Zeolites, especially clinoptilolites, have wide application in removing heavy metals from different solutions and wastewater. The detoxification capacity of the clinoptilolite sorbent KLS–10-MA, a modified natural Bulgarian zeolite, applied as a food supplement in conditions of an ecotoxicological experiment with conventional food and lead was demonstrated for the first time. Laboratory mice, inbred imprinting control region strain, were used in a 90-day ecotoxicological experiment. Animals… 
Modified Natural Clinoptilolite Detoxifies Small Mammal’s Organism Loaded with Lead II: Genetic, Cell, and Physiological Effects
TLDR
The detoxification capacity of the clinoptilolite modification KLS-10-MA used as food additive in small mammals, chronically lead-exposed, was proven for the first time and showed that the sorbent is practically non-toxic.
Zeolites versus Lead Toxicity
The workers in metal industry as well as the people inhabiting industrially polluted regions are Health hazard groups regarding the development of chronic heavy metal intoxication. Different means
Natural zeolites as detoxifiers and modifiers of the biological effects of lead and cadmium in small rodents: A review
The present investigation analyzes the literature about the toxicity of Cd and Pb in small rodents’ organisms and the role of natural zeolites as modifiers of the biological effects. An array of
Concomitant oral intake of purified clinoptilolite tuff (G-PUR) reduces enteral lead uptake in healthy humans
TLDR
Concomitant oral intake of purified clinoptilolite tuff reduced enteral uptake of 204Pb in healthy humans by approximately 90% and the reduced bioavailability is demonstrable by a decrease of204Pb tracer enrichment in blood and urine.
Clinical Evaluation of a Defined Zeolite-Clinoptilolite Supplementation Effect on the Selected Blood Parameters of Patients
TLDR
Monitoring of the relevant mineral and contaminants levels in human subjects supplemented with a certified clinoptilolite material within three clinical trials with different supplementation regimens found increased levels of lead (Pb) were observed in PMA-zeolite-supplemented subjects, which decreased in the continued long-term supplementation trial.
Critical Review on Zeolite Clinoptilolite Safety and Medical Applications in vivo
TLDR
This work focuses on the safety of the clinoptilolite material and the positive medical effects related to detoxification, immune response, and the general health status, and proposes some comprehensive, scientifically-based hypotheses on possible biological mechanisms underlying the observed effects on the health and body homeostasis.
Applications of zeolites in biotechnology and medicine - a review.
TLDR
Zeolites are promising for environment protection, detoxication of animal and human organisms, improvement of the nutrition status and immunity of farm animals, separation of various biomolecules and cells, construction of biosensors and detection of biomarkers of various diseases, controlled drug and gene delivery, radical scavenging, and particularly tissue engineering and biomaterial coating.
Assessing the protective effect of bentonite against lead toxicity in growing lambs
TLDR
The results showed that the dietary supplementation of bentonite could protect lambs against lead toxicity and the hematological parameters were not affected by any of the treatments.
Zeolite Clinoptilolite: Therapeutic Virtues of an Ancient Mineral
TLDR
The main aim of this review is to shed light on the geochemical aspects and therapeutic potentials of ZC with a vision of endorsing further preclinical and clinical research on zeolites as a potential agent for promoting human brain health and overall well-being.

Bone Density and Tissue Lead Accretion in Growing Rats Fed Low High Calcium With or Without Supplemental Clinoptilolite
TLDR
The objective of this experiment was to test the hypothesis that dietary clinoptilolite and calcium levels affect the growth, tissue uptake and bone morphology of growing rats fed diets containing toxic levels of lead.

TLDR
The potential of natural clinoptilolite from Gördes mines (West Anatolia, Turkey) for the uptake of lead, nickel, copper, copper(II), and zinc(II) from their single and mixed ion solutions was evaluated using the batch method.
Trapping the lead ion in multi-components aqueous solution by natural clinoptilolite.
Effects of high-sulfur water and clinoptilolite on health and growth performance of steers fed forage-based diets.
TLDR
It is suggested that clinoptilolite does not negate the effects of high-S water, and administration of high -S water decreases herd health through an increased incidence of sPEM and reduced nutritional status.
