Trace Matrix: Fulvic and Minerals For Gentle Detox, Energy & Immune Boost

My latest formulation for Imix, Trace Matrix, contains 70 fulvic ionic trace minerals that are now missing from our soil (thanks to pesticides, herbicides and monocrops).

Bone Matrix Dilution & pH

We recently tested the pH level of the 32 oz bottle of Bone Matrix, and due to it's higher concentration of minerals (most products contain far less minerals per bottle) the pH at its current concentration is 5.5 As you can see from the chart above, that may be a bit more acidic than you [...]

Zinc for Wound Healing, Inflammation, DNA & Immunity

Before launching my new QuikPlus line of atom-sized (nano, angstrom) minerals, I was having some trouble sourcing a supplier who could give me zinc in the concentration I required for Bone Matrix.

Can I take MucosaCalm with steroids or other prescription medications?

Yes, you can take MucosaCalm along with any prescription medications. Regular licorice is contraindicated for steroids, but MucosaCalm contains only Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice, so it is safe to take with any drug.

Issues with MucosaCalm

If you experience an increase in symptoms or diarrhea with MucosaCalm, you may attribute your reaction to Licorice. However, you need to keep in mind that the glycyrrhizin component of licorice has been removed from the licorice contained in MucosaCalm. Hence it only contains deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL). Glycyrrhizin is the component that has been "shown [...]

Bone Matrix vs Bone Support

Although we sold the Mini-Minerals line for many years and I used it myself with good results, I also wondered why other products - like the Angstrom line and Dr. Carolyn Dean's line - tasted so much stronger.

Should I Add Oil to my Absorb Plus Shakes?

We often receive this question from our readers: Should I add oil to my Absorb Plus shakes? What exactly are the benefits? Will it still be considered elemental?

My Experience of an Elemental Diet for Crohn’s Remission

When your digestive tract is inflamed or ulcerated, it becomes very difficult for your body to digest food, or to absorb any nutrients from your food.

Elemental vs. Semi-Elemental vs. Polymeric Diets

As elemental diets grow in popularity - especially for use with SIBO - I've received a few emails from people (and doctors) suggesting that Absorb Plus (Original formula) is not actually an elemental diet product.
