What is a ZEOLITE?
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (00:00):
So, let's get this party started, Lori, we're going to come to you in the beautiful state of New Jersey. Take it away, Lori.
ZOI Advisor (00:08):
Thank you, Denise. Thank you so much for having me on this, on this amazing zoom call tonight. So the big question, Dr. Nicholas, as Denise alluded to in the introduction, there is no question that the power of the water soluble zeolite is a true breakthrough in daily systemic detoxification. So quite frankly, as Denise had said, I believe it may be one of the biggest breakthroughs in our lifetime. So will you please explain to our listeners who may not even have any clue as to what is a zeolite please?
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (00:45):
Let's start with the word Zeolite. Zeolite is a Greek word coming from the word Zeo, which means “I boil” and the word Lite which is “stone”. So in the free translation, we could say that the zeolite is a boiling stone. Why boiling stone? It is a powder mined in a minefield, but if we warm this powder, we're going to see what are the evaporating zeolites were made many, many centuries or millions of years ago when volcano lava went into the sea water into the oceans. What we see here in this nice image is that the, this is when the zeolite is formed. Now, very interestingly, we are using zeolite coming from the state of Nevada for the ZOI Global formulations. So very interestingly at one period of time, there were volcanoes there and there was sea water. So zeolites are born when volcano lava gets into the seawater.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (02:13):
Okay. That's how they are made. Zeolites are crystals. They have, this is the basic matrix of the zeolite Crystallin structure. That’s how zeolites they are crystals? And they have a certain three-dimensional configuration that allows them to have the amazing properties that they must attract and retain heavy metals and other toxins. Now, zeolites have this amazing, as we said honeycomb-like three-dimensional and configuration. Now it's important to remember that zeolites have metals as part of this, the crystalline structure. Now the metals that are part of the crystal infrastructure and not toxic because they can't get out of the crystallin structure into our body, in the conditions of temperature, pressure, and pH that we have in our body. And that's the same thing. Why let's say bricks cannot get out of a brick wall that we may have in our house.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (03:37):
All right now zeolites have amazing properties, they can attract, and they can retain heavy metals and other organic toxins. Now, the difference between the ZOI Global’s zeolites and others, zeolites is that we have created the only water solution of water-soluble zeolites, So it's a big difference between powders and water suspensions that you can make using powders in the unique ZOI Global zeolites. We can say more about these ZOI Global zeolite, which is a zeolite that has the basic matrix of the classic zeolite crystal, but some amazing properties as we described in our free United States issued and never challenged patents.
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (04:53):
Thank you, Dr. Nicholas. You know, I think that once people understand the, the fundamental construct of the zeolite as we move forward, then they'll have a better understanding to see how that zeolite can be working for them in their body through very well-proven science.
