Minerals – facts
1. Minerals are essential to all life. All minerals in the body work together as a collective whole. If there is a shortage of just any one mineral the balance of the entire bodily activity can be thrown awry.
A deficiency of one mineral may disrupt the entire chain of life, rendering other nutrients either useless or inefficient. A marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. It makes it impossible for the body to maintain its immune status adequately.
2. The human body is designed to receive minerals from plants so that they may be properly assimilated and utilised.
Colloidal minerals are plant derived and naturally chelated. The term ‘Colloidal’ means ‘in suspension’.
Colloidal minerals contain all major and trace elements (do not confuse ‘Colloidal
minerals’ with ‘Colloidal Silver’, it is not the same thing!!)
The efficiency of each mineral is enhanced by balanced amounts of the
3. The body must maintain an adequate mineral supply to maintain a balance between internal and external pressures of the body cells, called osmotic equilibrium. This state must be maintained for normal cell function and overall good health.
4. Minerals are conductors of the body’s electrical current, which is vital for all body functions.
5. All body processes depend on the action of minerals as all nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, sugars and oils etc, require minerals for activity.
6. Trace or colloidal minerals are more important in nutrition than
vitamins. Vitamins can be synthesised by living matter, minerals cannot.
7. Vitamins are required for every biochemical activity of the body.
Vitamins cannot function unless minerals are present.
8. Mineral are the catalysts that make enzyme function possible.
9. Minerals are necessary for the proper digestion and assimilation of our
10. Hormonal secretions of glands are dependant upon mineral stimulation.
11. Minerals control the acid-alkaline balance (PH) of the tissue fluid.
12. Minerals help protect the body from pollution by heavy (toxic)
metals and other contaminates. They have a natural chelating effect
which helps remove build-ups of metallic minerals.
13. The concept brought forth by French scientists concerning the biological
transmutation of the elements within the body makes it understandable as to why
the body needs the broad range of colloidal minerals in balance to regain and
maintain good health.
14. Minerals are therefore justified as a supplemental dietary substance,
especially in these days when the mineral content of our fruit and vegetables are destroyed by petrochemicals and synthetic fertilisers.
