Why do people need a zeolite on a daily basis?
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (00:00):
So, Carrie, we're going to come to you for the second question, Carrie.
ZOI Advisor (00:06):
Glad to be here. And our question is, since I've been in practice using zeolites since like 2005, but our zeolite, the water-soluble zeolite for like the last six years. My clients understand exactly how to use it, why they should use it and they're using it daily, but we know that there's a lot of people out there, just the average person, you know, why should someone use this product daily?
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (00:35):
Let's see how they work. Okay. Very correctly. You said that back in 2000 5, 6, 7, 2009, 2010, there were zeolites in the market because zeolite has been used for centuries. The Romans use it to line the aqueducts. And recently like the last 10, 15 years have been used in dietary supplements. But all these zeolites were either powders or water suspensions, not a water solution. Now here's why we need the zeolite. Let me start by saying that zeolites were granted specifically the zeolite that we have in ZOI Global formulations. It is sodium aluminosilicate, chemical that's its chemical name. sodium aluminosilicate has been designated a grass status from the FDA in April 2012. Now let's see why you need a zeolite. Well, the toxins that we're talking about, inorganic toxins, like the heavy metals and organic toxins, like herbicides and pesticides are water soluble.
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (01:55):
That means unfortunately they can be absorbed by the human gut. And then they get into our blood circulation and they are distributed on several compartments in our body main compartments that they tend to accumulate out of the bones, the brain and the fatty tissue. We call it adipose tissue in medical sciences. Now let's not make a mistake. Here they go these toxins, the heavy metals and the herbicides and pesticides can go in any cell in our body. They just tend to accumulate more in three tissues, the bones, the brain, and the fatty tissue. At this point, I have to say that we do not claim crossing the blood brain barrier and get into the central nervous system. But we do claim with ZOI Global zeolites that cross cellular membranes and can be absorbed. So what we need, we need the zeolite that would be capable to act not only in the gut, but capable to be absorbed, circulate, and try to find these toxins exactly where they hide for these reason we need a zeolite specifically. We need a zeolite that can act not only in the gut. I hope this helps us a generally on why do we need a zeolite? Okay.

That's great. Thank you so much for that answer.
