      Minerals and Human Health

The Rationale for Optimal and Balanced Trace Element Levels

by Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D.

Excerpts from: Freedom of the Spiritual Warrior from Human Domestication:   

 

Introduction

There are 92 elements found in nature, and an additional 22 theoretical and/or observed elements. In addition, there are hundreds of isotopes of the elements, any one of which may play an as yet undiscovered role in human health. In table 1 below are listed the quantities of elements found in the earth's crust, oceans, and atmosphere. These are the elements our body must draw upon to survive. It becomes increasingly evident when studying the relationship of minerals to human health that keeping the level of minerals in balance in every tissue, fluid, cell and organ, in the human body may be the key to maintaining  human health.

Elements Found in the Earth's Crust, Ocean and Atmosphere

Earth's Crust (by mass)      Oceans (by mass)         Atmosphere (volume of dry air)

Oxygen       46.5%           Oxygen    85.79%         Nitrogen            78.08%

Silicon          28.0%           Hydrogen 10.67%         Oxygen             20.95%

Aluminum       8.1%           Chlorine    2.07%          Argon                 0.93%

Iron               5.1%           Sodium      1.14%         Carbon Dioxide     0.03%

Calcium          3.5%           Magnesium 0.14%         Neon                   0.0018%

Sodium           3.0%           All others    0.19%        Helium                 0.0005%

Potassium        2.5%                                             Krypton                0.0001%

Magnesium       2.2%                                             Hydrogen             0.00005%

Titanium           0.5%                                            Xenon                   0.000008%

Through geophysical forces, mixing of the earth's crust with water can provide virtually every mineral our body requires to maintain health. This explains why the noted nutritionists, Ruth L. Pike and Myrtle L. Brown stated in Nutrition: An Integrated Approach (John Wiley &Sons), 1984, p.197) that: "Water is compatible with more substances than any known solvent, and therefore it is an ideal medium for transporting nutrients in the cells and for the chemical reactions of cellular metabolism to take place."

It is interesting to note that the famous environmentalist, Racheal Carson, recognized the importance of protecting the ocean and these delicate inland seas. In the Sea Around Us, she wrote: ". . .Fish, amphibian, and reptile, warm-blooded bird and mammal - each of us carries in our veins a salty stream in which the elements are combined in almost the same proportions as in sea water. This is our inheritance from the day, untold millions of years ago, when a remote ancestor, having progressed from the one-celled to the many celled stage, first developed a circulatory system in which the fluid was merely the water of the sea. In the same way, our lime-hardened skeletons are a heritage from the calcium-rich ocean of Cambrian time. Even the protoplasm that streams within each cell of our bodies has the chemical structure impressed upon living matter when the first simple creatures were brought forth in the ancient sea. . ."

Summary of Research by Farley Anderson, B.S.

Let me introduce you to a concept that is so old that it is considered to be one of the original "Health Foods," so simple that it can be understood by everyone yet such a wonder that we are only beginning to unlock many of its secrets. I call this concept the Thesis of Body Mineral Balancing. Simply stated, I believe that when the earth was created it was given a perfect balance of minerals. That balance of the soluble minerals is found in the fluids of the earth or the seas. This is the same basic balance of minerals we find in the fluids of the human body. I believe that when we get away from this balance, degenerative disease will begin to set in. I also believe that basic to the rejuvenating of good health is the restoration of mineral balance.

A few interesting facts about sea water: 84 of the earth's basic elements have been identified in sea water, 44 are considered to be the most common soluble minerals. Man is unable to make sea water from scratch. All the seas of the earth contain basically the same balance of minerals including Utah's Great Salt Lake. Most of the minerals found in sea water are found in such small quantities that they are called Trace Minerals. In human nutrition some of these Trace Minerals are so important that they are labeled "Necessary for Life." Others can be found in the human body but science has no yet determined what if anything these minerals do. Parts per million does not mean almost nonexistent. For instance there is more gold in a ton of sea water than in a ton of good to average gold ore. The more our soils are tilled and exposes to weather the faster the soluble minerals are leached out and sent on their way to the sea. If the minerals are not available in the sol they will not be found in the plants.

The mineral content in plants can vary as much as 200% (1,000% in specific minerals).

