A gold prospector in the 1970s discovered a patch of shiny mineralized clay high in the Sierra Mountains. When he fed some to his dog who had a lame paw, the paw healed quickly. He then ate some himself and experienced relief from pain he had suffered for years. He shared his discovery with several businessmen who had similar results. Together they decided to bring this miraculous mineral to market so others could benefit too.
Research showed this mineral complex to be very safe for long-term use. The LD50 test, which determines how high of a dose is required to kill half of the test animals, was stopped at 70 times the normal dose because the rats were continuing to improve in health with no sign of toxicity.
Further research showed that this unique blend of minerals greatly reduces or eliminates inflammation which destroys the joint cartilage in both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. It does this by inhibiting the inflammatory factor interleukin-1beta (IL-1B) and by reducing the production of nitric oxide and glycosaminoglycan (GOG) responsible for cartilage degeneration. The mineral complex reduces inflammation not only in every joint but in other areas of the body as well. Other supplements commonly used for joint health like glucosamine and chondroitin only provide the nutrients for rebuilding cartilage; they do nothing to reduce the inflammation.
Controlled human trials with this mineral complex found significant pain relief within two weeks, faster than for any other supplement. Along with the reduced pain, the researchers also observed reduced stiffness and increased activity in the group taking the mineral.
This formula has been available in Canada for a few years and is rapidly growing in popularity as people try it and tell their friends and neighbors. If you haven’t tried it yet, talk to your neighbors – they probably have – or know someone who has. If you are taking prescription drugs for joint pain, talk to your doctor about the possibility of adding this mineral complex to your program.
