When it comes to zeolite, I know how badly people want and need a good product that works. The marketing unfortunately often obscures the facts, and confuses people unnecessarily. Most people aren’t scientists, and that makes it incredibly difficult to cut through the zeolite powder versus liquid zeolite rhetoric and get to the facts.
There are a number of liquid zeolite brands on the market today. Liquid zeolite was made popular by the Multi Level Marketing company with their product Original Liquid Zeolite. The product was wildly popular for a time, and inevitably copy cat products started popping up, with all kinds of different additives. Today there are many ‘liquid zeolite’ products in dropper bottles.
The liquid zeolite products on the market are minute amounts of powdered zeolite suspended in liquid, most often with humic or fulvic acid, but sometimes just water.
Companies are also starting to put things like DHQ (an anti-oxidant), chlorella (a sea green), vitamins and other things in the liquid zeolite product in an effort to beef up their offering and distinguish themselves from an ever growing crowd.
The liquids have their place… for example for children or pets who have trouble swallowing the powder or capsules, but mostly these products have so very little zeolite that it’s going to take a lifetime and a large bank account to do any good.
Zeolite powder has a particular advantage over the liquid products. Since all of the studies used this form of zeolite in their studies, it is easy to prove the benefits, and also to get the dosage used in the studies. The liquid forms have, for the most part, tiny amounts of zeolite so it is nice to be able to get an effective amount easily in one serving.
Since zeolite liquid is really just small amounts of zeolite powder suspended in liquid, it stands to reason that the choice comes down to price, convenience, and quality.
The liquid products are easy to take because you can simply drop them in water, or juice, or even just squirt them into your mouth.
The powdered products are a little less convenient because you have to scoop some out and mix with water before you take it. For people who find that time consuming, or for children who won’t drink a glass full of powder mixed in water the zeolite powder is not the best choice, however for most people, this is the preferred method of delivery.
Unclean zeolite doesn’t work as well, because it is already pretty full of toxins. Some people buy zeolite powder because they get a better price, but don’t take into account whether the product is properly processed for human consumption. There are several companies who use commercial grade zeolite in their product, and then do not clean it before packaging.
There is a company selling the powdered form of this mineral that has a mine that is only used for supplements. It is an extremely clean zeolite starting out, because of this. Then they clean their product using a cat-ion exchange, which results in a very clean product.
One liquid company has made a name for themselves by insisting that they have the only clean activated product, but in today’s market, this is simply not true any more.
If you don’t mind scooping a powder into a glass and mixing in with water, my choice is clean, micronized zeolite powder obtained from a mine dedicated only to supplementation, and not for commercial purposes. I prefer pure zeolite powder.
