it. 1 level teaspoon is 2,500 mg and a heaped teaspoon is 5,000 mg. In extreme cases, 3 or more teaspoons a day can be taken but only on the advice of a health practitioner. If you are taking zeolite to maintain good health, one teaspoon is enough. Have a break from the regime occasionally, e.g. take daily for three months or so then have a break for a few weeks.
It is recommended that you take zeolite approximately one hour before taking any medications or vitamin/mineral supplements.
How To Make and Drink Zeolite Water
There are several methods to make zeolite water from zeolite powder. You can use either Australian Organic Certified Superfine Zeolite, Activated Zeolite + MSM or Australian Micronised Zeolite. The superfine zeolite and micronised zeolite are exactly the same, just different brand names.
Dissolve 1 teaspoon powder in 1 Lt water. Drink glasses of this mixture during the day, stir first before pouring. The amount can be increased to 2 teaspoons in 2 Lt water daily.
Add 1 level teaspoon of powder to a glass of water, stir. Drink the whole glass straight away. Can be increased to 2 teaspoons a day. Drink 2 Lt water or more during the day.
Add 1 level teaspoon of powder to a glass of water, stir.
Leave the zeolite water for 20 minutes before drinking. This lets the larger particles settle to the bottom of the glass. The finer particles which are left floating in the water act in a similar way to TMAZ and are easily absorbed by the body.
The sediment can be stored and used later in first aid or skin care. If you are using Activated Zeolite + MSM, the MSM will dissolve completely into the water and will not be left in the sediment.
How to Eat Zeolite Powder
Most people prefer to drink zeolite water but some people eat zeolite powder by sprinkling it onto cereal or using it to thicken sauces or soups. Only superfine zeolite or micronised zeolite can be used this way, not Activated Zeolite + MSM as the MSM has a strong flavour.
