Zeolite Dosage - How Much Zeolite Should I Take For Health?

small amounts in the bottles.


What do the Scientific Studies on Zeolite Say?

First, according to the scientific studies, the recommended dosage for general
maintenance and prevention is 2.5 to 5 grams. In practical terms, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon
of powdered micronized clinoptilolite will deliver the amount recommended in the
scientific literature.

There have been a number of studies and anecdotal evidence that using this mineral
orally could be beneficial in removing heavy metals and toxins, as well as studies in
which patients used the powder form as an adjunct to conventional cancer
treatments. The big question is, how do the supplements on the market today
measure up to the studies?


Zeolite Brands

The popular powdered is cleaned micronized zeolite powder with 5000 mg in one
measured teaspoon. That makes it easy doesn't it? 1 teaspoon a day matches up
with what we have learned. For acute health issues, the recommend 1 teaspoon 3 X
a day mixed in water or juice should do it.

This company also serves zeolite in capsules. Their encapsulated clinoptilolite
products have either 800 or 900 mg per capsule, so in order to get your 2.5-5
grams a day you would take 3-6 capsules.


What about Liquid Zeolite?

Liquid zeolite is a little bit different. There haven't been any real clinical studies on
liquid types, however, popular brands like Original Liquid Zeolite claim their product is
simply micronized powdered zeolite which is suspended in water. The label states
that there are 24 mg per dose, which means there are 2400 mg per bottle. (this is
1/2 the amount, in an entire bottle, than the recommended dosage in the scientific
studies. This is why I mentioned it is impossible to take too much of the liquid
products.)

In order to get the minimum dosage recommended in the study, one would need to
consume one bottle per day, for prevention. The company claims 24 mg 3 times a
day is enough, so that would mean the dosage for that liquid product is 3 drops 3
times a day. Some of their distributors claim one needs to take 10 drops 3 times a
day for detox, and 15 drops 4 times a day for an acute health issue.

Despite the fact that liquids deliver a much lower dosage, there have been many
testimonials on their effectiveness. While testimonials don't add up to scientific proof,
they are powerful in describing how people feel when taking a particular supplement.


What About Other Zeolite Brands?

I recommend that you read labels closely before you buy, to make sure you are
getting as close to the dosages recommended in the studies as possible. Since each
brand is different, you can now make a decision based on the label.

This will get more confusing as time goes on, and more products hit the market with
more ingredients in them. Companies can get away with now saying exactly how
much is in the bottle by listing it with other ingredients and calling it a proprietary
blend. Because of this, you should try to get a product that lists the ingredients
separately and has only a few ingredients.


Which is Better? Zeolite Powder or Liquid?

I think, from a dosage perspective, it is much easier to get an adequate amount by
using a powder product. However, many people find scooping a powder into a glass
and mixing it with water to be too messy or time-consuming. For those people, and
for children who won't drink a whole glass of powder dissolved in water, the liquid
form has found a great niche.

For everyone else, zeolite powder is proving to be an excellent way to take zeolite
every day.
