mineral angstrom sized particles in an aqueous solution
Angstrom Minerals are the smallest form of liquid minerals today. Some products claim to be as small as 10 angstroms. This is small. Our Angstrom minerals are one angstrom. The smallest, most absorbable minerals on Earth!
Why does size matter? Because the smaller the mineral, the less energy it takes to digest or absorb it. In short "More Mineral For Your Money"!! You pay a lot less for the mineral that your body is using. Other minerals are going down the drain in the bathroom.
Many people are familiar with the latest health buzz words like nanometer. It sounds so small. It is smaller than the ever popular term colloidal minerals. Angstrom Minerals are smaller than Nano Minerals. How much smaller is angstrom? It takes 10 angstroms to equal one nanometer. So it is one tenth the size of a nanometer. You do not have to use as much Angstrom Minerals to get the same effect as other minerals because Angstrom Minerals are 99.9% absorbable.
You may not have heard of an angstrom because it was discovered a long time before a nanometer and colloidal minerals. Angstrom is a measurement that was named after Swedish physicist Anders Angstrom (1814-1874). An angstrom is a unit of measurement that equals one ten-billionth of a meter, or 1/10,000,000,000 of 3.28 feet. Angstrom is an extremely small unit used to measure the wave length of light. Light waves have wave lengths from about 4,000 ~ 7,000 angstroms. It is used to measure small distances, such as the diameter of an atom, or the thickness of a soap film. One angstrom equals one hundred millionth of a centimeter, OR 1/254,000,000 of an inch (0.0000001mm). It takes 10,000 angstroms to equal one micron. One human hair is about 50 microns wide. Since the wavelength of light is an angstrom in size, you should not see any highlighted particles in the medium.
Colloidal minerals: KAHLoyd is measured on average 1/25,400,000 of an inch. One nanometer measures a billionth of a meter. The dimension of a typical colloid particle measures between a few nanometers and a few thousand nanometers. A colloid has been found to be a micron or bigger in size. Colloids are not stable and very irregular in size ~ therefore it is difficult to control them. Colloidal Minerals must pass through the digestive tract first. They may not be digested by those with digestion problems.
Recognition of the importance of the minerals required for perfect health is so new, that few textbooks contain much about it. It is now believed that at least 24 elements are essential to living matter (i.e. deficiency symptoms occur when these elements are lacking which are then resolved when proper balance is achieved). Minerals are essential to physical and mental health. They are a basic part of all cells, particularly blood, nerve, muscle, bones, teeth, and soft tissue. Some are essential for functional support such as the electrolyte minerals (sodium, potassium, and chloride), that help regulate the fluid and acid-base balance of our bodies, while other minerals are part of enzymes that catalyze biochemical reactions, aid energy production, metabolism, nerve transmission, muscle contraction, and cell permeability. Carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals are the building blocks of our diet and provide the fuel, or source of energy, to maintain life and promote cell and tissue growth and other biochemical support. Minerals contain no calories or energy in them but assist the body in energy production.
Minerals (or elements), come from the Earth, and eventually return to the Earth, and can most simply be defined as chemical molecules that cannot be reduced to simpler substances. They exist in their inorganic state in the Earth, and in their organic state as the basic constituent of all living matter. The main elements essential to health, each of which makes up more than .01 percent of total body weight, are termed macro-minerals (calcium, phosphorus, chlorine, potassium, sulfur, sodium, magnesium and silicon). The next group of elements, termed micro-minerals or trace minerals, each of which constitute less than .01 percent of total body weight, though found only in minute amounts, are also essential to health (iron, copper, zinc, iodine, cobalt, bromide, boron, manganese, selenium, fluorine, molybdenum, vanadium, arsenic and chromium). Other elements contained in the body include some of the toxic metals (lead, aluminum, cadmium, and mercury).
Angstrom Minerals are Liquid Ionic Minerals. The nature of minerals in their most elemental (basic) state is that of atoms. Only in this state can they carry an electrical charge, positive or negative. The body can only take up these elements if they carry an electrical charge. Angstrom minerals are pure minerals in water with loose bonds to each other. Therefore they are easily used by the body and are liquid ionic minerals. When minerals do not have an electrical charge they are locked-up and unusable (like calcium carbonate because the calcium is locked up with carbon).
