Thanks to the honeycomb-like structure, 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.
Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals that are mined in certain
parts of the world. When volcanoes erupt, molten lava and thick ash pour
out. Because many volcanoes are located on an island or near an ocean,
this lava and ash often flows into the sea. Thanks to a chemical
reaction between the ash from the volcano and the salt from the sea,
amazing minerals like Zeolites are formed in the hardened lava over the
course of thousands of years.
What makes Zeolites so amazing is the fact that it’s not only one of
the few negatively-charged minerals found in nature, but it also has a
very unique structure. Zeolites have large, vacant spaces––or
cages––that allow space for large, positively charged ions to be
attracted to it, then trapped and eliminated from the body.
