What is Mother Earth Minerals?
Mother Earth Minerals has been family-owned and operated since the late 1990s when we started producing high-quality absorbable mineral supplements that have brought health and wellness to thousands of individuals ever since.
How many milligrams am I getting with the individual Mother Earth Minerals?
It varies between each product, but what you need to realize is that fewer milligrams are needed with our liquid minerals because absorption is much more efficient and complete than in other forms. The amount of milligrams ABSORBED is much more important than how many milligrams are consumed.
Can I mix all the Mother Earth Minerals I need together before taking?
For the individual minerals, we do not recommend combining them. They are designed to be taken sublingually (held under the tongue) before being swallowed and to wait 60 seconds before taking another. We electromagnetically enhance the individual minerals to increase their effectiveness and combining them may ruin that added benefit. While it is possible (and safe) to combine them, we do not recommend it for maximum effectiveness and efficiency.
According to the Book, Wellness Secrets for Life, what is considered a ‘dropperful’?
A single firm pinch of the eyedropper provided in the mineral bottle picks up approximately 1 ml. of mineral and is considered a ‘dropperful’ even though the eyedropper may only be ½ full.
Why Is absorption so important?
You cannot benefit from minerals unless you can absorb them. The ability of a mineral to be utilized by the body is primarily a matter of size and form. If you get the particle size of the mineral small enough, you not only get the mineral into the body (absorption), but you also get the mineral into the cell (cell assimilation), which is the key to fully utilizing the benefits of mineral nutrients. This can only happen if the minerals are ionic and charged. Even in many solid foods, mineral elements are not free but firmly bound in the “food matrix” Although stomach acid helps ionize the minerals in foods, a mineral supplement should contain already naturally ionized minerals to be fully absorbed and used by the body.
What are water-soluble Ionic liquid minerals?
Water-soluble minerals are unique from mineral supplements that utilize a new proprietary scientific technology that transforms insoluble minerals (metals) into angstrom-sized water-soluble ionic particles. These liquid ionic minerals are in a form that the body can selectively absorb and utilize.
What is the difference between colloidal minerals and Mother Earth Minerals?
The principal difference is the particle size and form of the mineral. Colloidal essentially refers to a 'suspended' particle mixed with water, not bonded to the hydrogen and oxygen molecule itself. Typically, colloidal suspensions measure in size between 1 to 5 microns. Colloidal mineral supplements are essentially small metallic particles floating in the water.
What does Ionic really mean?
Plants change the minerals in the soil into an ionic/water-soluble form that makes them useable by the human body. Mineral Ions are angstrom-sized (1/10 000th of a micron) and near 100% bioavailable, which means the body only uses what it needs and the remainder leaves the body naturally, lowering the risk of accumulation. Ionic: This comes from the word ion, which is a single atom or a group of atoms that carries an electrical charge, which is either positive or negative. The positive ions are called “cations” and the negative ions are called “anions”. Anions: Negatively charged atoms, radicals, or groups of atoms that travel to the anode or positive pole during electrolysis. Eg Na+ (sodium)
How much of each mineral should I take?
Whatever you feel your body needs. Some people feel they need more, others less. Calcium and Magnesium are needed daily by every human being to initiate the complex series of chemical reactions that create energy in the individual cells, therefore, it may be a smart idea to take a minimum of two droppers of each mineral daily. Silver exhibits broad-based antiviral and antibiotic tendencies, so many people give their immune systems a boost by daily silver consumption. Again, all angstrom-sized minerals are totally water-soluble and therefore do not tend to accumulate in tissue cells, so overdosing is typically not a problem.
How long do I continue to take minerals?
If a disease condition is being treated by your health practitioner, you should follow his/her advice, even as to vitamin and/or mineral supplementation. Keep in mind that just as water needs to be replenished on a daily basis, so do minerals. Our bodies are composed of 75% water and 25% minerals – many chronic conditions are caused by cellular dehydration and mineral imbalances. There is no substitute for drinking pure water (sorry, coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks do not hydrate the cells like water), and there is no substitute for minerals on the cellular level. We do not replenish the oil in the crankcase of our vehicles for 3-6 months, then stop, then why should we desire to stop the ‘preventive maintenance’ of our most valuable asset – our bodies, after just a few short months?
