- What are trace minerals?
Most of us are familiar with the minerals that are found in significant quantities in our bodies. We’re aware of the importance of calcium, magnesium, and potassium. There are, however, other minerals that we need in minute quantities called “trace minerals.” Though less understood, research is revealing the vital role they have in the overall structure and function of the human body. Many people are recognizing the need to supplement their diets with trace minerals such as copper, zinc, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, iodine, selenium, silver, and boron.
- Can’t we get the minerals we need from our food?
Factory farming has depleted the soil of many essential minerals, returning only a few used in fertilizers to stimulate rapid plant growth: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Consequently few people get anywhere near the minerals they need for optimum health.
- Are many minerals included in this formula?
Yes. ColloidaLife Trace Minerals™ contains 72 colloidal minerals and ionic electrolytes—20 individually produced, discrete, stable mineral colloids and trace amounts of 52 other minerals in the form of ionic electrolytes from highly purified ocean water. The trace minerals are responsible for many physical functions, primarily involving the activity of enzymes and the production of hormones. The ionic electrolytes provide electrical charges and are co-factors in numerous essential enzyme systems.
- What are colloidal minerals?
The key to formulating colloidal trace mineral supplements is found at the molecular level. Colloids are particles in a solution that are completely dispersed and will not settle out. Many trace mineral products are just water leached through mineral deposits, and contain high levels of undesirable minerals. ColloidaLife is prepared through a proprietary process whereby 20 minerals are individually prepared as colloids.
- Does it taste metallic?
No. It is neutral in taste, Source Naturals ColloidaLife can be held under the tongue for sublingual absorption, or swallowed directly.
