Q&A Minerals and Vitamins


Plant Derived Minerals & Vitamins are The Foundation of Life !!

Why Supplement with Plant Derived Minerals?

You must give your body all the raw materials it requires to maintain and renew itself in order to achieve a healthy life. The raw materials so vital to your health can be challenging to find. Centuries of mining, farming, irrigation and acid rain have eroded life giving minerals from our soil.

Mineral deficient soils are then used to grow and cultivate our food. Because of this, our food is lacking in the essential plant minerals necessary to live a long and healthy life. It’s not surprising that when your body is robbed of essential plant minerals it is unable to repair, rebuild and protect itself against illness and disease.

THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, The UK Ministry of Agriculture, UNICEF and The Royal Society of Chemistry have confirmed the shocking fact that millions are suffering around the world because of mineral depletion in the soils. Even tests on USA soil show a massive 85% depletion!! This is devastating to health.

“The root of all disease is directly related to a lack of minerals” – Dr. Linus Pauling (Nobel Prize Winner)

“The human body needs at least 60 (plant) minerals to maintain a disease and ailment free state” and “Vitamins are basically useless in the absence of minerals” – Dr. Gary Price-Todd

“One sentence has killed more people than all the wars in American history: You get all the nutrition you need from the four food groups.”  – Dr. Wallach

“We should be eating plant based minerals” – Dr. Carolyn Dean MD. ND.

Plant Derived Minerals

This is the reason the principals at Simply Naturals believe you should consider Sizzling Minerals. This product provides up to 75 trace minerals. It is also plant derived, containing the same kind of hydrophilic minerals that are found in fruits and vegetables.

This type of mineral is unlike a metallic mineral obtained from ancient seabed’s, soil or ground up rocks. Metallic minerals have a positive electrical charge whereby plant minerals like those in Sizzling Minerals have a negative charge or what experts call a negative zeta potential.

This makes a big difference in the body’s ability to digest these minerals for the utmost benefit. Today’s environment of polluted atmosphere, toxic chemicals, toxic emissions and contaminated water can alter the functions of one’s body on a day-to-day basis. Plant derived minerals can help regulate these alterations

All our products are highly potent and contain only the purest ingredients to produce the ultimate in nutritional supplements. Experience the finest health supplement available today and make sure you try our sizzling minerals. For maximum effect take Sizzling Minerals for 3 months and please tell us of your experience with them.

Understanding Minerals

One of the most exciting and beneficial qualities of Plant Derived Minerals is that they contain a negative charge. These negatively charged particles are called ‘anions’ and they are referred to as having a negative Zeta Potential.

When tiny minerals or organic particles (colloids) are suspended in a fluid the negative ionic charge around the colloid is what maintains dispersion of the particles of the suspension.

Today in the USA nearly 50% of the population will die from cardiovascular disease a condition practically unheard of 100 years ago. So what has happened in the last century to cause this?

  : Processing of foods
  : Unnatural farming practices using Cationic positive Zeta Potential herbicides and pesticides
  : Chlorination
  : Cationic aluminium in water processing and cans

  : Increased cooked animal protein
  : Consumption of heated polyunsaturated and trans-fats
  : De-mineralization of soil and foods


All of these practices result in a reduced zeta potential and hence an increased tendency for blood to become sticky and ‘sludge’ like.


Why do many nutritionists say minerals are more important than vitamins?

Those who have studied the body and the effect of nutrients have learned vitamins have little or no benefit in the absence of adequate minerals.

I have heard some nutritional experts say the world is facing a health crisis because of mineral deficiencies. Is this true?

This may be very true! It’s been said that possibly 100% of all humans and animals suffer from a mineral deficiency. Much of this can be attributed to a deficiency of minerals in the soils where plants grow. In prehistoric times the soils of the earth, within 2 metres of the surface, contained upward of 80 minerals. Today, we are lucky to find more than 18 minerals. This deficiency occurred due to millions of years of wind and rain erosion, several hundred years of unwise farming practices and now to some extent, from commercial fertilizers.

What is the difference between Major minerals and Trace minerals?

There is no difference. All minerals are the same. However, those that the World Health Organization believes an adult needs in quantities of more than 100 MG per day are classified as major minerals. Those that are believed to be required in smaller quantities are called trace minerals.

Why do the well-known mineral supplements contain only about 12 minerals at best?

Most nationally advertised mineral supplements come from the earth and are classified as metallic minerals. They are usually available in capsule or tablet form. All metallic minerals come from soil, ground up rocks, salts or ancient seabeds etc. Due to the earths’ mineral deficiency, there are not more than 12 or 15 minerals available to put into most nationally advertised brands.

If the earth is deficient in minerals, how can Sizzling Minerals claim to have 75 minerals?

The Sizzling Minerals come from a prehistoric deposit of plant humus that accumulated, according to scientists, around seventy million years ago. It is believed the plants that grew during that period contained 75 to 80 minerals because there were at least 80 minerals in the soil to feed the plants. This Humus, referred to as Humic Shale has been safely encapsulated far below the earths’ surface for millions of years. 