Can I give minerals to my pets?
Absolutely. The anti-parasite formula is a good idea for cats and dogs to help keep your home and yard free of harmful uninvited parasite larvae that have been known to eventually invade human hosts as well. All mammalian life needs minerals to function optimally. Many pet owners report great results (increased gloss in fur and hair) by adding a dropper of each mineral to the pet’s water tray every 5 days. Mineral supplementation is a MUST for owners of show animals.
I get plenty of vitamins, why do I need minerals also?
The vitamins you get from foods can ONLY be utilized by the body if minerals are present, in the correct ratios, as nature intended. Without minerals, vitamins are useless. It's like pouring flour into a pan and expecting it to turn into a cake...it simply will not happen unless you provide the other ingredients that cause the necessary metabolic responses. So not only are we mineral deficient, but we are vitamin deficient also because our bodies can't utilize vitamins sufficiently without ionic minerals. Your body has little chance of maintaining good health if it is consistently deprived of the tools it needs to function properly.
What is the challenge with pill/capsule mineral supplements?
The challenge with most traditional pill and capsule supplements is their complex state. They have usually also been processed with intense pressure, heat, paraffin coatings, and fillers during the manufacturing process. Pills and capsules require significant digestion before any type of effective absorption can take place. Colloidal minerals provide only marginal improvement. Colloidal products are simply a suspension of small metallic "filings" in water. Due to these properties, these supplements enter the body in “complex" forms making it harder for the body to break down and assimilate. The dominant factor is that the mineral must be freed from whatever matrix or compound it is contained within so it can be recognized and absorbed up by the body. The body requires minerals in an ionic state for effective utilization.
How soon can I expect to see results from the products?
People usually see noticeable differences in energy, sleep, mental concentration, and general well-being in just a matter of days or weeks. More serious illnesses may take longer for significant results to be realized. Please remember that serious nutritional imbalance is usually the result of years and years of nutritional deficiency, so you must be realistic in your expectations. Correcting mineral deficiency problems that were 20 or 30 years in the making may take some effort. But what is the alternative? Many people find that prescriptions, with all their numerous side effects, are not the quick fix “cure” they thought they would be, and feel that synthetic treatments do nothing to correct the underlying problem. Addressing nutritional deficiency is an ongoing process of feeding your body consistently and conscientiously. We think it's worth the small effort it takes to give your body nutrition that goes to work on a cellular level where many disease states start.
Do the minerals have to be refrigerated?
It is not necessary, in normal use, to refrigerate Mother Earth Minerals once they have been opened.
What else can I do to improve my health?
This is a complex issue beyond the scope of a simple answer. We believe that everyone is unique. We each have our own metabolic type and nutritional requirements. Simply, however, it is wise to practice increasing your consumption of fruits and vegetables. Whenever possible, consume organically grown produce. Pesticides and herbicides interfere with the plant's ability to absorb nutrients from the soil. Also, it is always a good idea to follow these basic guidelines: Drink at least 8 glasses of pure clean water.
Why do we need mineral supplements?
Minerals are essential for good health. The body utilizes and requires over 80 minerals for completely balanced health. Every living cell depends on minerals for proper structure, function, and electrical conductivity. Minerals are needed for the formation of blood, bones, and the proper composition of body fluids, healthy nerve function, and proper operation of the cardiovascular system, etc. Almost all enzyme reactions in the body require minerals. Dr. Linus Pauling believed that without minerals, even vitamins are useless!
What recommendations do you have for pregnant and lactating mothers?
