Zeolite clinoptilolite crystals form naturally when volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater. Their unique molecular structure has been reported to act like tiny sieves that trap pollutants and toxins like heavy metals in a wide range of applications in many industries including water treatment, refinery, nuclear, biogas (a mixture of different gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen), detergents, construction, medical, agriculture, etc. Zeolite's focus is its benefits in the natural, holistic medicine field.
The molecular structure of Zeolite acts like a sieve that traps pollutants from the body's systems and transports them out. Milling the Zeolite clinoptilolite into a fine powder often destroys the very structure that is so beneficial in the detox aspect. Micronization is a more expensive process, but it maintains the quality of the molecular structure preserving the detoxifying action of the mineral. Micronized Zeolites are negatively charged which acts like a magnet in the bloodstream, attracting positively charged particles from heavy metals and other pollutants. It is reported to be 100% non-toxic, safe to take on an empty stomach and is completely eliminated from the body within 6 - 8 hours after ingestion. This is one reason why there seems to be no "toxic" related side effects as the toxin carrying Zeolites are quickly flushed from the system, eliminating the typical toxic buildup frequently observed in other detoxifiers. However, every body is unique and may react differently.
Glacier Peak's Zeolite clinoptilolite is a pharmaceutical grade, micronized (0.06 microns) powder of the highest quality mined in Idaho and has no taste or odor which makes supplementing your pets so easy! It has been shown to work on the cellular level, helping to cleanse and detoxify the body.

Zeolite should be mixed with a little water or broth and given once a day. Do not feed it dry. We believe it also should be given alone as has the potential to flush some supplements and medications out along with the toxins. Enzymes would be okay to give at the same time, but we suggest you wait at least 2 hours or more before giving any other supplements or medications. For normal detox use, use for 30 days, 4 times per year. Peak Immune would be a great addition - just give the Zeolite in the morning and the Peak Immune in the evening. If the pet is sick or pregnant, then it can be used for longer periods, however, you may want to consult with your Vet or do your own research before using this supplement. It may also be beneficial to take periodic "breaks" using a "30 days on, 7 days off" schedule.

**Somatic cell count (SCC) is an indicator of the quality of milk. White blood cells known as leukocytes constitute the majority of somatic cells in question. The number of somatic cells increases in response to pathogenic bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, a cause of mastitis. Essentially, a lower SCC indicates better animal health.
