Zeolite’s mechanism of action against cancer cells is unique and unlike that of any other substance studied. It has the rare ability to take in a tremendous amount of positively charged toxins, indirectly neutralizing their effect in causing cancer. In the process, the zeolite develops a slight positive charge. It is then attracted to and pulled right into the negatively charged membrane of the cancer cell. When the zeolite moves inside the cancer cell, the cell’s P21 gene is activated. This gene acts as a tumor suppressor through its ability to control cell-cycle progression. The activation of P21 appears to halt the growth of tumors by directly suppressing growth signals.
WHAT IS ZEOLITE?
Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals that are mined in certain parts of the world. When volcanoes erupt, molten lava and thick ash pour out. Because many volcanoes are located on an island or near an ocean, this lava and ash often flows into the sea. Thanks to a chemical reaction between the ash from the volcano and the salt from the sea, amazing minerals like zeolites are formed in the hardened lava over the course of thousands of years.
What makes zeolites so amazing is the fact that it’s not only one of the few negatively-charged minerals found in nature, but it also has a very amazing crystalline structure. Zeolites have large, vacant spaces––or cages––that allow space for large, positively charged ions to be attracted to it, then trapped and eliminated from the body. Zeolite binds to heavy metals, i.e. mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, plastics, PCB’s, DEPLETED URANIUM, TEFLON, free radicals, pesticides, herbicides etc.
Due to the unique structure of the zeolite molecule and the fact that it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, it acts like a magnet drawing positively charged toxins to it and trapping these toxins within its microporous structure.
Zeolites contains cages or channels which are the right size to allow small molecules (roughly between 3 and 10 angstroms) to enter. Once the mercury, heavy metals or toxins are pulled into the cage like structure of the zeolite, it is carried out of the cell and eliminated by the body.
