There are so many different mineral products on
the market. Are they all basically the same?
No. Not all minerals are created equal. Many companies are producing minerals
that are not from organic sources, making them potentially toxic. Metallic minerals
tend to be stored in the fat cells and build up over time making it difficult
If humans were able to utilize inorganic compounds from the soil we could
all just eat dirt and get everything from the soil, the important thing to note
is that the plants have absorbed the minerals and chelated them by wrapping
them in a plant protein. This simple factor has moved them up a notch on the
food chain and puts them in a form that the human body can now deal with, without
the toxic effects of inorganic minerals.
Iodine in it's metallic state is a ly poison. One grain of metallic iodine
would drop the largest man like a clap of lightning. Yet this mineral has been
long known to have wide spread nutritional benefits, so much so that most salt
comes to you "iodized".
Other products contain additives such as sugars, honey, powdered minerals,
flavors and others. Still other formulas have added inorganic minerals in an
attempt to show an increased potency. Since potency is not the important factor
in trace mineral s the adding of inorganic source minerals not only is unimportant
it detracts from the bio-electrical activity of the trace elements, and makes
them potentially toxic. Your best bet is to stick with the unaltered time tested
formula like mineral Toddy.
