MINERALS HAVE TO BE IN THE SOIL. PLANTS, ANIMALS AND HUMANS CAN'T MAKE IT. THEY HAVE TO INGEST IT FROM THE PLANT LIFE THAT IS GROWN IN MINERAL, RICH SOILS.
MINERAL-DEFICIENT SOIL AND CROPS
When dinosaurs ruled the earth 75 million years ago, they were likely living in an environment abundant with life-supporting minerals, which were absorbed through the root systems of plants to become part of a vibrant, life-sustaining food supply.
Over time, erosion and unwise farming methods have depleted our topsoil of its precious mineral content. Ironically, modern technology has only exacerbated this problem. Compared to 50 years ago today's farmers are able to produce double or even triple the yields of most major fruits, vegetables, and grains. But the nutrient content of the crops is lower than ever before.
Plants absorb metallic minerals from soil then convert them into colloids. Colloids are tiny particles that retain their identity even while suspended in liquid making them highly bioavailable, or absorbable.
Extracted from humid shale a layer of earth formed from ancient, mineral-laden plants. As a mineral source, humid shale is superior to other sources commonly used in supplements such as bentonite (ground up clay) or dried sea beds (ground up rocks).
Enhanced bioavailability and detoxification as in plants, plant derived minerals have a natural negative electrical charge. This has two very important benefits: First, it many enhance the transport and bioavailability of other nutrients. Secondly, it may support the body's natural detoxification of toxins sand heavy metals.
Pure and natural, the minerals are extracted from humid shale using pure, cool, clear water to the desired concentration; and then processed through a complex array of special filters, leaving only the organic colloidal minerals in the final solution. No preservatives, flavoring, or synthetic substances are added.
DIFFERENCE FORMS OF MINERALS
These minerals are similar to the kind found in rocks and soils and are only 8% to 12% absorbable. They can build to dangerous levels, accumulating in fat, liver and brain tissue. Most tablet-form minerals such as Centrum, Theragram and One-A-Day are of this type. A metallic mineral is not organic in nature. Consequently, the body has a very difficult time absorbing it, and eliminating what it can't absorb.
These are metallic minerals which have been bound to a carrying agent (usually an amino acid or enzyme) which assists in the absorption of the mineral in the small intestine. This method, patented in the 1970's, makes metallic minerals much more absorbable (35 to 45%) and much less potentially toxic to the body.
Organic Colloidal Minerals
These minerals have been processed through a plant and have undergone a biochemical transformation which makes them extremely absorbable (90% to 98%) and non toxic. Specifically, when a mineral is drawn from the soil into a plant via its roots, the process alters the mineral's bio-electric charge, changing it from positive to negative. Because the linings of our intestines carry an overall positive charge a natural magnetic gradient is created across which the mineral is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Metallic minerals, on the other hand, do not undergo this biochemical transformation and therefore remain positively charged. A positively charged metallic mineral can cause problems for the body. The body is designed to recognize and use minerals in a organic colloidal form and will automatically rid itself of any excess. By contrast, the body has more difficulty recognizing positively charged minerals. As a consequence they tend to accumulate in the body to sometimes dangerous levels. This is why metallic arsenic, for example, has been found to be 65 times more toxic than is organically bound arsenic.
Don't be fooled into buying mineral supplements that simply claim to be "colloidal." The term "colloidal" refers only to the very small particle size of the minerals used in these products. A far more important determinant of both the absorbability and safety of a mineral is whether or not the mineral is "organic" (i.e., derived from plant sources). Organic colloidal minerals are up to 20 times more absorbable and non-toxic when compared to inorganic colloidal minerals. It is a sad fact of the marketplace that many of the products being marketed as colloidal minerals are, in fact, inorganic colloidal minerals!
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
Teeny weeny blood vessels feeding into the kidneys get clogged causing the kidney to secrete the renin enzymes which causes the blood pressure to rise. The kidneys release a chemical that raises your blood pressure to push the blood through the vessels.
IMMUNE DEFICIENCY DISEASES
According to Dr. Glidden, people with auto-immune disease have anti-bodies that healthy people do not have. Therefore, it is the anti-bodies that causes the disease, even though it is not always presents. Chronic inflammation and malnutrition leads to consistent destruction of healthy tissue on a microscope level. If your tissues are dying for weeks, months, or even years, your body will make anti-bodies against your dying tissues to clean it up. Your immune system is weak and it needs essential nutrients.
