What is Zeolite?
Zeolites are a group of micro-porous, crystalline minerals with well-defined structures of the alkaline or alkaline-earth metals. There are approximately 40 natural volcanic zeolite minerals and over 150 synthetically produced zeolites. The zeolites are unique minerals with a four-sided honeycomb structure and, rare among minerals, a negative magnetic charge. The effect of the structure and the magnetic charge is that zeolite draws heavy metals (including mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, aluminum, tin, excess iron, and even radioactive metals like cesium and strontium-90) and toxins to it and simply engulfs them. The toxins "check in" and they can't "check out."
Due to the unique structure of the zeolite molecule and the fact that it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, it acts like a magnet drawing positively charged toxins to it and trapping these toxins within its microporous structure. Zeolites unique structure contains cages or channels which are the right size to allow small molecules (roughly between 3 and 10 angstroms) to enter. Once the toxin is pulled into the cage like structure of the zeolite, it is carried out of the cell and eliminated by the body.
