Minerals larger than an
angstrom must be broken down by the digestive system to become small enough to
be used. Commercial minerals by the pharmaceutical industry are bound to
(chelated) something else (Calcium + lactate for instance) this is to allow the
digestive system to be tricked into digesting it by recognizing the particle as
"A salt of lactic acid" with just according to one web site I found:
“Calcium Lactate Found in dairy
products. Calcium lactate is 37% calcium. Only 33% of the calcium is absorbed
from the lactate. So for every 1,000 mg of calcium lactate 37% or 370 mg is
calcium. Of this 370 mg 33% is absorbed, or only 122 mg
of useable calcium.”
If you want to
supplement minerals water is not the answer... Pure Water (distilled) is good
for your body..
Angstrom (Å or A)
a metric unit of length, equal to
0.1 nanometer or 10-10 meter. Angstroms are used most often to
measure the wavelength of light waves. There is a technique called spectroscopy
for identifying chemical substances by the wavelengths of light, which they
absorb (or emit, depending on the circumstances). Light shining through or from
the substance is passed through a prism, which separates the various wavelengths
to form a colorful spectrum. The spectrum often includes bright bands
corresponding to wave lengths at which the substance emits light, or dark bands
if the substance is absorbing light. The pattern of bands identifies the
substance in somewhat the same way a fingerprint identifies a person. One of the
pioneers of spectroscopy was the Swedish physicist Anders Jon Ångström
(1814-1874), and in his honor the wave lengths of light waves are customarily
stated in angstroms. Although English speakers usually pronounce the word as if
it were English, the Swedish pronunciation is closer to

WaterOz was founded by David
Hinkson in 1990. He was motivated to learn about health and proper nutrition
after traditional approaches failed to deal with numerous personal health
problems. By utilization of a highly technical process, WaterOz
turns pure minerals into an ionic, water-soluble solution that the body can
completely absorb and use. The product contains no fillers, binders,
preservatives, or chemicals - only the purest
minerals available on the market and the purest water.
Welcome to WaterOz
Natural healing laws and methods have
existed since the beginning of recorded history and probably before. A rapidly
growing segment of the population, some 66 percent, has turned to the drugless
healing arts and practices and thus spurred renewed interest in nutritional
principles, exercise, breathing, iridology, homeopathy, fasting, reflex therapy,
polarity work, glandular balancing, herbology, acupuncture, and many other
aspects of the holistic approach to health.
Good health entails a high level of physical, mental, and
spiritual well being. The key to health and well being is found in maintaining a
proper nutritional foundation, as excess or deficiency in any of the primary
chemical elements needed in human nutrition could account for most diseases and
pathogenetic mental symptoms. Human body tissue can neither be restored nor
rejuvenated without proper nutritional support; eating correctly should,
therefore, be our number one priority, but the reality of our highly processed
fast food society is that today it is very difficult to follow a healthy diet
and even more difficult for our body to digest, absorb, and metabolize the foods
we eat into useable elements necessary for proper body function. The problem is
compounded by the fact that many fruits and vegetables are picked green before
they absorb the proper life-giving nutrients (for easier transportation to
markets) and that our soil is largely depleted of the essential elements.
Nutrient depleted soil = Nutrient depleted food.
Our bodies are not designed to ingest and assimilate foods that
have been irradiated, devitalized, are deficient in vitamins, enzymes, fiber,
and nutrients, and loaded with additives designed to give them eternal shelf
life. Such "food" leads to sickness and disease. Since every disease takes time
to develop, eliminating disease takes time, too. Hering’s Law of Cure states:
"when we use the drugless healing arts, all illness is reversed and we go
through a remission period in which we pick up again our old troubles. Thus
gradually, we reverse from the chronic stage of disease toward good health by
entering a healing crisis when an acute stage has been reached, often the
discharge stage." In the same way our bodies are not designed to ingest and
assimilate inferior foods, our bodies do not thrive on pharmaceutical drugs
created in a laboratory. Drugs are not structured or evolved for compatibility
with the human organism. More often than not, drugs cause side effects that
range from uncomfortable to severe to lethal.
In recognition of the fact that we are not getting the mineral
nutrition our bodies need from the food we eat, and thus the corresponding need
for mineral supplementation, WaterOz was born. Our bodies are made of the
same basic chemical elements (minerals) of which the earth is made. Minerals are
essential for life and health. Specific minerals facilitate specific functions
in the organs and tissues where they are dominantly stored. Each mineral is a
conductor or transmitter operating on a specific vibratory frequency. Rarely
does any element function alone. Each element achieves its power through
bio-chemical combination and relationship with other elements; in other words,
our products all work synergistically with our other products and the natural
minerals we get from pure food sources.
Remember, as with everything in life, balance is important. Either
inadequate or excessive production or supply of the essential nutrients required
for proper body function can result in physiological imbalance leading to a wide
variety of disease states. The importance of nutritional supplements is widely
recognized in the scientific community and among nutritionally oriented
physicians, but it is important to remember that nutritional supplementation
should be considered part of a long-term health program, not a quick fix. After
taking WaterOz products, some people may feel a difference within 48 hours; for others,
there is a more subtle change that takes longer to recognize. Ultimately, most
people feel increased energy, an improved sense of well being, and get sick less
We need to return to a simpler, more natural way of life. Eat
plenty of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, berries, and herbs. When available,
choose organically raised beef and chicken, and fresh fish. Finally, get plenty
of fresh air and sunshine, exercise and adequate rest.
