Zeolife incorporated into the animal’s diet can reduce the harmful effects of aflatoxin because it strongly absorbs aflatoxins and zearalenone and therefore reduces the need for antibiotics. Mineral adsorbents based on natural Zeolite and bentonite can be used in animal diets in order to prevent poisoning caused by mycotoxins. Zeolife incorporated into the animal’s diet at 1% to 2% was evaluated for the ability to reduce the harmful effects of 2.5 mg total aflatoxin on broiler chickens.
Zeolife efficiently removes following toxins and heavy metals:
- Mycotoxins (ochratoxin and aflatoxin B1)
- Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (benz-o-pyrene)
- Heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminium, Arsenic bismuth, antimony, barium, depleted uranium, ammonia and many others
As enhanced adsorber Zeolife also acts as adsorber of:
- Bacteria (and bacterial toxins)
- Viral particles
Zeolife also works as radio protection and helps to eliminate radiation poisoning.
Previous tests show that after the dietary administration with 2.5, 5.0 and 10% Zeolife, the elimination of Cesium 137 increased and the radionuclide deposition in liver, kidneys and muscles decreased. The Zeolife decontamination effects were observed with the preventive administration, as well as with sorbent administration from 24 h after a single contamination of brown rats.
