What Is Zeolite?

Zeolites are microporous crystalline aluminosilicates derived from the reaction of volcanic rocks, ash layers and alkaline groundwater. The Atlas of Zeolite Framework Types currently recognizes about 218 different Zeolite structures, of which 40 natural zeolites are known. Natural zeolites are listed by the USA Food and Drug Administration for human consumption (FDA GRAS Listings, 2006) and considered as non-toxic by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC, 1997). Moreover, Codex Alimentarius Commission (1999) lists some zeolites as a granted substance in Organic Food Production and Plant Protection.

Most of us are familiar with the zeolites used in water softener systems. The zeolite core of the water softener absorbs large amounts of metals like calcium and magnesium from the water. Periodically, the zeolite in your water softener is flushed with highly concentrated salt water to flush out the metal ions and regenerate the zeolite for more absorption. The most common forms of zeolites used in water softeners are the natural aluminosilicates, gluconites (i.e. greensand), and synthetic permutite.

What Is The Difference Between Lab-Made Zeolite And Mined Zeolite?

Lab Grown zeolite is made in the laboratory under controlled conditions and with controlled composition.  Mined zeolite is extracted from the earth in its natural form and is usually processed to remove attached impurities.  Lab Grown zeolite can only contain the elements that are put in as part of the controlled process.  Mined zeolite may contain trace amounts of many different kinds of elements. Of the 245 unique zeolite frameworks that have been identified by the International Zeolite Association Structure Commission, over 40 are naturally occurring.

Naturally occurring zeolites are rarely pure and are contaminated to varying degrees by other minerals, metals, quartz, or other zeolites. Some of these impurities are simply adsorbed inside the zeolite’s pores, while others are an integral part of the structure. Acid treatments at high temperatures can remove many of these impurities, but as more structural atoms are extracted, the integrity of the zeolite framework becomes compromised, and the important toxin-binding cages begin to collapse. At this point, the zeolite becomes increasingly less effective as regions inside the structure become blocked. In other words, increasing purity is balanced by decreasing function, and it is difficult to completely purify a naturally occurring zeolite from all its impurities and still retain full potency.

There are no such things as “different-sized zeolite molecules”. The zeolite in Advanced TRS is not a molecule of zeolite, it is a cluster of multiple zeolite cages that together forms an object that is only nanometers large. It is not possible to create a structural formula for a specific particle size, instead structural formulas are created on the basis of the zeolite’s unit cell, the minimum size repeating unit. This formula is the same regardless of particle size.

A representation is given by (Na2, K2, Ca)3Al6Si30O72·24H2O. The crystal structure of clinoptilolite has large 12-ring pores, the effective pore size of the zeolite excludes molecules larger than ~0.9 nm. Because of its wide use in agriculture and industry Clinoptilolite has been named the mineral of the 21st century by The International Mineralogical Association. Clinoptilolite has been used with success in animal feed at less than 2% by weight and for the purpose of an anti-caking flow agent.

To produce pure, synthetic clinoptilolite, silica, alumina, and alkali sources with initial Si/Al ratio from 3.0 to 5.0 are heated in an autoclave for 1–10 days at a temperature range from 120 to 195 °C. The Clinoptilolite begins to assemble in tiny crystals, whose crystallization rate and crystallinity is controlled by seeding and manipulation of the reaction conditions. Instead of direct heat, microwave, ultrasound and high pressure may be used.

What Is Clinoptilolite?

Clinoptilolite is a naturally occurring hydrated alkali aluminosilicate that is one of the most abundant minerals in the zeolite family. Its structure consists of an outer framework of silica and alumina tetrahedra, within which clusters of water molecules and exchangeable cations (e.g., calcium, potassium, sodium) migrate freely, while larger metals preferentially gather inside.

What Is Advanced TRS?