Minerals & Trace Minerals- A Clarification of Definitions

Mineral: Naturally occurring inorganic elements having a characteristic crystalline structure and chemical composition. Minerals or macro-minerals are those minerals which the body requires more than 100 milligrams of per day for proper maintenance of health. Micro or trace minerals are those minerals which the body requires less than 100 milligrams of per day. Go to http://www.concentrace.co.za/index.htm to see Electro micrographs of some of the major minerals found in ConcenTrace®

Ionic: Of, containing or relating to an ion or ion. Some of the most essential minerals and trace minerals have shown a dependency upon being ionic in order to be absorbed in the intestinal lumen and/ or to be physiologically valid. Through digestive processes, some of which are dependent upon sufficient stomach acid, the body is able to break down some other forms of organic or inorganic bound minerals and trace minerals to their ionic form so they can absorbed. Minerals and trace minerals are capable of remaining in a free flowing non-bound ionic form in a balanced solution .

Ion: An atom or group of atoms than are inherently either positively or negatively charged due to either additional or missing electron(s). This charge causes the ions to interact, attracting or repelling each other in a search for another ion to join with or to give up an electron in order to make the charge neutral (Clayman, 605), (Dox, Melloni, Eisner, 227).

The fluids of the body are largely ionic solutions. The body uses the movement of ions through these fluids and across cell membranes as an integral part of many vital body processes. For example, ions regulate acid-base balance and water balance. Ions also serve essential roles in nerve conduction, muscle contraction, heart action, blood clotting, protein metabolism, bone and tooth formation, and enzyme activation. In fact, every body process is dependent on ions .

Electrolyte: A substance whose molecules split into individual ions when dissolved thus allowing it to conduct electrical energies (Clayman, 397).

Solution: A liquid made up of water and water soluble components.

Colloidal mineral: A suspension of tiny non-soluble mineral and trace mineral particles in water. Most colloidal minerals are held in suspension by their tiny size and/or a static electrical charge. Many colloidal minerals claim to be  organic due to the fact that they come from prehistoric mineral deposits such as humic shale and that some of the minerals are bound to carbon. Note: By this same definition, coal and many petroleum products are also organic.

Caution: Many colloidal trace mineral products, even though not represented on the label, have aluminum and phosphate as their two most prominent elements.

Chelate: A form of a mineral or trace mineral whereby it is bound, usually synthetically, to a carbon based or "organic" substance. Chelates can allow high concentrations of certain elements to be more readily broken down into ionic form and absorbed when compared to other minerals which are bound to other non-organic substances. Chelates, however, tend not to be naturally balanced.

Metallic: All metallic minerals are capable of also being in an ionic form and when in an ionic solution , are capable of conducting electricity through the solution. This is essential to human health. Metallic elements are also capable of being in several non-metallic forms.

1. All minerals and trace minerals that are not negatively charged (or anions) are inherently metallic . This does not, however, mean that they are either toxic or non-toxic. For example, magnesium is a metallic element which is an essential nutrient and plays several vital roles in the body

2. Metallic elements can be found in solid metal or metallic form such as a gold nugget, a copper penny or bronze, which is a combination of metallic minerals. Metallic elements can be found in the soil in tiny particles in this form but would be non-soluble and fairly difficult to assimilate. Only metallic elements are capable of conducting electricity in solid form.

Elemental Minerals:

1.     All minerals are elemental or elements when looked at and analyzed individually. Therefore, by this definition, all minerals could be referred to as elemental

2.     2. A pure mineral which is not balanced with other elements. This is usually accomplished through extensive processing such as extreme heat or electro-processing. Examples would include magnesium metal, copper metal or tin metal or chlorine gas. There are several problems which make this type of elemental mineral unsuitable for supplementation including the fact that most, if not all, of the minerals in this form would either become such a tightly bound metal that it would be virtually impossible to digest and assimilate or it would be so highly reactive that the mineral would be extremely toxic.  

