ACZ nano® Extra Strength: Breakthrough in Selective Detoxification
In weighing the advantages and disadvantages of the evidence-based detoxification products available, the mechanism of toxicant binding is of primary consideration. Although profound in application, the binding action of Advanced Cellular Zeolite is simple to understand.
ACZ nano® Extra Strength selectively and irreversibly binds and removes toxic heavy metals, chemical elements, and free radicals through the urinary tract, without removing vital nutrients. This process is called selective detoxification.
The nanomized zeolite crystals of ACZ nano® Extra Strength selectively bind to the free radical in three key ways. The strength of the bond is based upon:
Depicted in the diagram, smaller Mercuric ions are pulled deeply into the nanomized zeolite cage structure and held securely for safe elimination, while Calcium and Potassium are “sieved”.
- The toxin’s charge density
- The toxin’s average molecular size
- A phenomenon known as “molecular adaptive-fit”
Detoxification by Adsorption
The uptake of toxic heavy metals, chemical toxins or other free radicals in zeolites is called adsorption. Adsorption (not to be confused with absorption) is the accumulation of atoms or molecules on the surface of an adsorbent solid, such as zeolite. The driving force behind adsorption is the highly polar surface within the pores of the zeolite structure. This unique characteristic distinguishes zeolites enabling an extremely high adsorption capacity for water and other polar components even at very low concentrations. Advanced Cellular Zeolite (ACZ) nano® crystals are characterized by a three-dimensional pore system, with pores of precisely defined diameter.
Pores of precisely uniform openings within these nanomized, crystalline structures allow for molecules smaller than its pore diameter, such as Mercury, to be adsorbed while excluding larger molecules, such as Calcium and Potassium, hence the name “molecular sieve”.
ACZ nano® Extra Strength adsorbs molecules of certain sizes while rejecting larger ones. Species with a kinetic diameter
too large to pass through a Zeolite pore are effectively “sieved.”
The following molecular selectivity series of Clinoptilolite is backed by atomic absorption spectroscopy studies. As you can see, toxic heavy metals are highest in preference of attraction.1, 2
ACZ nano® Extra Strength Molecular Selectivity Series
Traditional acid-based chelating agents such as EDTA, DMSA and DMPS have no preference of attraction. Agents such as endrate (EDTA) have high affinity for essential ions such as calcium and remove calcium simultaneously with toxins. If not carefully monitored, this draining of calcium electrolyte can be quite dangerous and bring on rapid muscle weakness and potentially cause heart damage. Acid-based detoxifiers remove a myriad of additional and essential nutrients beyond calcium to the detriment of health. A second issue with acid-based detoxifiers is the phenomenon known as “pull-and-drop”, where the chelating agent pulls out a toxin such as mercury from the tissues and then drops the mercury in the bloodstream. Free mercury will redeposit, and if mercury redeposits in the brain or vital organs, the patient’s condition is likely to worsen.
A safe and proven detoxification agent, Advanced Cellular Zeolite (ACZ) nano® Intra-oral spray selectively and irreversibly binds toxic substances, properties that resolve the aforementioned issues.
