If taking ZOI ClearDrops, are humic acids and fulvic acids supplements needed for further detoxification purposes?
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (00:00):
Okay, Laurie, we're coming to you. It's your turn.
ZOI Advisor (00:03):
All right. So Dr. Nicholas, I have a really powerful question tonight being in Utah right now, agricultural chemicals right now are being sprayed, not just in Utah, but in Indiana. And I know that recently I've listened twice now to their Lori Lee's agricultural toxin webinar (Wellness Wednesday Wellcast). And so, I have a question because in the farming communities where I am, and I'm educating a lot of farming families on the importance of detoxification from all these dangerous agricultural chemicals, I hear a lot about humic acid and fulvic acid being used for detoxification purposes. Now, with ZOI ClearDrops are either of these supplements necessary for further detoxification purposes.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (01:04):
Thank you, Laurie. Thank you very much. I know how your practice, where do you practice? And yes, these people need support because they are heavily exposed to water, soluble toxins, especially herbicides and pesticides, but this is another, another marketing over science matter. All right, actually there is not humic acid, fulvic acid, it's humic acids and fulvic acids I plural. These are two families or organic acids that share seemingly similar physical chemical characteristics. Now humic acids cannot be absorbed in the gut. They can just stay in the gut. Now, these organic acids and as many other plant derived substances from cilantro and chlorella can capture a heavy metal. Let's say, but these are not true strong binders. A weak binder the metal of the toxin will be released a little later and will be absorbed. So the net is zero. Now.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (02:21):
What's going on here? It's a little annoying at night as a former medicines distributor for medicines, professional strength products, then, you know, the product ClearDetox Pro we terminated them. There were distributors of these formulation under their own name. It was private label for them. And we terminated this distribution agreement because they breached several times. Now, after that, they sued Metron alleging that Metron committed the fraud alleging that Metron breached this distribution agreement. And this ended up in litigation here in Cleveland, February 2020, we had an eight out of eight jurors unanimous during decision that this company breached Metron’s distribution agreement and Metron was very right to terminate them, and they granted damages to Metron. And now this company posted the bond for $600,000. Okay. And they filed an appeal and we are certain that we will prevail in this appeal.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (03:43):
More interestingly, this company immediately after we terminated the distribution agreement we had with them, for the professional strength products, they created a knockoff product. Guess what they added invert cheap water suspension of zeolite that they have, guess what they added. They added humic acid and fulvic acid to make it better Metron’s product. It is so annoying and sort of laughable at the same time. Apparently that low quality knockoff product cannot work. And they added this little Stardust called humic acids and fulvic acids in order to make it work to answer your question, no, you don't need any humic acid or fulvic acid cocktail. You are taking the only triple patented, water solution of water-soluble zeolite ClearDrops from ZOI Global? You don't need any further support if you're taking the real thing.
ZOI Advisor (05:13):
Thank you for that clarification, Dr. Nicholas, I appreciate it.
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (05:21):
Dr. Nicholas, Laurie was so excited to ask that question because she's right in the thick of, of this like you said, this pixie dust that's being floated out there that, oh, well, we'll add this and we'll add that. So thank you immensely for clarifying that for each of us. It's ZOI Global.