 Inorganic Vs. Organic Minerals

From time to time some supplement companies claim {?} that their mineral supplements are superior to others because their products contain "organically-bound minerals" verus inorganic minerals. Such claims can create confusion in the minds of some consumers and are worth discussing. In the field of plant physiology it is a well known fact that minerals enter the plant roots in ionic form. When the mineral attempts to enter the exterior of the root in a non-ionic complexed form (i.e. organic), the complex is first broken down in the exterior of the root into an ionic form before it passes through a selective barrier known structurally as the xylem. From there the mineral is carried upward in its ionic state across critical membranes until the mineral is delivered to those leaves and other plant parts requiring them. This is essential to any plants ability to survive and grow normally.

What Is An Ion: An ion is a particle (either an atom or a group of atoms) that carries an electrical charge. There are two types of ions : positively charged ions called cations, and negatively charged ions called anions. Examples of important cations in the body include magnesium, sodium, potassium, calcium, and hydrogen. Important anions are bicarbonate, chloride, and phosphate.

Then What Is An Electrolyte: Substances that form ions are called electrolytes. Calcium, magnesium, chloride, bicarbonates, potassium, sodium, and hydrogen are all examples of electrolytes.

Minerals and Human Health

In almost every chemistry textbook one can find a copy of the "Periodic Table of the Elements." This table shows each known element's particular physical characteristics. Scientific study of these elements has discovered that many of them are absolutely essential to life on this planet.

A number of factors have been associated with the occurrence of a deficiency of a mineral in humans: deficiency in the soil; water and plants; mineral imbalances; processing of water or soil; and, inadequate dietary intake. There is a significant body of evidence that minerals by themselves and in proper balance to one another have important biochemical and nutritional functions. To understand the concept of "biochemical individuality" we have to get away from the mistaken assumption that every person utilizes and absorbs minerals the same way. The absorption of minerals is dependent on so many different factors, not the least of which is age, adequacy of stomach acid output, balanced bowel flora, lack of intestinal illnesses and parasites, and dietary fiber intake.

"Whatever the nutritional potential of a food, its contribution is nonexistent if it does not pass the test of absorption. Those nutrients that have not been transferred through the intestinal mucosal cell to enter the circulation have, for all nutritional intent and purpose, have never been eaten. The variety of nutrients from the organism's environment that have been made available by absorption must be transported through the circulatory system to the aqueous micro-environment of the cells. There, they serve their ultimate purpose: participation in the metabolic activities in the cells on which the life of the total organism depends." Ruth L. Pike and Myrtle L. Brown - Nutrition: An Integrated Approach- John Wiley & Sons, 1984 l, p. 283

Listed below in table 3 are eight minerals that should be ionic in order to be readily absorbed into the body through transfer in the small intestine (intraluminal absorption). These minerals become ionic after their food-bound forms, whether organically or inorganically bound, have been exposed to hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Hydrochloric acid helps liberate these minerals into ionic (charged) minerals. Aging increases the risk of gastric atrophy, a condition that commonly is associated with a decreased secretion of hydrochloric  acid in the stomach.

 As the level of hydrochloric acid output decreases, the body's ability to absorb these minerals from their food-bound form diminishes. This inability to adequately absorb these minerals may be one of the causes of age associated degeneration. It is for this reason that careful attention must be given to the form a mineral takes, since the less dependent it is on hydrochloric acid to be absorbed, the more likely it will be able to be utilized by the body. As will be discussed later, three of the minerals listed in table 3 can be intraluminally absorbed in some complexed forms without first becoming charged ions. However, all eight of these minerals are best absorbed when they are in their ionic form. The important point is that gastric atrophy or conditions such as achlorhydria (lack of stomach acid) or hypochlorhydria (inadequate stomach acid) can impair the body's absorption of important minerals. Achlorhydria has been found in children as young as five or six years of age. Hypochlorhydria, however, is more commonly seen after age 35. It is estimated that between 15 and 35 percent of adults age 60 have some degree of gastric atrophy, including hypochlorhydria. Finding a source of minerals in ionic form would clearly be of benefit to such individuals.                                        

                                                                   Table 3

Acid-Dependent Minerals That Require Adequate Stomach Acid to Enhance Intraluminal Absorption in the Small Intestine

                                            Chromium (Cr)         Manganese (Mn)

                                            Copper (Cu)             Molybdenum (Mo)

                                            Iron (Fe)                   Selenium (Se) Zinc

                                            Magnesium              (Mg) (Zn)

