Zeolite, what is it, what does it do and where is it used?

Zeolite is a natural, inert, clay-silicate rock, which generally cleans and manages the environment in which it is found. Zeolite has a unique combination of properties that make it a special material, which is used in a wide range of applications. It could also be described as a filter or a molecular sponge. Zeolite, where…

Alternatives to antibiotics for farm animals

New strategies and commercial products must be developed to improve animal health and performance, based on their safety, efficacy and cost-effectiveness. The aim of this study is to summarize the beneficial effects of currently used alternatives to in-feed antibiotics, i.e. probiotics, prebiotics, organic acids, phytogenic compound sand zeolites on health and growth performance in farm animals (swine, poultry and ruminants)

Clinical evidence supporting the use of anactivated clinoptilolite suspension as an agent toincrease urinary excretion of toxic heavy metals

Clinical evidence supporting the use of anactivated clinoptilolite suspension as an agent toincrease urinary excretion of toxic heavy metals

Abstract Effective treatment of chronic illness resulting from the long-term buildup of heavymetals in the body, such as chelation therapy, presents numerous clinical challenges, includingundesirable side effects and unpredictable efficacy. Use of a naturally occurring zeolite, clinoptilolite, to remove these toxic substances may offer an efficacious and safe alternative to thetraditional approaches. This study was…

Critical Review on Zeolite Clinoptilolite Safety and Medical Applications in vivo

Critical Review on Zeolite Clinoptilolite Safety and Medical Applications in vivo

Abstract Unique and outstanding physical and chemical properties of zeolite materials make them extremely useful in a variety of applications including agronomy, ecology, manufacturing, and industrial processes. Recently, a more specific application of one naturally occurring zeolite material, clinoptilolite, has been widely studied in veterinary and human medicine. Due to a number of positive effects…
