Colloidal Minerals - Fact and Myth
Steven E. Whiting, Ph.D. Institute of Nutritional Science San Diego
With the tremendous success of trace mineral products in the marketplace there naturally will be differences of opinion regarding type, form, source, etc. Unfortunately, most of this 'controversy' comes from the marketing departments of various firms attempting to cast aspersions on competing products.
Many of the companies currently selling liquid mineral supplements have jumped on the bandwagon very recently, doing so with little or no knowledge of the product they are promoting. It is tragic that the biggest source of nutritional information available to the public is the marketing hype delivered by companies whose goal is to simply sell a product rather than provide an education and information source to the clientele they service.