What is the difference between plant minerals and metallic minerals?

Metallic minerals are metals and are much more difficult to assimilate because they are harder for the human digestive system to dissolve. Minerals like those that come from tomatoes, carrots, apples or Sizzling Minerals were at one time metallic minerals. As the plants grew the metallic minerals passed through the plant roots and through a scientific process known as photosynthesis, the metallic minerals became water-soluble and were broken down in size. This is Mother Nature’s way of converting metallic minerals into a more useable and effective form for human and animal consumption. According to the Colorado School of Mines, a plant mineral (depending on the specific mineral) is hundreds and even thousands of times smaller than a metallic mineral. It is understood that due to the solubility and small size, a plant derived mineral can be more easily assimilated than a metallic mineral.

Sizzling Minerals contain Aluminium. Can this be safe for humans to consume?

Few people are aware of this but nearly every food on earth contains a significant amount of aluminium because aluminium is the second most abundant mineral in our soils. Fortunately the aluminium in a tomato or carrot or Sizzling Minerals is attached to another molecule by Mother Nature. It is not raw aluminium like that used to make soup pans. The aluminium in a tomato and Sizzling Minerals is attached to a hydrogen molecule forming aluminium hydroxide. Aluminium hydroxide is approved for food and food processing throughout the world.

Natural Vitamins v Synthetic.

Vitamins are little organic molecules that we need, but we can’t make them or at least we have a difficult time making them ourselves. We must rely on our food to keep us stocked with these essential nutrients, but our food is getting less and less nutritious. Fields are depleted by overuse. Pesticides limit the action of beneficial microbes in the soil that help plants draw in nutrients. Fertilizers focus on certain key chemicals and don’t take into account all the trace minerals, organic components, or beneficial microbes that go into good nutrition. And genetically modified foods have made their way into our food supply when we don’t know how they may affect us in the long term.

On top of these problems, we refine and process our food so it lasts longer, is more convenient, tastes better, and is even made to be more addictive. We strip out and destroy vital nutrients as we process them. Much of the food we find in grocery stores outside the produce section, barely resembles what humanity has been eating for thousands of years. There’s no wonder we have so many auto-immune disorders, food allergies, and growing epidemics of obesity. Our bodies don’t know what we’re ingesting, they are not finding the nutrients that they need, and they’re begging us to eat more and more so we might manage to give ourselves what we’re missing (this often results in obesity).

We all know we need a steady supply of vitamins and minerals so our bodies can function properly. Scientists, doctors, and food companies agree too, so they create cheap vitamins in laboratories, fortify our foods and beverages with them, and dump them into multivitamins. The problem is these synthetic vitamins are not what our bodies are looking for; because they are both unnatural and incomplete.

Almost all multivitamins are from synthetics. The same goes for fortified foods. There’s a good reason for this. Synthetic vitamins are cheaper to make and usually more stable. This means they can last on shelves for months or years, can be added to foods in high doses, and create small dense tablets packed with insane amounts of every type of vitamin. These vitamins are allowed to call themselves “natural” even when they are actually synthetic because scientists say the synthetics are virtually identical to the ones found in food !!!!

The way these compounds are made is not remotely similar to the metabolic processes that plants and animals use to create them. The finished product is also usually a compound not exactly in the same form as those found in nature. These synthetic vitamins, according to a multitude of studies, are not as bioavailable, absorbable, or usable. These “virtually identical” vitamins are not what we find in natural foods, not recognizable to the body, hard on the kidneys, and can often be treated as toxins.

Vitamin A – Vitamin A shows up in food as beta-carotene. The body must convert it into vitamin A to be useful. This sounds less effective, but vitamin A can be toxic in large doses. Beta-carotene allows the body to convert what it needs and discard what it does not as a natural safeguard against damage.

Synthetic Vitamin A – Synthetic vitamin A is retinyl palmitate or retinyl acetate. This synthetic is made from combining fish or palm oil with beta-ionone. Palm oil is leading to deforestation of rainforest and endangerment of orangutans. Beta-ionone is created using citrus, acetone, and calcium oxide.

Natural Vitamin B1 – Thiamin, or vitamin B1, is a water soluble vitamin created by plants and bound to phosphate. Digestion releases the thiamin using specialized enzymes that target phosphate.

Synthetic Vitamin B1 – Thiamine mononitrate or thiamine hydrochloride is made from coal tar, ammonia, acetone, and hydrochloric acid. It is much less absorbable since it isn’t bound to phosphate. It is crystalline in structure, unlike plant-based vitamins. Many synthetic vitamins are crystalline. Crystals in our blood stream cause damage and mineral accumulation where it isn’t needed, like joints.

Natural Vitamin B2 – Riboflavin is easily absorbed, stays in the blood stream for long periods of time, and is readily used by the body in many important enzymes.

