About Using Ionic and Colloidal Minerals
Dosage - Time - Organic - Safety - For Children - For Pets

How Much Should I Take?
For Ionic and Colloidal Minerals we recommend you follow the manufacturers instructions. Many minerals are very toxic in anything other than in minute trace amounts, so make sure you have a reputable brand. Most liquid minerals, if you take to much, cause diarrhoea. Children should take about 1/2 of the adult dose with variance for age and weight. For seawater, up to one third of a cup per day.

Taste: Many taste Awful, but this is reduced by adding to fruit juice or other foods or by taking tablets.

When To Take Them:
You will benefit from mineral supplements 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. A popular way is to add liquid minerals to your drinking water, this improves the flavour of the water and provides an electrolyte replacement during the day.

Can You Take To 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, minerals not used by your body are excreted in a few hours

Minerals such as aluminium, arsenic, lead and so forth in naturally occurring trace amounts are not only beneficial to the body but actually help the body to remove potentially harmful heavy metal forms of these elements. So, it is virtually impossible to overdose. Even if you were to take 10 times the recommended amount the only side effect would likely be diarrhoea for a day or so.

Have They Been Tested for Safety?
Yes. All manufacturers must test products before being put on sale. Safety as well as efficacy should be of equal concern as new products continue to hit the market.

Are All Minerals Natural and Organic?
All minerals are elements which occur naturally in nature, some are metallic and some are not. The metallic minerals are always metallic regardless of where you find them. Some minerals are called organic as they have been extracted from plant material, however a mineral is still a mineral and can never be truly classed as organic.

An all-natural product is one in which there are no synthetic or chemical additives included. Ideally mineral products are collected from nature and represent the natural balance and are not composed of formulations of refined mineral compounds.

Are They Safe For Pets?
Yes. A good measure of dosage is the same as for children. Farmers traditionally give salt licks to animals as a way of adding minerals to the diet and animals have an ability to know what is good for them and will supplement their diet by eating mineral rich soils, drinking a little seawater etc.