One of the minerals listed in table 3 is zinc, a mineral found in every fluid, tissue, cell, and organ, in the human body. Inadequate intake of this essential mineral can effect any of over 200 enzymes in the body, such as the enzyme, alkaline phosphatase. In patients with either bulimia nervosa (binge-purging behavior) or anorexia nervosa (self-induced starvation), zinc deficiency can directly affect cognitive and perceptual processes that help maintain these insidious eating disorders. Recently it has been shown that there is an inverse relationship between morbid obesity and zinc, meaning that the more morbidly obese the individual the lower their zinc status. This suggests that zinc plays an important role in the entire continuum of eating disorders, from obesity to anorexia nervosa. A similar example would be the mineral magnesium which plays a role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the body, many of which are directly related to cardiovascular health.

Non-Essential (Toxic) Elements:

Excessive levels of non-essential toxic elements, such as lead, cadmium, mercury, and aluminum, can have an "unbalancing" effect on trace element balances in the body's cells, as can be seen in the table 4 below. Cadmium, an air pollutant from cigarette smoke, industrialization, and population growth, is known to experimentally cause hypertension, cancer, and immune disorders. Cadmium acts like a classical stress agent. It has also been implicated in learning disabilities. Unlike lead which has a short half-life in human tissue from 30 to 100 days, cadmium has a half-life of between 10-30 years. While it is known that free cadmium is very toxic, it has also been found to greatly increase the toxicity of other agents. Cadmium has a unique capacity to form a very close bond with chloride compounds, such as the chlorinated pesticide lindane. When the two are combined, the tissue levels of lindane doubles by altering liver metabolism. Cadmium accumulates in the most malignant cells; in prostate cancer there is a linear correlation between the grade of malignancy and cadmium content. On the positive side, little cadmium is absorbed orally unless there are nutrient deficiencies. Which nutrients protect against cadmium and other non-essential elements is found listed in table 5.

Lead (Pb)                              Zinc, Iron, Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Sulfur Amino Acids

Mercury (Hg)                         Selenium, Vitamin C, Pectin, Sulfur Amino Acids

Besides all of these more obvious issues are two important factors:

1)     diseases

2)     drug-nutrient interactions.

 Physical illness can raise demands for many trace elements. The demand for some minerals, such as zinc, even increases under psychological stress. Drug-nutrient interactions can also create deficiencies and imbalances of minerals at the cell level. For example, the absorption of iron from the gut can be affected by antacids and tetracycline. Magnesium and zinc are hyper-excreted by those receiving oral diuretics, nephro-toxic drugs, penicillamine, and antacids containing aluminum hydroxide.

Recent research indicates that minerals may play a significant role against a variety of degenerative diseases and processes. They may also prevent and reduce injury from environmental pollutants and enhance the ability to work and learn. They can also protect the body from the effects of toxic minerals, as can be seen by the table 5 above.

New studies suggest that numerous minerals, when in proper balance with one another, may be performing important non-classical biochemical functions especially important to age-related health problems. Examples will be illustrated in the second chapter. Given this body of new data, we should begin to view our daily intake of nutrients as performing dual roles; first in the role of preventing known mineral deficiencies; and, second in optimizing the disease-preventing properties of these nutrients. The latter role, and the increasing evidence that supports it, makes it reasonable to believe that it will be possible to reduce optimal daily nutrient intake levels. The key is insuring that the body always receives an adequate and balanced supply of all minerals (elements) that might be of potential benefit to maintaining our health or restoring our health. One can summarize the health benefits of some trace elements in table 6 below. These minerals can be of benefit as described in table 6 if they are in balance with other elements they interact with.

Table 6

Examples of Health Benefits of Selected Trace Elements

Calcium                        Essential for developing and maintaining healthy bones and teeth.         -                                 -Assists in blood clotting, muscle contraction and nerve transmission.     -                                  Helps reduce risk of osteoporosis.

Chromium                    Aids in glucose metabolism and regulates blood sugar.

Sulfur                           Needed for muscle protein and hair.

Zinc                             Essential part of more than 200 enzymes involved in digestion,           -                                  metabolism, reproduction and wound healing.

