I am often asked about zeolite side effects by those considering taking activated liquid zeolite. As a result I thought it would be a good idea to write an article about this subject.
First, in considering side effects, you should be aware that the medical system routinely lists side effects for their toxic drugs. The side effects are mostly caused by the toxins and preservatives used in drug preparation. Very few drugs are free from these components, so nearly all of them have an extensive list of side effects. To many Doctors, the idea that any treatment would be devoid of side effects is considered not only unlikely but impossible in their clinical experience.
Personally, I don't have much experience with side effects of drugs, because I haven't used any for many years, but I know many others who have. Many Doctors downplay listed issues, believing the cure is more important than the disease. Those close to me have been told a drug is safe, only to start having a variety of symptoms. A quick search on the internet demonstrated that everything they experienced was listed as a reaction for the drug! Some drugs have life debilitating effects taken over more than a very short time. Basically, they are to be avoided if at all possible.
Chelation vs Zeolite Side Effects
Although they downplay side effects of drugs, those of medical chelators are important to know about. These are small chemicals that enter the blood stream with a negative charge. As they move through the body, the capture heavy metals such as Mercury and Lead. Specific chelators are designed to attract a particular heavy metal. DMSA attracts Mercury, and EDTA attracts Lead.
There are two issues with medical chelation. First, they are not size specific. That means they also attract vital minerals, leaving the body with a deficit of essential nutrients. To counter this, high potency vitamins are recommended while on the treatment. Missing minerals are dangerous to your health and can cause serious problems. The second is that the toxic particles are attached to the outside of the chelating agent, so they can scratch, or damage organs on the way out. This includes specifically the kidneys and liver.
In comparison, Zeolite side effects are minimal. They trap the toxins inside the Zeolite cage and transport them safely out of the body in around 6 hours. Because the Zeolite cannot trap large particles, vitamin and mineral levels are unaffected. There are studies which demonstrate this fact.
Why Zeolite Side Effects Are Less Than For Drugs.
Natural Supplements such as Zeolites are different to drugs in that for the most part, they have few side effects. Simply put, it is because they are not toxic! Most Zeolite products will not enter the blood stream, meaning they are incapable of doing the same job as a medical chelator, but at least they are harmless. Any toxins within the Zeolite molecules will not release into the blood stream.
There is one Zeolite product that does get into the blood stream, and this, of course is the one we recommend. By capturing toxins at the cell receptors, your body is freed up to properly process nutrients and remain healthy.

The one known zeolite side effect is dehydration. Simply put, when you use Zeolite, you will feel a need to drink more water. Our bodies require 8-10 glasses of pure water a day anyway, so when your body craves this liquid more, you are going to be better for it! Just make sure you don't substitute coffee or coke. These definitely don't replace the need for water.
The information below comes from http://liquidzeolite.org
"Some users experience detoxification symptoms, such as headache, diarrhea, tiredness, or achiness – which are usually mild – when they begin taking liquid zeolite. After initial detoxification, most people report feeling better than ever. Biochemist Rik Deitsch believes that, in nine out of 10 cases, these are side effects of dehydration, and most improve when the person drinks enough water".
Zeolite Side Effects And Medication
As far as we know, interaction with medication is limited to those drugs that contain heavy metals. That means some chemotherapy drugs, radiation (Zeolite was used at Fukushima and Chernobyl to soak up radiation), and lithium, found in some antidepressants.
It is a shame that many health professionals either dismiss Zeolite as a fad, or simply are ignorant of their benefits. For this reason, despite the very limited zeolite side effects compared to conventional medicine, they may advise against the use of this mineral.
We believe that the benefits of Activated Liquid Zeolite are so great, and the safety so high, the small number of zeolite side effects are insignificant.
