Our bodies consist of a bag of water, held together by minerals and running on electricity. With our body made up of around 60% of water, minerals are like the nuts and bolts that hold us together and make everything work. The brain runs the body by sending electrical signals to make everything function. The truth is that without minerals you would die. Minerals are more important than vitamins because the body can make vitamins but it cannot make minerals. They must come from 'Mother Nature'.
Some doctors estimate that because our cells are constantly being replaced, that over a period of 7-10 years, every cell in the body has been replaced. In effect, this means that none of us are more than 10 years old. This cell replacement cannot be done without minerals, so if you are not getting the essential minerals that your body needs, then how healthy will your body be in 7-10 years? Minerals are like an investment in your future health and well being. Lets face it, the older we get, the more help we need
Absorption is the key. A small amount of 'Natural' minerals that are 'Plant-Derived' and 'Organic' and in a liquid form, are far better than a large amount of synthetic minerals in tablet form. Most tablets are only absorbed about 20-30% and the amount that is absorbed is struggling to get into your blood cells. (Ever tried to eat a 'Synthetic' apple?)
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE BEST LIQUID MINERALS?
The Top Trace Minerals
- Contain Fulvic Acid
- Produced using 'purified water'
- A 'Natural' Colloidal Product.
(You don't have to "Shake the bottle")
- Value for Money
The Bottom Trace Minerals
- From Sea Water or a Salt Lake
- From Coal or 'inorganic sources'
- Have No fulvic acid
- Produced using acid / hydroxide etc?
- You have to "Shake the bottle"
- Poor value for money
ALPHA MINERAL HEALTH SUPPORT IS ALL NATURAL AND ORGANIC... WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
The word "organic" is historical, dating back to the 1st century. Western alchemists believed that certain compounds could be synthesized only from their classical elements - Earth, Water, Air, and Fire - by action of a "life-force" possessed only by organisms. (See Fulvic Acid!) The meaning of an "organic compound" is any one of them that contains a significant amount of carbon. This is why minerals produced from seawater, fresh water, salt lakes or any inorganic compound are not fully absorbed and can be harmful to the body. The ‘Modern Day’ meaning of 'organic' is a product that is free of an insecticide or pesticide. Natural compounds refer to those that are produced by plants or animals. You cannot patent anything that comes from plants or animals, that is why drug companies use synthetics.
WHY SALT WATER MINERALS ARE NOT THE BEST FOR YOUR HEALTH:
Trace minerals manufactured by drying off the water from the Great Salt Lake are not the wisest choice to use as a mineral supplement. Most of these products contain about 70% of salt (sodium/chloride) per serving. The actual trace mineral content is about the same as sea water. They are not from 'plant matter' and these products contain NO Fulvic Acid. Fulvic acid is important because it acts as a delivery system for the nutrients and minerals. Minerals carried by fulvic acid are far more effective as a mineral and trace element supplement. Deposits that contain fulvic acid in its "Free Form", along with excellent mineral content, are in a league of their own.
TJ CLARK MINE:
ALPHA Mineral Health Support comes from the 'Original' TJ Clark Mine in Utah and have been produced since 1926. The Thomas Jefferson Clark mine was discovered in 1920 in a "prehistoric valley" in Utah. Some companies, 60 years later, (mainly MLM) started mining in the same valley to cash in on the "Colloidal Minerals" market.
These mines do not have the unique source of minerals that the original TJ Clark mine has. When plant matter is buried, pressure and heat eventually turn the plants into coal. (They become "carbonized") The Clark mine consists of plants that are suspended in the mid stage of this process. They look like solidified plants, feel like solidified plants, but never became "carbonized". You can crumble the source between your fingers. This enables the Clark family to extract the minerals using only purified water. the result is pure and natural colloidal trace minerals containing naturally occurring Fulvic Acid and other elements that Mother Nature has bestowed upon us!
Because the other companies mines are a few miles away from the "original" mine, they make bogus claims that the minerals they sell come from the same plant source and have been around for 60 - 70 years. In reality, the valley would not have had the same vegetation and circumstances throughout the whole area. e.g. The mine is on a higher elevation than the other mines. (It is like saying you scored a goal when you missed the goal post by a mile or two!)
Go down The Famous TJ Clark Mine In Utah
This is the mine that was discoverd by Thomas Jefferson Clark in 1920 and started the whole "Colloidal Minerals" industry. He used them personally for his health and in 1926 offered them to friends and relatives. There was such a positive response to the minerals that he eventually started selling them. When asked what kind of minerals were they, he did not know what to call them, so he said that they were 'Colloidal' minerals (Colloidal means in suspension) It was a mis-nomer because paint is colloidal but the name has stuck. Click here to see some of the other 'copycat' mines in the area.
WHAT ARE COLLOIDAL MINERALS?
In 1926 Thomas Jefferson Clark used the name "Colloidal Minerals" to describe his minerals that are so small that they do not fall out of suspension. 'Colloidal', which means colloid particles as small as one nanometer (1/1,000,000,000 - one one-billionth of a meter) that are in suspension in a liquid. If you buy other brands and it says on the bottle "Shake the bottle before using" then you are getting minerals that are too large to enter the blood cells. True Colloidal Trace Minerals remain "in solution" so you never have to shake the bottle.
BEWARE OF COPY CATS!
The give-away for the copy-cat minerals is that you have to "Shake The bottle' which means you are taking minerals that are "Not in Solution" and too large to enter the blood cells. Also to extract the minerals, they may have to use acid or an alkaline extractant because the coal has become 'carbonized' and is a poor substitute for the real TJ Clark minerals.
LHS should not be confused with:
- Colloidal Minerals containing Inorganic Sources
- Bogus minerals from another source in the prehistoric valley in Utah.
- Salt Water Extracts
- Great Salt Lake Extracts
- Chelated Minerals using amino acids to fool the body into trying to absorb 'Inorganic' minerals
- Diluted products with a pH near water. (Guess what you are buying?)
- So-called 100% Fulvic Acid minerals that are meant for agricultural use only!
LHS uses the 'Original TJ Clark minerals which are completely Water-Soluble, 100% Organic and Bio-Available. The size of the minerals (0.1 to 2 nanometers) are smaller than Ionic and Monatomic Minerals and Elements that are Angstrom Sized, They contain approximately 7% of Fulvic Acid.
Remember...It Is Not The Amount Of Minerals You Take, It Is The Amount You ABSORB!
