Zeolite (Clinoptilolite) is a specially selected mineral for use in water filtration.  It has the capability to remove high levels of ammonium, plus removing heavy metals found in some water supplies. 

Ammonia (NH3) and heavy metal cations are often found in water sources and pose serious health and environmental risks. Studies have determined that natural clinoptilolite zeolite is selective for these cations, meaning that it will absorb and bind them in its honeycomb structure even in the presence of larger amounts of competing cations. In addition, zeolite forms strong bonds with ammonia and heavy metals that are difficult to break. This prevents leaching of contaminants into the environment.

Other benefits include the following:

High internal and external surface area which results in a high ion holding capacity
Selective for heavy metal cations including zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), silver (Ag), lead (Pb), cobalt (Co) and nickel (Ni)
Outperforms conventional granular media
Highly effective at filtering and purifying water
Removes organic matter
Requires 50% less backwash cycles than sand
Reduces the amount of backwash water due to a decreased number of backwash cycles
Classified as GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) for humans and animals
Non-toxic and environmentally friendly
Does not contain chemical additives or dyes
