Zeolite is a volcanic mineral that can profoundly transform your health. And by no means is that an exaggeration. Mounting scientific evidence shows that zeolite can provide life-changing benefits to your health; from detoxing to strengthening your immune system.
Zeolite is also the only substance in the world that can effectively cleanse a wide range of toxins from your body. As far as supplements go, it’s a game-changer.
With its unique chemical structure, it’s able to trap heavy metals and toxins (which are waste residues of our metabolism) present in your gut and safely remove them via the urinary system.
It’s important to point out that our body is constantly and automatically removing toxins but the process could be slowed down by external factors. To make it simple, since there are so many ways you can get exposed to toxins, they build up in the body over time. That’s when even bigger problems arise.
Even in small amounts, these toxins can impair memory, negatively affect your gut health, plummet your energy levels, and make it hard to lose weight.
While it’s definitely a good idea to avoid toxins as best you can, it’s downright impossible to avoid them all. That’s why cleansing these toxins from your body is essential. Here comes Zeolite.
Let’s go through some benefits and I will leave at the end some go-to tips to choose the best Zeolite out there.
1. Alkalizes your body
One of the most well-known benefits of Zeolite is its ability to help the body balance pH by providing alkalizing minerals, while supporting kidney function.
Many foods (think white bread, rice, or any processed foods) are acid-forming in the body, while most green veggies are alkalizing to the body. Alcohol, pesticides, pollution, and even chronic stress also add to acidity.
An overly acidic body shows signs of strain such as headaches, chronic inflammation, mood disorders, persistent fatigue, and much more.
Alkalizing minerals help to buffer acid in the body. In a properly-cleansed Zeolite, the alkalizing minerals calcium, potassium and magnesium are inside the honeycomb cages. The zeolite cage gives the body the beneficial mineral and takes the bad toxin in exchange.
Since Zeolite can help your body get rid of heavy metals, it supports optimal kidney health, so your kidneys can efficiently balance your body’s pH.
2. Support a healthy gut
Leaky gut occurs when the lining of your intestinal wall has an increased permeability. This allows unwanted toxins and microbes to leak from your intestines into the bloodstream.
The result can vary from a weakened immune system, excessive fatigue, autoimmune issues, to skin rashes, depression, and intense cravings for sugar or carbohydrates.
And these symptoms only get worse over time if your leaky gut isn’t healed. The positive news is, evidence suggests that Zeolite can support a healthy gut.
3. Improve your mood
This superpower has not to be underestimated. Negative moods can affect your body in a variety of ways.
But here is my question: have you ever experienced a bad mood even though there is nothing to be sad about? If your answer is yes, this could be due to the accumulation of heavy metals, such as mercury, in your body.
Life can be stressful enough without heavy metals bringing you down. By helping to reduce the build-up of heavy metals, Zeolite can support a positive mood. Yay!
4. Strengthen your immune system
Zeolite has been shown to increase T-cell activity and increase the number of macrophages in the body: two cells essential for a healthy immune function.
But the immune benefits don’t end there. Heavy metals can suppress your immune system, making your body vulnerable to pathogens and prone to autoimmune issues. This means Zeolite can both increase the effectiveness of your immune system while simultaneously protecting it from heavy metals.
5. Deep Detox for your body
I have mentioned before that our body is capable of detoxifying on its own, but external factors may slow down this process.
We know that toxins are found everywhere. From the air you breathe, to the food you eat. Over time, these toxins build up in your body and wreak havoc on your health.
Never-ending fatigue, brain fog, a weak immune system, and countless health issues are common side effects when these toxins build up.
Fortunately, Zeolite is the master of detoxification. All thanks to its unique honeycomb-like crystalline structure.
You see, each chamber within Zeolite’s honeycomb-like structure has a negative charge. This negative charge attracts positively-charged toxins like lead, mercury, or nitrosamines.
In many ways, it’s like a magnet for toxins. So, when you take a properly cleansed zeolite supplement, it travels through your body trapping toxins in its “magnetised” honeycomb cage.
And since your body doesn’t store Zeolite, it just excretes it once it’s bound to a toxin. That’s why zeolite is exceptionally effective at removing built-up toxins in your body.
Now you may wonder why I recommend taking a Zeolite supplement if in previous articles, I have written about the fact that every micronutrient you need can be found in food. Simple answer, Zeolite is not a mineral found in food. But you can’t just pick any ordinary Zeolite supplement.
I highly suggest that you choose Zeolite that has been properly cleansed so it can capture toxins, and is sized so it can be absorbed in the bloodstream (Ultra-fine powders are just perfect), otherwise it will just pass through without picking up many toxins.