Establishing optimal nutrient levels as an additional yardstick in assessing nutrient intake has important implications. Recent analyses of data of nutrient and supplement intake in the United States conducted by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and other government agencies indicate that the vast majority of people in both affluent and emerging industrialized countries do not reach even 50% of the minimal Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for nutrients. This finding may be seen by some as discouraging, especially if evidence continues to support the view that nutrient levels above the RDA perform a role in the prevention of chronic diseases. It is also valuable to know that the realization of the importance of trace elements to human health is of recent origin. For example, only fifteen years ago every textbook taught that the trace element boron was non-essential to all mammals, including man. However, today it is believed to be so important to human health that numerous scientists are preparing to petition the governments to urge them to recognize boron as a trace element essential to human health.

Equally important is the ratio of trace elements. For example, if you compare the levels of minerals in human's and cow's milk, you will see significant differences between the two. In fact, the ration of mother's milk is different for every animal, suggesting the importance nature has placed on the differential physiological needs of each animal on this planet.

What functions do electrolytes perform in the body?

Some examples of what specific anions and cations do in the body include:

Anions (-)   Effect on the Body

Bicarbonate Neutralize stomach acid; maintain acid-base balance.

Chloride Component of stomach acid (hydrochloric acid); maintain acid-base balance ; maintain water balance.

Phosphate Maintain acid-base balance; protein and energy metabolism; maintain structure of cell membranes.

Cations (+)Effect on the Body

Calcium Help nerves conduct messages; muscle contractions; blood clotting; signaling the heart muscle.

Magnesium Enzyme activation; muscle contraction; protein metabolism; nerve conduction; bone and teeth formation.

Potassium Nerve conduction; maintain water balance; maintain acid-base balance; muscle contraction.

Sodium Maintain water balance; maintain acid-base balance; muscle contraction; nerve contraction.

Hydrogen Component of stomach acid (hydrochloric acid); maintain acid- base balance.

From the examples above, it is clear that maintaining a balance of cations and anions in the body is essential to our health. For example, the acidity of the blood is dependent on the level of hydrogen cations. To prevent the blood from becoming too acidic, hydrogen cations are neutralized by bicarbonate anions. Should the fluid state within any cell become too acidic, phosphate anions inside the cells will "neutralize" the cations to restore balance. In this way you can see how a natural inorganic magnesium source, such as magnesium chloride, can provide both a cation and an anion vital to maintaining the electrical balance in the fluid and the cells of the body;  kept in balance within a very narrow range; any significant deviation can result in symptoms.

Many trace elements are better absorbed in humans and animals if they are in ionic form (see table 3 above for listing of these elements). Magnesium, for example, from a variety of more expensive organic salts (acetate, citrate, lactate) and less expensive organic salts (carbonate, chloride, oxide, phosphate and sulfate) have been shown to be equally absorbed from green leafy vegetables ("organic" magnesium) is equivalent to the absorption of magnesium from magnesium chloride ("inorganic magnesium"). These finds, and many others, question the assumption that "organic" minerals are somehow superior to "inorganic" minerals. There have been many studies on mineral absorption in humans. Professors Rosenberg and Solomons of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) state that:

"Insofar as minerals in the diet are often bound to proteins, complexed with organic molecules in food, or otherwise imbedded in the matrix of food-stuffs, the mechanical processes of mastication, dissolution, dispersion, and often digestion are important preparative steps to absorption. Moreover, at the conclusion of the afore mentioned reductive processes, minerals generally emerge in the intestinal lumen as charged ions , e.g. Fe**, PO4--, SeO3--." Rosenberg, I.H., Solomons, N.W. In: Absorption and Malabsorption of Mineral Nutrients. Alan R. Liss, 1984, p. 2.

In other words, the form of the mineral in foodstuffs or a dietary supplement is not quite as important as making sure it is in an ionic form at the point of intraluminal absorption. The dominant factor is that the mineral must be freed from whatever matrix it is contained in until it is in such an ionic form that  it can be taken up in the intestine. Rosenberg and Solomons state that in order for most minerals to be absorbed it is essential to acidify the stomach contents to liberate the minerals from their food matricies. (ibid, p.5) They also point out that excesssive alkalinization later on in the small intestinal contents can reduce the solubility of certain minerals in the gut, thereby reducing absorption of those minerals. So no matter if the mineral is organically bound or not, other factors must be considered.