All Mother Earth Minerals nutritional products are not only safe for pregnant and lactating mothers but are highly recommended. Keep in mind, pure minerals and alkalizing foods help individual cells better utilize oxygen and help the placenta nourish the developing fetus. Mother’s milk is a concentration of the best nutrition available in the mother’s body, so the more mineral balanced the mother’s body, the higher quality the nutritional content of the milk. The manufacturer of the Aqua Chi recommends using the machine on pregnant mothers only under the direction of the attending physician. The Photon Sound Beam is primarily an appliance that provides oxygenation to the individual cells, so using it should not be harmful to the fetus, or to a lactating mother. Any individual questions and/or concerns should be directed to a qualified health care practitioner.
Do the minerals have any negative interactions with any prescription medicines?
Typically, no – but each individual is different. For instance, one person may love walnuts, while the next may be highly allergic to them. Why should the FDA ban walnuts or require warning labels on them because they may be ‘deadly’ to a small number of people? Keep in mind that like oxygen and water, the human body rarely if ever reacts negatively to pure mineral nutrients that it needs to survive and maintain good health. Prescription medicines, on the other hand, are typically inorganic (unnaturally occurring) chemicals that have been manufactured in a laboratory, and often produce undesirable “side effects” not the least of which are potentially deadly interactions with other incompatible chemical combinations (other prescribed ‘medications’). Again, the minerals are not chemicals and therefore are extremely hypo-allergenic to the vast majority of people.
Is it possible to take too much of the minerals? Can they make you sick?
No, you cannot take too much of the minerals and they by themselves rarely make anyone ‘sick’. Our minerals are angstrom-sized particles and are 100% water-soluble. This means that the minerals cannot cause toxic accumulations in the body tissues, and all excess minerals are discharged naturally through the urea and feces. However, when pure nutrition is introduced to the body, often the body begins to ‘dump’ toxic substances and can cause mild to severe flu-like symptoms (i.e. nausea, diarrhea, low-grade fever, etc). Keep in mind that if this occurs, it is typically a very good sign that your body is responding and cleansing itself of harmful toxins. It is the release of the TOXINS that may make you ill, not the minerals themselves. Like pure air and water, purely natural minerals are extremely hypo-allergenic and are essential to achieving and maintaining good health and vitality.
Can't I get all the nutrients I need if I eat healthy?
Probably not; our soils are in poor condition. Because of years of overuse, the soils used to grow our fruits and vegetables, and feed our livestock have been depleted of their natural resources. Plants do manufacture vitamins, but they cannot manufacture minerals; they must uptake them from the soil they're grown in. Pesticides and harmful chemicals kill the microbes in the soil that are necessary for plants to convert inorganics (metallic minerals) to water-soluble ionic and therefore usable substances. Without this conversion, plants are unable to take up minerals into their root system and as a result, they become mineral deficient...mineral deficient foods create mineral deficient people.
The Mother Earth Minerals 8oz bottles are plastic. Do plastic bottles leech chemicals into the product?
While this is certainly true with certain kinds of plastic bottles, for example, cheap milk bottles, we specifically chose Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET #1) for our Minerals. This plastic is a strong, lightweight plastic resin and form of polyester that closely resembles glass in clarity and functionality and takes colorants well. PET is commonly used in food packaging due to its strong barrier properties against water vapor, dilute acids, gases, oils, and alcohols. PET is also shatter-resistant, slightly flexible and easy to recycle, and does NOT leach petrochemicals into the product stored within it.
There is conflicting information out there about the use of mother earth minerals angstrom minerals as a measurement. Do you just use the word angstrom as a way to convince people that the mineral particles are extremely small?
Most definitely not. Dr. Ott was one of the pioneering forces behind angstrom minerals, and the science behind it is one of our foundational supports of the company.

What is the benefit of mother earth minerals magnesium?
Mother Earth Mineral magnesium is extremely essential. It may promote energy and protein production, metabolism, proper muscle function (critical for heart health), supports a healthy immune system, serotonin production, and the nervous system
What is the usage of Mother Earth Minerals?
Minerals are the often forgotten essential elements for good health. People think of minerals in terms of strong teeth and bones, but minerals are far more important than that. Every living cell depends on minerals for proper function, structure, and electrical conductivity.
