Minerals & Nutrition > The Difference Between Ionic And Colloidal Minerals
By Dr. John Heinerman

Sometimes thinking of something in comparative terms rather than in a strict scientific sense enable us to obtain a much better understanding of the matter. This is especially true if something is as complex as forms of minerals.

The issue involving ionic minerals versus colloidal minerals is a hotly contested one. It is not so much which is the better of the pair as it is which of the two is the more effective for you. A simple illustration will help to give you a better ideas of what is meant by this.

Imagine, for a moment, two immigrants from the same foreign country entering the United States for the very first time. One speaks fluent English in addition to his own native language (ionic minerals) while the other individual speaks the language of his birth country (colloidal). Yet, both are equal in every other respect as far as character and attributes go.

Yet, the individual who understands English fairly well (ionic) will be able to get ahead much faster in terms of employment and economic security than the other (colloidal) who does not speak a word of English. The second individual will first have to learn the new language before he or she can realize the fulfillment of his or her own dreams and opportunities.

It is much the same with ionic and colloidal minerals. Both are equal in many respects. However, the major difference separating the two is this: one is fully assimilated into the body very quickly while the other takes longer. Ionic minerals are already in a form that the body recognizes and understands so they can be quickly put to good use without further delay. The colloidal minerals, on the other hand, must, first of all, undergo a process called reconversion within the body before they can be utilized. And then only a certain percentage is used after all with some being lost in the reconversion process.

If you had to choose between hiring one of the two foreigners from the same country with many of the same qualifications who would you be more apt to choose? Wouldn't it be the person who spoke fluent English and could work for you right away? Or would you want to spend a lot of time and energy educating the other person in English before hiring him or her?

The answer then is simple: you want to take ionic minerals into your system because they are already in a form that the body understands and can put to total use immediately. After all, why fool around with the colloidal form which takes longer to utlize and then only in an incomplete way.