Recognition of the importance of the minerals
required for perfect health is so new, that few textbooks contain much about it.
It is now believed that at least 24 elements are essential to living matter
(i.e. deficiency symptoms occur when these elements are lacking which are then
resolved when proper balance is achieved). Minerals are essential to physical
and mental health. They are a basic part of all cells, particularly blood,
nerve, muscle, bones, teeth, and soft tissue. Some are essential for functional
support such as the electrolyte minerals (sodium, potassium, and chloride), that
help regulate the fluid and acid-base balance of our bodies, while other
minerals are part of enzymes that catalyze biochemical reactions, aid energy
production, metabolism, nerve transmission, muscle contraction, and cell
permeability. Carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals are the
building blocks of our diet and provide the fuel, or source of energy, to
maintain life and promote cell and tissue growth and other biochemical support.
Minerals contain no calories or energy in themselves, but assist the body in
Minerals (or elements), come from the earth, and eventually return
to the earth, and can most simply be defined as chemical molecules that cannot
be reduced to simpler substances. They exist in their inorganic state in the
earth, and in their organic state as the basic constituent of all living matter.
The main elements essential to health, each of which makes up more than .01
percent of total body weight, are termed macrominerals (calcium,
phosphorus, chlorine, potassium, sulfur, sodium, magnesium and silicon). The
next group of elements, termed microminerals or trace minerals, each of
which constitute less than .01 percent of total body weight, though found only
in minute amounts, are also essential to health (iron, copper, zinc, iodine,
cobalt, bromide, boron, manganese, selenium, fluorine, molybdenum, vanadium,
arsenic and chromium). Other elements contained in the body include some of the
toxic metals (lead, aluminum, cadmium, and mercury).
Aluminum - Is it really as bad as we think?
We have heard several times over the past
few years that aluminum is toxic to the human body, that it causes Alzheimer’s
amongst a variety of other ailments. Is all this hype really true? Much of what
we hear today is just a big ball of misinformation that one must filter through
to get to the real truth.
Aluminum is actually one of the most abundant elements on the
earth. It makes up one seventh of the earth’s crust, and is always combined with
some other element. It is a major component of all life, including our food
chain. Beans alone have tested an incredibly high 1,640 ppm. It is in everything
we eat, but in its natural form. Only when used in excess amounts in this form
is it known to be toxic and not for human consumption; the same goes for all
trace elements including arsenic, lead, iron, mercury, etc. All are natural
minerals that are necessary for human nutrition, but can be toxic in excess
It is important to get these elements in the proper particle size.
The incorrect size can cause serious problems and health issues. A plant will
automatically sort and sift through the soil to absorb those minerals and
elements that will permeate at the cellular level and "feed" it. When we then
eat the plant, those nutrients enter our body and work in much the same way as
it did for the plant. Most of the food we partake of today, however, has many of
these elements in the improper form and are not the proper size for our own
cells to absorb and use.
There have been several studies done on aluminum. Gerhardt
Schrauzer, PhD, head of chemistry at UCSD insists that aluminum is essential to
human nutrition. The "Harvard University Newsletter" has stated that in all of
the scientific research done, none of the reports stated what form of aluminum
is poisonous, natural or synthetic.
Any element found to occur naturally in the soil or plants is
organic. It was put there long before man ever came along. It is when man
refines out these minerals to use in food products, etc., that it changes from
an organic and natural form to a synthetic one. All trace elements are needed
and even required to sustain human life, but only in trace amounts. Anything in
excess is to be avoided whether natural or synthetic.
Metal poisoning, from too much of a mineral, primarily affects the
metabolic enzymes, brain and nervous system, but can affect many other bodily
functions as well. In addition to the toxic metals, some essential elements,
such as copper, iodine, selenium, chromium, iron and calcium, are more likely
than other minerals to cause health problems when high levels are present in the
body, resulting either from excessive intake or reduced ability to eliminate
them. Although your body can manufacture some vitamins, it cannot make minerals.
Thus a deficiency of minerals is more common than a deficiency of vitamins.
Minerals are harder to extract from food complexes during digestion and there is
more "uptake" competition compared to vitamins.
What Makes WaterOz Minerals Unique
WaterOz mineral dietary supplements
are the purest minerals available on the market (up to 99.9999% pure) and the
purest water (a five step purification process assures absolutely pure water).
Nothing more, nothing less. WaterOz, through a complex proprietary
process, liquefies minerals to a state where (when dehydrated) they will grow
crystals. Each mineral presents unique problems that must be overcome in a
different manner than each other mineral. This process duplicates nature’s
method of turning minerals from the earth into a form useable by man. When a
plant processes minerals from the earth, the minerals end up in the crystalline
form necessary in order to be useable and absorbable by the body.