AdvancedTRS contains nano-clinoptilolite, which is a smaller version of micronized clinoptilolite, with stable chemical and physical characteristics.  Its main advantage comes from its tremendously higher pore accessibility and ability to penetrate more effectively to wherever toxins are found. Clinical studies reported to date do not dispute that nano-clinoptilolite is a safe and effective product. Clinoptilolite itself has been shown to:

  • Bind heavy metals and over 80,000 toxins
  • Adjust the balance of vital nutrients like iron & calcium
  • Support intestinal microflora and pH
  • Promote healthy immune function

AdvancedTRS is a REFINED formula utilizing nanotechnology to enhance the body’s natural detoxification efforts at the cellular level.

What Is A Nano-Sized Particle?

The classic definition is that a particle is considered to be nano-size when it is less than 100 nanometers in size. This definition is a non-limiting functional definition that arose when scientists discovered unique properties in certain materials with nanometer-sized dimensions.

What Is The Size Of The Zeolite Particles In Advanced TRS?

The particle sizes in AdvancedTRS are between 10 and 250 nanometers, with the most common size somewhere in-between those two values..  The active site, or pore size is approximately 0.9 nanometers.

How Does Advanced TRS Help The Body To Remove Heavy Metals And Toxin?

The strong attraction of zeolites for toxins is the result of the way the elements oxygen, silicon, aluminum, and alkali metals (e.g. lithium, sodium, potassium) are arranged inside the material. The Silicon-Oxygen and Aluminum-Oxygen bonds that create the nanometers-sized hollow cages inside the zeolite are bulky and rigid. The strong bonds between these elements leave the interior space within the cage with a negative electrical charge, and elements and molecular fragments with positive charge are strongly adhered, sometimes by multiple connections, making it very difficult for the captured species to escape. Zeolites, like that in Advanced TRS, have the capability of absorbing any metal found in a positively charged state. The actual amounts will depend on which element, if it is a combination of elements, and the form of these elements (i.e. if they are dissolved or part of larger metallo-organic complexes.).

Noble metals like gold and platinum are usually neutral and would have little affinity to advanced TRS.

Positive charge means that an object is not electrically neutral but has fewer balancing negative charges than positive charges.

The concept of charge comes from everyday observation of static cling in the laundry. The reason why you get static cling, is that the two objects, you and your laundry item, oppositely match each other electrically so that  when they come together they are electrically neutralized and stick. At the microscopic level, it means one has more electrons than it needs and the other does not have enough. When the two things come together the extra electrons from one can be donated to the other object. Sometimes the electrons can’t really leave their parent object so the two objects “cling” together. When you get an electrical shock on touching something, it means the extra electrons from one object have jumped across the air, into the other object, bringing the two items together. That creates a “spark” and you might feel a pain or pinch at the point closest to contact.

How Is Advanced TRS Different From Other Forms Of Liquid Zeolite Available On The Market?

AdvancedTRS is different in many ways: Through Coseva’s proprietary processes, the zeolite particle is nano-sized and stabilized in water which allows it to be easily assimilated. Additionally, AdvancedTRS is the purest form of clinoptilolite available because it is Lab Grown in a clean laboratory facility, using state of the art technology and science.The Lab Grown zeolite in AdvancedTRS is an improvement on nature since its synthesis occurs from only well-characterized precursors, in a clean, sterile environment.

How Long Does Advanced TRS Stay In The Body?

It depends on the individual, as each person’s digestive system works a little differently. In the 1980’s, Mayo Clinic researchers measured digestion time in 21 healthy people. Total transit time, from eating to elimination in stool, averaged 53 hours. The average transit time through just the large intestine (colon) was 40 hours, with significant difference between men and women: 33 hours for men, 47 hours for women.

Taking AdvancedTRS every day will result in a steady state level of zeolite in your digestive tract. Once you stop taking AdvancedTRS it takes a couple days for Advanced TRS to fully clear out.

Metcalf AM, et al. Simplified assessment of segmental colonic transit. Gastroenterology. 1987; 92:40.

Where Does Advanced TRS Go In The Body?

Because the zeolite molecule in Advanced TRS is surrounded by layers of water, it can travel in the body wherever water goes.

