Microbiotic Mineral Content
The Microbiotic mineral complex contains over 70 trace elements. These elements are complexed by microbes from the contents of formerly living cells, made up primarily of plant matter. The complex these microbes form is a strong natural electrolyte and is also rich in phyto chemicals, phyto nutrients, and other micro-nutrients, contributing a wide assortment of positive nutritional building blocks. The amount of separate elements is only a trace (most under 1 part per million). The elements in the complex which are over 1 part per million are in amounts all less than 1 gram per liter. Though all of these amounts seem very small, it must be remembered that they are organically chelated within a molecular structure that is totally absorbed in digestion. In addition, these are balanced complexes from living cells and the benefits they provide to those cells is remarkable. Our cells benefit from these same remarkable complexes. It must be emphasized too, that these complexes would be in foods grown in fertile bio-active soils. These soils are no longer available from depleted lands where western agricultural practices have been used.
One of the trace elements in the complex is aluminum. Many have asked if this was safe. If a person consumed 1 ounce of the Microbiotic solution per day, it would amount to less than 3 mg. of aluminum. One seventh of the earth's crust is composed of aluminum. It is therefore an element that we are in constant contact with. All vegetables, grains, and fruits contain aluminum in amounts ranging from 10 to 200 parts per million. Beans and other legumes, contain the highest amounts of aluminum found in foods at 1,640 ppm. A 1 ounce serving of green vegetables contains approximately 6 mg of aluminum. A 1 ounce serving of beans contains over 46 mg of aluminum.
Aluminum has been found to activate enzymes that remove hydrogen from compounds that can then be oxidized. Its presence was found to increase the survival rate of newborn infants. Aluminum, in trace amounts, as we would expect from a natural substance common in our foods, has a positive nutritional function.
The key again is to remember that the Microbiotic complex is formed within living cells (microbes) during their life function. The complexes they form were previous ingredients of living cells (mostly plant matter). These complexes play a prominent role in all life functions on planet Earth. The elements contained in this organic complex form are both safe and beneficial.
