WHAT ARE COLLOIDAL MINERALS?
A colloid is a particle substance that retains its identity and remains in liquid suspension. Colloids are very small in size and therefore easily absorbed by the cells of the body. Plants convert metallic minerals into this form. Dr. Carey Reams, a well known biophysicist and biochemist, discovered that colloids can get so small they can go through glass. And that even within a colloid there can be a "solar system" of different minerals. They have a natural negative electrical charge. Dr. Reams found that the human body requires 84 of the known 106 elements to maintain optimum health. Many more than is currently recognized.
In 1925, a historic discovery was made by Thomas J. Clark, a rancher in Central Utah. Through an unusual set of circumstances the mineral remains of an ancient rain forest, determined by the US. Dept. of Interior to be from the Cretaceous Period, approximately 60 million to 127 million years old, were encapsulated and preserved. The material is humic shale, not bentonite, clay or dried up sea beds which is the most common source of so called Colloidal Minerals. Only a small portion from various parts of the deposit are used to insure a balance of the over 65 various minerals and trace minerals that form the exclusive, Majestic Earth product that meets Dr. Wallach's quality standards, the rest is sold to bulk processors and distributed under various no name lables. Only the American Longevity products represents the Majestic Earth product. Time tested by 70 years of use. This is the product all others try to compare themselves with.
These rare colloidal plant minerals are extracted with pure, cool clear water to the desired concentration and then processed through a complex array of special filters to allow only the organic colloidal minerals in the final solution. There are no preservatives, flavorings. or synthetic substances added.
The Majestic Earth liquid minerals have a natural negative electrical charge, which is the signature of the true plant derived mineral. This has two very important benefits. One, it greatly increases the transport and bioavailability of other nutrients gotten from foods and/or vitamins and other supplements. And two, it will attract toxins and heavy metals from the body and flush them out. Clinical tests done here in the US. and in Germany have verified this.
The mineral product that Dr. Joel Wallach is referring to on his audio tape, "Dead Doctors Don't Lie", is the Majestic Earth product which has been on the market for 70 years. There is a product being sold as "concentrated" this is a Clark bulk item and has been on the market since late 1996. It is not what the Dr is referring to on the tape. It is called Bait and Switch. Clark makes no statements as to the mineral content, or concentration in the bulk product line. Buyer Beware. Dr. Wallach exclusively represents American Longevity and only endorses or recommends their liquid colloidal mineral products.
Minerals in their metallic form can be toxic to the human body. Dangerous levels of these metallic minerals can accumulate in the tissues and create serious health problems. These are found in the 2000 year old sea bed deposits, and are loaded with chloride. Very toxic inorganic minerals are being sold to an unsuspecting public under the guise of colloidal. The key factor is true plant derivation. There is currently only one source, American Longevity.
Plant source minerals, produced by the Majestic Earth company are completely non-toxic, and is proven by its 70 year history of positive results with the thousands of its customers, and verified by the following scientific test done in Germany.
WHAT THE VITAMIN PEOPLE FAIL TO TELL YOU ABOUT THEIR SUPPLEMENTS
When you are taking a vitamin-mineral tablet, you are taking what is called "METALLIC MINERALS" (also known as elemental minerals or salts); You only absorb 8-12% of these metallic minerals, the rest passes through you. If you talk to a doctor or chiropractor who x-rays patients, he'll tell you can see the MINERAL TABLETS on the x-ray as they pass through the small intestines and out of your system.
Before you can use even the normal 8-12% of a metallic mineral, the WHOLE mineral must be broken down by your body. That's asking a lot of a body unless it's already in top shape.
The health food industry worked on this problem in the late 70's, they developed "chelated" minerals: wrapping amino acids or protein around the minerals helps the body metabolize them. This results in slightly over 50% absorption at best.
Keep in mind....metallic minerals come from oyster shell, calcium carbonate, limestone, clay, sea salts. Supposedly, too much of some of these elements can have toxic effects on your body. Human beings are not able to efficiently absorb them or to use them. Certain animals are, but we are not. Nevertheless, that's where the minerals in most mineral tablets come from.
470,000,000 - YEAR - OLD GOLD MINE
There is another form of minerals, available in the product "Majestic Earth"; (MT). These don't come from rocks & soil. They are neither metallic nor salts.
The Youngevity minerals come from humic shale. What's that? Well, it's prehistoric plant life in its concentrated form. The Youngevity colloidal minerals was first discovered on a Utah mountain top and sold in 1926, as "Clark's Mineral Water". That was 70 years ago, so we're not talking about some brand new, unproven product.