What Ingredients Are In Advanced TRS?

Laboratory-made clinoptilolite zeolite and ultra-purified water.

Is The Purified Water In Advanced TRS Processed With Activated Charcoal Or Coconut Husks?

No, it’s filtered with standard polypropylene pharmaceutical grade filters then through a reverse osmosis filter to produce 18 megohm water.

Will Advanced TRS Affect A Pacemaker, Artificial Joint, Dental Work, Mercury Fillings, Or Any Surgical Implant?

Advanced TRS will not leach metals from a fully processed medical implant or device. They will not be attracted to or removed by the zeolite.

Will AdvancedTRS Interfere With The Effectiveness Of A Copper Non-Hormonal IUD?

No. Copper IUDs work as a physical barrier to conception, and AdvancedTRS has no impact on this function.

Will AdvancedTRS Remove The Zinc, Iodine And Silver Supplements I Take?

Iodine is negatively charged and will not bind to AdvancedTRS clinoptilolite – which is negatively charged.  Zinc and silver – being positively charged – may have some affinity for the zeolite.

Coseva recommends that micronutrient minerals be taken at least 4 hours before or after the TRS. Once in the body, minerals which are essential for health, are very quickly bonded to other substances which neutralize any ionic charge and therefore preserve them for use by the body. Pollutants, like heavy metals which are not useful for health, are not protected by the body and can therefore be picked up by the zeolite. The 4 hour dose interval is to allow the body to protect what it needs.

Iodine, which is not a metal, will be used by the body and the zinc will also be protected by the body. The silver (elemental), as a noble metal, has no charge to attract the zeolite.

Will Advanced TRS Be Adversely Affected By An X-Ray?

As x-rays are an ionizing radiation and not a particle/molecule, the x-ray will not have a negative effect on the zeolite in Advanced TRS.

Are There Clinical Studies That Confirm Capture Of Metals From Tissues?

Yes. Clinoptilolite’s ability to capture toxins is well documented on and Some of these studies are referenced in our white paper, but there are so many that it is by no means a comprehensive list.

Is Advanced TRS Safe?

Manufactured clinoptilolite zeolite has been recognized by the FDA as safe, having been granted GRAS status.

Is Advanced TRS Safe For Children?

We have seen no evidence that Advanced TRS is not safe for children. Always consult with your physician before taking any supplements including Advanced TRS. As a rule of thumb, the usage rate is based on a person who weighs 150 pounds. Therefore, 150 pounds divided by 5 sprays is equal to 30 pounds per spray.

Is Advanced TRS Safe To Take During Breast Feeding And/Or Pregnancy?

We have seen no evidence that Advanced TRS is not safe for women who want to become pregnant, are pregnant, or have recently been pregnant. Advanced TRS is not fat soluble. Always consult with your physician before taking any supplements including Advanced TRS.  

Can Advanced TRS Be Taken The Day Of Vaccination?

There is no evidence that Advanced TRS will interfere with the effectiveness of the vaccination.

Can You Use Advanced TRS To Detox Animals?

Yes, and studies have shown manufactured clinoptilolite to be a safe method for detoxing animals.

At What Temperature Should I Store Advanced TRS?

Ideally, Advanced TRS should be kept at room temperature of 10-27C. Freezing or thawing will not alter the solution. Warm temperatures below the boiling point will not alter the solution.

Does Advanced TRS Have An Expiration?

The zeolite in Advanced TRS can remain stable for up to 5 years as long as storage and handling instructions are followed.

What Heavy Metals And Toxins Can Advanced TRS Remove From The Body?

Advanced TRS is engineered to bind to any element or small molecule that has a positive ionic charge, such as mercury, lead, nickel, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic, ammonia etc.

How Do I Know If Advanced TRS Will Remove Certain Toxins?

Advanced TRS removes elements with a positive ionic charge. If a toxin has a positive ionic charge, it can be removed. If it does not have a positive ionic charge, it will not be removed.

Will Advanced TRS Remove Radiation And/Or Radioactive Elements?

