Most people are deficient in minerals, especially magnesium, while taking excess calcium because that is what mainstream medicine says you need for teeth and bones. This product removes excess calcium, thus creating a balance.
If this product will remove excess calcium...that would be good as it's believed by some that it contributes to many problems including cardiovascular disease...funny Dr. Thomas Levy does NOT recommend taking calcium.

Here are links to some info, you be the judge on how accurate the info is...

What concerns me is the aluminum in the finished product, is this naturally occurring and is this level anything to be concerned about long term? The analysis is on page 11.

Aluminum is a necessary mineral in the body, in trace amounts, just like copper and gold.

I am a big believer in mineral deficiencies causing disease. We only need to look at the past to determine that, eg: Rickets, Scurvy, Pellagra, and Beriberi. Once the body is deficient in one (or more) mineral or vitamin, disease can start. This can result in fungal or bacterial organisms to take control of the body, causing everything from Diabetes, hypertention, cancers, to Alzheimers, and everything in between.

Once the vitamin / mineral deficiency is corrected with proper supplementation, the disease will be reversed. ( or greatly improved)

Aluminum, in my opinion, is necessary for teeth and bone development. It also counteracts calcium, thus is necessary to decalcify joints, brain, and is especially usefull with decalcification of arteries. Most people take in waaay too much calcium, and without appropriate amounts of D3 and magnesium, most of this calcium ends up in the soft tissues, such as arteries and brain, instead of teeth and bones, where it is needed.

It is also my opinion that this product is reasonably safe to use, and has been around for several years, so problems such as aluminum toxcicity would be widely known if this was the case.

If you want to try something "lighter", but still contains over 60 minerals, try using Redmond (Real Salt) sea salt instead of oxidized, heated, and chemically altered table salt.

Thanks much for the info and opinion...it makes sense...

I have not used table salt in many years except in restaurants, I don't use much sea or Himalayan salt....funny when I used table salt I used to have salt cravings, I still do, but not so much anymore.

Do you avoid salt for a reason or you just don't find yourself wanting it?

Dr. F. Batmanghelidj in his book, "You're Not Sick You're Thirsty" says it would do our bodies good to use 1/2 tsp. of salt a day or 1/4 tsp. salt per quart of water a day.

Since making the switch to real salt from table salt, I just don't crave it anymore, maybe my body doesn't need it as much as before now that I am getting real salt. Maybe I should make myself take a little more?

Does anyone here have an opinion as to "Adya Clarity" being a good mineral supplement for RO water? say...as good as the mineral supplements available for this purpose like the "Trace Minerals" supplement which is made from the Great Salt Lakes which I understand is quite polluted.

I don't buy bottled water. I carry a (stainless steel) thermos of water. My water comes from a well drilled into an underground aquifer which is fed by runoff from the mountains. I use a magnet system to soften the hard water. I don't filter the water. (When I lived in a city, I filtered the tap water with a Brita device.)

I have a multi-stage gravity filter system. I don't add minerals to the water but I have a wholefood diet including sea vegetables, and I use unrefined 'grey' sea salt. I sometimes have a strange craving for black salt (strange sulphurous rock salt) and suck a lump of it.

I drink plain old tap water.

We used to buy bottled water for drinking at home but then I thought maybe the children weren't having their immunities develop properly. They have to get used to the environment in which they live, and drinking the local water is part of that process.

It is like going to South America, drinking the water there and getting sick. The locals can drink it because they are accustomed to the bacteria and whatever else is in the local water. But a foreigner who drinks the water there would get sick.

To me, buying bottled water for drinking at home is like making my children foreigners to their own water. So we stopped doing it. I want them as adapted as possible to their environment.

My tap water tastes terrible...and I really don't want to drink it.

Is this more b/s or is there real science behind this?

Most bottled water is just filtered municipal water with all the chemicals they add to it. Don't waste your money on bottle water unless you can afford very expensive mineral water.

I drink my well water that is free of chemicals and full of minerals since it is naturally filtered through a large deposit of solid limestone. Plus my well is 165 ft deep, so it's free of groundwater contaminants as well. It's the cleanest, sweetest tasting water I've ever had. I'm lucky to live in a huge limestone area.

So are you in Fl? I am in Fl but my water is crap city water, full of chlorine and probably fluoride and other "necessary additives", it's a shame because they could get water from the Fl. aquifer which is made of limestone and provide us with a better quality water than they do.

When I lived in Salt Lake I used a Regency II ionic purifier. It required a filter change annually. With this I used another filter called an alumina filter which was designed to take out fluoride before it went into the regency.

Now that I live in the mountains I drink pure well water from an aquafure of high mountain drainage. This water is pretty good but it does leave calcium deposits in the coffee pot... so when our house is complete I will put in a www.photonicwater.com device to energize the water and to put the minerals back into a charged and energized state that is suppose to eliminate calcium buildup or other mineral deposits in pipes etc, including human pipes.

Arrow, so you believe there is science behind this that makes these claims true? I have wondered also about ionic purifiers like the Kangen really work? I know they separate the water but if jfh is correct drinking alkaline water will dilute your stomach acid...I am so confused!
