What is ZEOLITE?

Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals that are created when volcanoes erupt and molten lava and thick ash flow into the sea. Thanks to a chemical reaction between the ash from the volcano and the salt from the sea, zeolites are formed. These Zeolites are usually are encased in the hardened lava for thousands of years. Mining is the only way to free them.
Zeolites have the rare distinction of being one of the few negatively-charged minerals found in nature. They also possess a very unique structure with large vacant spaces or cages. The negative charge combined with this structure allows for large, positively charged ions to be pulled into the Zeolite cage and trapped.
When ingested as a supplement, a zeolite works at the cellular level to trap allergens, heavy metals and harmful toxins. In fact, because it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, a zeolite acts as a magnet, drawing toxins to it, capturing them in its cage, and removing them safely and naturally from your body. This unique ability to remove dangerous toxins is so well documented; it was used by the Russian government to absorb radioactive chemicals and other harmful toxins after the Chernobyl disaster. For centuries, the powdered forms of specific zeolites have been used as traditional remedies throughout Asia to promote overall health and wellbeing.
We source our Zeolite from one of the only mines in the world, mining specifically for human consumption. Our products are manufactured in an FDA licensed and certified GMP pharmaceutical facility. We have verified the safety of our products with independent lab toxicology studies and maintain a high level of quality control.
How to recognize a quality zeolite supplementThe Cleaning Process of the Zeolite in Magical Elements We start with the cleanest zeolite which is mined specifically for human consumption (the only mine in the world that does this). The zeolite is then intensely washed with purified water and prepared to ensure a standardized cat-ion capacity and clean cage. The zeolite is then put through rigorous quality control tests to ensure its quality and safety is maintained for human consumption. It is thoroughly dried and then MICRONIZED to the smallest powdered particle size thus allowing it to penetrate throughout the body and even through the blood brain barrier to safely remove disease causing toxic heavy metals that include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, barium and other toxic chemicals.
Milled vs. Micronized Zeolite
The easiest way to identify a commercial grade zeolite is by the particle size. In order for zeolite to be used in any application it has to go through particle reduction after mining. There are two forms of particle reduction for zeolite, milling (resulting in commercial grade) and micronization (resulting in pharmaceutical grade).
All zeolite is milled once it is mined out of the ground. This enables the mine to transport the product easily and efficiently. The milling process is inexpensive, doesn’t require much expertise and delivers a product the suits most commercial standards. Commercial applications of zeolite include water and air filtration, soil treatment, additives to kitty litter and concrete as well as a cleanup agent for radiation contamination. Companies that use commercial grade zeolite generally don’t require the zeolite to be cleaned. Milled zeolite, although useful in commercial applications, is not suited for supplementation let alone human consumption without proper cleaning.
Particle reduction through milling will generally not yield a particle size below 20 microns. Micronization on the other hand can produce particle sizes from 0 to 20 microns. Without significant micronization, zeolite will not be small enough to travel through the bloodstream when used as a supplement. The micronization process also makes zeolite more efficient in attracting toxins by exposing more of its surface area while keeping the important cage-like structure intact. Zeolite must be cleaned and micronized to be considered pharmaceutical (or food) grade.
When faced with the choice of using a commercial grade zeolite or spending the money for a quality controlled cleaning and micronization process, many zeolite supplement manufacturers choose to use the cheaper, less effective, unclean commercial grade zeolite. Pharmaceutical grade zeolite can cost more the double the price of commercial grade zeolite to produce, but the results are a safe and effective product. The zeolite in our Magical Elements is cleaned and micronized with the strictest quality controls and highest standards for human consumption to ensure the highest quality, most effective products.
CEC Rating and Micron size
The CEC rating measures the ability of the zeolite to absorb toxins and heavy metals. Zeolites with higher ratings have better absorption capabilities.

This is a difficult question to answer and all depends on the individual person. Everyone shows toxicity in their body in different ways. Some may have bad skin, some may have severe medical issues. Based on the persons exposure to toxins and heavy metals, there are different levels in people. People also respond differently to treatment. Our general recommendation is to take the product for 90 days and then be reevaluated by your medical professional to see what progress has been made. Please make sure that you are also taking the recommended dosage based on your needs to ensure that you are receiving the optimum benefit from the product.
