NOT JUST A LOW SODIUM VERSION OF OUR IONIC LIQUID MINERALS
This new master mineral liquid is, despite the name, not just a low sodium version of our Ionic Liquid Minerals. This is a Magnesium led multi-mineral supplement whereas the Ionic Liquid Minerals is a Sodium led multi-mineral. Since the withdrawal of Mag Sea Ionics there has been a gap in our range. This fills the gap.... and some!
From the next run of Mag Sea Pure (magnesium chloride oil) manufacturing, that product will be suitable for topical application only. Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium will be the only oral magnesium solution from RN.
This was also introduced to fill a role in the new Re-Mineralisation Programme, where the sodium is obtained via Celtic Ocean Sea Salt. Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium provides 250mg of Magnesium from 40 drops (2.5ml) and a considerably higher trace mineral content than any other product in our range.
Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium
The most concentrated liquid trace element in the world. Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium originates from the isolated waters of the north arm of the Great Salt Lake, Utah, USA. The Great Salt Lake itself covers some 6,000 square kilometres and represents a terminal collection of the rivers and streams. This drainage system covers an area of 90,000 square kilometres of the Rocky Mountains. The rocks and soils that comprise the drainage basin represent all the major lithologies - igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary - and cover the entire time span of the Geological Record - from Pre Cambrian to Recent. Consequently the waters of the Great Salt Lake contain within them - rather like the Sea itself - in a dissolved ionic form, all the elements present in the Periodic Table.
To obtain Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium the brine of the Great Salt Lake is concentrated further in evaporation ponds to dramatically increase the concentration of dissolved elements. As a result of exposure to the natural elements of the sun, wind, rain and frost, 98% of the water originally placed into the ponds is evaporated and 99.5% of the Sodium Chloride is removed via natural precipitation from what becomes a super saturated solution.
Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium, then, is a highly saturated, ionic, brine solution. It is a homogenous 'true solution' with all particles in their dissolved ionic state having radii between 27 (Be2+) and 220 (I-) picometers. It contains 78, and possibly more, naturally occurring elements in a saline and charge balanced form.
Analytical methods include: Ion Chromatography, Cold Vapour Atomic Absorption, Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption, Atomic Absorption, Titration, Induced Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry, Induced Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometer, Flame Photometer, and Specific Ion Electrodes.
Seasonal variation contributes somewhat to the broadness of the ranges given, but more significant than this is the variation experienced between laboratories. The later variation is due to interferences caused by the complexity of the brine solution and also differences in methodology of the analytical protocol. Therefore, we are open to results of future analytical work and retain the right to change and refine this document without notice. The information presented has been reviewed and approved by a team of professors from Weber State University, Utah, USA.
The ponds are tested regularly for a broad spectrum of contaminants, including tests during every major harvest period. Contaminant tests include organic and petroleum chemicals, agricultural chemicals and pesticides, and heavy metals. Heavy metals testing also provides some data on additional trace elements.
Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium offers in 30 drops the mineral content equivalent of one third of a cup of sea water with 99.5% of the sodium removed.
Indications for use
Supplementary Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium offers the versatility of an electrolyte replacement drink, while nourishing the body with a complete blend of essential minerals. The body is constantly working to stay in a state of balance. This product helps you take a step in that direction. provided sufficient unrefined salt, such as Celtic Ocean Sea Salt
is used. Ionic Liquid Minerals - Low Sodium also provides the appropriate physiological balance of trace minerals that your body needs.
Potassium, sodium and chloride are all considered electrolytes. They function in the maintenance and distribution of water within the body. In addition, they serve the role of controlling acid-base balance, heart contractility, kidney and adrenal function, and vital neuromuscular activity.
As a guide, a daily supplement per person would be one drop per 2.7 kilograms (6 pounds) of body weight per day (see Ingredients/Directions tab above for more detailed usage advice). Ideally this would be best taken in three equal amounts during the day i.e. before breakfast, lunch and evening meal. However, twice a day would suffice and having a convenient, handy bottle of 28ml would allow 5 drops to be taken 5 to 6 times a day with an ever present glass of water. It would be appropriate to err on the side of caution for someone with M.E. type symptoms, as you can provide too much too soon; 1 or 2 drops two to three times a day would be appropriate to begin with: gradually increasing the number of drops as the person concerned feels is appropriate.
It is best taken either as a few drops (4 or 5) taken regularly during the day with a glass of water or in a larger amount with a fruit juice or herbal tea to taste.
Why you need ionic minerals
Minerals, the Universe, and You
What are minerals anyway? Minerals are nothing more than elements—the very same elements that grace the periodic table inside a high school chemistry text book like chromium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and so on. They are the elements that comprise the entire universe, this earth, and everything on it, including you.
