Colloidal supplements are pure, nano sized particles suspended in water purified by reverse osmosis.
The body is made up of many things, including trace elements such as copper and iridium. In the past, these would be absorbed naturally through the diet through the use of metal plates, glasses, and pots.
These natural colloidal supplements provide small particles that can be used at the cellular level. They have an incredibly low ionic percentage, making them safer than other brands.
Particle Size and Surface Area
All our colloidal mineral supplements are made with nano-sized particles of the mineral or element. We create such tiny particles because they are:
1) the most effective way for the body to absorb the mineral or element -- increased bioavailability at the cellular level PLUS the tiny size allows for the most particle surface area in the suspension, which is a key factor in effectiveness.
2) they are the safest because the body can easily pass or eliminate what it does not need
Particles vs. Ions
One of the most important things to know about our pure colloids is that we use actual particles of silver, gold, copper, zinc, platinum, iridium or silica. Most products that are marketed as "colloids" actually contain mineral ions not particles, which are nowhere near as effective and can actually be dangerous.
Another measure of colloidal supplement effectiveness is the concentration of the particles in the suspension. Check the parts per million (ppm) of our purest colloids against other brands and you will see that Colloids for Life sells the best, most effective and purest colloids available.
Why Take Colloidal Mineral Supplements?
The human body needs trace elements for optimal functioning. We used to naturally absorb these minerals and elements through the use of cookware, plates, pots, dishes, utensils, glasses, etc. (think of iron skillets, copper pots, silverware actually made of silver, silica in glass).
There are no known side-effects to taking natural colloidal supplements in moderate amounts, and no known drug interactions.
