First of all, when we refer to these mines, you need to know what we are mining! Pure organic plant derived minerals come from a vein of humic shale (prehistoric plant life!). This is key when you are looking for plant derived colloidal minerals for nutritional purposes! These minerals are directly from plants! You can literally peel apart the 'leaves' in the humic shale. They are as easy to absorb....(and as harmless) and helpful as the minerals in your veggies! And if in fact our foods still contained these essential minerals, then there would be no need for us to supplement. But, as you know, our soil and ultimately our food is mineral deficient! (Senate Doc. 264)
The Rockland Mine is located in Emery County, Utah. There are a few other mines in Emery County...T J Clark Mine is one of them. To give you an idea of the tremendous differences in mines: The Rockland Mine vein of humic shale is on average, 70 feet deep. The Youngevity Mine vein is on average 3 1/2 feet deep.
You must have at least a 7-foot vertical draw of the humic shale to get a full spectrum of the minerals! Obviously, TJ can't pull a complete spectrum of minerals with a 3 1/2 foot vein .... their products must use what is called a 'blend'. They pull minerals from other sources to complete their "full spectrum" (if in fact they have even that!) And as a wise consumer, you must question if these additions are also plant derived!
You must insist on Organic Plant Derived Minerals! Some companies use elemental or ionic minerals. which are not utilized by the body and in some cases can be toxic!
Doctor Wallach has exclusive rights, as a network marketing company, to the Rockland Mines! Youngevity IS the only network company using Rockland Mines...the full spectrum, full strength, complete source of organic plant derived minerals around! You won't find that anywhere else!
And the leeching of the minerals at the Rockland plant is so high quality - so pure - so recognized in the industry, that Este Lauder, with thousands of products and known around the world, is going to use the Rockland Minerals in their product line
These are reasons why Youngevity 's minerals are so great! These are reasons why your source for plant derived minerals is so important!
