Zeobind supports the body’s detoxification functions. Zeobind is made from a naturally occurring mineral known as clinoptilolite, which is a particular type of crystalline aluminosilicate in a family of compounds known as zeolites. Clinoptilolite is formed when volcanic molten lava comes in contact with seawater. The result is a 3-dimensional honeycomb-like molecular structure with a negative charge that is unique among minerals in nature. Positively charged substances are attracted to clinoptilolite’s negative charge. An ion-exchange is readily performed and the substances can essentially become captive within the porous, sieve-like architecture of Zeobind.
Zeobind's detoxification support takes place primarily in the gut and in the enterohepatic circulatory system. The natural adsorptive and alkalizing properties of clinoptilolite support gastrointestinal health, and can support normal pH and adsorb bile acids and glucose. Research has also found that clinoptilolite can support the immune system and act as an antioxidant. Experiments have shown that dietary use of clinoptilolite does not decrease important electrolytes in the body and has little or no side effects.
Clinoptilolite and other similar zeolites have been used throughout history for a variety of purposes. In the construction industry they provide a lightweight, easy-to-cut material for building. They have been effectively used in water purification systems. They can serve as a natural deodorizer. They have been added to livestock feed to prevent the growth of molds and animal exposure to aflatoxins and were found to have a positive effect on animal health. Clinoptilolite was also used to clean up radionuclides in the environment from nuclear waste fallout.
Research is finding increased usefulness for clinoptilolite and modified forms of the mineral, including support of skin health and more. This valuable ancient mineral is carefully mined, cleaned, dried, and prepared into a fine powder, using a proprietary process, for use in BioPure’s Zeobind. The product is free from fillers, additives and binding agents.
Serving size: 1/2 teaspoon (approx. 1.45g)
Zeolite (Clinoptilolite)............................................ 1.45g
(Hydrated; aluminum silicate)
Other Ingredients: None
1/2 teaspoon once daily a half hour before your main meal or, as recommended by your Health Care Practitioner.
As Zeobind does not dissolve easily with liquid we recommend that you mix it with water, juice or milk and drink it quickly. Can also be mixed with food.
Any nutritional supplement should be used according to the directions on the product label, and under the supervision of an authorized healthcare professional, to be sure there are no undesirable interactions with existing medical conditions or other prescribed medications. In the case of BioPure’s fine powder products, including Calcium Bentonite Clay, ZeoBind, MicroSilica, and Enhanced Matrix Formula (Matrix Electrolyte Powder), it is important to note that these powders are meant to be dissolved in liquid and swallowed orally.
Care should be taken to avoid inhalation of the powder dust. If inhaled, they are not immediately detrimental to one’s health, but research has shown that long-term inhalation of some powders, such as talc, may cause irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs.
Store in a dry, cool place away from children.
