Product: Pure Body Extra Strength
Pure Body Extra Strength is a Zeolite product, and actually what lead me to learn about Touchstone Essentials (the company who makes most of the supplements that I recommend). In my on-going learning, in 2018 I was studying more and more about toxins in the body and how they can effect weight - both weight gain and (lack of) weight loss, and it became clear that a "detoxing" regimen could help some of my weight loss clients. But finding superior quality, effective products that are easily available is not as easy as I thought it would be.
To my delight, a friend (an 81 year old friend who has been an engineer and practically everything else in his life and loves to research health stuff) told me about Zeolite, and then mentioned that he takes a product called Pure Body ...
So I did my due diligence and learned more about zeolite, as well as the company Touchstone Essentials, was pretty impressed with what I found, and started offering Touchstone Essentials' detox products to my clients. Yay!
What It Is & What It Does
The not-too-nerdy description:
Zeolite is a mineral that acts like a sponge. It even looks kind of like a microscopic sponge. Zeolite attracts and traps heavy metals and positively-charged toxins and Volatile Organic Compounds including:
- Radioactive Metals
You ingest zeolite, and, as it travels throughout your body, it traps all of this nasty stuff, and then the zeolite gets out of Dodge - The zeolite will stay active in your body for approximately 4 to 6 hours - then it is eliminated from your body, through the normal processes (peeing, and stuff).
Zeolites are a type of mineral that 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.
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. Zeolites have a preference or affinity for heavy metals due to the positive charge and the perfect fit of heavy metals within the zeolite cage. Zeolite attracts and traps heavy metals and positively-charged toxins and Volatile Organic Compounds including the above list.
A specific zeolite, called zeolite Clinoptilolite, is what is used in the Pure Body Extra Strength product. Numerous studies attest to the selective nature of the zeolite Clinoptilolite, to ONLY take out toxins, and never any good nutrients. Freshly mined, in its raw state, the mineral Clinoptilolite doesn’t do much. Its crystalline structures are pre-filled with pollutants, and it’s too big to be absorbed by the body. But Touchstone Essentials has a proprietary cleansing process that loads the zeolite with beneficial minerals so it always replaces a bad toxin with a good mineral.
If the zeolite that is consumed is small enough, it is absorbed through your small intestine. Once consumed, the zeolite Clinoptilolite immediately encounters toxins and through the cat-ionic exchange of trading beneficial minerals (loaded into the zeolite) for toxins (in your body), zeolite both captures and traps toxins, within and on its zeolite cages. Zeolite is not stored in the body - It stays active in the body for a period of approximately 4 to 6 hours, before being excreted through normal bodily processes.
Voila! Goodbye heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and other toxins!!
Worldwide, scientists have conducted extensive research on the mineral zeolite Clinoptilolite. First identified for its ability to remediate wastewater, Clinoptilolite was later used in radiation removal (Chernobyl), and agricultural feed before being recognized for its detoxification benefits for humans.
How To Use It
All you do is spray it in your mouth and swallow it. Just like water, Pure Body Extra Strength is colorless, odorless and tasteless, and it takes only about 3 seconds to take.
Given its short time frame in the body, the suggested serving of Pure Body Extra Strength is three times a day for optimal detoxification. I use Pure Body Extra Strength every day.
Why Pure Body Extra Strength is better
Natural zeolite: While synthetic zeolites are used in industrial applications, human and animal studies show benefit with whole, natural zeolite.
Clean: Crushed up raw zeolite, with its crystalline structures filled with pollutants and too big to be absorbed by the body, is what you’ll find in most zeolite supplements on the market today. Pure Body Extra Strength uses natural zeolite that is cleansed using a natural, proprietary process. That means the zeolite in it is free of existing pollutants.
Tiny: 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. Unlike powdered zeolites, Pure Body Extra Strength uses a unique activated hydrated zeolite optimized to reach to a cellular level.
In fact, Touchstone Essentials uses breakthrough sound wave technology to create the world’s first colloidal zeolite. The colloidal zeolite in Pure Body Extra Strength is so small, with particle size in the nanometer range and suspended inside water molecules, it is absorbed through the small intestine and is fully absorbed into the bloodstream and travels with water throughout the body. These innovations are unique to Pure Body Extra Strength, and create a fast acting and extra strength detox.