That is not to say that there aren't some minerals such as iron or cobalt that are absorbed from foods such as components of complex organic entities (heme porphyrin, coalamin) at the point of absorption. The primary source of these minerals come from food. Iron in the form of hemoglobin and myoglobin in red meats is more bioavailable than inorganic iron. (In the case of iron, an excessive intake of dietary iron can lead to ill-health, especially in individuals with iron storage disorders.)

Trace Element Interactions and Balance

The importance of maintaining optimal ratios of nutrients is important in the prevention, mitigation and treatment of numerous diseases. For example, in a recent review on the role of trace elements and hypertension (high blood pressure) the authors came to the conclusions that: "Clearly, nutrients function interactively both in the body and in their impact on blood pressure regulation. Whenever the consumption of a single nutrient is significantly altered, an entirely new dietary pattern is created. Nutrients occur in clusters in the diet and may therefore act synergistically to alter physiologic variables such as blood pressure." Ref: Reusser, M.E., McCarron, D.A., Nutr Rev., 1994: 52; 367-375.

Simply stated, trace elements must exist in relative balance in the fluids, cells, organs, and tissues of the body to contribute to human health.

Summary : Trace minerals do not exist by themselves but in relationship to one another. Too much of one trace element can lead to imbalances in others resulting in disease, rather than the absence of disease. Most trace elements need to be in ionic form to be well-absorbed in the intestine. Other factors, such as diet, trace element concentrations in water, drug-nutrient interactions, etc., play a role in maintaining a balance of trace elements in the body.

The Thesis of Body Mineral Balancing

 

General functions performed by soluble minerals.

Ionized conductors of the body's electrical current necessary for body functions .Catalysts and activators of other nutrients. Building blocks of enzymes, hormones and other natural body chemicals used by the body to perform specific functions. Equalizing and balancing effects. body fluids, fluid pressures, and PH are balanced with minerals. Also, it is known that in the absence of certain trace minerals, certain heavy metals are more likely to accumulate. Trace minerals are often administered in hospitals as part of the treatment for such disorders as lead poisoning. Digestion and assimilation -- Minerals are essential -- High amounts of chlorides are necessary for the body to make hydrochloric acid. Others are used in the assimilation process.

Specific mineral nutrients have many individual functions. I believe that many of these functions are yet to be discovered. Following is How Some People Have Used The Earth's Soluble Minerals Much of this information is not based on scientific data or testing, but on personal experience of various individuals.

General Health: Personally, I feel the difference when I supplement with these minerals. My energy level is higher and my mental alertness is more keen. Some people report feeling a spark of energy immediately upon taking these minerals. An excellent addition or any nutritional program.

Arthritis: Dr. George W. Crane M.D., writes often in his newspaper column of almost  miraculous results with all types of arthritis in many individuals. Results can be felt often in as little as one week and within three months.

Herbs: Reports of synergistic effects, combining nutrients from plants with nutrients from the sea. Nutritional Support Programs for eyes, heart and circulation have been greatly enhanced when combined with balanced nutrients from the sea, report many users.

Immune Therapy: Dr. Virginia Livingston, M.D. reports that soluble minerals are invaluable in conjunction with their immune therapy program.

Food Allergies: One medical doctor reports dramatic results with diet returning to normal after balancing of minerals with concentrated sea water.

Dieting: Many reports of increased energy during dieting, some with a decrease in a craving for food. As a teenager, these minerals were an invaluable aid for me in going from fat to fit, with a drastic lift in my energy level.

Replace Lost Minerals in Distilled Water: Bone Spurs- -Reports to the effect that they have disappeared in as little as one month. Hair - Good reports in many individuals, particularly in hair sheen and luster. Some reports of hair and scalp returning to a more youthful condition.Animals - Animals as well as humans need mineral nutrients. Often the results are very dramatic in animals vigor, coat, and performance. Excellent reports on dogs,cats, chickens, race horses, chinchillas, etc

Magnesium Supplement: Sea minerals are one of the highest quality and least expensive sources of this important nutrient. hardening and Strengthening Bones and Teeth Good reports and personal experience of strengthening body frame, reduction in cavities and tightening of teeth in jaw.

Anti-Aging: Many reports of feeling more youthful, vibrant, and a reversal of age related symptoms.

