Minerals Necessary For Minerals Absorptions

Lack of Minerals & Trace Elements, Our Body Cannot Absorb Vitamins and Enzymes!

We need Minerals and Trace Element in GOOD BALANCE and Proportion in order to ABSORB the right amount and proportion Vitamins and Enzymes.


Extracted from Senate Document No 264, United States 2nd congress, 1986.

“We know that vitamins are complex chemical substance which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is of some special structure of the body. Disorder and disease can result from any Vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized that minerals control the body’s appropriation of vitamin. And in the absence of essential minerals, Vitamins cannot function. Having all the Vitamins, but lacking minerals, Vitamins are useless.

IMPORTANCE OF PLANT DERIVED COLLOIDAL MINERALS
(Plant Derived Minerals = Plant Derived Colloidal Minerals)

  1. We are all made up of minerals. Certain religious references refer to us as being derived from mud or dust. Is this the reference to the minerals that we are all made of?
  2. Apart from water (which is hydrogen and oxygen), Carbon, nitrogen and sulphur, they are all minerals.
  3. Life would not be possible without minerals. It would be unpleasant with too little minerals.
  4. We are constantly using (and thus losing) minerals. In order to stay healthy and remain in peak condition, we need to take in at least as much minerals as we lose.
  5. When mineral levels fall, aging and disease set in. In a large study involving autopsies of many different species, every subject (both animal and human) that died of natural causes, died of a nutritional deficiency!
  6. You cannot absorb minerals in the metallic states - the state in that they exist in nature (rocks, limestone, dolomite, crushed egg shells). No matter how hungry or starved you are, you cannot derive nutrition form the soil.
  7. When minerals are made ionic (i.e. in solution), you can absorb them with 3-8% availability.
  8. When they are chelated (an amino acid is wrapped round the mineral), absorption of the mineral goes up to 40%. The body is "tricked" into absorbing the mineral disguised as an amino acid.
  9. As we get older, we gradually lose the ability to absorb minerals. After the age of 50, we absorb less than 1% of minerals.
  10. Our body absorbs, transports, utilises and stores minerals in colloidal form.
  11. Colloidal minerals have 100% absorption to all living tissue.
  12. Colloidal minerals are the smallest state in which the mineral can keep its identity. They are hundreds of times smaller than metallic minerals and only 1/1700th the size of a red blood cell.
  13. They carry a negative charge.
  14. They remain in suspension (all the negative charges repel each other to stay in suspension).
  15. Only plants can "digest" and make them "colloidal" - hence the term "plant derived colloidal minerals".
  16. Animals and humans must get the minerals that are in the soil via plants. That is why you cannot get the iron from a nail. However, iron from spinach can help your anaemia.
  17. However, the plants need to absorb the raw minerals from the soil.
  18. Our soils are depleted due to extensive and repeated faming practices. This is due to erosion and acid rain on the top soil.
  19. Minerals are not evenly distributed around the world. They are concentrated in certain areas much like veins of chocolate on a chocolate ripple ice cream.
  20. At least 70 of the 106 known minerals are needed (sometimes only in trace amounts) for you to achieve your genetic potential for health and longevity.
