Why do many nutritionists say minerals are more important than vitamins?
Those who have studied the body and the effect of nutrients have learned vitamins have little or no benefit in the absence of adequate minerals.
I have heard some nutritional experts say the world is facing a health crisis because of mineral deficiencies. Is this true?
This may be very true! It’s been said that possibly 100% of all humans and animals suffer from a mineral deficiency. Much of this can be attributed to a deficiency of minerals in the soils where plants grow. In prehistoric times the soils of the earth, within 2 metres of the surface, contained upward of 80 minerals. Today, we are lucky to find more than 18 minerals. This deficiency occurred due to millions of years of wind and rain erosion, several hundred years of unwise farming practices and now to some extent, from commercial fertilisers.
What is the difference between Major minerals and Trace minerals?
There is no difference. All minerals are the same. However, those that the World Health Organisation believes an adult needs in quantities of more than 100 MG per day are classified as major minerals. Those that are believed to be required in smaller quantities are called trace minerals.
Why do the well-known mineral supplements contain only about 12 minerals at best?
Most nationally advertised mineral supplements come from the earth and are classified as metallic minerals. They are usually available in capsule or tablet form. All metallic minerals come from soil, ground up rocks, salts or ancient seabeds etc. Due to the earth’s mineral deficiency, there are not more than 12 or 15 minerals available to put into most nationally advertised brands.
If the earth is deficient in minerals, how can Sizzling Minerals claim to have all the minerals we need?
The Sizzling Minerals come from a prehistoric deposit of plant humus that accumulated, according to scientists, around seventy million years ago. It is believed the plants that grew during that period contained 75 to 80 minerals because there were at least 80 minerals in the soil to feed the plants. This Humus, referred to as Humic Shale has been safely encapsulated far below the earth’s surface for millions of years.
What is the difference between plant minerals and metallic minerals?
Metallic minerals are metals and are much more difficult to assimilate because they are harder for the human digestive system to dissolve. Minerals like those that come from tomatoes, carrots, apples or Sizzling Minerals were at one time metallic minerals. As the plants grew the metallic minerals passed through the plant roots and through a scientific process known as photosynthesis, the metallic minerals became water-soluble and were broken down in size. This is Mother Nature’s way of converting metallic minerals into a more usable and effective form for human and animal consumption. According to the Colorado School of Mines, a plant mineral (depending on the specific mineral) is hundreds and even thousands of times smaller than a metallic mineral. It is understood that due to the solubility and small size, a plant derived mineral can be more easily assimilated than a metallic mineral.
