I thought it only right that I add this information to the site. We are in the business of helping people to benefit – should they wish – from using a really effective plant derived mineral supplement – you’ve probably guessed that already!
There are those who will be concerned I suspect, about the title topic. Well, I have an really good explanation below….

There’s Aluminium in Our Minerals… Isn’t That Toxic ?
Oh dear, more confusion from health professionals that need a little education.
Nature has designed the human body to consume food and in turn these foods ‘should’ contain minerals. These food state (plant derived) minerals are in a form which the body can recognise, absorb and digest. Minerals in ‘food state’ are either utilised by the body or naturally passed through the system and dis-guarded if not required.
Any other form of mineral is literally useless and in some cases dangerous for us humans to consume. Bananas, broccoli, spinach are just a few examples that contain significant levels of ‘food state’ aluminium, indeed, aluminium is one of the most abundant minerals in our soils and everything that grows in soils will contain aluminium.
This misunderstanding of minerals and aluminium is part of what we try to help people understand; “would you rather consume the aluminium from a banana or from a cooking pot or saucepan? What about the iron from spinach or from a ground up metal iron bar?” – This highlights the fundamental difference between plant derived (food state) minerals and metallic minerals.
Some manufacturers will bond or chelate other elements to metallic minerals to try and ‘fool’ the body into absorbing them. These types of mineral supplements have little or no real benefit. There are some metallic minerals which are toxic if consumed in quantity (ie iron) and the body really doesn’t understand what to do with metallic minerals so in many cases they just build up until a problem is caused.
Hope that clears that up for you. Please do also pop over and see how the Simply Naturals Sizzling Minerals can probably help you…. MORE HERE. See the video and Testimonials links!
