Calcium Absorption and Information


Ionized minerals, colloidal minerals, chelated minerals . . . What do they all mean? And what about true calcium absorption?

A large segment of the mineral industry includes ionized minerals. These minerals are suspended in a salt solution and express their electrical charge within that solution. Colloidal minerals are extremely small mineral particles suspended in liquid, but not ionized, which pass through body tissue.

Chelated minerals are wrapped in a huge, surface neutral amino acid molecule to ensure proper absorption. This is how the body naturally packages minerals from food for transport through the body.

Most minerals are absorbed within the first 18 inches of the small intestine. This area of the small intestine has a slightly negative charge. Get two magnets and put the positive and the negative side together. What happens? They stick together. The same thing happens inside your body.

Minerals such as potassium and sodium are light, expressing a single positive charge. These minerals can be accepted into the body without the large amino acid molecule carrier.

However, heavy minerals such as iron and calcium, which each express two positive charges, must be chelated or else they will become attached to the small intestine and form crystalline particles in the tissue.

Not only do the crystal remnants cause severe damage, but the body fails to receive the mineral nutrients it needs to function normally. The neutral surface charge of the amino acid molecule ensures the mineral within will be absorbed into the body as a nutrient instead of a harmful toxin.

Now, do you more fully understand the workings of calcium absorption?

It's dangerous to take huge quantities of minerals with no consideration of how they affect the body. And it's also unwise to take certain minerals singly or in the wrong combinations with other nutrients.

Be selective. The solution is supplying essential minerals in the correct measurement and combination. When minerals are in the form nature intended, they are easily recognized and used efficiently by the body. The best mode of calcium absorption (as well as other nutrient absorption) is through super foods.

Foods that are presented to the body as pristinely as possible. Yes, there are no more pristine soils now, but some ARE better than others. Do the best you can to ingest whole, super foods which already have been naturally chelated for total absorption into your electrical body.

Every body needs minerals that work!
