What is Pure Body Extra?
Pure Body Extra is a natural way to detoxify your body of harmful heavy metals and toxins. Our breakthrough processes created a hydrated zeolite from whole Clinoptilolite zeolite and pure water. It is safe and gentle enough for everyday use.
How do I use Pure Body Extra?
Pure Body Extra's nanosized natural zeolite is delivered in a convenient, easy-to-use spray. To provide a continuous detox to a cellular level, simply take 4 sprays, 3 times per day in the mouth, then swallow. Pure Body Extra can be taken with or without food. While taking the product, increase water intake to support detoxification. When not in use, you can store Pure Body Extra in a cool, dry place. No refrigeration is necessary.
Can children take Pure Body Extra?
Yes. The zeolite Clinoptilolite has been granted GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status by the FDA. The serving size of 4 sprays, 3 times a day is based on an adult’s size, so reduce the serving according to your child’s size. For younger children, a good place to start is 1 spray a day, increasing to 1 spray 3 times a day. For school age children consider 2 sprays, 3 times a day. Increasing water intake supports the natural detoxification process.
How long can I take Pure Body Extra?
Zeolite is not stored in the body, passing through the excretory system (via urine) within 4 to 6 hours. Natural Clinoptilolite is safe for long-term, daily use and has been granted GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status by the FDA. Given the fact that we are exposed to heavy metals and toxins every day through the air we breathe, food we eat, and water we drink, continuous use is recommended to help offset ongoing toxic exposure.
Can I take both Pure Body and Pure Body Extra?
Yes. Pure Body offers the benefit of detoxifying the digestive tract and can be taken in conjunction with Pure Body Extra, which provides a systemic detox. Together, they provide whole-body detoxification.
Do zeolites remove good minerals in addition to the bad heavy metals?
No, zeolites only have an affinity for heavy metals and toxins. Clinoptilolite is a rare negatively-charged mineral. Most toxins and heavy metals are positively-charged. Like a magnet, the zeolite attracts and then traps positively-charged toxins before passing through the body. What makes zeolite so special is that it is highly selective and ONLY takes out toxins. During our proprietary cleansing process, the zeolite is filled with minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. When it takes in a “bad” ion such as lead, it gives back a “good” ion such as calcium to the body. That means there is NO mineral depletion. This swapping bad for good (or cation exchange) is what makes zeolite a highly effective and safe detox.
Is Pure Body Extra kosher?
Pure Body Extra does not currently hold kosher status.
Will zeolite remove dental fillings or hip replacements?
No. The zeolite cages will only capture and trap heavy metals and toxins that are freely floating in the bloodstream—it must come in contact with the individual positively-charged particle.
Why should I avoid zeolites supplements with vitamins and minerals?
To create an effective zeolite supplement, the zeolite cages of Pure Body Extra are filled with exchangeable cations of calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. The zeolite particles are then placed in pure water for a liquid zeolite suspension, ready to detox your body. There are other zeolite providers who mix zeolites in a liquid base of synthetic vitamins, or other substances. Synthetic vitamins can carry a positive charge. And while zeolites have an affinity for highly-charged toxins, sitting the zeolite cages for months with substances that carry even a weak positive charge could lead the zeolite to absorb those materials, and render it ineffective for detoxing the body.
Why is a liquid better than a powdered zeolite?
In addition to knowing the composition and cleanliness of the zeolite, particle size is paramount in determining the absorption of the zeolite in the body. Most powdered zeolites are large in particle size making it ineffective for systemic detoxification and unpleasant to drink scoops of powder in water. Individual sub-micron particles (less than one millionth of a meter) are not visible to the naked eye. The percentage of sub-micron particles in a powdered zeolite can be easily lost in the air moving it from the canister to the water. The proven particle size of Pure Body Extra ensures optimal detoxification and trillions of tiny particles are suspended in water so you get the benefit of each one.
What special processing does Pure Body Extra undergo?
We properly size the zeolite for maximum absorption and thoroughly clean it for effective detox potential; with third-party testing every step of the way. The zeolite in Pure Body Extra undergoes a proprietary milling process that reduces the size of each of the zeolite “cages” to the nanometer range. Many providers simply mechanically pulverize the zeolite cages, which can damage the cages and “break” the negative charge, rendering those zeolite cages completely ineffective. Our proprietary processing delivers intact zeolite cages, for negatively-charged zeolites optimally sized for absorption. We then “clean” the zeolite in a multi-step proprietary process that releases any existing heavy metals and toxins from the zeolite cages, removes them, and replaces those toxins with the exchangeable cations calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. These cations are then “exchanged” in the body when heavy metals and toxins are encountered, giving the body a calcium or magnesium ion in exchange for a lead, mercury, cadmium ion or other toxin. Even so, the “amount” of calcium, potassium, magnesium or sodium received into the body (in exchange for the toxin) is so minute it is not considered a form of supplementation of that mineral.
