Trace Minerals, Things Just Keep Getting Better
It’s been nearly 25 years now, since they published my
findings, about trace minerals, in the November 1985 Issue of Pet Age
Magazine. Since that time,
We have come to realize that a lack of micronutrients has played a
tremendous role in the development of modern day diseases. Even worse, I
have a sinking feeling that we are really just seeing, the “tip of the
It is obvious that the roots of many of the physical diseases
we are seeing today, are firmly entrenched in the nutritionally deficient
soils our foodstuffs are “grown” in. Sure, vegetables today grow large with
thick skins, bright colors and long shelf life, however, they are lacking
some simple natural ingredients, mainly, the trace minerals that our bodies
desperately need to function as they were designed to.
The “farming industry’s” business sense tells them, people buy
vegetables like they buy their cars because of their looks. People buy,
large, brightly colored produce that has no blemishes and seems to stay
“fresh” longer. So the “industry” has geared their factory farming
techniques to produce just that type of produce. It doesn’t seem to matter
to them that the product they’re selling has all the nutrients (and even the
taste) that “wax fruit” offers…zero, zilch, nada.
It also doesn’t seem to matter to them that their chemical
fertilizers, insecticides, weed killers and other “scorched earth”
techniques have stripped the soil of the desperately needed, natural
vitamins and health sustaining trace minerals. The “bottom line” is that
these ruthless methods make it easier to produce cosmetically improved food
stuffs that store longer, are safer to ship and have the shelf life (and all
of the nutrition) of a plaster clown at a thrift store.
As you admire the size of that melon or the color of those egg
plants you need to be aware that micronutrient deficiencies are causing
worldwide diseases in people and animals. These trace minerals are critical
elements that direct important bodily functions They are the very keys that
allow other vitamins, nutrients and supplements, to pass through the cell
membrane to enhance the production of energy and oxygen for the body to use
to help fight off disease.
Since my initial exploration of the possible uses of
micronutrients in the late 70’s and early 80’s, a remarkable amount of
painstaking academic research has been completed on this natural, calcium
enriched clay, montmorillanite natural, hydrothermally
trace mineral, created by the earth.
ION-MIN, a natural, premium Calcium Montmorillonite of extreme
N.A.S.A.’s Manned Space Center,
funded a study by Cal Tech Scientist, Dr. Benjamin H. Ershoff. It
seems our Astronauts were developing bone density loss and rapid onset
osteoporosis due to the long periods they spent in zero gravity on extended
space flights. Led by Dr. Ershoff, N.A.S.A.’s scientists conducted
extensive studies on calcium related compounds including the
ION-MIN compound (that is the heart of NUTRAMIN). These comprehensive
tests included studies of animals who were experiencing calcium reduction
similar to space conditions.
Their studies proved that consuming NUTRAMIN actually
increased bone density and muscle tissue; whereas those that were given a
typical calcium supplement showed no improvement of the bone loss! NUTRAMIN
was shown to fuel the body to stimulate healthy bone mass retention and
tissue strength. NUTRAMIN has been used daily by all of NASA's Astronauts
During this time, other scientific investigations were being
done by Dr. Paul A. LaChance. Administering this clay to male rats, hamsters
mice, miniature pigs, kangaroos and other mammals, over a period of time,
also proved positively that normalization and re-calcification of bone
density did occur, only when NUTRAMIN was administered.
Study after study, it has been documented and proven that NUTRAMIN is 100%
effective! Why not apply this same clay, to millions of people and animals
that suffer from many types of bone density loss or an inability to absorb
other forms of calcium? This clay has high levels of calcium in a form that
is “chelated” which allows the body to
absorb only the trace minerals and amounts that it actually needs.
In my profession the use of a calcium supplements in a large
breed puppy is often thought to be dangerous. Some Animal Health
Professionals believe that excess calcium may actually create excess bone
growth with a bone malady being the end result. This will not happen with
this product as the chelated calcium will only be absorbed and used, if the
puppy’s bone growth dictates it.
Bone loss is very common with chronic kidney disease in people
and animals. The kidney disease often causes the retention of phosphorus and
as the body tries to maintain a 1 to1 or 1 to 2 ratio between calcium and
phosphorus, the body automatically removes the calcium from the bones and
ligaments. The high level of calcium contained in this NUTRAMIN will help
stop this. Research facilities in Asia, have scientifically proven that this
clay also causes elevated blood urea to be concentrated out of the blood and
into the intestines which allows it to be excreted much quicker.
Dr. Howard E. Lind, has done a large number of successful
studies showing the anti bacterial effects of NUTRAMIN plus it’s ability to
neutralize toxins. These results are very important in people and animals
that are sensitive to certain antibiotics. At the same time, this remarkable
product will help neutralize toxins that may occur in our foods or the foods
that we feed our animals. This is an important fact considering the large
number of pet food and human food stuff recalls that seem to be increasing
Other health benefits that NUTRAMIN offers include; relief
from Acid Reflux and/or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, due to the high
level of chelated calcium and the external use of this clay, as a paste, has
a wonderful healing effect while adding micronutrients back into the outer
layer of skin referred to as keratin.
Many world famous healers have use this product internally and
externally for thousands of years.
I have been in practice as a Veterinarian and animal health
researcher for over 43 years of my life and I am totally sincere in my
recommendation for this amazing trace mineral clay, NUTRAMIN. I have seen it
in action first hand and have even used it personally.
We really do not know the extent of diseases that are caused by
micronutrient deficiencies. My suggestion is that you try NUTRAMIN for your
animal and see the difference for yourself.
