QuikPlus Bone Matrix atom-sized minerals are in the most ideal size and form for absorption – because they do not require digestion. They can be absorbed simply by holding in your mouth, as they are absorbed through the mucosal tissue.
Instead of regular powdered minerals – of which the body can only use/absorb 10-15% – due to their super tiny size (less than 250 picometers) and ionic charge, these singular mineral atoms can pass directly into cell channels. So they are instantly bio-available to build healthy bones and teeth.
My whole family has been using these atom-sized minerals since 2008. They are safe and effective, and the Bone Matrix is a vital part of us avoiding tooth decay!
If you’ve been on steroids for any length of time, or are concerned about Osteoporosis, then supplement with these targeted minerals to rebuild and strengthen your bones. It’s also good for people in disease states to ingest extra minerals to help alkalize the overall body pH.
We used these atom-sized minerals to completely heal and re-mineralize my daughter’s half rotted teeth when she was a toddler. I had transitioned her from breastmilk to diluted rice milk (not realizing how high glycemic it was) and her two front teeth rotted half away and turned brown.
After brushing her teeth each night, I had her swish these minerals around her teeth and hold them in her mouth for as long as she could. At that age she could manage about 30-60 seconds before swallowing. Within a few months, her rotted teeth had turned white and hardened! I remember the dentist tapping on them in amazement.
My 76 year old mother takes Bone Matrix to guard against osteoporosis and my whole family takes it for bone and tooth health. We all use it after brushing out teeth and we swish for 1-2 minutes before swallowing. It has been an integral part of my protocol for healing tooth decay and remaining cavity-free for 5 years and counting!
QuikPlus Bone Matrix is one of the atom-sized mineral products that I formulated for Imix Nutrition, and in doing so I cross-referenced clinical trials with nutritional data gathered by Dr. Weston Price in the 1930’s when he analyzed foods eaten by healthy tribes or villagers (no degenerative disease and a tooth decay rate of less than 1%) to come up with the blend I felt had maximum potency.
However, I was having real difficulty sourcing the nano-sized zinc in the concentration I needed for the copper:zinc ratio. After months of frustration I threw it out to the Universe and asked for a sign as to whether the copper:zinc ratio was as important as I thought it was.
The next day an email arrived in my Inbox from my MD brother – it was an article outlining how autism begins in utero because the copper:zinc ratio is off! I took that as a pretty clear sign and persisted until I found a supplier who could provide exactly what I needed.
This blend of minerals needed to build healthy teeth and bones is very different from standard powdered or colloidal minerals. It is atom-sized (angstrom/nanoparticle-sized – less than 250 picometres in diameter) and ionically charged, so it does not require digestion, won’t build up in your arteries, nor irritate your bowels.
What else do I need for healthy bones?
Aside from the minerals (in the correct ratio) needed to build strong bones and teeth, remember that Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 are also crucial. Sunlight and wild, oily fish are your best sources of D3, but most people living outside the equatorial (tropics) zone also need to supplement with Vitamin D3 – especially in winter.
Food sources for Vitamin K2 include (in order of potency) natto, beef liver, dark meat chicken, hard cheeses, ground beef and egg yolks. Since most people are not consuming natto (fermented soybean paste which stinks!) if you are concerned with osteoporosis, or vegetarian, then it’s a good idea to supplement with adequate K2.
Lastly, try to do some kind of weight bearing activity/exercise. If you don’t like gym workouts, then create some yardwork for yourself, or volunteer at a horse rescue where you can carry buckets and shovel manure. At the very least, get out and walk every day, try to walk uphill a couple times on your route. USING your bones will stimulate them to get stronger and also create more flexibility and resilience in the bone tissue – remember, bone is living connective tissue, not inert or static.
Can I Use QuikPlus Minerals with Absorb Plus?
Yes you can. Here are a few important things to keep in mind:
1. The amounts of all the minerals and vitamins in Absorb Plus are formulated for someone to be able to take a maximum of 12 servings per day, so to even get a daily therapeutic dose of vits/minerals you would need to be consuming at least five shakes per day. Remember, Absorb Plus was formulated to be consumed as an elemental, sole food source.
2. There is very little magnesium in Absorb Plus since people are already on a liquid diet and their bowels are inflamed. Therefore, we do not want to give them diarrhea by giving them a lot of normal magnesium! Remember that the body can only absorb 5-15% of normal magnesium (absorption of magnesium oxide is lowest at 5% and citrate/bisglycinate is highest at 15%) and the rest is throw off into the bowel, where it is irritating and stimulates bowel movement. This is great if you’re constipated, but awful if your bowels are already loose and irritated.
3. There is also very little calcium in Absorb Plus – because ‘normal’ powdered calcium can build up in the arteries and is believed to be a primary cause of heart disease. So even at 5 servings of Absorb Plus per day you are only receiving 250 mg of calcium – way below the 1000 mg per day dosage recommended for osteoporosis-prevention.
So – yes! QuikPlus can be added to any shake or smoothie, juice, tea, soup, or water. BUT if you want the protection against tooth decay, then swish Bone Matrix around your mouth for 1-2 minutes after brushing, then swallow. Don’t drink anything else for 5-10 minutes afterwards.
BONE MATRIX DOSAGE:
1 tbsp (15ml) 1-2 times per day. Shake well. Use as is, or dilute in 1 oz. of water. Swish and hold in mouth for 1-2 minutes before swallowing to benefit teeth. Or add to water, juice, broth, tea, shake or smoothie. For best results, consume away from phytates (grains, legumes).
Calcium: for bone & tooth formation.
Magnesium: essential for uptake of calcium, needed to convert Vit. D3.
Potassium: improves calcium balance.
Manganese: helpful for spinal bone.
Silica: skeletal health and bone formation.
Boron: involved in bone health and calcium metabolism.
Selenium: intake & blood levels are associated with bone density.
Zinc/Copper: copper is an essential trace mineral but must be balanced with the correct ratio of zinc.
Gentle on the bowel: QuikPlus Bone Matrix atom-sized mineral blend does not require digestion as its nano size (less than 250 picometers) means it can be absorbed directly into your cells.
p.s. You may notice your teeth feel a bit ‘sticky’ after swishing with Bone Matrix, this is from the Silica – I put a high dose of silica in Bone Matrix as it is so beneficial for bones, teeth, hair, nails and connective tissue. So yes, it is fine to leave on your teeth after swishing – or you can rinse it off with a mouthful of water, your choice.
