Colloidal minerals provide trace elements missing from modern diets due to modern agricultural practices, less than optimal diets and soil depletion. Minerals are needed for the enzymes that are essential for a huge range of the body's needs.
When proper balance is restored, a startling variety of illness can be helped; your specific response will depend on which minerals your body needs most.
However research has shown that everyone will benefit from increased nutrient absorption (which increases the "goodness' you receive from your food and vitamins, and removal of toxic inorganic minerals like metallic aluminium and heavy metals

Hundreds of thousands of people have benefited for over 85 years from a product discovered by a southern Utah rancher. It has proved useful for a great variety of seemingly unrelated problems:
I've got more energy... my arthritis got better... my blood sugar stabilised... early cataracts went away... my white hair turned black again... my knee arthritis got better... reduced blood-cell clumping.
The U.S. Government thought it must contain cortisone or other drugs ... so they analysed it and found only plant source, trace minerals in colloidal form. Clark's Original Mineral Formula is the only nutritional supplement with a consent decree from the U.S. Government.
Tom Clark has developed a complex leaching process to extract and concentrate these minerals. Rather than use industrial extraction processes, he developed an extraction method which produces a product as close to the original spring water as possible. He blends selections from various deposits and uses a complex series of filtration and cold water extraction procedures. Years of research also showed there was an optimum concentration. Too concentrated a product could produce diarrhoea or nausea in sensitive people.
TJ CLark's unique extraction processes produce a purer, milder tasting liquid. Other processes which use heat produce a higher yield, and so are cheaper to make, but we feel the cold water extraction process is worth the extra cost.
So How and Why Does It Work?
The most likely explanation is that the TJ Clark Colloidal Minerals provides minerals we are lacking in a form we can absorb.
We believe our product has unusual electrical properties that increase absorption. This has been confirmed in 1992 by a special electronic wavelength test done by Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, one of Germany's foremost biophysicists. (see Bio-electric test) Note that this test was done specifically on our T.J. Clark Company product.
And why are we short on minerals?
- Soil depletion: years of continuous cropping has exhausted our soil. Most fertilisers only put back the minimum to increase yield (See NPK fertilisers)
- Modern agricultural practices: have "strip-mined" much of our farming land of its nutrients
- Food refining: the further away from the original source, the emptier the food: fresh fruit & vegetables have the most minerals, refined & manufactured foods like cakes, biscuits, pasta ... have the least
- Poor diet: how many people do you know eat the recommended 5 servings of fruit or vegies every day?
- Lifestyle changes: We don't get the exercise or physical work we used to, so don't need to eat as much. It's harder to get all we need from 3 smaller meals, even if we eat correctly
What About Other Brands?
Ours is the only brand that has been tested for safety. And many studies have shown our TJ Clark minerals improve vitamin absorption and help with many other problems such as heavy metal elimination.
Other brands have a simple content analysis, but seem to lack any further testing or safety testing. As far as we are aware, all the published research has only been done on the TJ Clark product.
The unique electrical properties of colloids are very easily destroyed, but some brands contain sugar and flavourings to mask the slightly bitter taste; or even add additional inorganic minerals - this changes the very properties that allow the minerals in the Clark liquid to be absorbed so well.