Your body is truly a masterpiece formed from these same elements. As such, it is important to constantly replenish your body with the elements it expends on a daily basis.
Chemical and electrical processes are occurring within your body at every moment. These processes can only function correctly if the proper balance of minerals is continually being supplied to your system. Iron for your blood, sulfur for your muscles, calcium for your bones, and an aggregation of many other elements in balanced trace amounts help to ensure the proper function of your body.
What Are Ions?
An ion is a mineral or element that has a positive or negative charge. On the molecular level, that means the element has either too many or too few electrons. This unstable ionic state allows the element to bond readily with water, making it possible for the body to absorb it. In this state, an element has specific positive or negative electrical signatures that cause a dynamic equilibrium to take place. The body can then facilitate changes to move nutrients to the areas that need them.
What Are Trace Minerals?
You may collect silver coins, wear a platinum ring, or have a gold filling. You’ve likely sipped tea poured from a copper kettle, eaten a cookie from a fancy tin container, or traveled on an airplane made of titanium. But did you know that these elements and many others—in very small, balanced trace amounts—are critical to your health? Although trace minerals are no longer as plentiful in the foods you eat, they exist plentifully in their proper proportions in the mineral-rich waters of the earth’s oceans and seas.
The Stripping of Mother Earth
Traditionally, eating fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables grown in nutrient-rich soil has been the primary supply for a full spectrum of ionic minerals.
Unfortunately in today’s world, naturally occurring, nutrient-rich soil is becoming increasingly rare. Eons of vegetation growth and aggressive modern farming techniques have brought many of the earth’s minerals to the surface where they have been washed away.
Synthesized fertilizers are routinely applied to farms and fields where minerals have been depleted. But man-made fertilizers provide only enough mineral substance to support basic plant life. Numerous trace minerals essential to human life don’t get replenished.
Where Have All the Minerals Gone?
Many of the trace elements once abundant in soil have been washed into the oceans. In the oceans they are found in their proper proportions—the same basic proportions that are found in healthy human bodies.
In a few surviving inland seas such as the Great Salt Lake of western North America, these essential elements exist in highly concentrated, salubrious proportions. This healthy, intricately balanced proportion of minerals and trace elements found in sea water is beneficial to the human body.
Today, these life-sustaining sea waters contain all of the minerals and elements necessary to support human life. Most importantly, these minerals and elements are ionic and in perfect balance—prime for being absorbed into the cells of your body.
The Importance of Ionic Minerals
Every second of every day your body relies on ionic minerals and trace minerals to conduct and generate billions of tiny electrical impulses. Without these impulses, not a single muscle, including your heart, would be able to function. Your brain would not function and the cells would not be able to use osmosis to balance your water pressure and absorb nutrients. To ensure you are getting the ionic minerals and electrolytes your body needs, only choose ionic mineral supplements or supplements that contain ionic minerals. Perhaps most important, full mineral supplementation is required to mitigate the loss of minerals brought about by ageing, as the ageing process causes mineral depletion in the body.
A Disturbing Trend: Mineral Imbalance
Because your body requires nearly two thirds of all the elements currently known to man in order to maintain health, keeping these minerals in balance is a complex, yet incredibly vital task. The events of everyday living demand a continual ingestion of minerals.
There are 92 known elements, 22 hypothesized others, and hundreds of isotopic variations. It’s no wonder that scientists are only now beginning to discover the effects and interrelationships of minerals in our human systems, such as how minerals help maintain a healthy balance, and what adverse effects are created by a mineral imbalance.
The Key Role of Absorption
The absorption of minerals primarily takes place within the small intestines. As food matter passes through the intestines, minerals transfer into the blood stream through the walls of the intestines by way of the villi. This can only happen if the minerals are in an ionic form. Although stomach acid helps ionize the minerals in foods, a mineral supplement should contain already naturally ionized minerals to be fully absorbed.
"Trace minerals do not exist by themselves but in relationship to one another. Too much of one trace element can lead to imbalances in others...Most trace elements need to be in ionic form to be well absorbed in the intestine.” —Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D.
The Secret of Life in a Dead Inland Sea
Western North America’s Great Salt Lake is the world’s oldest inland sea. A remnant of the last great Ice Age, the Great Salt Lake in Utah has been collecting and concentrating the minerals and trace elements of the surrounding Rocky Mountains for tens of thousands of years. The result is nutrient rich waters which contain over 72 ionic minerals and trace elements that are eight to ten times more concentrated than regular seawater—in precisely the same proportion as healthy human fluids. It is from this source that the elements and trace minerals go into this product.
