NOTE: Gold is Not a DIETARY supplement.
Ok, first things first. You have heard so much about colloidal minerals and how they are so much better than "regular minerals". The truth is, they are better than some off the shelf mineral mixed with a carrier to make it usable by your body. But wait! What if there was something smaller, MORE absobable, and costs less because it was not sold by a MLM Company?
I once belonged to an MLM company. They came out with this quart size gold liquid. Only it was supposed to be gold flakes in special jelly and it tasted like vinegar. It cost about $75 a quart. If that was real gold it would have been $200 to $300 worth. Think about it. Large flakes of gold. Your body cannot digest flakes of gold. It was all tricky advertising.
To discover the best gold on the planet, we must understand the marketing buzz words like ionic gold, colloidal gold, mono-atomic gold and Angstrom size gold.
Ionic Gold - An Ionic mineral is mostly a buzz word to fool you by creative marketers. If you remember your basic chemistry in high school, all minerals on the periodic table have a charge. Positive or negative. Remember covelant bonds? Well I am not going to go into it that far but all minerals have a charge. The charge can be neutralized if they are all ready bonded to some other garbage. An Example is calcium carbonate. It looks like this: CaCo3. That means three carbons for every calcium, excess baggage. That is why calcium carbonate is the least absorbable. So all minerals are ionic, The bonds may be forced to create weaker bonds that the body can use easier like calcium citrate. Study you high school chemistry, it will all come back to you. Our minerals are ionic, but with out the excess baggage.
Colloidal Gold- Well, it is better than sucking on your gold ring! A colloid is a Particle, which may be a molecular aggregate, with a diameter of 0.1 to 0.001 clay and soil organic matter are often called soil colloids. The smallest are atoms, then molecules, then proteins and the colloids. Colloids are good minerals, but they can be bad if they are a collection of junk. Think of a conglomerate rock. It is a million little rocks cemented together into one larger rock. That is what a colloid is in the sense that it is mineral stuck together in pieces too large to enter the human cell. It must be digested to be broken down.
Mono-Atomic Mono meaning one, so one atom. So it is smaller than colloidal.
Angstrom is the smallest wave length of light and used to describe the length of molecules of minerals. Angstrom is a measurement to illustrate how small the particles are in the mono-atomic form. Mono=One and Atomic=atom, therefore meaning one atom form. Colloids (like colloidal silver) and complex minerals are all in particle size of approximately a micron. One human hair is about 50 microns wide. An angstrom is 10,000 times smaller than a micron. So you see a liquid colloidal mineral is good, but......
You know, you are in luck! Gold is one of the few minerals that taste sweet.
So what is it good for?
Gold - Although all of the uses for gold have not been identified it has been reported to be effective against active joint inflammation and has been used as an add on therapy with aspirin for arthritis when pain relief is required. Placebo effect, Yes it is possible.
There is continuing research to discover all the benefits of gold. Gold is thought to promote a general feeling of well-being, support the body's natural defenses, and promote vitality and longevity. Gold may have an antioxidant effect on free radicals, promoting the health of various tissues.
