Not all minerals are created equal. For years the debate has raged on over which kind of minerals are the best for our human bodies. (Organic, inorganic, clay, colloidal, petrified vegetation, ancient organic sea beds, ionic, etc. . . ) All of this debate has left most people more confused than ever.
Minerals by their very nature are inorganic, non-living substances that are used by living creatures, or are they? Petrified vegetation, ancient organic sea bed, petroleum products, coal and diamonds by some standards could all be considered organic but are dead and lifeless, containing minerals and other nutrients largely inassimilable by the human body.
Ionic minerals on the other hand which may be considered inorganic by most standards are actually pure living minerals. In nature nonliving things have the tendency to break down and eventually wash away, go from organization to disintegration. Only living things have the tendency to build up towards a more perfect state, to heal themselves, collect that which is good, incorporate it, utilize it or make it better. Ionic minerals although considered inorganic/carbonless, fall into this category of living things.
