The answer to this is YES! Zeolite does not interfere with digestion, so it is perfectly safe to take before you eat on an empty stomach, after you eat on a full stomach, or while eating and filling your stomach.
There are multiple zeolite products made by sub-par zeolite companies that have odd directions around consuming food and drinks while taking their health supplement. Many of these directions state something along the lines of, “Do not eat or drink 2 minutes before or after using this product,” or “Never consume on an empty stomach.” Zeolite has no adverse reactions with drink or food. (Ironically, many of the zeolite health supplements that list these requirements are in liquid form, which essentially means that it is zeolite powder in water.) Furthermore, zeolite doesn’t have some kind of special activation process that will be interrupted by eating. Rather, it can be mixed with any food or drink because it won’t interact or be broken down by the food or stomach acid. It takes about 6 to 8 hours for zeolite to circulate throughout the body and absorb any positively charged toxins it encounters.
Drinking Alcohol with Zeolite
Zeolite is known to lessen the effects of hangovers. In short, when the blood-alcohol level rises, liver enzymes work hard at detoxifying the body. When the blood-alcohol level is too high, these enzymes are unable to work fast enough, causing toxic metabolites to be produced. These metabolites poison the body, and create side-effects, such as nausea, headaches, and dizziness, which collectively are usually referred to as a hangover.
Congeners are a by-product of the distilling and fermentation process, which are toxic to the body and worsen the effects of hangovers. If large doses of zeolite are taken while consuming alcohol it can help relieve these symptoms by trapping and removing them from the body safely.
Fasting and Zeolite
Many people choose to fast as a way of cleansing the body. Often, this is done before performing a new detox regiment in order to “clean the slate,” so to speak. This is also true of some people who start taking a zeolite health supplement to detox. They are instructed to fast by misinformed zeolite companies that have not done the proper research, and therefore aren’t very knowledgeable about zeolite and how it works.
If one fasts, the toxins are still sitting in the body’s cells. If one eats and drinks, the toxins are still sitting in the body’s cells. They are not going to come out until the zeolite pulls them out, and whether or not you ate or drank anything is completely irrelevant to the detoxification process. It’s true that drinking only water for a while will help flush some of the toxins out, but not nearly enough of them.
Try Zeolite Pure
Zeolite Pure is the purest, most economical zeolite product on the market. It contains nothing but the most effective zeolite powder. The powder needs to be mixed into a drink or foods, such as yogurt or applesauce. So eat and drink as much as you like when using a zeolite health supplement! It will not affect the detoxing process.
