Where Do Microbiotic Minerals Originate?
Microbiotic minerals have been made by microbes in the soil in
an organic minerals form, being formed naturally and organically during various
stages of diagenesis. Microbiotic minerals are formed by microbes
digesting and processing carbonaceous matter in the soil, originating mostly
from plants and plant residues, over a period of thousands and thousands of
Humate deposits containing organic mineral complexes can be
found in any area of the world. Large deposits are located in Canada, the
Midwest, Texas, New Mexico, Utah and Idaho. The method of extraction from
these various deposits is the key difference in the product. Here is a
summary of the methods used:
- Humates extracted with potassium hydroxide. Many of
the agricultural organic mineral solutions are extracted and sold from this
process as well as some in the food supplement industry. These contain
large amounts of potassium with negative extraneous compounds.
- Humates extracted with strong acid solutions. Some of
these contain high amounts of sulfur and harmful extraneous compounds.
- Humates extracted with water (hot and cold). These
extractions contain high amounts of negative water-soluble compounds (many
of which are potentially toxic) and have a very unpleasant and harsh
taste. A good rule of thumb in organic mineral extractions is the
stronger or more unpleasant the taste, the more inferior the extraction
method and the more potentially harmful is the product.
- Humates extracted with a proprietary water extraction
process developed by H. Raul Fernandez, PD, Analytical Chemist of HealthTech
International, Inc. This extraction targets the organic mineral
complex while excluding the potentially harmful water-soluble
compounds. This complex is the only organic mineral solution that has
been taken to a concentrated powder and back again to a solution, while
preserving, intact, all of the organic characteristics. This is the
safest organic mineral supplement available from all known sources, matching
the exact complexes found in foods grown in 100% fertile organic soils.
