Why Horses Need Zeolite


Let us face it, horse people will do anything for their horse. From weekly chiropractor visits, shock wave therapy, to expensive supplements, we love our animals. But how can people protect them from things they cannot see? Like heavy metals, an acidic body, or poor absorption of nutrients?

Unfortunately, in 2022, heavy metals are found in about everything like animal feed, water, fertilizers, soil, pesticides, supplements, de-wormers and even medicine. The list goes on and on. But how does that affect our animals?

According to Zootec, “If heavy metals are ingested in excessive doses, they may be harmful and lethal. Showing problems such as gastrointestinal upset, hepatopathies, peripheral neuropathy, intermittent colic, mild anemia, as well as diseases related to musculoskeletal system, and kidneys.” If heavy metals are in everything, how can we protect our horses or agricultural animals from such toxins?

This is where CPL Zeolite comes into play. See there are many different forms of zeolite but in this specific paper we will be talking about Clinoptilite Zeolite abbreviated as CPL.

Clinpotilite Zeolite is a natural volcanic mineral that has a plethora of benefits to horses including detoxing the body of heavy metals, which then increases their gut health, performance, and general health.

What is Zeolite?

Zeolite is a natural volcanic mineral, which works as a detoxifier for heavy metals and other toxins. It was formed over millions of years when volcano ash settled on alkaline seawater. This resulted in a chemical reaction and created an extremely strong, negatively charged, cavernous compound. The unique negative charge of zeolite allows it to absorb dangerous toxins like a magnet by locking these toxins within its porous tunnels. Many refer to this as a “cage-like structure,” since once zeolite absorbs a toxin, the dangerous substance is locked within the zeolite structure and cannot be broken free. This means that zeolite safely and gentle carry out of the body any toxins it pick up as it travels through the body.