Advanced TRS will only remove a physical particle that is positively charged. It will not remove radiation such as x-rays because the x-ray exists only transiently in your tissues during the procedure. However, ATRS may remove some of the acidic byproducts created by such energies.

Does Advanced TRS Target Certain Heavy Metal Toxins Over Others?

Clinoptilolite has different binding strength for different positively charged toxin, with stronger affinity for larger, electron-rich metals like mercury and lead, for example.

Does Advanced TRS Remove Essential Nutrients From The Body?

Essential minerals are converted to a neutral salt form for use by our bodies. The zeolite is not attracted to the lesser ionic charges that these nutrients possess. Toxins, however, are not used in the body and thus are not converted to salts, and Advanced TRS can bind to them.

Does Advanced TRS Chelate Metals Found Inside The Cell? Or Is It Just Metals Found In The Blood?

Your body seeks balance. Advanced TRS will rebalance toxins located both the blood, lymph system and tissues, but first removing accessible ionized forms. Once they are removed, trapped materials will be naturally released from the cells in your body, and be further removed.

Will Advanced TRS Remove Fluoride?

Fluoride is negatively charged and therefore will not be removed from the body by Advanced TRS.

What is fulvic acid?

Fulvic acids are a family of naturally-occuring organic acids, natural compounds, and components of humus (which is a fraction of soil organic matter). Fulvic acid is created under the influence of trillions of useful microbes, working on the decay of plant matter in a soil environment. Fulvic acids cannot be readily synthesized in the laboratory because of their extremely complex nature.

What is humic acid?

Humic acids are another family of naturally-occuring organic acids, natural compounds, and components of humus, also produced by useful microbes in soil. Humic acids also cannot be readily synthesized in the laboratory because of their extremely complex nature.

What are the ingredients in Advanced Fulvic?

Advanced Fulvic/Humic contains over 70 naturally occurring fulvic and humic acids, minerals, trace elements, trace amino acids, and antioxidants disperse in purified water.

Does Advanced Fulvic Support Detoxification?

Fulvic and humic acids have a unique ability to chelate molecules rendering them harmless. Fulvic and humic acid complexes are then removed from the body through the digestive system and urinary tract.

How does Advanced Fulvic support the absorption of minerals?

Fulvic and Humic acids are also capable of delivering essential trace nutrients to the body and into cells. Because they are naturally complexed with essential trace nutrients, fulvic and humic acids can act as a transporter of these nutrients. Much like other detox products they can exchange weaker bound trace nutrients for tighter bound toxic material that can be subsequently transported away.

Does Fulvic Acid control or eliminate Free Radicals?

Free radicals constantly bombard us in our toxic environment from things like polluted air, poor eating choices, and other toxins. Free radicals cause progressive damage resulting in the functional decline that defines aging. In addition, free radicals also occur naturally as part of our cell metabolism that creates waste within the cell. The presence of antioxidants helps neutralize free radicals and remove them from the cells. When systems are in balance, the production and management of free radicals proceed as nature intended. The only way to counteract the effects of free radicals on cells is by eating foods rich in antioxidants or supplementing our diets with antioxidant products such as Fulvic/Humic Acid.

What makes Coseva Advanced Fulvic/Humic acid better than the competition?

  • Advanced Fulvic/Humic is formulated to maximize effectiveness, potency, and range of benefits. Our formula contains both free form fulvic and humic acids as well as chelated forms with over 70 trace micronutrients in the formula. The two forms complement each other.
  • The fulvic and humic acids in Advanced Fulvic/Humic are concentrated via advanced residual-free extraction methods that preserve the micronutrient balance found naturally.
  • Advanced Fulvic/Humic is produced using stringent process controls for product consistency, safety, and purity. In addition, each production batch is third-party tested.
  • Like all of our products, Advanced Fulvic/Humic is backed by the Coseva Purity Promise and a money-back guarantee.

How do you know you have both free-form and fulvate forms of fulvic acid in your products?

