Although generally regarded as safe by the FDA and many people experience no measurable side effects, there have been mild symptoms reported by some individuals while undergoing all-natural liquid cellular zeolite therapy, usually occurring at the onset.
Typically, such side effects are harmless and related to either dehydration resulting from the mineral zeolite’s binding action or to the detoxification process that can produce withdrawal-like symptoms, to be expected when cleansing the body of heavy metals such as mercury and lead and other toxic substances. This is why it is important to drink plenty of fluids while taking zeolite and lower the dosage until any undesirable side effects subside.
Most of the other common side effects are also related to dehydration or to the body’s own natural inflammatory response as toxins are liberated and removed, and can include feeling fatigued, achy, and nauseated, or experiencing headaches, rashes, cold-like symptoms, constipation or diarrhea. Again, these are more likely to occur at the beginning of the detox treatment and are usually transient.
Even if minor uncomfortable side effects initially present as the body adjusts to the cleansing process, customers can take comfort in knowing that zeolite is a completely safe and natural oral chelation option for both adults and children with no known serious side effects.
As zeolite works by drawing out toxic substances from the body, it may also bind to or interfere with other ingested substances including iron, herbs, natural medicines and pharmaceutical drugs, therefore it is often recommended that zeolite be taken alone to be most effective for optimal healing, and not close to the time that other medications are administered. An iron supplement or increased iron in the diet may also be beneficial while using zeolite, especially if anemic.
Overall, zeolite is an exceptionally safe, non-toxic, and effective means when taken as directed to chelate and remove heavy metals and other poisons from the body naturally with no significant side effects.