Synthetic Vitamin B2 – Synthetic riboflavin is made with acetic acid and nitrogen or using genetically modified bacteria and fermentation. It has been shown to be less absorbable and then quickly removed from the blood stream and expelled in urine like a toxin would be.

Natural Vitamin B3 – Niacinamide or nicotinamide is what we find in food and commonly call niacin. Niacin can have side effects, but these are minimal when coming from plant foods.

Synthetic Vitamin B3 – Nicotinic acid is created using coal tar, ammonia, acids, 3-cyanopyridine, and formaldehyde. It is less absorbable and has more risks of side effects.

Natural Vitamin B5 – Pantothenate is the natural version of this essential B vitamin.

Synthetic Vitamin B5 – Pantothenic acid involves isobutyraldehyde and formaldehyde to form a calcium or sodium salt. The alcohol derivative, panthenol, is sometimes used as it is more stable and lasts longer on store shelves.

Natural Vitamin B6 – Like B1, pyridoxine is bound with phosphate in plants to make pyridoxal-phosphate. This is the biologically active form. Any other form of B6 must be converted into this phosphate combination before our body can use it.

Synthetic Vitamin B6 – Pyridoxine hydrochloride comes from petroleum ester, hydrochloric acid, and formaldehyde. It isn’t readily absorbed or converted and has been shown to actually inhibit the action of natural B6 in the body. It also has side effects not normally found with natural food sources of this vitamin.

Natural Vitamin B7 – Biotin is involved in cell growth, fat production, and metabolism.

Synthetic Vitamin B7 – Synthetic B7 is produced using fumaric acid.

Natural Vitamin B9 – This B vitamin exists in food as folate and is very important in the creation and repair of DNA, thus the vital importance of this vitamin before and during pregnancy.

Synthetic Vitamin B9 – Folic acid doesn’t exist in natural foods, is crystalline, and is not easily absorbed despite the large amounts that are added to vitamins and supplements. It comes from petroleum derivatives, acids, and acetylene.

Natural Vitamin B12 – Cobalamin B12 is only created by micro-organisms like the bacteria that grow in soil and our intestines, as well as some micro-algae and perhaps some seaweed species.

Synthetic Vitamin B12 – Cobalt and cyanide are fermented to make cyanocobalamin. That’s correct. Cyanide. It is in miniscule amounts, but it is still cyanide.

Natural Choline – Choline is often grouped with B vitamins. It is combined with phosphate in nature and is important in cell membranes and keeping fat in check.

Synthetic Choline – Choline chloride or choline bitartrate is made using ethylene, ammonia, and hydrochloric acid or tartaric acid. It is not bound to phosphate.

Vitamin C – This vitamin is readily available in citrus, red bell peppers, berries, and many more fruits and vegetables. In nature it is combined with flavonoids and phytonutrients that help in its absorption and use.

Synthetic Vitamin C – Ascorbic acid is an isolated vitamin from genetically modified corn sugar that is hydrogenated and processed with acetone. It does not include the flavonoids and phytonutrients that make it work.

Natural Vitamin D – Technically this one isn’t always thought of as a vitamin since we make it ourselves. Mushrooms, yeast, and lichen produce vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. Humans do too. A daily dose of about 20 minutes of sunlight provides all we need. Vitamin D3 is the most effective kind, the same that comes from our own skin and lichen. Mushrooms and yeast often yield D2.

Synthetic Vitamin D – To mimic the natural production we find in our skin, scientists irradiate animal fat to stimulate vitamin D3 synthesis. They usually use lanolin, the waxy secretions from sheep skin that keeps wool dry.

Natural Vitamin E – Vitamin E actually refers to 8 different fat soluble compounds and it acts as an antioxidant that protects fats from oxidation. The most biologically active form is found in grains, seeds, and the oils from grains and seeds.

Synthetic Vitamin E – The synthetic dl-alpha tocopherol is created using refined oils, trimethylhydroquinone, and isophytol. It is not as easily absorbed, doesn’t stay as long in tissues, and is quickly dispelled like a toxin or unknown chemical.

Natural Vitamin K – This vitamin is important to proper blood clotting and some metabolic pathways. It is found in dark leafy greens.

Synthetic Vitamin K – Synthetic vitamin K, menadione, comes from coal tar derivatives and genetically modified and hydrogenated soybean oil, and uses hydrochloric acid and nickel. It is considered highly toxic and damages the immune system.

Vitamins should really come from food sources as much as possible. If you want a multivitamin, reach for ones that use whole food sources like holy basil, guava, and other herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Synthetic vitamins are isolated or simulated nutrients that do not take into account all the countless phytonutrients that come along with them. Nature is not a select few things isolated from the rest.

We are only beginning to understand how many of the lesser known compounds in plants react with one another as we eat them, but we do know humanity has been eating whole foods for a very long time. We have evolved to recognize the whole, not just individual chemicals that have been created to approximate an essential Vitamin.& Minerals should be from whole foods.