The human body is made up of minerals and they are angstrom in size and water soluble. Our minerals are the purest minerals available on the marker (up to 99.9999% pure) and the purest water. The process to make them is a trade secret. The process duplicates nature's method of turning minerals from the Earth into a form usable by man. When a plant processes minerals from the Earth, the minerals end up in the crystalline form necessary in order to be usable and absorbable by the body. Since we simulate the digestive system the body will absorb them because it sees them as predigested and organic. The minerals are absorbed in the mouth and upper digestive tract. The reason the absorption is so successful is because the particle size is angstrom in size, 1/250,000,000 of an inch. The body uses what it needs and will discard the excess.
We tested all the mineral supplements, including minerals labeled as colloidal and found they were all micron or bigger in size. They were not soluble crystalline ionic therefore they would be millions of times too large for proper cell osmosis. The digestive tract will allow a particle as big as a micron to enter the blood stream. Once these particles have entered your blood stream, the only way they can get out of your blood stream is to cell assimilate through osmosis. Because micron size particles are too large to assimilate through a cell, they stay in your blood stream and can be deposited in different locations, which can cause a variety of heavy-metal diseases. When a person consumes water-soluble minerals (Angstrom Minerals) they will absorb, travel everywhere in the body, and if the body does not need them the body will discharge them with no accumulative effect.
The "ates": Carbonate ~ Citrate ~ Picolinate ~ Gluconate ~ Echolocate, etc., are all complex inorganic compounds. Most people believe they are getting calcium when taking Calcium Carbonate. In fact, they aren't since the body doesn't have the ability to break this complex down. Calcium Carbonate is also known as CHALK! Calcium loss of flexibility in the arteries. It can also increase your need for bypass surgeries.
Growing plants help break down the soils and only use particle sizes near an angstrom for osmosis and cell growth. Soils can be depleted of usable minerals because the particles are too large. Our soils have been used and used and no one has ever replaced the lost minerals that are correct in size.
In ancient times people would pray for the yearly flood that would replenish their soils. The early pioneers would move farther west every 12 years, because it was believed that after 12 years the soils were depleted. Yet 200 years later we are attempting to grow crops and live off of the same soils. To test the particle size of your current mineral supplement, simply shine a hand held laser-pointer through the fluid. If it is solid, dissolve it into water and then test it after it dissolves.

This is basic chemistry to help dispel myths about product size.
This picture shows a comparison of size. It is not an exact ratio, but an illustration of size relativity.
Angstrom Mineral = 254,000,000th of an inch ~ A Human Cell = 1,000th of an inch
Sizes are not exact but illustrate how minerals differ in size
Angstrom Minerals are the Smallest
To understand fully the benefit of Angstrom Minerals, you must understand how daily allowance was calculated. A long time ago when the FDA decided to make the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamins and minerals they did not have Angstrom Minerals to test. They used tablets and possibly capsules. Now tablets with their minimal surface area are hard to digest. At times, you may even see a tablet come out in the toilet. Smash a mineral together tightly and you form a ROCK!
Capsules are much better than tablets. The mineral inside is finer and has more surface area for the stomach acid to work on. However, it still depends on the compound of the mineral inside.
So the FDA tested these minerals and calculated the content that actually got into the blood stream. You can absorb about 5% to 7% of these kinds of minerals. So to get 35 mg of mineral into your body, you have to take 500 mg. That is at the best absorption rate of 7%. Most of us have poor digestion so the absorption rate is much less.
So if you needed 35 mg of some regular mineral and you absorbed 7% you took a 500 mg capsule or tablet. Angstrom Minerals are pure minerals not compounds. Since Angstrom Minerals, are 99.9% absorbable or usable mineral, you would only need to take enough to equal 35 mg to meet the RDA.
So you see with Angstrom Minerals, you get the mineral you need without all of the filler. Thus it cost you less for your higher quality mineral.
Parts per million (ppm) to Milligrams (mg) (ml/liter = ppm)
= ½ mg
= 1 Teaspoon
= 5 ml
If the product is listed at 1,500 ppm this would be the equation:
1,500 divided by 100 = 15
15 multiplied by .5 = 7.5 mg per teaspoon
