Organic vs. anorganic minerals

1. Are inorganic minerals positively charged?

Are organic minerals (e.g. in plants), always negatively charged? The first order of business when discussing "inorganic" vs. "organic" minerals is to clarify the fact that we are talking about the "source", not the minerals themselves.

In the strictest terms, all minerals are inorganic, but the term organic is used more or less to associate these minerals with their plant (organic), source. Inorganic minerals can be either positively, or negatively charged depending on their characteristic atomic structure which is identified by their arrangement of protons, neurons and electrons.

Trace Mineral Supplementation and The Effect On Total Nutrient Serum Levels

Steven E. Whiting, Ph.D.  Institute of Nutritional Science San Diego, June 1993 

Abstract. The action of trace minerals as catalysts in a plethora of biochemical bodily functions has long been known.  

Our goal was to determine the effect of a rapidly absorbed trace mineral source on the serum levels of the full spectrum of known nutrients.  

Our testing program employed the use of 96 volunteers ranging in age from 23 to 81 years. Some of these individuals were of general good health while others indicated physical problems which ranged from minor to major chronic disease conditions.

Colloidal Minerals In a Nutshell

In A Nutshell

Hundreds of thousands of people have benefited for over 70 years from a product discovered by a southern Utah rancher (before that Indians used it for healing for generations). It has proved useful for a great variety of seemingly unrelated problems: 

"I've got more energy... my arthritis got better... my blood sugar stabilised... early cataracts went away... my white hair turned black again, my knee arthritis got better... reduced blood-cell clumping."

Of course not everyone will experience all these benefits - there are many causes of problems like those above . But how could one product really help so many totally different problems?

Colloidal Minerals - Fact and Myth

Steven E. Whiting, Ph.D.  Institute of Nutritional Science San Diego

With the tremendous success of trace mineral products in the marketplace there naturally will be differences of opinion regarding type, form, source, etc. Unfortunately, most of this 'controversy' comes from the marketing departments of various firms attempting to cast aspersions on competing products.

Many of the companies currently selling liquid mineral supplements have jumped on the bandwagon very recently, doing so with little or no knowledge of the product they are promoting. It is tragic that the biggest source of nutritional information available to the public is the marketing hype delivered by companies whose goal is to simply sell a product rather than provide an education and information source to the clientele they service.

More On Mineral Depletion

Perhaps the best summary is by Dr. William A. Albrecht, Chairman of the Department of Soils at the University of Missouri, who said;

"A declining soil fertility, due to a lack of organic material, major elements, and trace minerals, is responsible for poor crops and in turn for pathological conditions in animals fed deficient foods from such soils, and that mankind is no exception."

Verbatim Unabridged extracts from the 74th Congress 2nd Session

"Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume."

"Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until depleted soils from which our food comes are brought into proper mineral balance?"

Hippocrates Corner™
A Special Focus On The Value of Organic, Plant-Derived Minerals

As children we're taught to eat a well-balanced diet consisting of four major food groups. As adults we've realized that this advice, while admirable and a good starting place, is partly responsible for a nation of woefully undernourished citizens. Even if everyone ate a so-called 'well-balanced' diet we'd still be lacking in vitamins, enzymes, and minerals. Why? Two main reasons: 1) the foods we eat are grown from soil that has little, if any, minerals and 2) most of our foods are processed in ways that destroy almost all their nutritional value.

Food gives us energy, but enzymes, vitamins, and minerals are the building blocks that enable our bodies to use that energy to keep us alive and healthy.
