Frequently Asked Questions
We suggest adults take 15ml in a glass of juice or water once daily. If you are dealing with a health challenge or feeling under the weather you may double this. Children should take 3 ml in a glass of juice or water twice daily with food.
Yes, our product is 100% fulvic in solution. Life Minerals is rich in naturally occurring minerals sourced from deposits of humic shale/clay. These huge deposits were formed by plants growing more than 65 million years ago and have been protected by a layer of sandstone and contain over 70 different minerals and trace minerals.
There is a huge difference between an organic and an inorganic mineral.
Organically sourced minerals are the only type mineral that cannot go toxic. If the body does not use organically bound minerals in around 8 hours they pass out in the urine. With inorganically sourced minerals that may be true.
Research shows that organic plant-derived trace minerals will actually replace the heavy metals deposited in the body. The heavy metals are then flushed from the body.
This is best, though not absolutely necessary. Some people find the taste is improved by keeping them cold.
Although some companies claim that humic acids are superior to fulvic acids, this is incorrect. It is true that both fulvic and humic acids to have health benefits, there are differences between the two. Fulvic acids are a type of lightweight humic acid which has remarkably high oxygen content. You’ll often see that the fulvic and humic acid content in a product is displayed by their ratio to one another in their natural state. Fulvic acid offers numerous nutritional benefits, while non-fulvic humic acids contain stronger antiviral and antibacterial properties. Both fulvic acids and humic acids are included in Life Minerals.
If a substance is ionic, it has an electrical charge. Since all minerals contain an electrical charge, every mineral is ionic. Therefore, all colloidal minerals are ionic minerals, as well, so neither one can be superior to the other. According to scientific peer journals, fulvic and non-fulvic humic acids are colloids. However, the unique abilities of fulvic minerals to give up or take on ions allow them to provide amazing health benefits. For example, when fulvic colloids give up ions, they help deliver the benefits of mineral content to cells in the body. Likewise, fulvic colloids can take on ions to detoxify the body of unwanted substances. The abilities to give up and take on ions makes fulvic acid molecules very complex, which means they can never be synthesized.
The term “ionic” applies to all minerals since every mineral has an electrical charge. Colloidal minerals are groups of mineral molecules which are held together by electrical properties or suspended in a liquid. Meanwhile, “angstrom” refers to the size of the ions in a mineral. Each of these terms applies to fulvic acid minerals, making them one of the most complex and unique molecules found in nature. In fact, scientists and researchers have yet to find a way to synthesize colloids as unique as fulvic acid minerals, which are able to release single ions of angstrom size at the right time and place within the body. While most colloids are not easily absorbed, fulvic acids make our minerals special in that their donor and receptor sites make absorption much more efficient. In fact, a more scientific way to refer to these groupings of molecules is a “poly-colloidal fulvic mineral complex.”
Since we use only purified water to extract minerals from our source material, we have no need to hide behind a “proprietary process.” We use a cold water, heap leaching process to mimic the natural process that result in spring water. Our source material is among the rarest on earth, making it impossible for our product to be duplicated. If you want to know more about our process, please email us using the contact form on this website.
Yes, our product is plant-derived. If a fulvic mineral is of plant origin, it must contain trace amounts of all amino acids. Life Minerals has passed numerous laboratory tests for amino acid content, ensuring that it is a plant-derived product. This means that Life Minerals also contains carbon, iron, and at least 60 or more trace minerals and elements.
The majority of people who take Life Minerals feel a more consistent flow of daily energy and endurance within the first few days. After several weeks, other benefits are usually experienced by consistent users, including healthier hair, skin, nails, and teeth, improvements in the digestive system and a reduction in stress and aches and pains. Though you may not notice it, your body will also be experiencing an increased absorption of minerals from the foods and supplements you intake on a daily basis. Life Minerals is also a powerful, natural antioxidant, offering a “trickle-charge” of electrical energy which is vital to all living cells.
This is a nutritional supplement and therefore contains no medicinal properties or drugs as ingredients. The vast majority of individuals can take dietary supplements without any side effects whatsoever. However, if you are not accustomed to taking full spectrum dietary supplements and have a past history of sensitivities, you might wish to begin slowly, building up to the recommended level over a period of time. Unlike some vitamins you might take that could accumulate to toxic levels in your body, colloidal minerals not used by your body are excreted in a few hours
Minerals such as aluminium, arsenic, lead and so forth in the natural organic form are not only beneficial to the body but actually help the body to remove potentially harmful heavy metal forms of these elements.
So, in short, it is virtually impossible to overdose on it. Even if you were to take 10 times the recommended amount the only side effect might likely be diarrhoea for a day or so.
Life Minerals is a superior product compared to others on the market for several reasons. For example, Life Minerals contains only viable nutrients, unlike other mineral products which are actually made from coals like lignite or leonordite which are low in BTUs. Unlike Life Minerals, these inferior products contain little (if any) trace minerals or fulvic acids. Also, we only get our trace mineral products from natural, plant sources, while others derive their mineral products from salt lake sources which contain unhealthy levels of chloride and carbon. Therefore, Life Minerals contains high quantities of amino acids, trace minerals, fulvic acids, and humic acids without any of the metal, chloride, or carbon content found in other products.
No, Life Minerals are trace minerals, which are the rare minerals not commonly found in most foods. Calcium and magnesium are not trace minerals, therefore users cannot expect to replace their calcium and magnesium intake by using Life Minerals. Our product does, however, help fight against trace mineral deficiencies, which can have profound effects on overall health. Even the trace element arsenic, which is organic, fulvic, and poly-colloidal, is needed in trace amounts. Calcium and other macro-minerals like magnesium are best supplemented by taking calcium and magnesium in the form of a citrate, orotate, lactate, gluconate, or amino acid chelates. Avoid the use of coral calcium, calcium carbonate, or oxide forms of magnesium and zinc from limestone.
At this time, organic certification is not available for mineral products. However, based on the extensive laboratory testing performed on our product, we know that our minerals are indeed organic for the following reasons:
- They contain amino acids.
- They contain colloidal carbon and colloidal iron.
- They contain high quantities of fulvic acids and humic acids.
These scientific markers indicate the organic nature of our minerals. All mineral products on the market claiming to be “organic” should meet the same scientific criteria.
You will benefit from this product no matter when you decide to take it. You may experience the best results by taking just before, during or after a meal in the a.m. and/or p.m. By so doing, you benefit from the stomach’s activated digestive “juices” and can more quickly absorb the minerals..