Youngevity is still harvested on that mountain today, from a 70-million-year-old humic shale deposit. The air was full of oxygen back then, not like today. Some trees grew 25 feet A YEAR! Earth was a nutrient rich environment.
THE HIDDEN KEY TO YOUR FAMILY'S HEALTH
How did minerals get into the plant back then? Of course, they came from soil and rock. But they became part of the plant through the process of photosynthesis.
And that made them "colloidal", which is our key word for today. Comparing plant derived colloidal minerals to rock and shell based minerals is like comparing filet mignon to gristle. Colloidal minerals have a negative electrical charge, and each particle is hundreds of times smaller than a metallic mineral. The colloidals stay suspended in water rather than going into solution because of the negative charge and their size/weight ratio.
Expert chemists say the reason colloidals are non-toxic is because of their plant or vegetable source, and their negative electrical charge. For example, iodine in colloidal form is one of the elements essential for human cells. But, if you drank even 2-3 grains of free iodine, it would surely kill you. In collodial form, it is not only harmless, it is beneficial. The same is true for arsenic, lead, aluminum, and other minerals considered toxic.
Plant Colloidals are the smallest particles that matter can be divided into while still keeping its individual characteristics. The particles range from 0.01 millionths of an inch to 10 millionths of an inch in size. The smaller ones cannot be seen with any microscope. Their small size gives colloidal minerals enormous surface area, and special properties of absorption for your body, as opposed to rock and shell based minerals. One teaspoon of colloidals can have a total surface area of over 127 acres. With billions of tiny electrically-charged minerals.
Soil with a similar amount of minerals, but metallic, have particles which are hundreds or thousands of times larger, and positively-charged, which makes a big difference. You can't absorb them. If you're starving and you eat soil, you would get no nourishment. Your body just cant absorb inorganic minerals efficiently, nor can it convert them. Only a plant can take dead soil out of the earth, and make live material that your body can use.
DO YOUR BLOOD A FAVOR
Plant Derived Colloidal minerals are truly the most efficient way to get your minerals. You can absorb 98% of them. They are liquid. They have a small particle size. To give you a comparison: a red blood cell is 7 microns. A colloidal mineral particle is 0.01 micron (or less): that is 1/7000th the size of a red blood cell.
Colloidal Minerals move around in our bodies through our blood, and we store minerals in our cells. The small size of colloidal minerals is ideal. The negative charge means they stay in solution or suspension- they don't settle out. They are very very absorbable.
If you're going to spend money for minerals, you should get the highest value for your dollar. Plus, it is far easier to get kids to take liquid colloidal minerals than any big pills. Most "kids" products don't contain many minerals anyway. Read the lables: they have maybe one mineral, or five, or fifteen at most. And the other 40+ minerals humans need??? In fact, you don't get the minerals or the balanced nutrition you and your family need to help manage stress and stay vital.
Youngevity Minerals has 7 major and 65 minor colloidal trace minerals which go into instant action in your body. They're so potent that a gallon of Youngevity Minerals can supply two years' worth of minerals obtained from the average diet.
THE EXTRAORDINARY YOUNGEIVTY COLLOIDAL MINERALS
They give you what you used to think you got from your vegetables.
Our depleted soils have been strip-mined for 100+ years. They no longer contain the minerals your body needs, nor do commercial fertilizers. As a result, many Americans suffer mineral deficient diseases.
Instead of having to break down bulky, compressed tablets or gelatin capsules, the body can immediately go to work using the Youngevity minerals. People who dislike taking pills for any reason find the Youngevity Liquid Minerals simple and easy.
Predigested by plants, Youngevity Minerals have the most absorbable nutrients you can get. At least 98% of Youngevity's Majestic Earth Ultimate and Plus brands can be absorbed, as opposed to chelated (40-60%) or regular (8-12%) minerals.
Which means the Youngevity minerals won't interfere with any other supplemental or therapeutic program. Instead, they assist any and all diets, medication or herbs to work faster and more efficiently.
They're found in nature's best balance.
Most scientific studies isolate minerals and vitamins from each other in order to study and market them. However, the natural proportions of minerals created in Mother Nature's laboratory synergise for the best digestion and balance possible. Most importantly, it comes from a unique, pure earth-based source...best for land animals and people.
They are an inexpensive "PREVENTATIVE", while being rich in substance.
