‘Zeolite’ is a generic name for the aluminum silicates of alkali and earth-alkali metals. In general, the group of natural zeolites includes 45 minerals with 25 various structure types, some of them possessing extremely valuable uses for human application. Today, we would like you to get acquainted with one of the unique types of zeolite, the mineral of Siberian origin.
‘Boiling stone’ is the literal translation of Zeolite from Greek and it describes the history of this mineral in the most precise way. During the historical era of the dinosaurs, more than 150 million years ago, in places where volcanos were located near water, the ideal preconditions for the formation of Zeolites on Earth have been formed.
Crystal structure of zeolite is a frame of anionites of silicium and aluminum, which is similar to a honeycomb structure, a specific molecular strainer, carrying the cations, containing the widest range of macro and microelements, needed by the human body.
Zeolite has unique stability; its structure is surprisingly resistant to heat as well as the reaction with the hydrochloric acid of the stomach fluid and any digestive ferments. After the elimination of the natural water its free intracrystalline space increases up to 50% of the total volume, making this mineral one of the most effective absorbents found in nature.
Due to precisely calibrated exit pores (from 3 to 6 Angstrom units), zeolite of the Siberian origin is capable of selective absorption of unique selectivity. Toxins, low molecule carcinogens, and multiple preservatives will be absorbed and flushed out of the human body, and necessary and useful proteins, vitamins, ferments and other vital substances, whose molecular structure is larger, will remain untouched.
Besides, one of the scientifically proven observation is that zeolite is sometimes 100 times more effective than other absorbents ‘in vitro’ conditions. Zeolite of Siberian origin is an ideal sorbent due to its unique and extremely precious catalytic properties.
One more peculiarity of zeolite extracted in Siberia is that it is full of necessary macro and microelements for the human body in a biologically-accessible cation form. In the context of ionic exchange, we might observe the process during which essential mineral elements are carried into the human body from zeolite and toxic and carcinogen low molecular compounds replace them, and are effectively flushed out of the body in a harmlessly and naturally. It is due to this double effect that Siberian zeolite is called a ‘selective donor sorbent.’
Apart from the reaction with the intestinal content of the human body, we may observe an active reaction of zeolite with the lymphatic and circulatory system in the parietal and epithelial areas of the digestive tract. This double reaction allows zeolite to have a positive impact on the condition of internal organs and the circulatory system without physically entering the blood.
At present, we are aware of around 1,000 zeolite deposits around the world. The quality of the natural mineral may vary substantially. Many zeolites have crystalline structures which are capable of damaging the mucus of the digestive tract. Some of the deposits are next to the deposits of Uranium or bauxites and may carry particles of those dangerous compounds on their internal surface.
There are also minerals with weak absorption activity. For example, in New Jersey, USA, as well as in the suburbs of Golden, Colorado, zeolites are widespread in the locations of young volcanic activity with low activity of breaking the microcrystal surface. As a result, the minerals are not of tetrahedron shape; thus, their absorption and ion-exchange properties are affected negatively.
Clinoptilolites are the ideal forms of zeolite when combining their bio-gene properties (absorption, ionic exchange, catalysis, etc.). The form of plasters with levelled angles is the most acceptable for ingestion, because it does not traumatize the mucus, and the dimension of parts excludes the absorption by the circulatory and lymphatic systems as well as probable negative pharmacokinetic consequences for our body.
It is this type of high-quality clinoptilolite that is being extracted at the Holin origin in Siberia. The main rock-forming mineral of the natural zeolite of Holin origin is high-content-silicium zeolites of the exclusive clinoptilolite family. The deposit is located in an ideal ecological environment and is fully isolated from all sources of pollution and radiation. It makes this deposit a unique resource of this precious mineral.
All extracted raw mineral goes through a process of thorough purification and verification for the presence of any impurities. The unique technology of cascade mechanical and thermic activation, patented by the producer, Nov Company Ltd., ensures total exclusion from any contact with chemically active substances. Mechanical and thermic activation processes are needed to eliminate the so-called ‘zeolite’ water and mineral impurities to obtain the product with selective absorption and ion exchange properties.
Nov Co. Ltd., represented in North America by Mineral Medix Corp., produces a series of patented (Patent#: US 6287576 B1) zeolite-based products. All of them are selective entero and donor sorbents with extremely pronounced ion exchange properties. Apart from their basic properties, each one of these products has unique peculiarities due to the addition of various natural components, enhancing some of their properties depending on the intended use of the product.
