A high Quality Natural Zeolite (CLINOPTILOLITE). 300 micron grade (96% passes through a 300 micron (0.3mm) sieve). Approx. 75% less than 100 microns (0.1mm)..
Zeolites are natural porous alumo-silicates which have crystalline structure and include almost all the chemical elements found in the body. Clinoptilolite is the most abundant member of the 48 minerals in the zeolite group. Its approximate empirical formula is (Ca, Fe, K, Mg, Na)3-6Si30Al6O72.24H2O. Typical mineralogical composition: 89% Clinoptilolite, minor amounts of other zeolites, cristobalite and tridymite.
Zeolites have almost all the elements of the Periodic Table.
In Russia and the United States zeolite (clinoptilolite) is used in the production of food supplements. In some other countries (e.g. Cuba) clinoptilolite has been used to produce an anti-diarrhoea medicine which is successfully used to treat dysentry and other gastro-intestinal disorders, including food poisoning. In Russia clinoptilolite has been included into a group of entero-donor-sorbents. In Chernobyl zeolite was used in the process of decontamination of the environment and the people from radiation.
Properties: Due to the EU Health Claims Directive we are unable to give information on any properties that zeolite may have upon health.
It is widely used for water purification, in fish tanks and water filters and general decontamination due to its high absorbancy.
USAGE: Clinoptilolite has not yet been approved as a food supplement in the EU so we are unable to give any information on its internal usage. Some EU countries (Czech Republic, the Baltic states, Germany) sell zeolite-based products which have been approved internally in these countries. In the US it is on the GRAS list (generally recognised as safe). We suggest you carry out your own research and if you decide to take it internally it will be your own decision. We are happy to provide you with the typical chemical data of the product.
