Increase of milk production in cows up to 17%
Protection against olive fly, margaronia and leaf spot
Production increase up to 52%
Zeolite is a porous natural aluminosilicate mineral rock. Zeolites occur as geological reserves around the world, especially in rocks tha partially or in their entirety have volcanic origins. This explains the frequent presence in geographical areas with volcanic activity. They derive from the hydrothermal alteration of various aluminosilicate minerals such as feldspar and feldspathoid covering mostly small cavities, cracks and joints basaltic lavas and less commonly granites and gneisses.
Because of its molecular structure it shows a remarkably high ion exchange capacity (100 to 400 meq / 100g) and regulates the PH of water and soil to neutral. It acts as a molecular sieve which binds to heavy metals, toxins, free radicals, while it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature. Furthermore it has the ability to absorb water and other nutritive substances for living organisms, which then releases in a particular rate depending on the environmental conditions. Because of this ability could be likened to a “sponge stone”.
Our company handles the application and purchase of certified natural zeolite of European origin. The content of clinoptilolite is at least 85% and is available in various grain sizes depending on its use. Our aim is to spread the countless applications of this “magic rock” resulting in direct benefit of its properties in areas such as agriculture, livestock, environment and public health. We ship worldwide in wholesale and retail prices.
Zeolite is like us, so it cleans the soil of the elements who disturb, to help the development of life without barriers, because it is a mission that is a target and it can not be stopped, because water touches everything, the sea, to strengthen the infinite blue for the next world to be created.

Natural zeolite in agriculture
Due to its unique properties, natural zeolite has many important applications in many areas such as agriculture, livestock, fisheries, public health, construction, hydrocarbons industry, protection against nuclear radiation and many others. Specifically, in agriculture, natural zeolite may be incorporated in the soil in the form of gravel and sprayed on the above ground part of the plant or the tree in a form of a very fine powder admixed in water, depending on the type of crop.
Zeolite as an excellent environmental manager helps to increase production to crops and maximize the quality of agricultural production. The following table lists some of these species and the influence of natural zeolite to production increase.
Table of increase of production after the use of natural zeolite
Corn - Gefyra Thessaloniki
Wheat - Gefyra Thessaloniki
Corn - Halastra Thessaloniki
Organic tomato - Aspro Edessa
Grape - Agios Athanasios Thessaloniki
Kiwi - Leivadochori Serres
Cotton - Nea Orestiada
Carnation - Sidirokastro Serres
Natural zeolite is used in greenhouses throughout Greece and especially in the area of Nea Orestiada with spectacular results. Due to its properties it saves water and fertilizers and helps the plants grow more quickly and healthier avoiding the use of heavy pesticides.
As a natural substance that is unchanged and present in the earth, it may be applied to an organic cultivation keeping its characterization and providing a cleaner soil. It also stimulates larger products with authentic flavor, aroma and color.
The geographical distribution of natural zeolite reserves in Greek area is mainly located in regions of Thrace. These are mainly deposits formed by the transformation of pyroclastic rocks in open hydrological systems. The presence of clinoptilolite is especially common in the area of Northern Thrace namely that of Northern Evros (Petrota).
Natural zeolite in livestock
Zeolite can be added to animal feed in powder form in 2% rate on their feed rations. It cleanses the digestive system of heavy metals, free radicals and toxins. Using 2-3 kilos of zeolite per square meter on the floor of the stall or other premises with animals, decreases greatly the after odor absorbing and neutralizing ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.
In the wider region of Petrota of Nea Orestiada, wherein the zeolite is abundant, many stables and other buildings have as construction material natural zeolite. Because of its antifungal properties also protects the udders of the animals from diseases, improving the quality and increasing the quantity of produced milk. Due to the absorption of ammonia and other harmful substances, the odorless manure can then be used as fertilizer.
Table of results after the use of natural zeolite in livestock
Increase of milk production in cows
Poultry - increasing the nitrogen in the manure
Poultry - reducing the loss of ammonia
Poultry - increasing the egg production and weight
Also the use of natural zeolite in breeding goats at 2.5% in their diet resulted in weight gain, birth to triplets and quadruplets deliveries and significant increase in the fat content in their milk.

No. Since zeolite binds with certain substances such as heavy metals from the soil, it inactivates them, not allowing them to interact with the environment. So the persistence in the soil does not harm its functioning and is continuing in the same way. The exception of course are substances that emit radiation such as radioactive materials susceptible to special treatment.
Natural Zeolite has been also detected in other countries outside Greece, for example:
Austria, Bulgaria, USA, Japan, Jordan, Italy, China, Cuba, Romania, Slovakia and Turkey.
There are certified formulations of natural zeolite for human use. Each formulation is accompanied by instructions. The dosage ranges from 1 to 5 gr a day. It is also possible to use natural zeolite in cosmetics, such as creams and face masks. You can buy such type of products from our shop.READ MORE
