Zeolites particles are natural, mineral based substances formed when volcanic ash crystalizes with salt water. Volcanic zeolites are probably one of the oldest and most versatile active ingredients used by humans. They emit a negative charge which allows them to work like a ‘magnetic sponge’ so they can absorb positively charged toxic substances including histamine, ammonium and heavy metals (lead and mercury), all of which can contribute to ill health. These toxins can be stored in ‘cages’ which run through the zeolite particles.
There are many different zeolites which have their own qualities, structures and compositions. Clinoptilolite zeolite has been shown to be the most effective form of zeolite, meaning it out-performs all other types of zeolite when binding toxic substances. This is why MANC® particles are made from only the highest quality clinoptilolite zeolite.
