1. What are colloidal minerals?
A colloid is a particle substance that retains its identity and remains in suspension. Colloids are very small in size and therefore easily absorbed by the cells of the body. Plants convert metallic minerals into this form. Dr. Carey Reams, a well known biophysicist and biochemist, discovered that colloids can get so small they can go through glass. And that even within these plant colloids there can be a "solar system" in of different minerals. Dr. Reams maintains that the body requires 84 of the known 106 elements. Colloidal biochemistry is a very neglected branch of science and much research has yet to be done into the exact function of all the various elements.
2. Is it possible to test for particles down to these very small sizes?
With the standard method of testing, known as spectroscopy, the results are only approximate and are variable from lab to lab. To our knowledge there are only two super electron microscopes in the country that could possibly detect particles down to the size of the very small colloids found in our product. No known method can establish the exact form they are in.
3. What about minerals that are generally thought of as toxic?
Colloidal minerals, as found in plants, are not toxic, in fact are very beneficial. For example, aluminum (which makes up about 30% of the Earth's crust) is found in many foods. However, in its metallic form it can be harmful. The Harvard Medical Newsletter finally published the fact that none of the investigating laboratories had differentiated the form that the aluminum was in and the controversy over aluminum has since ceased. The same is true of arsenic, iodine, lead, mercury and other mineral elements. In their colloidal form they are needed by the body in trace amounts. In other words, microgram amounts. A microgram is only one millionth of a gram.
4. Are your minerals different from other colloidal minerals on the market?
Yes, substantially different for several reasons. Number one, and probably the most important difference is the source. Plant sourced minerals were discovered in 1920 as the remains of an ancient rain forest that was determined by the U.S. Dept. of Interior to be from the Cretaceous Period, approximately 60 million to 127 million years old. This period is characterized by the development of flowering plants and the disappearance of dinosaurs. These minerals were preserved because of a unique set of circumstances. Covering the deposit was only 20-30 feet of sandstone, enough to protect the deposit but not enough to cause excessive heat and pressure that would have altered the form of the minerals. At the bottom of the deposit is a very hard bed of clay which allowed the minerals to collect and prevented them from leaching through and simply disappearing. Selections from various parts of the deposit are used to insure a balance of the various minerals and to form the exclusive Youngevityproduct.
The minerals are extracted with pure, cool clear water to the desired concentration and then processed through a complex array of special filters to allow only the organic colloidal minerals in the final solution. There are no preservatives, flavorings or synthetic substances added.
Presently, the mine is the only one of its kind that has been discovered, and no other persons or companies have mineral rights to it. In an effort to imitate the product, there are companies who are using a similar story and making false and misleading claims. Inorganic or certain metallic mineral ingredients can even be harmful.
You probably know of other companies that make the claim that their product is endorsed by Dr Wallach..that is untrue! In this country Dr Wallach will only put his name on the Youngevitybottle! Most of the other companies are M.L.M. and they sell their product under their own various product names.
Beware of products which must resort to ''me to" or "same as" methods of marketing. For those who truly understand the complexities of the natural universe, these kinds of claims are ludicrous. When all of the sales hype is said and done, a product will survive or fail based on its own merits. Dr Wallach's Colloidal Minerals have not only survived, but flourished during their many years together. Can any other trace mineral product honestly say the same?
5. Are there any other important differences?
Yes, the Youngevityminerals have a natural negative electrical charge. This has two very important benefits. One, it greatly enhances the transport and availability of other nutrients gotten from foods and/or vitamins and other supplements. And two, it will attract toxins and heavy metals from the body and flush them out. A simple test of this may be done with a glass of ordinary tap water or some of the so called mineral waters on the market. Pour in about an ounce of DOC's minerals and it will immediately cloud up. After an hour or two, there will be a sediment of the impurities at the bottom. Done with distilled (pure) water, the minerals stay in suspension and the water remains clear.
6. How long will the mineral supply last?
That, of course, depends on the volume that we are producing, which has markedly increased. However, our projection, taking into account the increasing demand, is approximately two to three hundred years.
7. There is an audio tape being widely circulated called "Dead Doctor's Don't Lie" done by Dr. Joel Wallach. What source of minerals is he referring to?
Dr. Wallach is referring to the Youngevityminerals. There are companies either paying Dr. Wallach a royalty or illegally using this tape, and making false or misleading claims. They have edited out the portion where Dr. Wallach refers to the real minerals. The product is not watered down, or filled with worthless fillers...accept no imitations... just the one-and-only Majestic Earth product bottled by Youngevity.We are not affiliated with any other minerals companies... nor do we endorse any. Why take a chance? Accept no imitations. Demand the real thing... "Dr Wallach's Legendary Colloidal Minerals".