Advanced Fulvic/Humic contains both the free-form and the chelated-form (fulvates and humates) bound to minerals.  This is tested using a standardized method in a 3rd party laboratory prior to product manufacture. The gold standard is the Lamar Method. The LAMAR method established an accurate and reliable way to quantify HA and FA in raw ores and products. The insoluble material is removed from the alkaline dissolved HA and FA material resulting in the accurate quantification of fulvic and humic acid. Some testing methods, such as Colorimetric, lump other naturally occurring constituents into the fulvic acid reading (like carbohydrates), resulting in a high but very misleading fulvic acid quantity. Both forms (fulvic and fulvate, humic and humate) are biologically available for the chelation and subsequent transport of other nutrients, such as the organic, amino acids, and flavonoids in our formula, as well as those nutrients obtained from our diet. In layman terms, proportionally, Advanced Fulvic/Humic has more fulvic acid than what is attached to minerals. This is tremendously beneficial to the body.

How much should I take?

Suggested Use: Take once daily by mixing 1mL with 16 ounces of non-chlorinated water or your favorite beverage.

Can anyone take Advanced Fulvic?

Everyone should be cautioned to consult their physician if they have any illness before beginning any supplement. A physician’s consult is mandated for all children and pregnant or nursing mothers.

Can Advanced Fulvic be taken with medicine and food?

Normally, pharmaceuticals should be taken by themselves rather than with supplements. This is to avoid the possibility of interference with the delivery of the medicine. However, there are medicines which can be taken with food and, if that is the indication on the prescription, then the Advanced Fulvic could be taken with the meal as well since we are not concerned about losing the efficacy of the supplement by taking it with food. In fact, its uptake, in the portion which passes through the GI tract, may be enhanced by taking it with food. 

TRS, on the other hand should be taken alone, neither with food nor with other supplements. An interval of 4 hours is adequate.

What's the difference between fulvic acid from lignite, Leonardite, or brown coal?

Companies that source their fulvic acid from a by-product of coal, such as lignite, Leonardite, or brown coal, capitalize on the benefits known about fulvic without providing a quality source of fulvic acid and fulvic trace minerals. For example, a Leonardite or lignite product is very low in trace minerals and fulvic acid, as demonstrated by an elemental lab analysis and the standardized fulvic quantification method known as the LAMAR method.

What is the source, organic or inorganic?

The source of fulvic and humic acids found in Advanced Fulvic/Humic is organic because it is straight from the earth, a complex of microbially processed ancient marine life and ancient fresh water and plant life. By definition, this material is organic and is handled using methods compatible with the Organic designation.

What is the source of our fulvic acid and trace minerals?

We source our trace minerals and fulvic acid from a prehistoric compost deposit in the United States of America.

Has Advanced Fulvic been irradiated?

Our Quality Assurance policies strictly forbid irradiation of our products. Therefore, our products are not exposed to radiation of any kind.

What is the Uranium level in Advanced Fulvic?

Our third-party lab testing shows an undetectable amount of uranium in our products.

Does humate contain heavy metals – Arsenic, Aluminum, Cadmium, Lead, and Mercury?

These heavy metals are present throughout our environment in trace quantities, including in fruits, vegetables, grains, and the worldwide food supply. The problem occurs when a person’s daily intake exceeds that of the safe levels over an extended time. Safe levels are set by scientific regulatory bodies like the EPA and FDA. If you eat food on this planet, you will ingest these heavy metals to some degree. There may be indications that some of these have a physical benefit in trace amounts, but more scientific research needs to be conducted. 

Advanced Fulvic/Humic contains trace elements at concentrations far below the regulatory upper limits for daily intake.

Are your products USDA Organic certified?

The USDA Organic certification qualifies a grown product such as crops and animals as organic in which the process by which that plant or animal is grown or raised follows stringent guidelines of non-toxic fertilizers, pest control, harvesting, and feed products. Since the source of fulvic and humic acids is ancient, and trace minerals are not grown or raised, the Department of Agriculture does not certify them in this category.
