Everything You Need To Know About BioPure ZeoBind
I’ve been a long-time fan of BioPure products. These are unique formulas and ingredients that are used by top integrative physicians including Dietrick Klinghardt the formulator at BioPure. Most of the BioPure formulas and supplements were born of necessity. Dr. Klinghardt is well-known for treating stubborn chronic illnesses the likes of Lyme disease, mold exposure, chronic fatigue syndrome, and everything in between. He is an avid researcher and formulator and has very strict quality requirements. Many of the BioPure supplements are little-known ingredients that are difficult to source.
BioPure has a separate website dedicated to European practitioners and patients. The website is available in both German and the English language. The same formulas are offered in the EU as in America.
If you follow Dr. Klinghardt’s work you will know that he is adamant about detoxifying the body and mind. He was among, if not the first to recognize that killing pathogens (Lyme disease or others) must go hand in hand with detox. It is not enough to kill a microbe; you must also support that dead microbe’s ability to leave your body. Otherwise, you stay sick and toxic. Many of BioPure’s supplements support various detoxification options.
ZeoBind - Detoxing Heavy Metals & Toxins
ZeoBind is one of BioPure’s most versatile supplements. It supports detox of heavy metals, mold toxins, histamine, viruses, bacteria, fluoride, and radiation. It is also an anti-inflammatory. BioPure ZeoBind is a powdered zeolite.
You might remember from your college science class that zeolite is a type of rock that is formed when flowing molten lava reaches a water source. BioPure uses a type of zeolite called clinoptilolite rock. It is formed by lava and ocean water. When hot flowing molten lava flows into the ocean, the result is a three-dimensional honeycomb-type molecule. Not all zeolite supplements are harvested from clinoptilolite.
There are more than 50 different types of zeolite found on earth. When shopping for a zeolite supplement, check the source of zeolite. The most effective is zeolite from clinoptilolite.
Various forms of zeolite, including clinoptilolite, have been in use for hundreds of years. In fact, zeolite has been used to help with water purification systems, natural deodorizers, and is often added to animal feeds to prevent mold growth.
How Does ZeoBind Work?
You can imagine ZeoBind acting as a kitchen sieve. It acts as a very fine strainer in your gut. ZeoBind has a slightly negative ionic charge. When positively charged toxins meet negatively charged ZeoBind in your digestive tract, they are joined together like a magnet. ZeoBind holds tightly to toxins until they leave your body through your colon.
A common concern with zeolite supplements is aluminum toxicity. ZeoBind is clinoptilolite zeolite, which is formed by at 1:6.5 ratio of aluminum to silicate molecules. In other words, there are plenty of silica molecules to bind to the aluminum so that you don’t absorb it into your body. Aluminum toxicity is associated with brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
If you are shopping for zeolite supplements, be sure to investigate the silica to aluminum ratio to protect yourself from excess aluminum. BioPure is my trusted source for clinoptilolite zeolite powder with a safe aluminum to silica ratio.
What is ZeoBind Most Commonly Used For?
ZeoBind is most useful in your digestive tract. It is useful for diarrhea, acid reflux, and other digestive complaints. It is also showing promise for slowing and preventing Alzheimer's disease.
ZeoBind is an important supplement for several complex inflammatory digestive issues: CIRS (mold exposure), IBS and IBD, leaky gut, histamine intolerance, and MCAS (mast cell activation syndrome). Medical studies have shown the following results with zeolite:
- Leaky gut: A human study showed that people taking zeolite improved their intestinal cells by 30%.
- In 2018 a study identified clinoptilolite zeolite as a possible treatment for IBS, ulcerative colitis, and colon cancer. Zeolite absorbs ammonium which leads to symptoms in both IBS and ulcerative colitis.
- Histamine intolerance: clinoptilolite zeolite binds to 80% of all the histamines in the gut if you take it within 30 minutes of eating.
- MCAS: In animal studies, clinoptilolite zeolite acted as a buffer between mast cells and lipopolysaccharides. The zeolite prevented lipopolysaccharides (lps) from activating mast cells.
How Do You Use ZeoBind?
When taking ZeoBind, I suggest taking ¼ teaspoon daily for general health. Higher doses are best for intensive detoxification programs. You can mix it into water, juice, or milk, or food if you so desire. I recommend using water. I also suggest that you use a wooden or plastic spoon to mix the ZeoBind into your food or drink, as a metal utensil can alter the charge. This could cause the Zeobind to be less effective at binding to toxins. This happens because zeolite naturally has a negative charge, and, if you remember from your chemistry class, the metal spoon can ionize the zeolite, making it less effective at attracting toxins.
All binders such as fibers, charcoal, pectin, and zeolite can cause constipation. Once toxins are bound in the gut, they must leave or they will be reabsorbed. Water intake is the key. I recommend at least 8 ounces of water each time you take ZeoBind. Ideally, you would take ZeoBind 30 minutes before eating a meal and 2 hours away from taking any medications. Here is a sample schedule:
- 7 am: wake up and take medications
- 9 am: take Zeobind
- 9:30 am: am eat breakfast
- 5:30 pm: take ZeoBind
- 6 pm: eat dinner
- 8 pm: take medications
Does ZeoBind Have Potential Side Effects?
Now that I’ve told you what ZeoBind is, how it works, and how to take it, let’s discuss some of the potential side effects. As I mentioned before, with other zeolite supplements you run the risk of aluminum toxicity with long-term usage.
With ZeoBind, there is little to no risk, mainly due to the silicon to aluminum ratio. I have found ZeoBind to be less constipating than charcoal and much more soothing for an inflamed gut. My clients prefer it because it is less messy than charcoal and doesn’t stain your sink, teeth, or clothes.
ZeoBind has relatively few side effects and can help treat, regulate, and manage numerous conditions. A final cautionary reminder to choose your zeolite supplement carefully. Make sure you use a trusted source like BioPure!
