Aren't some of these minerals like chromium very toxic?
True, the human body is not designed to absorb or assimilate and use metallic minerals.
However Dr. Frederick S. Macy, Dr. Patrick Flanagan, and chemist David Graham say colloidal minerals are non-toxic because of their plant or vegetable source and electrical charge. In fact, an article in Readers Digest on one of Dr. Macy’s lectures about colloidal minerals, said in part, “In colloidal form iodine, for example, is one of the elements essential for the well-being of human cells. Yet if you should drink as much as two or three grains of free iodine, it would kill you. Dr. Macy, when explaining this, held up an eight ounce cup full of colloidal iodine. ‘There,’ he said, ‘is the equivalent of 740 grains of free iodine - enough to kill 300 men.’ And he drank it. In that form, iodine is not only harmless, but beneficial. The same is true of arsenic and other deadly poisons.”
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.
How Much Should I Take?
We suggest you take one capful for every 50 kilos of body weight per day. The bottle cap is made to hold exactly one ounce. Those rebuilding their body to deal with a health challenge often double this. Children should take 1/2 teaspoon per 10 kilos of body weight twice daily.
When Do I Take It?"
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.
Can You Take Too Much?
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.
Have They Been Tested For Safety?
Yes. The T.J. Clark Colloidal Mineral formula was tested in Germany by Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, a Nobel Prize nominee in biophysics. His test revealed that the product was not only completely non-toxic but actually increased the life (electrical) energy output of cells beyond what had previously been established as optimum. Dr. Popp congratulated us on the excellence of our product. In addition, T.J. Clark Colloidal Mineral products have been effectively used by millions of people for over 78 years. During our entire history, there have been countless reports of positive benefits and never a reported significant adverse reaction. Tom Clark, the current CEO of TJ Clark & Company, has personally used our Colloidal Mineral product regularly for 56 years. Throughout our history, thousands of people have learned to trust the TJ Clark products, absolutely.
With three generations behind them, no other mineral company can document 75 years of success stories and not a single case of toxicity.
"Not even aspirin can say that," says Tom.
However, he will be the first to side with other experts that warn that if you are interested in taking mineral supplements, be sure to understand the quality of the product. Safety as well as efficacy should be of equal concern as new products continue to hit the market.
Are T J Clark Colloidal Minerals different?
Yes! Substantially different for several reasons. The most important difference is the extraction method used. We take raw material from different locations, then use a cold water, heap leaching process to mimic the natural process that result in spring water. Other companies use standard industrial vat based extraction methods, some even use high temperature extractions. This increase yield, and profits, but we feel our cold water extraction is better.
Are The Minerals Natural & Organic?
All minerals are elements, some are metallic and some aren’t. The metallic minerals are always metallic regardless of where you find them.
This may also help you understand the incredulity experienced by the many legitimate scientists who review some of the silly statements and claims that are been made.
An all-natural product is one in which there are no synthetic or chemical additives included. The TJ Clark Company minerals are 100% natural as it is mined. We could easily add artificial colours and stabilisers to create a uniform appearance and mask the bitter taste but this would be a totally different untested product. For this reason, Nature's Formula will vary slightly from batch to batch.
Do the Products Have to be Refrigerated After Opening?
This is best, though not absolutely necessary. Some people find the taste is improved by keeping them cold.
Are They Safe To Give to Pets?
Yes. A good measure of dosage is the same as for children; give 1/2 teaspoon per 20 pounds of the animal's body weight.
