Health Benefits of Zeolite

There are countless documented health benefits of zeolite, all of which I have observed with my patients over the years in my practice. Below I have listed some of these benefits, which I hope helps you better understand the healing powers of this amazing natural supplement.

What is Zeolite?

Zeolite is a unique mineral that has been proven to absorb the toxins, free radicals, and metals from your body, as well as boost the immune system. It has proved to balance the body’s pH and create an environment in which foreign cells cannot grow. For example, this mineral has been shown in independent studies to be effective fighting certain types of cancer, partially because it creates a hostile environment for cancerous cells to grow.

Purification, Detoxification, and Purging with Zeolite

We are constantly exposed to heavy metals, radiation, and other types of waste products release from industries into the environment. Overtime, these toxins build up in our bodies, creating an acid environment (or acidosis), which damage our bodies. Cell membranes become “clogged” and our cells slowly suffocate. Build-ups of heavy metal toxins (especially cadmium, mercury and lead) are the strongly associated with the development of many serious medical conditions.

Zeolite is Effective in Combating a Toxic Body

The particles of Zeolite are so fine that they can actually pass in between the body’s cells. Due to its extraordinary adsorption and selection capabilities, Zeolite binds with waste products, toxins, and, most importantly, harmful heavy metals, allowing these substance to be easily eliminated from the body. Zeolite is often used to eradicate heavy metals like lead and cadmium, and the build-up of mercury (like that used in dental amalgam fillings). Due to the alkaline properties of Zeolite, the body’s alkalinity can be increase and pH levels can be properly regulated.

But Zeolite can do a lot more! It is also a highly effective antioxidant, which means it neutralizes free radicals. Free radicals are atoms, or groups of atoms, with unpaired electrons. Free radicals are highly reactive and can do a great deal of cellular damage when they come in contact with other molecules. Overtime, they can be highly destructive to cellular components, such as tissues, DNA, and cell membranes. As a result, cells often function poorly or die due to this destruction.

Zeolite is a powerful antioxidant that guards against this cellular destruction. While most anti-oxidants share an electron with free-radicals in order to stabilize them, Zeolite absorbs the entire free-radical, thus permanently neutralizing its potential danger and destruction to surrounding cells.

Zeolite is the Super Detoxifier

Toxic chemicals, including poisonous heavy metals like mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium, are the worst problems faced by all life as we know it. We literally live in a chemical soup. The chemicals enter our bodies through the food we eat, the water we drink, and the very air we breathe. This situation actually threatens our survival.

Until recently, the only sure way to remove the most destructive heavy metals and toxins from our bodies was through I.V. chelation, a process both invasive and horrendously expensive. And even if we spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars on chelation treatments,  toxins eventually will just reenter our bodies with the next breath we take, next meal we eat, or the next beverage we drink.

Ingesting toxins is absolutely unavoidable. However, daily detoxing with zeolite will help to curb the damage any toxins could do by extracting them as soon as they are deposited. It is for this reason that I believe zeolite to be one of the most important substances for maintaining our health. Since detoxing with zeolite is gentle and lacks a healing crisis, there are no worries in taking it, and should be taken at least once a day.

Medical Uses of Zeolite

Studies have shown that zeolite has a high affinity for trapping lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury and other potentially harmful metals. Through the process of cat-ion exchange, zeolite can lower overall heavy metal exposure in individuals. This would have a dramatic effect in the risk reduction of certain cancers, heart disease, and any other sickness that may stem from or by worsened by the accumulation of toxins. A study was recently done on humans using zeolite supplements to document the amount of heavy metals that were extracted. Please click here for this study.

Zeolite buffers the system towards slight alkalinity by establishing pH levels of 7.35 to 7.45, which is the optimum pH for the body. The body’s pH level influences both immunity and brain function. An acid blood pH (7.34 or lower) creates a precondition for cancer. In an acidic environment, brain cell function can also be impaired, causing depression, anxiety, stupor, paranoia, delusions or hallucinations.

Zeolite is a unique antioxidant. A traditional antioxidant works by absorbing excess free radicals into its system because it has an impaired electron. In contrast, zeolite traps free radicals in its complex structure, inactivating and eliminating them.

