Since zeolite is fairly new to the supplement industry, there is a lot of misinformation floating around out there. In the end, this misinformation leaves people confused and trusting the wrong companies with their health. One of the biggest topics that there is immense confusion on is milling vs. micronizing. The average zeolite supplement user doesn’t really know the difference. It took me a great deal of time and investigation to figure out what the difference was. And honestly, I didn’t even know that there was a difference until I felt sick from taking a certain zeolite product and needed to start looking into why one type of zeolite supplement is better than another.
Milled zeolite supplements should never be ingested! When I think of milling, I think of grains, like wheat, being crushed and pulverized between giant stones in an 18th century factory. Translating this image to modern day zeolite milling is not that far off. Zeolite milling is done at the mine itself. It is crushed and pulverized by machines, so that it resembles a gritty, sandy powder. After being micronized at the mine, it is sent to various industries to be used in products, such as cat litter, concrete filler, and ZEOLITE SUPPLEMENTS! Understanding this is key—if a zeolite supplement is milled, this implies that it comes from a commercial mine, since it is done at the mine for industrial purposes.
Furthermore, you should be very wary of milled zeolite because the pulverizing process of milling destroys the structure of the zeolite. No longer does the zeolite have a honeycomb shape, with a strong cage-like structure that surrounds and protects bonds with toxins. Instead, the zeolite honeycomb is destroyed, and is merely a bunch of broken, loose pieces, that can be potentially dangerous on their own. (This is why I felt sick after I took a dose of the milled zeolite powder! Who knows what toxic materials I ingested!) Read the rest of this entry
What Zeolite Supplements Should be Avoided?
Please note: I did not specifically name a company, but based upon the bits of information I listed, you will be able to make your own assessment on who not to trust.

Here is what to STAY AWAY from when purchasing a zeolite dietary supplement…
People love the idea of a liquid product because, compared to pills and powder, it is so easy to take. However, the mineral zeolite, cannot be liquefied! “Liquid zeolite” is mostly water, with trace amounts of zeolite. Don’t fall for this scam and pay $30-$60 for water and 3 cents worth of zeolite!
**Some people prefer the convenience of a liquid zeolite supplement, and that’s okay.**
If you would like a high quality suspension (liquid) zeolite supplement from an honest, caring company, please consider Zetox by Regal Supplements.
This phrase is thrown around to imply that the product has gone through some special process which makes it more effective. “Activated zeolite” derives from the idea of “activated carbon,” wherein carbon goes through a special process to make it more porous, thus increasing its surface area and making it more absorbent. Zeolite is naturally porous, and cannot be made more porous. The ONLY process that ALL zeolite used as a dietary supplement goes through is a cleaning and washing. Read the rest of this entry
What zeolite supplements can I trust?
When it comes to your health, there are not many products that can be trusted. Yet, there is one dietary zeolite company in particular that can, in fact, be trusted—ZEO Health. There are a number of reasons why this company is far superior to all others, and should be trusted above all others
1. ZEO Health is the original manufacturer of zeolite health supplements, and has been around for over 15 years. Although original does always mean better, in this case it does. The founder of the company did his homework, and had zeolite mines from all over the world tested for almost 4 years before bringing the product to consumers. Their zeolite is the purist on the market.
2. Also, ZEO Health’s zeolite has been used in medical studies to demonstrate the positive effects zeolite has on humans and animals. While inferior zeolite supplement companies constantly refer to these medical studies to sell consumers on the healing powers of zeolite, it is NOT the same pure zeolite that was used in the studies!
