Zeolites are microporous, aluminosilicate minerals commonly used as adsorbents.
The term Zeolite ( the boiling stone) was originally coined in 1756 by Swedish mineralogist Axel Fredrik Cronstedt, who observed that upon rapidly heating the material stilbite, it produced large amounts of steam from the water that had been adsorbed by the material. Based on this, he called the material zeolite, from the Greek ζέω (zeō), meaning "boil" and λίθος (lithos), meaning "stone".
As of January 2008, 175 unique zeolite frameworks have been identified, and over 40 naturally occurring zeolite frameworks are known.
Zeolites are widely used in industry for water purification, as catalysts, and in nuclear reprocessing. They are also used in medicine as antiviral agents ant heavy metals detoxifiers.
Zeolit® Powder is GRAS ( Generally Recognized As Safe) according to US-FDA . It is an 100% natural detoxifier, antiviral, and a heavy metal absorbent.
