Derived from volcanic aluminosilicate minerals, zeolite is made up of an absorbent lattice that binds to toxic substances, such as ammonia and nitrate—and removes them from the body. Regarding Lyme treatment, it’s often used as a toxin binder.
There are a variety of studies highlighting the benefits of zeolite, which include detoxification, reducing oxidative stress, immune modulation, and gut microbiota balancing, so this is certainly a substance worth adding to the list.
Some people report constipation when taking it, but that can often be remedied by increasing your intake of magnesium. Zeolite may bind to other supplements and medications, so be sure to take it at least two hours away from any other substances.
The cost of zeolite depends on the brand used — anywhere from $25 to $75.