If zeolite is formed from silicon and aluminum, can aluminum be released into the body?
No. There is no “free” aluminum in the zeolite; it is part of the molecular structure of the zeolite. This form of aluminum is totally inert and does not interact with the body in any way, as proven in numerous studies. This is further demonstrated in our third-party tested chemical analysis, where the zeolite cage was dissolved using a strong acid mixture called Aqua Regia, and shows the chemical constituent of aluminum. The molecular structure of zeolite is indestructible in the body. Zeolites are neither water nor fat soluble, and the molecule can withstand high heat.
How is zeolite absorbed into the body?
When properly sized, zeolite is absorbed through the small intestine (villi). Most other zeolite supplements have a minimal percentage of sub-micron particles, so the majority goes to the large intestine for a limited detox effect. Pure Body Extra undergoes a proprietary process to create a particle size in the nanometer range so that it is fully absorbed into the bloodstream and travels with water throughout the body.
Are there any side effects in taking zeolite?
The zeolite Clinoptilolite has been granted GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status by the Food and Drug Administration. Since zeolites will attract water to facilitate the detoxification process, adequate filtered water intake is suggested (8 to 10 glasses a day). If any signs of dehydration do appear (headaches, tiredness), increase your water intake and reduce your zeolite intake for that day.
Why is only Clinoptilolite zeolite used in Pure Body Extra?
Clinoptilolite has been widely studied for efficacy and safety, with over 300 papers posted on the National Institutes of Health website (PubMed.org). Other zeolites have not been studied and while most types of zeolite are inert (like ours), some can be toxic.
What is a zeolite?
Zeolites are a class of mineral formed by the chemical reaction of volcanic ash with seawater. They have a three-dimensional crystalline structure of open pores or channels that looks like a honeycomb (or cage) and are one of the few negatively-charged minerals in nature. There are over 40 natural zeolites and as many as 150 synthetic zeolites used today.
How long does zeolite stay in the body?
Once consumed, the zeolite Clinoptilolite immediately encounters toxins and through cationic exchange, captures and traps toxins both within and on its zeolite cages. Zeolite is not stored in the body. The zeolite will stay active in the body for a period of approximately 4 to 6 hours, before being excreted through normal bodily processes. Given its short time frame in the body, the suggested serving of Pure Body Extra is three times a day for optimal detoxification.
What are the ingredients in Pure Body Extra?
There are just two… Clinoptilolite (zeolite) and pure water. Pure Body Extra is preservative-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and is all natural.
Can pregnant women take Pure Body Extra?
While the zeolite Clinoptilolite has been granted GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status by the FDA, and multiple studies have been conducted on pregnant animals, no studies have been conducted on humans. As with every supplement, each person should consult with their health care professional.
What is the difference between Pure Body and Pure Body Extra?
Simply put, what sets these products apart is particle size. Pure Body is sized to 0.4 microns (mean average) so that some will be absorbed into the bloodstream, and some will provide detoxification through the digestive tract. Pure Body Extra is sized in the nanometer range, small enough to fit inside water molecule clusters, for full absorption into the bloodstream. The hydrated zeolite creates a fast-acting and extra strength detoxification supplement.*
What are the health benefits of zeolite?
As heavy metals and toxins are removed, the body can function at an optimal level. Through supporting the immune system, trapping free radicals and helping to balance the body’s pH, you may find you have improved energy levels, a more restful sleep, improved focus and clarity, and an overall sense of well-being.* As a natural mineral, zeolites are not drugs. As a dietary supplement, Pure Body Extra is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Can I take Pure Body Extra with my supplements?
Yes! Whole food supplements are fully bioavailable to the body (unlike synthetics or isolates which can create a weak positive charge) and will not be captured by the zeolite in any way.
What toxins can zeolite remove?
The zeolite Clinoptilolite helps remove heavy metals and positively-charged toxins and Volatile Organic Compounds including:
- Radioactive Metals
How do zeolites work?
The porous nature of the zeolite “cage” and its negative charge, allows for the selective exchange of positively-charged toxins. Inside each zeolite are positively-charged exchangeable (lighter) metals known as cations, usually calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. These ions are only loosely held and can be readily displaced by other substances, such as toxic heavy metals or other organics in a process called cationic exchange. Zeolites have a preference or affinity for heavy metals due to the positive charge and fit of heavy metals within the zeolite cage.
Can pets use Pure Body Extra?
Yes, all animals can benefit from the zeolite Clinoptilolite. Since pets are often directly exposed to heavy metals and toxins on pavements or pesticide-treated lawns, they can benefit from detoxification. Simply spray in their mouth.
