Zeolite: is a Greek word which means ([ZEO] zein, "to boil"; and [LITES], "a stone"), are hydrated aluminosilicate (aluminumsilicate is any naturally occurring or synthetically produced aluminum silicate containing alkali-metal or alkaline-earth-metal ions. Such as a feldspar, zeolite, or beryl). Feldspars are a group of minerals, that have similar characteristic minerals that has a micro-porous structure (see below).
The term Zeolite, was originally coined in the 18th century by a Swedish mineralogist named Axel Fredrik Cronstedt who observed, upon rapidly heating a natural mineral, the stones began to dance about as the water evaporated. Using the Greek words which mean "stone that boils," he called this material Zeolite.
WHERE DOES ZEOLITE COME FROM?: Natural zeolites form where volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Zeolites also crystallized in post-depositional environments over periods ranging from thousands to millions of years in shallow marine basins.
HOW DOES ZEOLITE WORK IN THE BODY?: Zeolite is a molecular trap and has the ability to selectively sort molecules based primarily on a size exclusion process. Zeolite traps toxins and chemicals and carries it out of the body. It also crosses the blood brain barrier.
Zeolite minerals are negatively-charged, allowing them to exchange positively-charged particles with surrounding elements, without losing their structure. Therefore zeolite crystals act as "micro-sponges" that absorbs free radicals, carcinogens and viral particles. Its unique methods only complement existing nutritional supplements without redundancy.
ZEOLITES General Information:
Zeolites were used in Chernobyl Nuclear disaster to remove radioactive cesium 137 and strontium 90 before they reached the water table. Recently Zeolites were dropped into seawater near Fukushima nuclear plant, to absorb high levels of radioactive heavy metals present.