Other benefits from taking zeolite include:

  • Stopping acute and chronic diarrhea
  • Raising the body’s antioxidant levels
  • Binding mycotoxins, forming stable complexes
  • Reducing side effects of chemotherapy/radiation
  • Stabilizing and regulating immune system

  1. My family has been advised to try Zeolite Pure to help my grandson in law . He has been sent home to die from colon cancer. He had one surgery , has a bag , would not do any radiation or chemo but starting eating and drinking only the alkaline way. Then the
    cancer went away in that area and he slacked off. It came back further down in colon.
    Doctors don’t like him because he would not go the chemo route and sent him home to
    die. He is only 32 and has a wonderful wife and 3 little boys under 5 years old. I have been told the Zeolite Pure would help him, what would you advise ad how much
    would you advise him taking??? I am going to order some and would really appreciate your intake. Thank you, Dorothy Reich

    1. Hi Dorothy,

      Eating alkaline is a proven and effective method for fighting cancer. When the body is alkaline, that is when cancer cannot grow. Zeolite works in much the same way- by keeping the body alkaline so that cancer cannot grow. It is also believed that it can activate the cell’s P21 gene, which acts as a tumor suppressor. I strongly advise that he go back to his alkaline diet, since it worked so well for him previously, but also to take the Zeolite Pure 3 times a day. He will want to spread out the dosages about 6-8 hours apart. This way he is constantly keeping the alkaline zeolite circulating in his body, and keeping the pH at a level where cancer cannot survive.

      I hope everything turns out well. Take care.


      1. What about cist? I have a non-cancerous cist on my thyroid. I started taking zeolite powder for one week now. I am taking it 3 times a day. Will this help shrink the cist?

        1. Hi Pam,

          Zeolite could possibly shrink your cyst. Each situation is different; however, zeolite has a very high success rate with shrinking tumors. Continue taking it three times a day.

          Take care,


    1. Hi Diego,

      If you have a small dog, give him 1/4 of a tablespoon of Zeolite Pure three times a day. If he is a big dog, given him 1/2 of a tablespoon three times a day. To feed it to him, mix it in wet food.

      Take care,


  2. Dear Dr Peiper.
    I am currently on peritoneal dialysis.Are their any contraindications for taking Zeolite
    I would be most grateful for you expert advice.
    with thanks.

    1. Hi Joseph,

      I do not know of any contradictions. Please check with your doctor to make sure none of the medications are metals based.

      Best Wishes,


  3. I was exposed to high levels of formaldehyde in 2003. That year I became chronically fatigued for about 10 months, until I found assorted therapies that helped including strong acupuncture aimed at clearing the liver. I am still chemically sensitive, need to avoid molds and have lots of resulting food allergies. Do you think the zeolite will help?

    1. Hi Marguerite,

      Zeolite may help. Everyone has toxins built up in their bodies, so this may be an accumulate effect, and not just from mold and formaldehyde. The zeolite will also help to keep your pH balanced and discourage the growth of mold. Take Zeolite Pure twice a day for at least 3 months and see if there has been any improvement in your health.

      Take care,


  4. You might have to truly have the remainder of the teeth after the process has ended, that tooth is done
    if they fall-out but changed.

    1. Hi David,

      A person with diabetes can take zeolite. Please check to see if any of your medications are metal based. I highly doubt they are, but if so, then take the medications and the zeolite at opposite ends of the day.


  5. What effect does zeolite have on the fillings in my teeth? Will it pull mercury out of the fillings & into my body? Do you recommend having mercury fillings replaced?

    1. Nick,

      Zeolite will not do anything to the filling. It will only absorb mercury that has been absorbed by your body. I do suggest you have the fillings replaced, but you must find a competent dentist who is well trained in extracting these fillings without further damaging your health.


  6. Hello
    My grandma’s kidneys are failing which has led to fatally high levels of potassium in her blood and the doctors have been unable to lower them. They say that she is not suitable for dialysis and they told us that she is likely to be in the last year of her life as her heart could stop any time due to the potassium.
    Would zeolites help in any way for someone with this problem?

    1. Hi Helen,

      I’m honestly not sure if zeolite will help your grandmother. Zeolite does absorb potassium; however, many zeolite supplements naturally have potassium bound to the mineral. When ingested, the potassium is often exchanged for heavy metals. The brand I recommend, ZEO Health, has calcium naturally bound in it, not potassium, but the charge of potassium is not strong enough to be exchanged for the calcium. If you decide to have your grandmother try zeolite, please make sure it’s Zeolite Pure, start off with a quarter of a scoop once a day, and carefully monitor her health. If you see it worsening, even the slightest bit, please stop administering the zeolite immediately. If you see improvements, you can slowly increase the dose to twice a day, and then a full scoop twice a day. Please go very slow with increasing the amount.

      I truly hope your grandmother’s health turns around.