Following are reports from clinics who have used the sodium removed concentrate from the Great Salt Lake: We have found the Trace Minerals to be very effective in a wide range of stress and pollution related diseases. They are also very effective in stabilizing spinal problems, especially low back conditions. From Scandinavia we have had favorable reports about their effect on osteo and rheumatoid arthritis. This had also been the experience of this clinic. In short we consider the liquid Trace minerals to be by far one of the most effective single food supplements on the market. This is an assessment based on fourteen years of work with the liquid Trace Minerals. Dr. Carl H. Jestrup, D.C.

Mental stability, thought process and reaction to stressful situations appear to be greatly dependent on a proper trace mineral balance in the human body; vitamins appear to function better if proper elements are present for them to work with. The trace mineral concentrate to us is worth it's weight i gold. It has done nothing except improve a bad problem we did not know what else to do for. The trace mineral concentrate . . . appears to be the only active mineral supplement we have found.  In the research I have conducted as a doctor of Chiropractic and my knowledge gained over the years, I have found that race minerals are very important in every chemical reaction which takes place in the human body. They either take active part in the reaction or act as a catalyst to a reaction. When the body becomes depleted in minerals, these reactions also slow down and allow a disease process to take over destroying the physical structure. R. Schiffer, D.C.

We cannot ignore [these] minerals assimilative abilities to prevent against such mineral-related applications as osteoporosis, muscle problems, and glandular disorders such as seen in clinical practice, These minerals should always be used in preventative health programs for all individuals.

Comparisons of Complete Spectrum Trace Minerals

Advantages… Disadvantages: Ancient Sea Deposit Minerals Good for adding complete Spectrum Trace Minerals to the soil. Abundant and low cost. The tableted form from clays, ground rocks or petrified vegetation can be very difficult for many people to digest and assimilate.  Liquids made from these deposits tend to be very expensive and are usually high in Aluminum and Sulphur and may upset body's PH  balance. 

Sea Water Abundantly available… Perfected by nature.

To assure purity obtain from at least 30 miles out, away from population centers at lowest  possible depth. Relatively high cost per day for commercially available product. The Great Salt Lake Water is 6 to 1 0 times the concentration of sea water with the same mineral balance… Bacteria free…and can be used as a seasoning. Water obtained from lower depths of the north end of the lake is extremely pure and more concentrated. No major fresh water flows into this part of the lake which is isolated by barren desert and a railroad land fill. University studies show it takes over 100 years for surface water to concentrate and sink to the lower depths of the lake. It is more difficult to obtain because it is remote from most population centers. Sodium removed concentrate from Great Salt Lake. Highly concentrated (over 50 times the concentration of sea water in minerals and balance except Sodium and some Potassium which are precipitated out.) 

Research on ConcenTrace Trace Minerals ... go to Mineral Resources International for more info... Researched, harvested, bottled & labeled by: MRI... 1990 West 3300 South Ogden, Utah 84401, USA... The Reason for the Research in 1992 was that I was being chemically poisoned in the construction industry in 1990-91... and I found a way to cleanse my body with these minerals... I have personally used these trace minerals everyday since 1995... Robert Donald Tonelli

 Email Rob @ newscienceofspirit@gmail.com if you are interested in learning

how to make the Milk of the Gods Mineral supplement... classes start soon.

... Monoatomic Elements were taught to him by alchemist Larry Blackman and his apprentice John Brown... Once you learn the water process for making real monoatomic elements taken from the great Salt Lake... you can learn the fire process directly from the source... [ remember these are real elements tested  by the alchemist himself in high levels that have been known to cure all disease... these are not homeopathic formulations... nor are they measured in parts per millions or billions like most of the products sold on the internet... (you can get more monos or Ormus from drinking "Seneca Concentrated Grape juice"... a Cabernet wine or fresh organic carrot juice than from these other products at a fraction of the price.)]   This formulation is the real deal where 30% of the elements besides magnesium are stabilized in a chemical(sodium) box. Read the Book, Milk of the Gods to learn all the places you can find ORMES [ orbitally rearranged monoatomic elements]

  If you liked what you read and would like to try a free 1oz bottle of Milk of the Gods, Mineral Supplement: buy the E-book, Milk of the Gods: Decoding the Philosophers Stone...
